Product Description

Arc Flash Hazard Calculator Software - Version 5.0

Creative Safety Supply offers this Arc Flash calculator and analysis software to make it easier to evaluate your facility's electrical systems. 

Then you can use an industrial label maker like the LabelTac® thermal label printer to print an appropriately-rated arc flash warning sticker or NFPA 70E standard rating label.

The label maker pictured here includes this software with the package! Call 1-866-777-1360 today for ordering information. Or check out the Arc Flash Labeling Package for yourself.

AFA V5.0 - FEATURES AND CAPABILITIES
  • Detailed arc flash analysis using the IEEE 1584 equations and the Lee method.
  • Ensure compliance with NEC, OSHA, NFPA 70E 2015, IEEE P1584 and CSA Z462 standards and regulations.
  • Instantly determine arcing current, incident energy, arc flash, limited and restricted shock approach boundaries, hazard level, typical clothing system.
  • Add fuse and circuit breaker data including time-current characteristics for the devices that are not already featured in the built-in 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, print arc flash labels in high resolution graphic format.
  • Save input configuration, protection device information.
  • Perform analysis using metric, imperial units.
  • Save reports including equipment data, calculation results, warning label.

The IEEE 1584 empirically derived model was chosen for arc flash analysis due to the model's capability to accurately account for a wide variety of setup parameters including:

  • open and box equipment configurations
  • grounding of all types and ungrounded
  • gap between conductors of 3 to 152 mm. (0.12 to 6 inches)
  • bolted fault currents in the range of 700A to 106kA
  • system voltages in the range of 208V to 15kV
  • working distances from 10 to 80 inches

For cases where voltage is over 15kV or gap is outside the range of the model, the theoretically derived Lee method can be applied and it is included in Arc Flash Analytic version 5.0.

Arc Flash Calculator Full Version:

• Calculator-style interface makes complex calculations easy to understand.
• Download Link also emailed to you after you order.
• Design safer power systems while insuring compliance with NEC 110.16, OSHA, NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584 standards.
• Avoid potential fines, lost productivity, and increased insurance.
• Create warning labels in English, French or Spanish.
• Calculate arc blast explosion pressure and arc TNT equivalent.
• Save time by generating arc flash warning labels in electronic .JPG and .BMP
• Customize labels by selecting and adding information displayed on them.
• Perform analysis using metric (mm, Joules ), imperial units (inches, calories)

The IEEE 1584 empirically derived model was chosen for the analyzing arc flash faults since the model is capable to accurately account for variety of setup parameters: open and box equipment configurations, grounding of all types and ungrounded, gap between conductors of 3 to 152 mm., bolted fault currents in the range of 700A to 106kA, system voltages in the range of 208V to 15kV, and working distances. For cases where voltage is over 15kV or gap is outside the range of the model, the theoretically derived Lee method can be applied and it is now included in the arc flash calculator.

Benefits:

 

  • Calculator-style interface makes complex calculations easy to understand.
  • Provide a safer working environment by specifying the proper level of PPE. Wearing inadequate clothing is dangerous for obvious reasons, but wearing too much clothing is dangerous due to limited mobility and visibility.
  • Design safer power systems while insuring compliance with NEC 110.16, OSHA, NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584 standards.
  • Avoid potential fines, lost productivity, and increased insurance and litigation costs.
  • Save time by generating arc flash warning labels in electronic JPG, BMP and PDF formats
  • Create warning labels in English, French or Spanish languages
  • Customize labels by selecting and adding information displayed on them.
  • Save input configurations, calculation results for future reference or printing.
  • Perform analysis using metric, imperial units, or a mix of both
  • Calculate initial arc blast explosion pressure and arc flash TNT (Tri Nitro Toluen / Trotyl ) equivalent
