Arc protection

UTU Falcon is an arc protection system used in low and medium voltage switchgears. Falcon arc protection system ensures personnel’s safety and minimizes material damages in case of an arc.

Arc short-circuit is a seldom occurring failure event, which causes explosive heat and pressure effect. Protection is based on optical detecting of the light of the arc and at the same time strongly rising current. When arc short-circuit is occurring, Falcon reacts with the speed of the light and gives tripping information to the breakers, in less than one millisecond.

Falcon is developed for bigger and more complex installations giving also possibilities for more extensive protection solutions to save your money, buildings and personnel from many direct and side effects caused by arc fault inside a switchgear.
