Our NETA-accredited servicemen can perform a comprehensive arc flash risk assessment to properly identify hazards, help determine flash protection boundaries, approach distances, incident arc energy, and required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as well as provide mitigation techniques. Assessments include:


  • - Gathering data on electrical distribution systems
  • Compiling results of complex calculations

  • - Accurate system impedance diagram

  • - Short-circuit study

  • - Protective-device coordination

  • - Determination of incident energy

  • - Recommendations and budget for arc flash mitigation solutions

  • - Updated one-line diagram

  • - Customized equipment labels

  • - Employee training

Our mitigation strategies include:


  • - Arc-Detection Relays
  • - Arc-Resistant Equipment
  • - Current-Limiting Fuses
  • - Current-Limiting Reactors
  • - Differential Protection
  • - Increasing Working Distance
  • - Installing Arc-Resistant Equipment
  • - Remote Tracking and Operation
  • - Reducing Fault-Current Levels/Duration
  • - System Coordination Changes
  • - Upgrade to Modern Trip Units

In a second, an arc flash can release a deadly amount of energy, vaporizing metal and blasting super-heated shrapnel outward with explosive force.
