Start A Proper Safety Precaution Regarding Arc Flashes With The Arc Flash Analysis and Training With R&R Electric

Posted by Arnold Vargas on March 7, 2018 in Services |

Time and time again we’ve seen people get injured by the very means of electricity. People often treat this as a minority report and hence the frequency of people getting injured with powerful voltage or currents is very high. A common misunderstanding about electrical appliances is that they have fuses or some safety mechanism to protect their users. Well actually most of them don’t, and if you don’t take proper precautions, you might electrocuted. As we’ve seen on numerous occasions that tap water is a fairly good electrical conductor. So touching the switch with your bare wet fingers might actually induce an arc flash.

Now you might be asking, what is an arc flash? Well as part of an arc flash analysis , or usually called a flashover is usually caused by two highly conductive materials that don’t touch each other and has low circuit impedance that is enough to trigger a discharge between the air gap of the two materials cashing a spark. Many might not realise this especially when switching on a broken circuit breaker. The moment you turn on the circuit broken breaker, it induces an arc flash in the breaker itself sometimes enough to cause an arc blast. Although an arc flash can be deadly, arc blast is way more dangerous as the name implies- a blast.

Ergo, why not take an arc flash study precaution training provided by a company called R&R Electric. The special training on arc flash is called the NFPA 70E Arc Flash Training which use high tech equipment such as a thermography scan to further analyse the problem and LED Retrofit is also a service done by them. By entering this course you will know how to identify the cause of arc flash and electric hazard, knowing what equipment works best for the precaution step, and take appropriate measures in the likelihood of an arc flash.
