What Is Arc Flash?
An arc flash occurs when an electrical short-circuit produces a high-energy, high-temperature explosion. These occurrences are known to propel molten metal and other debris through the air, endangering anyone nearby. Explosions of this nature can damage a person’s eyesight, hearing and even cause severe burning or death.
Arc flash hazards are not limited to a specific equipment or utility type. Any electrical device utilizing 50V or more is capable of producing an arc flash. Breakers, MCCs, switchboards, transformers, drive cabinets and any other electrical devices presenting an arc flash hazard should be properly identified with Arc flash warning labels. Mechanics, electricians, cleaning staff or operating personnel (i.e. anyone passing near electrical equipment) can be exposed to an arc flash explosion.
