AFA version 5.0 awarded with a Certificate of Compliance
ARCAD INC. is very pleased to announce that our AFA v5.0 software for arc flash analysis and labeling has been audited by a registered professional engineer in Ontario and confirmed to meet NEC, CEC code and IEEE P 1584, NFPA 70E, CSA Z462 standard requirements.
How to perform arc flash analysis in DC power systems
Direct current (DC) arcing fault incident energy calculations are presented to assess the level of risk involved when working around high current DC apparatus. The proposed procedure allows evaluation of incident energy and arc flash boundaries, while taking into account as many circuit parameters as possible. These parameters include fixed or variable gap length, system voltage, available fault current, equipment configuration, circuit time constant and evaluated threshold energy for a second degree burn.
ARCAD, INC. announces beta release of DCAFA version 2.0 of DC ARC FLASH ANALYTIC software program for direct current (DC) arc flash, shock hazard analysis and labeling. We welcome all feedback and appreciate you sharing with us your experience working with the new program solution before the official DCAFA V2.0 release. We will attend to and implement the best of your suggestions. Also, we will offer a special discount to everyone who contributes their time and effort reviewing DCAFA V2.0 functions and capabilities, who is willing to share their observations with us and to those who help us in making DC-Arc-Flash-Analytic v2.0 a success story.
