An arc flash is caused by current flowing between two conducting surfaces and most commonly occurs in switchgear as a result of faulty equipment or poor work practices. Left unchecked, arc flashes release a tremendous amount of energy in a high-pressure blast of heat and debris, which can result in serious injuries to workers and damage to ...

Remote operating panels: Safety of personnel from arc flash hazards can be ensured by providing remote operating panels from which all manual operation of the switchgear can be performed. The remote panels must be located at a safe distance from the switchgear or in a separate room.

Magnum DS Family of Low Voltage Switchgear Eaton's Magnum DS family of Low Voltage Switchgear provides centralized control and protection of low voltage power equipment and circuits in industrial, commercial, and utility installations involving generators, motors, feeder circuits, and transmission and distribution lines.

Unlike traditional arc-resistant switchgear, Eaton's Arc Quenching system is designed to minimize or completely eliminate damage to switchgear in the event of an arc flash. As a result, the switchgear can be quickly returned to service after an arc flash event to minimize downtime and repair costs.
