NFPA 79, Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery, includes updates for requirements that deal with the full spectrum of equipment-from single-motored drill presses to complex automated manufacturing systems. This must-have companion to both NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC®), and NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®, is newly revised to contend with new technologies and their effects on electrical safety. Help ensure essential protection for operators, equipment, facilities, and work in progress.

The 2024 edition includes:
- New section in Chapter 4 regarding cybersecurity considerations
- Clarification on the use of control circuit conductor protection in Chapter 7
- Metric measurements revised to soft conversions in Chapter 11 to avoid potential negative safety impact
- Removal of the term hazardous from Chapter 7 and replacement of the term conductor with wire in Chapter 12
- Revisions to the use of proximity switches and listed splicing wire connectors
- Updated Chapter 15 to clarify the application of externally supplied lighting circuit overcurrent protection
