Arc Flash Simulator ARC 256


Arc flash protection systems are designed to detect arcs which occur during short-circuits in switchgear and to minimize the potential hazard to personnel and equipment by reducing the time of occurrence and disrupting the flow of energy feeding the arc flash.

For testing such systems, OMICRON offers the new ARC 256 Arc Trip Initiator. This unique CMC accessory simulates an arc by a high intensity, surface mounted LED. The ARC 256 is positioned close to the arc flash sensor during testing. The protection device is then automatically tested using the State Sequencer module function, which controls the trigger signal of the LED and measures the time to operation.
