What are the reasons for arc faults?
Arc flashes are often caused by errors made when working on the switchgear assembly, contaminants, foreign objects like forgotten tools, or by animals getting into the assembly. This means that even the most modern switchgear assemblies are at risk.
An arc fault protection system gives you the safety you need
- to effectively protect your staff
- to optimise the availability of the switchgear assembly and
- to design in conformity with valid regulations.
Different protective systems are available depending on the purpose of application and power density of the switchgear assembly to suit the individual situation and type of system.
