What is Arc Flash?

Arc flash is a dangerous electrical event that occurs when there is a rapid release of energy caused by a fault in an electrical system. This can result in an explosion of intense heat, light, and pressure that can cause burns, damage to equipment, and even death. Arc flash can be caused by a number of factors, including equipment malfunction, improper maintenance, human error, or environmental conditions such as dust or moisture. Preventing arc flash requires proper electrical system design, installation, and maintenance, as well as appropriate protective equipment and safety procedures for workers who may be exposed to arc flash hazards.
