Arc Flash Studies consist of gathering electrical system site data and compiling the results, in order to determine the level of incident energy within certain boundaries at a piece of equipment, as well as the personal protective equipment (PPE) required to be worn by those working on or maintaining such equipment. These values are reflected in the arc flash labels provided at each piece of system equipment studied. The arc flash hazard analysis incorporates and starts with the incoming short circuit data procured from the local utility company.

Infra-Red Building and Power Systems has been engineering Arc Flash Studies for many years, providing clients with guidelines for safety in challenging conditions.
