Arc-flash calculations based upon IEEE 1584 are included in the software. The incident energy at the working distance is calculated to determine the required PPE for the panel. The flash-protection-boundary distance is calculated to determine how close to the panel unprotected workers are allowed.
A schedule, displaying the calculated values, can be inserted on the drawing for jurisdictions that require documentation of the arc-flash calculations for permits.
Warning labels can be printed and attached to panels to warn workers of the calculated arc-flash danger and the PPE required to stay safe.
