Here at Mencom, we understand the dangers of arc flash and have developed a solution that helps prevent it. Our Panel Interface Connectors (PICs) enable connectivity to components within a control panel without the need to open the cabinet. Under OSHA, in hand with NFPA 70E standards, anyone opening a control cabinet is required to have training and wear protective gear. This can make testing and maintaining equipment expensive.

The alternative, going without personal protection equipment or using a technician who is not certified, can be deadly. As stated in the infographic, “…more than 2,000 workers were sent to burn centers this year from arc flash-related injuries.”
