DC Arc Flash Analytic 3.0
DC-Arc-Flash-Analytic version 3.0 (DCAFA V3.0) software for Windows operated PCs has been developed as an easy to use and comprehensive tool for calculating arc incident energy and arc flash boundary.
This software simplifies determining incident energy at working distance, arc flash, limited and restricted approach boundaries in DC power systems when work is to be performed on or near the energized equipment. The program performs the analysis by taking into account power system voltage, available short circuit current, circuit time constant, equipment configuration, working distance and protective device time-current characteristics. DCAFA V3.0 will also assist you in selection of proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and creation of arc flash & shock hazard warning labels. The program is applicable for systems with voltages from 50 to 30,000V DC, short circuit fault currents from 100A to 20kA, circuit time constants from 0 to 50msec, conductor gaps from 1 mm. up to the lesser of 300 mm. and the maximum value where the arc can likely be sustained under the specified system voltage, available short circuit current and circuit time constant.
