What is Arc Flash:

How can such a problem develop? A transient of sufficient magnitude can cause an arc to form between conductors within an instrument or across test leads. Once an arc occurs, the total available fault current can feed the arc and cause an explosion.

 

The result is an arc flash, which can cause a plasma fireball fueled by the energy in the electrical system. Temperatures can reach about 3,000° C or 5,000° F, instantly burning or melting any non-retardant clothing and causing beyond third-degree  burns. The arc can also cause a sonic and pressure wave capable of spraying a bystander with molten metal inducing further, deeper burns.

Transients are not the only source of arc-flash hazard. A very common misuse of hand-held multimeters can trigger a similar chain of events. If the multimeter user leaves the test leads in the amps input terminals and connects the meter leads across a voltage source, that user has just created a short through the meter. While the voltage terminals have a high impedance, the amps terminals have a very low impedance. This is why a meter's amps circuit must be protected with fuses.

 

Another common and dangerous misuse of test equipment is measuring ohms or continuity on a live circuit. These measurements should be made only on circuits that are not energized.  Working on live voltage must be only the last resort.



Classification of Cat as Per NFPA-70 E. Regulations:

 

CAT 0 (NO CAT RATING AS4836)

No cal/cm^2 rating, and is simply flame retardant (FR). It is possible for a garment to be flame

retardant, and not have an Arc Flash cal rating. It is not possible to have a cal rating without being

flame retardant. This is because an Arc Flash cal rating is achieved by exposure to an Arc Flash

test, while an FR garment or fabric is simply exposed to a static flame test. As such, we know

all Arc Flash cal rated garments will pass a FR test as they must be FR to pass the Arc Flash test.

A fabric that passes only a FR static flame test, is by no means guaranteed to pass an Arc Flash CAL

rating test.

 

CAT 1 (4-7CAL/CMSQ NFPA 70E)

The popularity of Cat 1 clothing for all day work wear is increasing exponentially.

It was seen as a ‘must have’ to have over 8cal/cm^2 for work wear.

This is changing, with more and more companies accepting lower values

(5-7cal/cm2) for their work wear, in order to achieve wearability and breathability

benefits only offered by lighter but lower rated fabrics.

CAT 1 (4-7CAL/CMSQ NFPA 70E)

The popularity of Cat 1 clothing for all day work wear is increasing exponentially.

It was seen as a ‘must have’ to have over 8cal/cm^2 for work wear.

This is changing, with more and more companies accepting lower values

(5-7cal/cm2) for their work wear, in order to achieve wearability and breathability

benefits only offered by lighter but lower rated fabrics.

CAT 2 (8-25CAL/CMSQ NFPA 70E)

This category achieves the ‘magic number 8’ of 8cal/cm^2, which many companies have

deemed to be the minimum for all day work wear. The thinnest and lightest Cat 2 fabrics

can be as light as 235gsm (grams per square meter) single layer. This is suitable for all but the most humid climates.

 

CAT 3 (26-39CAL/CMSQ NFPA 70E)

This is the least used or popular category in NFPA 70E, as many companies will jump

straight from Cat 2 work wear, to Cat 4 high risk protection to achieve 40cal/cm2, leaving

out Cat 3. Despite this, Cat 3 is still an excellent option as it can provide very close to

40cal/cm2 with less layers, and is still a very protective garment. For example, a two layer switching coat can provide in the high-30s of cal/cm2 rating.

 

CAT 4 (40 CAL/CMSQ 2NFPA 70E)

The most popular choice for high risk tasks, Cat 4 garments are rated upwards of 40cal/cm2 and provide the highest protection offered under the standard. When risk levels are high, and peace of mind

is an absolute must, Cat 4 is the most popular choice. Although thicker fabrics and

multi layer constructions are required to achieve this category, developments in fabric means

garments are no longer as hot, bulky and uncomfortable as they once were.
