Arc flash is no longer just a safety issue. When a worker is injured or killed in your facility, a progression of medical, legal, and regulatory problems often follow.
To help reduce the incidence of arc flash hazards, the Paladin® Real-Time Arc Flash Advisor™ is the industry’s first software program that enables organizations to make up-to-date assessments of changing threats as they emerge:
Maintains an uninterrupted, 360º view of the facility and its potential arc flash hazards, continually checking all components, equipment, and systems
Provides detailed, updated advisories for site personnel regarding the appropriate safety procedures and protective gear recommended to work in a given vicinity.
Makes intelligent recommendations about where potential arc flash hazards have the potential to emerge, and gauge their severity.
Recommendations are based upon IEEE 1584 and the NFPA 70E standards entitled, ”IEEE Guide for Performing Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations” and “Standard for Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces”
Prior to entering the area and beginning work, site personnel simply query the Paladin Real-Time Arc Flash Advisor: The system responds with an up-to-date recommendation on the appropriate safety procedures and PPE necessary to work in the vicinity.
Forewarned about the nature of the threat, workers will be able to proceed with a higher degree of knowledge about specific safety risks they may encounter. For example, when performing repairs to equipment in which a worker could accidentally be exposed to an electrical hazard, Paladin Real-Time Arc Flash Advisor provides specific guidance on gloves, clothing, goggles, helmet, etc., that the worker should wear to increase his or her safety in the event of an accident.
