The inoRAC2™ operates MV/LV circuit breakers while allowing operators to be at a safe distance from energized switchgear, eliminating the risk of injury from Arc Flash. It utilizes the latest position control and monitoring technology to protect the circuit breaker from damage during operations and requires no switchgear modifications.

Here are a few questions to determine if your Arc Flash Safety Plan is accurate & up-to-date:


Have Arc Flash and Short Circuit Calculations been performed for this site in the past 5 years? 
Are supervisory personnel aware of the latest Arch Flash regulations & requirements and is equipment correctly labeled, and in compliance with these regulations?
Have all site personnel been trained on arc flash hazards and do they have access to proper personal protective equipment (PPE)?
Are there existing written safety procedures for energized/de-energized processes available to personnel?
Are universal safety precautions followed, such as proper equipment grounding and periodic relay calibration & testing?
Are you confident that you are reducing your incident energy effectively?

How did your site measure up?

Did you answer "No" to any of the above questions? If so share your Arc Flash Hazard Analysis for your site below.

This is a great post! Every HSE (safety) Manager should be required to answer those questions. I think we've probably all have seen the incredible (and sad) videos of arc flash accidents. It is hard NOT to justify remote racking. I wish I could count the times I racked breakers in cotton coveralls with nylon around its middle while rocking and rolling under the sea in a submarine. Those were the days and boy am I glad they are gone! I had no idea back then! Thanks for the videos as well.
