Qualify Providers Before An Arc Flash AnalysisAn article in Plant Engineering Live, by Joseph Weigel, of Square D Services, Schneider Electric, provides some recommendations for selecting an arc flash analysis provider.
The article begins by providing an overview description of an arc flash analysis followed by a short discussion of standards. It then talks about the factors that should be considered when selecting a provider of your arc flash analysis.
The article concludes by saying:
"Purchasing an arc flash analysis for an industrial facility is very important for electrical safety standard compliance and also is required in order to provide the safest possible workplace for employees. However, like any product or service, when purchasing an arc flash analysis, one tends to get what one pays for, which is why qualifying providers should not be taken lightly. But more importantly, a facility owner or manager should also be careful not to be wooed by low bids.
Thus, a careful and thoughtful approach to an arc flash analysis purchase and qualifying providers, can help ensure the best possible result for a company’s investment."
