Arc Flash Studies

Arc Flash Analysis and Hazard Assessment

Service Overview

We provide a comprehensive arc flash study including full on-site evaluation, modeling, analysis drawing, fault current and coordination studies.

Our qualified NFPA 70E, IEEE-registered experts can perform a detailed inspection of your plant or facility, regardless of size or location throughout North America. We offer a wide variety of arc flash and electrical hazard studies, including:

  • Arc flash analysis
  • Electrical power studies
  • Protective device environments
  • Motor start analysis
  • Short circuit analysis
  • Power flow studies

Our engineers are all members of IEEE, the organization setting the standards for arc flash studies. We use SKM Power Tools, ArcPro, and other software packages to give the best, most accurate results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does an Arc Flash Study Cost?
The cost of an Arc Flash Study depends on a variety of factors, including type of facility (i.e., manufacturing, hospital, warehouse, etc.), size of the facility, amount of electrical equipment, electrical services into the facility, availability of data, location, age of the equipment, and more.

Companies can help reduce the cost of an arc flash study. Those facilities that have the following in place will have the most efficient, cost-effective study:

  • A good one-line diagram
  • Their own electricians available to assist in gathering data
  • Updated equipment
  • Maintenance records for the equipment

How long will it take to have an arc flash study done at my facility?
This varies according to several factors such as: the size of your facility, the amount of equipment that needs labeling and how quickly you are able to provide us with information about your work location.

How much does an arc flash study typically cost?
The amount an arc flash study can cost is going to vary per facility. Square footage and equipment that needs labeling are major factors that go into giving an accurate price.

How often should I get an arc flash study done?
Any time you get a new piece of equipment or after 5 years.

What's the difference between an arc flash study and an arc flash hazard analysis?
An arc flash hazard analysis is just another name for an arc flash study. They are interchangeable with one another.

What software is used to calculate the hazard level of equipment?
e-Hazard primarily uses SKM Power Tools for our arc flash calculations. Our experts are experienced in using this software as a tool to perform arc flash hazard calculations that provide you with the most accurate information.

What is an Arc Flash Study?

e-Hazard arc flash studies (or arc flash or hazard analysis) are conducted at your facility by one of our trained experts, qualified to evaluate your electrical system. Studies can be customized to include fault current and coordination analysis, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Level recommendations, Arc Flash Equipment Labeling and more according to your specific situation. Notes and recommendations are given for areas presenting risk to personnel or equipment.
