What is an arc flash?

An arc flash is an electrical accident that creates a high-temperature explosion. It can vaporize surrounding metal, set fires, and result in severe burns. Although rare, arc flashes can have grave consequences so you need to ensure your people and site are always protected.

An arc flash can happen during abnormal use due to a corruption of isolation, or in circumstances involving animals, flooding, vibrations, or corrosion. Yet, it can also occur during commissioning or maintenance, rendering equipment unusable and forcing costly downtime with serious economic consequences.
