Is Your Arc Flash Study Valid? How IEEE 1584 Standard Updates Impact Facilities

Watch this webinar to learn how standards updates affect your arc flash studies and how breaker shop service keeps people safe from electrical dangers.

Illustration of a circuit breaker arc flash incidentUpdates to the IEEE 1584 standard for calculating arc flash energy provide more nuanced and accurate results compared to studies done previously. It’s important to know how updates affect your arc flash studies and to follow best practices for breaker shop service to keep people safe from electrical dangers.

In this webinar on circuit breaker condition and arc flash safety, Denise Green with Circuit Breaker Sales discusses changes to IEEE 1584 arc flash calculation standards and how they could impact a facility’s incident energy values. Learn more about common switchgear condition issues,how various breaker conditions affect operations, reliability, and arc flash safety, and about the importance of shop service and maintenance.


This presentation is part of a webinar series on how IEEE 1584 standard updates could impact your facility. While this presentation focuses on the importance of shop testing and maintenance, we’ve also covered how regular acceptance testing, maintenance, and field service mitigate risk for your people and property. Watch that webinar here.

Join us in December for the final installment in the series on how remote switching and remote racking help technicians avoid arc flash injuries. Justin Gaull from CBS ArcSafe will offer specific guidelines on proximity to the power source when a fault occurs and avoiding arc flash.
