PCX, a leader in prefabricated electrical switchboards and power centers, created an “Arc Flash Safety” infographic to help spread the word about the dangers of arc flash. PCX can perform an arc flash study for your system. An arc flash study is a risk analysis that is performed by an electrical engineer can help prevent injury. A correctly executed study can help improve plant safety by identifying the specific arc flash hazard at a given piece of equipment. It identifies the Arc Flash Protection Boundary, which is the closest approach allowed before PPE must be worn.
Did you know that approximately five burns a day are treated in North America due to arc flash hazards? An effective safety program, which includes an arc flash study, can substantially reduce risk for employees working with live equipment.
Performing an arc flash study – including calculations – can be a daunting task. Our new e-book, “Engineering Challenges of Performing Accurate Arc Flash Studies,” provides a step-by-step guide for performing arc flash studies. Each step has its own criteria for data input, analysis and data output.
In this 15-page e-book, we’ve used tables and software screenshots to help you understand:
