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 .
