Brochure: Compliance Solutions for NFPA 70EThis brochure provides an overview of the steps facilities can take to meet the requirements of NFPA 70E. It also includes information for strategies to mitigate the potential for an arc flash event. Read more: Compliance Solutions for NFPA 70E
Brochure: Switchgear "Virtual Main" Arc Flash Mitigation SystemLow-voltage switchgear and switchboards can be subjected to dangerous levels of arc flash incident energy when fed directly from a power transformer. The addition of a virtual main system reduces the arc flash energy on the entire low-voltage switchgear, including the main incoming section. Other solutions do not protect the entire lineup.

Handout: Remote Racking SystemRemote racking systems (RRS) allow circuit breaker racking operations to be performed via a control panel located away from the cell, which removes the operator from manual contact with the circuit breaker. Read more: Remote Racking System
White Paper: Arc Flash Labels - A Sticky Situation
This white paper focuses on the new labeling requirements resulting from recent revisions to the NFPA 70E and NEC standards. It will also discuss some ‘sticky’ situations relative to labeling, as well as best practices and considerations for arc flash labels. Learn more: Arc Flash Labels - A Sticky Situation
White Paper: Roadmap to Compliance with NFPA 70E
There are five important steps that companies should take to reduce the occurrence of electrical accidents. These steps are required as part of The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standard 70E®, which provides a detailed reference for facilities to meet the requirements of electrical workplace safety. A sixth step assists the facility owners with fine-tuning the electrical system for safety and operability. Learn more: Roadmap to Compliance with NFPA 70E
White Paper: Mitigating Arc Flash Hazards
This paper will address Engineering Controls to reduce the degree of hazard and/or risk associated with an arc flash event. The engineering controls covered will either: 1) Reduce arc flash energy to a level where permitted tasks can be performed, or 2) Locate the worker so that he/she is not subject to harm.
