GE’s Industrial Solutions business has announced the availability of its ArcWatch circuit breaker communication technology, providing always-on, full-time protection and reliability for people, property and equipment. The technology enables an electrical system design that helps to maximize selectivity, or uptime, while simultaneously providing continuous arc-flash mitigation protection. Systems embedded with this technology reduce the impact of an arc-flash event to <8 cal/cm2, resulting in much lower requirements for using personal protective equipment and making it easier for electrical contractors to work with their hands, allowing for better functionality and safety. ArcWatch-enabled circuit breaker families include EntelliGuard, Record Plus and Spectra RMS series. The recently launched PremEon S trip unit used in conjunction with the Record Plus platform is an advanced electronic trip unit that provides higher levels of accuracy for selective ratings without compromising safety, especially during maintenance operations. It also eliminates rating plugs for jobsite simplicity and adjustability.
