FYI. National Electrical Installation Standards(NEIS) are also ANSI standards. NECA 100-1999 is "Symbols for Electrical Construction Drawings". We recently purchased a set of the available standards for our reference library, and are exploring the integration into our specifications and drawings. Hopefully, this will translate into fewer contradictions and mistakes, less work for our engineers and designers, and easier comprehension by our and other field construction personel. Go to the NEIS site for more info. The use of a nationally recognized standard assures all users nationwide to be on the "same page" when using or creating construction drawings. I admire your efforts, Scott, and your symbols may in fact mirror those in the above standard.

Warren, I have a problem with the whole NEIS concept. I work for a NECA contractor and have not hearted on peep about this ongoing saga from them. (I have seen it for quite a while in e-mails) At $20 - $25 a piece I personally am not going to be buying any of them any time soon. So, how do we, the field work force, install anything in compliance with these standards when they are not marketed to us and are out of reach financially for the few of us that care? Last week I went to our San Diego office to help on a bid for a large pharmaceutical company. We had to do an interview/presentation and I went as the proposed GF. The specs were full of references to installing per these NEIS standards. When I inquired to the higher ups about it, they were surprised I even knew what they were. Yes the office has been collecting them as they come out but the must be some deep dark secret or something because most of us in the field have never laid eyes on one. Let alone gear our installations to comply.
