Understand arc flash safety for motor control centers to enhance personnel safety, protect equipment for reliable operations
An arc flash is associated with the explosive release of energy caused by an electrical arc, due to either a phase-to-ground or a phase-to-phase fault. This kind of fault can result from many factors – a dropped tool, accidental contact with electrical systems, buildup of conductive dust, corrosion or improper work conditions.
As personnel perform regular maintenance on electrical equipment, it is crucial that they are aware of arc flash dangers, know how to avoid them and use equipment designed to minimize arc flash risks.
There are guidelines for arc flash prevention and equipment that are intended to help prevent injury and protect equipment. However there is room for interpretation and the applicable standards and guidelines can be confusing. Learn more to enhance personnel safety and protect equipment by downloading this whitepaper.
