Arc extinguishing system

Through high-speed sensing of current and flash, the Arc Terminator extinguishes arcs in medium-voltage switchgear in less than 0.004 seconds before pressure can reach dangerous levels. The device can protect as many as 10 breakers, using optical and current sensors to detect arc formation. It can be installed in both this company’s and other companies’ switchgear.
