What are Electrical Material Specifications?
Electrical Material Specifications are specifications
that supplement the Department's Standard Specifications for
material that are utilized in electrical work, including signals,
lighting, and ITS facilities. All these specifications are federally
approved. These specifications describe minimum acceptable design
and operating requirements for each piece of equipment. All
the specifications have an effective date and are in both Metric
Units and U.S Customary English Units.
What are EE Approval Numbers?
Materials and equipment that meet the requirements
of the Electrical Specifications are evaluated and those that
are approved items are given an EE Approval Number, and then
added to a database listing. This database of qualified products
is helpful to designers and contractors in the selection of
products that are pre-qualified for use in Department projects.
How can products become part of the EE listing?
Products that can be added to this database are
any product that is utilized in electrical related design, that
meet the Electrical Material Specifications. Examples: traffic
poles, arms, fixtures, controllers, LED's, variable message
signs, signal hardware, etc. The products and/or documents must
be submitted to NJDOT for review, with a letter certifying that
the submitted product meets the applicable Electrical Material
What are Standard Electrical Details?
Electrical Standard Details are drawings that show
construction installation for electrical related design. All
details are in .dgn format in the Departments CADD standards.
All the details have an effective date and are in both Metric
Units and U.S Customary English Units. These are referenced
standards for use by contractors and designers, and are not
attached with the plans for each project. The project documents
must include any new details or any modifications to the Standard
