Lineman/Cableman Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook
Eleventh Edition
by Thomas Shoemaker

Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook is the definitive guide to distribution and transmission line technology--this new edition fully updated!

Completely revised to reflect the 2012 National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), The Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook, 12th Edition provides in-depth information on overhead and underground distribution and transmission lines. The latest OSHA, ANSI, and ASTM standards are emphasized throughout.

This authoritative resource presents basic principles, equipment, standards, and safety regulations, allowing electrical workers to avoid costly errors, diagnose and repair power failures, and ensure optimum safety. A wealth of illustrations and photographs make it easy to understand the material, and self-test questions and exercises help reinforce key concepts.
