NEMA: Association Publishes Arc Flash White Paper
Rosslyn, Va. — Nov. 9, 2015 — The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published NEMA ABP 10-2015 Arc Flash Analysis—Utility System Parameters Critical for Accurate PPE.
This white paper is useful for industries using circuit protection in alternative energy, commercial, industrial, mining, and military applications, since it may be necessary to perform an arc-flash study to support an electrical safety program in the workplace.
Originally developed in 2002 by the NEMA Molded Case Circuit Breakers Committee, revisions were made to bring this paper up to date with the latest testing references and requirements, and to align with current terminology and industry practices.
NEMA ABP 10-2015 may be downloaded at no cost on the NEMA website. Find it here.
