ARC FLASH STUDY
Pioneer Power Group provides arc flash calculations as required by the NFPA-70E Standard for electrical equipment locations such as panelboards, switchboards, switchgear, motor control centers, enclosed circuit breakers, fused disconnect switches and large starters/drives. These results help qualified workers understand potential electrical hazards and determine the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) required to work safely.
Selecting appropriate PPE for each location is critical. Too little PPE could result in a severe injury to a worker if an arc flash event were to occur. Too much PPE becomes cumbersome for workers, limits dexterity and increases the risk of the worker causing an arc flash event to occur.
Pioneer Power Group supplies an arc flash label to be applied on each equipment location considered in the study. This ensures all critical arc flash hazard information is immediately available without having to reference back to the study. Pioneer Power’s labels also include information on the electrical shock hazard at each equipment location to further assist electrical personnel in maintaining a safe work environment.
“The Pioneer Power Group Team goes above and beyond to help us with timely quotes that always cover what is required in the specifications. In this day and age when some sort of study is required on most new switchgear projects, it is great to have a vendor you can always count on for competitive pricing and quick response times!”
