Arc Flash Causes and Consequences and the 2015 NFPA 70E With Westex

  • 09/24/2014
On Wednesday, Sept. 24, at 2:00 p.m. EDT, ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR magazine along with NECA Premier Partner Westex by Milliken, will host a webinar on the causes and consequences of arc flashes and the 2015 changes to NFPA 70E.

The webinar will focus on historical data, real accidents, body burn, and the differences between non-FR and FR clothing. Westex by Milliken will feature a new HD super slow motion video of arc flashes on real 480V equipment with clothed mannequins in typical working position. The videos, which has led to a significant leap in understanding the arc flash hazard, will show arcs from 0.6 up to 40+ cals. Following that, there will be a discussion about hazard analysis and FR clothing performance testing, focusing on the quantification of incident energy and ATPV (or arc rating). And finally, Westex by Milliken will review changes to NFPA 70E 2015.

Registration is required. This event will be recorded for later viewing.
