Littelfuse to Host Webinar: From Theory to Practice: Applying Arc Mitigation Strategies and Installation Guidelines to Your Specific Application
Participants will receive workbook to help them calculate Incident Energy reduction before committing to installing an arc flash relay
CHICAGO, October 18, 2012
- Littelfuse, Inc.
, the global leader in circuit protection, invites plant engineers, consulting specifying engineers and maintenance professionals to join Plant Services Chief Editor Mike Bacidore and Littelfuse P.E. Tony Locker as they discuss the practical application of mitigating arc flash. The webinar, “From Theory to Practice: Applying Arc Mitigation Strategies and Installation Guidelines to Your Specific Application,” will take place on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 2 pm EST.
In this webinar, the attendees will learn:
- Arc flash mitigation strategies and regulations to follow, including OSHA and ANSI-10 hierarchy of controls
- Arc Mitigation techniques and how to apply them in practice
- Where and how to install arc flash relays and understand different types of sensors
- How to model Arc Flash Relays in engineering software
- Arc flash relay configuration and maintenance tips
- How to calculate a realistic scenario for the impact of an arc flash relay on incident energy before installation
- A real life arc flash incident case study and statistics
The webinar includes a case study of an arc flash relay installation that lowered Hazard Risk Categories (HRC) and prevented catastrophic damage to the facility. After the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions in a live Q&A session.
The webinar is free of charge, and participants will be emailed a complimentary copy of the Littelfuse Incident Energy Reduction Workbook. This workbook provides a step-by-step calculation of the incident energy reduction of an arc-flash relay in a user’s system before committing to installation.
“Many plant and safety engineers have accepted the concept of using relays to reduce arc flash hazards – they know what they need to do. Now they are looking for detailed implementation information – they want to know how to do it,” said Tony Locker. “Through our extensive experience, Littelfuse has compiled step-by-step guides and easy to follow documents to help users take arc flash mitigation theory to practice. ”
