HyTEPS Arc flash training

The Arc Flash training course that teaches you all you need to know about arc flashes!

Arc flash calculations increase safety.

Everyone deserves to go home safely at the end of the day.

All work on electrical networks is accompanied by a risk of short circuits and arc flashes. Arc flashes are rare, but the consequences are disastrous. The vast explosions that accompany arc flashes put technicians, installers and bystanders at great risk. Optimal protection against arc flashes is an absolute necessity. Calculating the behavior of arc flashes before they take place contributes to safety, by providing insight into the risks and how these can be minimized. Insights into arc flash energy at a specific workplace make it possible to decide which personal protective equipment should be used.
