What is ARC Flash Study?

ARC Flash Study analyses potential electrical arc flash events within your power system using advanced software. They calculate the intensity, energy release, and hazardous zone boundaries of these explosive arcs, revealing areas where personnel could be injured. This proactive assessment empowers you to implement effective safety measures like appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and safe work procedures, preventing injury and ensuring compliance with vital electrical safety regulations like NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584.
