Reduced minimum thickness of concrete bases to 3.5 inches unless otherwise indicated on the Drawings.
Rev. 3-
  • Revised to address requirements in ASCE 7-2010. ASCE-7-2010 is not yet a required document for LANL, but the seismic design requirements for nonstructural (e.g. electrical) components are MUCH clearer than in the 2005 edition.  It makes sense to incorporate these changes into Section 26 0529:  the overall reduction of ambiguity and the reduction of some requirements more than balances the increase in some seismic design requirements in ASCE 7-2010.
  • Revised specifiers’ notes to clarify that this specification section only applies to hangers and supports for electrical components that are EXEMPT from requirements for seismic designed anchors. Revised specifiers’ notes to more clearly indicate the attributes of electrical components that would exempt them from requirements to have seismic designed anchors in light of ASCE 7-2010. Relocated and revised specifiers’ notes that identify the kinds of electrical components that typically require seismic designed anchors.
  • Added ASCE 7 to the list of codes and standards in QUALITY ASSURANCE.
  • Added requirement for swivel hangers to eliminate inelastic bending of hanger rods that are not seismically braced.

  • Added requirement for flexible conduit sections where raceways cross expansion joints or seismic joints, where they are attached to parts of the structure with a potential for differential seismic displacement, and where they connect to equipment with designed anchors (seismic controls) or vibration isolators.  This is driven by requirements in ASCE 7 Chapter 13.
  • Added references to new LANL Master Specification Section 26 0548 – Vibration and Seismic Controls for Electrical Systems.
  • Clarified requirement for installation of pull boxes to comply with limits on conduit bends and distance between pull points in the CONDUIT INSTALLATION article of the Section.
  • Deleted the requirement to use RGS or RMC below 8 ft above the floor where exposed indoors. This requirement, which was added in Rev 2, has proven to be impractical in application: there were many, many questions about labs and mechanical room locations where the probability of severe physical damage to EMT is low.
  • Simplified requirements for concrete-encasement material and installation requirements.
  • Deleted detailed firestopping material and installation requirements from this Section and referred to Section 07 8400 - Firestopping. Clarified procedure for inspection of electrical firestopping installations.
Rev. 4 - Expanded acceptable materials for certain cast electrical boxes to include "grey cast iron" where only malleable cast iron had been specified. Teh cast iron boxes will provide satisfactory service at substantially lower cost.

Identification for Electrical Systems Rev. 1-added NFPA 70E to regulatory requirements, moved coordination requirements from Part 3 to Part 1, added "instructions to specifier " throughout the document, added requirement for "wiring system color code labels," revised arc-flash and shock hazard warning labels to align with NFPA 70E and LANL ISD 101-13, added requirement that materials for warning labels comply with UL969, made paint the accepted method for working space floor marking, provided option to delete Category 1 nameplates from equipment where circuit directory information is provided on the arc-flash and shock hazard warning labels. Updated terminology to be consistent with proforma (Subcontractor, STR, etc.)
Rev. 2 -
  • In paragraph 2.3-A.1 changed the voltage notation on Category 1 equipment nameplates to match IEEE standard system voltages (e.g. 208Y/120V, 480Y/277V, 120/240V, etc.)
  • Just before paragraph 2.10-D added detailed instructions to the specification editor concerning Arc Flash and Shock Hazard Warning Label Design #1. (Design #1 will be used for most of the labels where a calculation is performed.)
  • Arc flash warning label design changed to align with LANL P101-13.1 – Electrical Safety Program.
  • In paragraph 2.10-D modified Arc Flash and Shock Hazard Warning Label Design #1 so it could be printed on 4” x 6” label stock; it was necessary to delete the “served from” and “serves” information. Added a space where the basis of the arc flash calculation could be indicated; this is to address temporarily setting circuit breakers in an energy-reducing maintenance mode. Added statement that AR clothing and PPE have an arc rating greater than or equal to the incident energy. Expanded “operations with doors closed” to “circuit breaker, fused switch, starter, or meter switch operation with doors closed and covers on.” Added a line for the Maximum Available Fault Current to meet new requirements in the 2011 National Electrical Code.
  • Just before paragraph 2.10-E added detailed instructions to the specification editor concerning Arc Flash and Shock Hazard Warning Label Design #2. (Design #2 will be used where a calculation is not required because the equipment is served by a 208Y/120V transformer that is smaller than 125 kVA. We anticipate this label can be printed in large quantities and applied to equipment based on examination of the system one-line diagram.)
  • In paragraph 2.10-E modified Arc Flash and Shock Hazard Warning Label Design #2 to delete the “served from” and “serves” information. Deleted the line that had indicated the NFPA 70E Hazard Risk Category; replace the line with two lines: (1) PPE to wear for operations with the cover on, and (2) PPE to wear with the equipment cover open.
  • Just before paragraph 2.10-F added detailed instructions to the specification editor concerning Arc Flash and Shock Hazard Warning Label Design #3. (Design #3 will be used where the arc-flash incident energy would require more than 40 cal/cm2 PPE.)
  • In paragraph 2.10-F modified Arc Flash and Shock Hazard Warning Label Design #3 so it could be printed on 4” x 6” label stock; it was necessary to delete the “served from” and “serves” information. Changed the word messages to indicate that energized work (diagnostic or repair) is prohibited. Expanded “operations with doors closed” to “circuit breaker, fused switch, starter, or meter switch operation with doors closed and covers on.” Added a line for the Maximum Available Fault Current to meet new requirements in the 2011 National Electrical Code.
  • In paragraph 3.1-C revised existing work requirement to include replacing missing, damaged, or faded identification items.
  • In paragraph 3.11 added more detailed instructions to the specification editor about information to be placed on arc flash warning labels.
