It has been sixteen years since IEEE 1584 Guide for Performing Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations was first published in year 2002. This standard was highly celebrated back then because for the first time there was an internationally recognized standard that provided a method to calculate the arcing short circuit current, incident energy and arc flash boundary. The results of these calculations are often listed on arc flash labels and have become an integral part of arc flash studies and risk assessments globally.
Now the much anticipated publication of the 2018 Edition of IEEE 1584 Guide for Performing Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations has arrived. The new edition is based on more than 2000 tests spanning a wide range of voltages, configurations and parameters, and features more detailed model and new equations.
New ARCAD's arc flash calculation software program version 6.0 conforming to the new 2018 - IEEE 1584 2nd Edition guide has also been released. Please visit AFA V6.0 product page online at https://arcadvisor.com/arc-flash-software to review the program features and capabilities, and to download free demo.
