The safe, innovative, multiple compartment ARC ARMOR® System reduces the risk of injury resulting from arc flash and electric shock by limiting access to electrical equipment capable of producing arc flash incidents.
The control and power circuitry are isolated in separate compartments, where only control voltage is present (120V max), thus preventing unnecessary exposure of operators to arc flash.
With 5-10 arc flash incidents occurring per day, arc flash is a leading cause of death and burn accidents for maintenance staff when servicing electrical control panels in North America today.
On-site damages caused by arc flash incidents include: OSHA citations or fines, down time, loss of revenue and equipment damage. In worst case scenarios, arc flash may result in long term disability or even death thereby having a significant impact on the liability of the municipality. Arc flash events usually occur in less than 0.2 seconds.
PRIMEX® can engineer a customized control solution using the Arc Armor® system to meet your individual specifications. Common applications include: Lift Stations, Booster Systems, Storm Water, Irrigation, Industrial and others.
