Arc Flash Services

An arc flash is a sudden release of heat and energy caused by an electric arc. The explosion is commonly triggered by equipment failure, sparks, corrosion, condensation, dust or other impurities on the surface of a conductor. Arc flashes can lead to serious injury, equipment damage, lost production, downtime and fines. Offered through industry-leading, third-party service providers, our Arc Flash Services* can help you address NFPA 70E electrical safety compliance issues and arc flash hazards in your facility.
