An arc flash is a mass of heat and pressure caused by a switchgear fault, not only does it cause power outages but it can also result in loss of business, extensive material damage and can seriously jeopardise the safety of operational staff. VAMP’s arc detection and protection system measures fault current and light via arc sensor channels and should a fault occur, minimises burning time by quickly cutting off the current feeding the arc. Traditional arc protection methods do not provide fast enough protection and short arc burning times are critical, especially when the arc develops during maintenance work on the switchgear, jeopardising personal safely and life. The unique arc fault functionality adds a new dimension to the total safety of the installation and the reliability of the power system protection. Secure your assets, the safety of staff and the future of your power system today with VAMP’s ultra-fast arc protection products.
