Schneider Electric’s ArcBlok technology in the Square D Brand Model 6 motor control center (MCC) provides equipment protection and safety-related work practices. ArcBlock is designed to act as a barrier to arc flash events and also helps to prevent arc flash causes from originating, extinguishing and containing the arc energy if they would occur. It also features thermal sensors allowing temperature monitoring in the mobile device while standing outside the arc flash boundary. Take temperature readings faster and without the discomfort of PPE normally required for infrared thermography. Using Zigbee communication protocols, users can monitor main breaker operating temperatures on their wireless device. It can be specified for new installations or retrofit as a new main section as a part of a modernization project.
