What is an Arc Flash Hazard?
An arc flash hazard is a dangerous condition associated with the release of energy caused by an electric arc.
This explosive condition includes a broad spectrum of electromagnetic energy, plasma, fragments and a spray of molten materials.
When an electric current passes through the air between ungrounded conductors or between ungrounded and grounded conductors.
Temperatures can reach 35,000 degree Fahrenheit making exposure to this extreme thermal energy hazardous.
For electric arc protection, NFPA70E hazard risk category 1 and 2 (EAARC1210) and hazard risk category 2 (EAARC1210C).
