1. Emergency and standby power in hospitals

Consulting engineers who specify emergency power equipment understand that installations for hospitals are required to comply with NFPA 110 in conjunction with NFPA 70. System designers must interpret the requirements of these standards, ensure their designs follow them, and educate their clients about how the standard affects their operations.

2. What's all the fuss about arc flash and electrical safety?

Everyone is aware of the shock hazard that is present with electrical equipment, but how aware are you of the arc flash hazard that may be present?

3. Getting equipment SCCR code requirements right

Complying with the latest NEC and OSHA requirements will improve equipment protection, electrical safety, and power reliability.

4. Integration: HVAC fans and smoke control

Fire, life safety, and HVAC systems must be integrated by the engineer to achieve reliability in smoke control systems. This includes mechanical equipment, physical barriers, or a combination of both.

5. Fire and life safety in data centers

The Consulting-Specifying Engineer 2015 Fire and Life Safety Study indicated that 46% of engineers specify, design, or make product selections for data centers.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, November 9-15, for articles published within the last two months.
