lv-arc-res-01-01When safety is essential in your low voltage metal-enclosed switchgear, Point Eight Power’s Low Voltage Metal Enclosed Arc Resistant Switchgear is the solution.  This switchgear has been 3rd party tested by KEMA to meet IEEE C37.20.7 for internal arcing faults up to 85kA.  It meets the IEEE C37.20.7 accessibility type 2B which states that the equipment will provide arc resistance protection on the front, rear and sides even with designated LV compartments open.  Per NFPA 70E, Electrical Safety in the Workplace, arc-resistant switchgear has a hazard risk category of zero with the breaker doors closed and latched.  No plenum is required if there is a minimum of 24 inches between the top of the switchgear and ceiling.  Any manufacturer’s breaker can be utilized and the arc resistant rating be maintained.   It can be configured and labeled to either UL 1558 or UL 891, depending on the manufacturer’s breaker used.  Point Eight Power’s Low Voltage Metal-Enclosed Switchgear can accept ‘through the door’ type LV breakers, or for additional safety and security, the breakers can be mounted behind the door.   The ‘behind the door’ design incorporates closed door racking provisions to permit racking the breaker in and out while the door is closed.  When ventilation is needed, they slam shut to seal the ventilation if an arc flash event occurs.standard equipment manufacturers.
