ReliaGear™ LV MCC with Arc Flash Mitigation
ReliaGear LV MCC with Arc Flash Mitigation: Even More Protection
*Formerly known as Evolution E9000* with AFM
ReliaGear LV MCC with Arc Flash Mitigation units offered for customers and specific applications where additional protection of personnel is essential. The AFM units were designed around lowering the electrical shock hazards for motor control centers.
The AFM unit design includes optional IP20 devices and incidental contact safety barriers in an effort to prevent accidental contact with energized parts during maintenance.
New Level of Arc Flash Mitigation
The ReliaGear LV MCC with Arc Flash Mitigation units are designed to reduce the likelihood of exposure to electrical shock and the potential of internal arcing faults from occurring during maintenance. The retractable stab mechanism allows for closed-door racking of the unit, providing added protection to the electrical personnel from the dangers of an arc flash occurrence.
Other IP20 protection options are available in starter units including IP20 control power transformer fuses and pilot devices.
Safety. Awareness. Ease of Maintenance.
Safety interlock prevents customers from opening the unit door and racking out the stab when the stab is energized. The visual indicators on the front of the units provide personnel with a clear view of the status of the stab and vertical bus isolation shutter.
