Rapid Arc Flash Detection

Rapid arc flash detection and protection offer very fast and reliable interruption of an arc fault by tripping the upstream supply of energy to the faulted compartment.
With a well-designed rapid arc flash system in place, an arc fault event can be interrupted in as little as 40-50ms compared to a full second without.

Benefits:

  • Protects the switchgear.
  • Enhanced operator protection and safety.
  • Scalable, further arc sensors can be added in stages.
  • Minimises the amount of energy released.
