White paper examines use of current-limiting devices to guard against arc flash events

Reprints

A new white paper from G&W Electric focuses on the benefits of using current-limiting devices in low-voltage settings as compared to conventional devices such as circuit breakers, current-limiting fuses or expulsion fuses.

The white paper provides considerations for operators and safety personnel when specifying a current-limiting device for their facility. It also details dangers associated with arc flash events and provides facility operators and safety personnel with published OSHA standards and National Fire Protection Association’s guidelines on mitigating against arc flash events.
