While the datasheet says a program voltage of 48V (actually –48V), that's with another of the chips supplies at +12V, so there's a voltage difference at the chip of 60V.
Different programmer designs can shift the voltages different ways relative to GND.
A (period) programmer design I've looked at uses 0, +48, +60; while if one is looking at the datasheet it's –48, 0, +12.
