James has written several books to help those working with temporary power systems understand the requirements of the relevant British Standards.

  • The new 5th Edition of the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment sees a considerable change in what was colloquially referred to as ‘PAT testing’. The new edition focusses more on holistic equipment management and maintenance and moves away from the concept of portable appliance safety.
  • The IET Practitioner’s guide to temporary power systems is a new toolbox-sized spiral bound guide which is aimed at those working on site who need ready answers to a range of questions from generator earthing to emergency lighting.
  • The 2014 IET Guide to temporary power systems was the UK’s first guide book aimed specifically at those dealing with temporary power, at events and similar situations. It is a comprehensive book covering all aspects of temporary power design, management and installation, including mobile units.
  • The DMX-512A Handbook, published in 2013, is a paperback guide to the new DMX512-A (RDM) standard, aimed at all levels of reader.
