Keep the tech side of your Benda system running smoothly by following our 5 ½ tips.
1) Follow Benda’s Arc Flash Safety Program.
Keep panel doors closed while wires are live. If the 480-volt electric current leaves its path, it could travel through the air, causing an unnecessary explosion. Operators should wear arc flash personal protection equipment like insulated gloves, and arc flash hats and coveralls which deflect arc flash activity. Use the Arc Flash Indicators located on the outside of a cabinet and always measure voltage to see if line power is present according to NFPA 70-E regulations.
