Orlando and Tampa: Automation / Concepts of the NEC for Florida Engineering Society


4.Blurb 4

Join us with the Florida Engineering Society for your continuing education credits:

  • September 11: Orlando at FL Hotel & Conference Center, 1500 Sand Lake Road
  • September 13: Tampa at Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore, 225 North Lois Ave.

We'll be speaking about:

First Session: Automation, Cloud and Real Time: Technology for Electrical Engineering

Second Session: Conceptualizing the NEC: Translation to Code

Initially, we'll discuss how automation with 7 +million calculations makes electrical engineering easier, faster, smarter and greener. You'll even get to see the first automatic, graphic and real time 1 Line Diagram.

Then, we'll turn to the NEC for a discussion of how it is organized...the concepts behind the PowerCalc software. This includes a discussion of the NEC's dual purposes of safety and cost/resource effective design.

For engineers who design facilities, we promise a compelling discussion. Hope to meet our colleagues, and will work on a video to share with those who cannot attend.

The Florida Engineering Society has put together an incredible program.
