The Littelfuse AF0500 arc flash relay improves worker safety and reduces costly downtime by detecting developing arc flash and sending a trip signal before damage occurs. The AF0500 arc flash relay and sensors are plug-and-play for easy retrofit into existing switchgear or preinstallation in new equipment with little or no configuration. The AF0500 combines zone tripping, tie breaker tripping, upstream breaker tripping, and unrestricted scalability into one product, allowing the user to easily customize to system needs. Using advanced light sensors with Heartbeat fail-safe sensor technology, the AF0500 accurately detects the light of an impending arc flash and trips the breaker in less than 1 ms.
