Arc Fault Containment

To provide maximum flexibility of selection to match system fault level and protection characteristics, S&I has carried out arc fault containment tests to two levels:

  • Level 1 - 25kA 1.0 second / 50kA 0.1 second
  • Level 2 - 50kA 1.0 second

Arc fault containment tests have been carried out at both levels in the main areas within the cubicle assembly:

  • Busbar Chamber
  • Circuit Breaker  / Contactor Chamber
  • Cable Termination Chamber

Tests have been carried out to prove Type 298's suitability for Accessibility Type A, as defined by Annex AA of IEC 60298 and all six specified test criteria have been met.

IEC 60298 Annex AA - Arc Fault Containment Test Criteria:

  • Doors, covers do not open
  • Parts which may cause hazard do not fly off
  • Arcing does not cause holes to develop
  • Vertical indicators do not ignite
  • Horizontal indicators do not ignite
  • Earthing connections remain effective
