ArcFlash™ Features

SmartClick™ Technology

  • Double-click any bus or device to see PPE, arc hazard, and arc boundary requirements

Industry-Standard Compliance

  • Includes the latest calculation standards

  • IEEE-1584 and NFPA 70E

Calculation Options and Techniques

  • Automatic calculations of bus and branch arcing currents, with protective device clearing times determined for accurate arc energies

  • Full ANSI-standard short-circuit calculations

  • Model ANSI short-circuit calculations using momentary (full motor contributions), interrupting (only motors >50 HP) or 30-cycle currents (no motors) for unmatched flexibility

  • Option to include or exclude buses/equipment from calculations

  • Automatically and correctly selects the fastest protective trip times (for single-source systems) no matter how many protective devices

  • Selects the slowest protective device (for multiple sources) for “worst-case” hazards

  • Fuses and breakers can be modeled using current-limiting equations

  • Model differential (87), partial differential, arc flash (light) sensing, zone interlocking (ZSI), and other instantaneous sensing devices

  • Display of bus-based or detailed arc flash values

Exhaustive and User-Definable Library

  • Thousands of pre-loaded and user-definable equipment types and arc gaps (switchgear, MCCs, panels, VFD, and more)

  • Measurement units (mm, cm, meters, inches, feet)

  • Arc flash boundary energy

  • Fault types (3-phase, line-line, line-ground, and double-line-ground)

  • Multiple working distances for each voltage level or user-defined distances for specific equipment

Arc Flash Labels | Create, Print, Store

  • Automatically prints ANSI Z535-compliant arc flash labels

  • Fully customizable label templates—any language, any graphic

  • Direct output on high-quality UV-resistant vinyl labels to Brady printers

  • Direct output to SafetyCal laser print labels

  • Multicolor printing

Reporting

  • Detailed spreadsheet provides at-a-glance arc flash calculations for easy review: NFPA 70E flash boundaries, incident energies, PPE requirements, approach boundaries, and more

  • Reports can include detailed let-through energy for all devices, worst-case bus values, or worst-case line-side values

  • ScenarioManager™ provides detailed comparison of all facility operating conditions for one-touch verification

  • Reporting in English or metric units

Energized Work Permits | Create, Print, Store

  • Create and print NFPA 70E-compliant energized work permits with built-in templates

  • Includes calculated flash hazard boundaries, incident energy, PPE requirements, shock hazard voltage, approach boundaries (limited, restricted, and prohibited)

  • NFPA 70E-compliant documentation in auto-generated Word documents

  • Link work permits to the one-line equipment for easy access

User-Definable Work Permit Library

  • Extensive customizable library for hundreds of specific work tasks

  • Work tasks can be tailored for specifc equipment types

  • Detailed job descriptions and safety procedures stored for each task

  • HRC (Hazard Reduction – risk assessment) substantiation

  • Determine voltage-rated gloves and tool requirements

  • Library stores clothing levels and descriptions for application to work permits and labels

Hyperlink Documents to the One-Line | One Place, One Click

  • Store all important documents right on the one-line

  • Maintenance records, instruction manuals, lockout/tagout procedures, pictures, and more

  • Convenient mouse-click access for all plant personnel

  • Comply with regulations easily and quickly

Built-In Prompts | Identify, Review, Prepare

  • Identify potential hazards

  • Check job plans

  • Review steps to protect workers

  • Prepare for emergencies

ArcFlash also includes Integrated One-Line, SmartBreaker™, ScenarioManager™, MCC and Panel Schedules, and SendCAD™.
