An arc flash is a mass of heat and pressure caused by a switchgear fault. Not only does it cause power outages, but it can also result in loss of business, extensive material damage, and can seriously jeopardize the safety of operational staff. Should a fault occur, arc flash protection minimizes burning time by quickly tripping the circuit breaker, cutting off the current feeding the arc. Short arc burning times are critical, especially when the arc develops during maintenance work on the switchgear, causing property damages. The unique arc fault functionality adds a new dimension to the total protection and reliability of the power distribution installation.
