There are a large amount of companies purporting to offer symbol sets or drawing packages for CAD enabling you to draw to JIC standards and client that require drawings to JIC. The problem is there seems to be lots of different intepretations of these standards so I'm trying to find a copy of JIC standards with reference to Controls drawings (symbols etc). Can anyone recomend a web site with this information or a book.
I have a copy of 1960 standard published in the Electro-Technology April 1967 issue.
I am looking for an update too. Has anyone found it yet?
I have been looking for about 1 year. I have been led to believe the JIC Electrical Standards has been absorbed into the NFPA 79 Electrical standards for industrial machinery
I have JIC ELECTRONIC STANDARDS for MASS PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT and GENERAL PURPOSE MACHINE TOOLS EL-1-71
JIC HYDRAULIC STANDARDS for INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT and GENERAL PURPOSE MACHINE TOOLS H-1-1973
JIC PNEUMATIC STANDARDS for INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT and GENERAL PURPOSE MACHINE TOOLS P-1-1975
We are looking for the same JIC document, any luck ? We find for ISA, IEC, etc, but still looking for JIC
The JIC Standard has not been published since 1968 unless someone know different. IEEE is now the standard for electrical Symbols.
I have a hard copy of JIC Mass Production Equipment EMP-1-67 and General Purpose Machine Tools EGP-1-67
The NFPA carries the Electrical Standards for
Industrial Machinery. NFPA 79 is the latest. These
used to be known as the the JIC standard.
I agree! I am preparing a handbook book on this subject with comprehensive CAD symbols for these and other industrial symbols and coding methods. I have found an info page from "AMT" as follows:
JIC standards of 1973 now obsolete and replaced by the NFPA committeE versions and available from ANSI.---
ANSI(NFPA/JIC) T2.24.1 and perhaps others.
If you find a DVD for this let me know.
JIC is no longer a standards organization the NFPA now has that standard. The problem is the NFPA keeps just a small portion of symbols that was in the JIC. At one time I taught classes to the electricians at Amana. They had to deal with so many different drawings from different manufactures with different symbols I had made up booklets with the symbols from JIC standards and NFPA standards.
If you want a copy of the old JIC standards (which is the best reference in my opinion) you can down load them from the following website:
I hope this helps
JIC stands for Joint Industrial Council, and was an association formed by the US Auto Manufacturers, Ford, GM, Chrysler, and a few others somewhere around 1950. The original JIC specs were written to assure that machinery in auto assembly plants was designed and built to assure common design, reliability, and ease of maintenance. Although safety issues were incorporated into the specs, they were not primarily safety specs. The last JIC electrical specs were published in 1968, and JIC was dissolved in the early 1980s. The JIC electrical spec was absorbed into NFPA 79 in the early 1980s.

JIC was not so much absorbed into NFPA79 as it was replaced by it and UL508a for the electrical parts of JIC. JIC covered more than just electrical work though.
Most people do not realize that both UL508a and NFPA79 are less stringent than JIC was. For instance, JIC required a minimum wire size of #12 in almost all cases. This became unsupportable when higher density PLC I/O modules came along.
