An arc fault happens when electric current flows through air gaps between conductors. Arc flashes often occur when racking in a breaker, performing switching, Insulation failure, accidents caused by touching a test probe to the wrong surface or slipped (non-insulated) tools.
In its most basic form, an arc is made up of four elements:
- Thermal energy (heat)
- Acoustical energy (sound)
- Pressure wave and debris
Each of these elements can cause serious injury or death to a person.
The Arc Flash Hood/Faceshield is available as part of the Arc Flash Suit or individually. Arc Flash Suits are designed by experts to be effective, yet easy to put on over everyday workwear.
