Arc Flash Hazard

Can HRG Technology play a role in prevention?


Live Webinar

Hosted by EC&M Sponsored by I-Gard

Thursday, April 24, 2008

2:00pm ET | 11:00am PT


ImageAttendees will be provided a short summary of grounding systems with particular emphasis on the prevalence of the solidly grounded system and the inherent arc flash hazard associated with this option.


We will explore the root causes of the hazard and then explore the following statement from the IEEE Std 141-1993 (Red Book)

Recommended Practice for Electric Power Distribution for Industrial Plants


7.2.2 There is no arc flash hazard, as there is with solidly grounded systems, since the fault current is limited to approximately 5A.


Attendees will be provided the rationale and technical understanding of how HRG technology can mitigate and reduce the arc flash hazard and the design considerations to remember when specifying and installing an HRG system.
