- NEC has Acronyms for Other Important Safety Devices Such as the GFI (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter – GFCI) Outlet for Bathrooms and Other Locations
- NEC Acronym Approval for SKYX’s Ceiling Outlet as WSCR Signifies Key Milestone for its Standardization Process
Miami, FL, September 13, 2022 – SKYX Platforms Corp.(NASDAQ: SKYX) (d/b/a “Sky Technologies”) (“SKYX,” “we” or “the Company”), a highly disruptive platform technology company with over 60 issued and pending patents globally for simplifying and enhancing safety and automation in homes and buildings, today announced that the National Electrical Code® (NEC) has voted to approve SKYX’s generic names for its weight-bearing safe plug & play outlet/receptacle for ceilings as WSCR (Weight-Supporting Ceiling Receptacle) for its universal ceiling outlet and WSAF (Weight-Supporting Attachment Fitting) for its ceiling plug as part of SKYX’s standardization process. The NEC has acronyms for other important safety devices such as the GFI outlet (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter – GFCI) for bathrooms, kitchens, and other locations.
With a market of hundreds of millions of installations of light fixtures and ceiling fans in the U.S. alone, a safe plug & play installation method is a necessity. It will save lives, significantly reduce injuries, ladder falls, electrocutions, fires, and other hazardous incidents.
The NEC also acknowledges SKYX’s recently announced historic addition of the specifications of its weight-bearing safe plug & play outlet/receptacle by leading U.S. standardization organizations for homes and buildings ANSI / NEMA. Examples of other products that have standardized specifications include the household wall outlet and the GFI bathroom and kitchen outlets that are included in every home in the U.S.

Mark Earley, former Chief Electrical Engineer at NFPA, former Head of the NEC, and current Chair of the SKYX Safety Advisory Board, said: “This is a very important milestone for SKYX’s standardization process as well as for the safety of U.S. consumers and professionals. Based on the safety aspects provided by SKYX’s weight-supporting ceiling receptacle, I expect that the acronym WSCR to be a household name in U.S. homes and buildings, just as the GFCI is. When using traditional wiring methods, common risks include injuries and deaths from fires, shocks, electrocutions, and falls from ladders. These risks can be significantly reduced by using the SKYX safe plug and play installation method, that also saves on installation time, which substantially reduces time spent on ladders.”
Rani Kohen, Founder and Executive Chairman of SKYX Platforms, said: “The NEC’s vote to approve generic names for our ceiling outlet and plug products represents a significant milestone in the Company’s path to helping homes and buildings become safer and smarter as a standard. People view products such as the GFCI or GFI – as many call the electrical outlet for bathrooms and kitchens – as being necessary to promote safety and peace of mind. We are encouraged by the NEC’s support of our WSCR, and similar to the GFI, hope to make our technology a standard in every home and building, as our technology will save lives, substantially reduce injuries, electrocutions, ladder falls, fires and other hazardous incidents that can happen while installing light fixtures and ceiling fans. In addition to making these installations safer, our plug & play technology simplifies the installation process, driving savings of both time and money.”
