Preventing Arc Faults in Electrical Installations

“A gas discharge between two electrodes!” This is the definition of an electric arc. If an arc like this occurs in an environment involving high energies, an enormously hot plasma with extremely strong luminosity is created through which current flows continuously. The arc also creates a massive pressure wave that results in a loud bang. This undesirable occurrence in electrical installations is correspondingly dangerous. It is referred to in this context as an arc fault. In addition to the significant damage that such arc faults can cause in the affected installations themselves, they also pose a direct threat to the life and limb of everyone who carries out their work in environments of this nature. As a specialist for electrical occupational safety, Dehn assists in creating a comprehensive arc fault protection concept to ensure better protection for people and installations.
