Arc-Flash Basics

Design Master Electrical RT can also calculate arc-flash values for each piece of distribution equipment. Calculating arc-flash requires additional information, such as the electrode configuration of the device and the arcing time for the breaker. The arcing time is based upon the fault at the device and the time-current curve from the manufacturer.

Once the values are input and you have run the calculations, you can view the final values in-schedule using the Schedules->Arc-Flash command. You can also print stickers using the Schedules->Arc-Flash Stickers command.
