Everyone deserves to go home without injury at the end of the (working) day

Do you have the necessary knowledge about arc flashes?


What is an arc flash?

An arc flash is a sustained electrical arc between conductors, often with explosive energy. It is accompanied by a bright flash of light, flying shards, a pressure wave and toxic copper fumes...



An arc flash is caused by the sudden release of energy, producing vast levels of heat, light, sound, pressure waves and toxic substances. This can result in (serious) personal injury, as well as considerable damage to...



Simulations do not prevent electric arcs. However, simulations can minimise the damage of electric arcs, help identify risks and increase awareness...


What is an arc flash?

An arc flash is a persistent spark that can occur when switching devices or during installation errors. Often an electric arc has a negative differential resistance. This means that the arc becomes bigger and bigger, until a component elsewhere in the installation can no longer handle the current and melts. Only then should the arc be extinguished.


HyTEPS provides arc flash calculations and simulations

HyTEPS can provide you with labels for each cabinet based on various simulations that contain the most important safety data, such as the short-circuit current and which PPE should be worn for different situations. This simplifies the LMRA (Last Minute Risk Analysis), so that it can be done efficiently for each cabinet individually. If desired, this can be linked to a management system. This makes it centrally known which protective equipment is needed.


Gain insight into the risks of your installation

Everyone deserves to go home without injury at the end of the (working)day. Being aware of the risks of the work contributes to safety. The most dangerous situations in your installation can also be identified and remedied if necessary.
