Flash Newsletter is a quick update on electric arc flash and ARCAD
solutions addressing the matter. This newsletter is free and will bring
you up to date on the issues that surround arc flash and short circuit
analysis. Visit us at www.arcadvisor.com
for complete product offerings including free online arc flash, short
circuit calculators, stand-alone PC and mobile software solutions for
short-circuit, arc flash hazard analysis and labeling.
V1.0 mobile app performs available short circuit fault current
calculations in three-phase electric power systems you are working
with. The app takes into consideration all of the key electrical
parameters of power distribution system including power supply,
cables, transformers and motors. The app automatically converts the
entire system into a unique impedance unit from which the short
circuit current and the X/R ratio of the circuit between the source
and the fault is calculated at each location.
source can be set as a transformer supply or a busbar with a
specified short circuit level. If a transformer source is used, the
short circuit level on the primary side can be set to infinity by
setting the data field blank.
one by one to build up a single line diagram. The components can be
cables, transformers and a motor. After a component has been added,
its data can be edited by clicking on the component when displayed on
Click on 'Calculate' button to
estimate the short circuit currents at each busbar. The calculations
factor in short circuit current contributions from the source and
maximum of one motor only. Click on 'Mail' button to send all the
equipment data and calculation results by email.

characteristics for the devices that have not already been listed in
built-in circuit protection device library
Perform arc flash boundary
calculations based on 1.2 cal/cm^2 (5 Joules/cm^2) onset energy to
second degree burn for bare skin exposure per IEEE 1584 Guide and other
incident energy levels as well, such as the rating of proposed
personal protective equipment, or evaluated onset to second degree burn energy.
Create warning labels in English and a variety of international languages.
Preview, save arc flash labels in high resolution graphic format.
Save input configuration, protection device information, equipment image.
Perform analysis using metric, imperial units.
Send extended report including equipment data, calculation results, warning label.

information about Arc Flash Analytic arc flash analysis and labeling
software for iOS and Android operating systems is available on this
accessible, easy to use tool and a comprehensive companion to Arcad's
PC software. The features are simple to navigate without compromising
on the range of options. I particularly appreciate the depth of
customization, down to the language selection. I am yet to come across
any glitches or bugs - considerable accomplishment for a new app.
Overall, very satisfied and would highly recommend the software and app
