Arc flash system

GE's Multilin A60 Arc Flash System uses light and pressure wave detection technology to detect and initiate a trip signal in the event of an arc flash condition.


The Multilin A60 Arc Flash System uses a trip signal to minimize damage to medium-voltage switchgear and motor control center applications. Courtesy: GEGE's Multilin A60 Arc Flash System uses light and pressure wave detection technology to quickly and reliably detect and initiate a trip signal in the event of an arc flash condition. By initiating the trip signal, the Multilin A60 helps minimize equipment damage and reduce the costs associated with unplanned downtime and lost production. Designed for medium-voltage switchgear and motor control center applications, the Multilin A60 is a protection relay independent, stand-alone device that can be used in new or existing installations for continuous monitoring and fast detection of an arc flash event. Its design includes five arc flash sensors for optimal coverage, and its scalability allows multiple Multilin A60 devices to be connected, delivering increased fault isolation for reduced equipment damage. The Multilin uses sensor auto-calibration, eliminating the need for CT connections or setup software, reducing total operation and maintenance costs. The Multilin A60 comes equipped with a self-test feature that monitors the health of the sensors, the full length of the fiber cables, and the unit itself, eliminating the need for periodic testing.
