The Arc Quenching Switchgear is Game Changing Technology
For those that have experienced an arc flash incident you know the impact it can have on your facility and more important to the personnel that potentially could be exposed to these events. Many times, when an arc flash incident happens equipment is lost, and down time can be excessive while repairs are made, or new gear is located. This could lead to extensive downtime and cost company’s significant revenue.
Eaton’s latest solution in low voltage switchgear is the Arc Quenching Switchgear which creates a low impedance path for the arc to travel and with their latest technology “quenches” the flash inside their arc quenching device. This saves the equipment in the lineup from any damage and more importantly keeps you and your personnel safe if such an instance occurs.
Presenting this technology is Page Sigmon who is the Product Line Sales Manager for Low Voltage Switchgear at Eaton. This presentation also includes a hand on demonstration of the technology to help visualize how the technology keeps you and your facility safe.
