Welcome to the forum, and Kelly is probably one of the best to answer your specifics.
I think you will pretty much draw a blank on a Utopian general reference book. Probably the best you can do is to get as many spec sheets from as many manufacturers as you can. You cold of course purchase the Technical Specs books from the relevant Standards Institutions of the Countries you are working with, but that will run to some big bucks.
Probably best to take it on an ad-hoc basis job by job and build your own reference bookshelf from manufacturers specs as each job comes in.
