Accidental arcing!

Inproving protection against accidental arcing within electrical switchgear systems

A key objective for Rittal when developing Ri4Power modular system was the protection against accidental arcing. Internal arcing could lead to production downtime but more importantly is a danger to personnel.

Rittal carried out extensive testing to ensure that the Ri4Power complied with the stringent IEC 61641 standard. Segregation and insulation of busbars ensures that screws and tools can no longer become in contact with unprotected busbars, functional units and terminals, thus reducing the risk of internal arcing.
