Arc flash research paper is available online, documenting findings regarding low-voltage arc flash testing using the standard IEEE 1584 test procedure, but with the electrode tips terminated in an insulating barrier instead of in the open air. This configuration is believed to be more representative of equipment in low-voltage industrial control panels and MCCs. For a copy of the paper from Ferraz Shawmut, click here .

Consulting application guide is 14thedition of a 1,616-page resource that helps consultants design and specify the manufacturer’s electrical distribution systems. The guide can be used as a reference tool for effectively outfitting a facility’s electrical distribution system. The first chapter of the guide includes over one hundred pages of educational information about the requirements, safety hazards and regulations concerning electrical distribution systems.

Safety terminal enclosure catalog offers 90 pages, detailing more than 500 increased-safety terminal enclosures and systems. The catalog also includes primers on Increased safety, covering its design principles, areas of use, applicable standards, testing, hazardous location marking for NEC Article 505, CENELEC and ATEX approvals. Increased-safety enclosures are intended to house electrical equipment that will not generate an arc or spark during normal operation and in which surface temperatures are controlled below incendive values.
