Arc Flash: Not My Fault
ControlDesign.com has published an article about the design features OEMs are starting to include in equipment to make the equipment safer. New features include: "data taps and/or Lexan windows in panel doors so they don't have to be opened as often, installing interlocks and other hardware that make it harder for users to open panels without thinking, and coordinating fuse protection."
The article looks at the issue of who is responsible for arc flash safety, as well as looking at equipment from a number of manufacturers and what they are doing to improve arc flash safety.
