Palatine, IL– Schneider Electric released the Power-Zone 4® Arc Resistant Low Voltage Switchgear (PZ-4) and the Model 6 Arc Resistant Motor Control Center (MCC) .These arc resistant solutions are engineered to advance the level of worker safety within Data Centers, Water Wastewaster, Oil & Gas, Critical Power, and Mining, Minerals and Metals industries. The arc resistant solutions are engineered to enhance the reliability of a facility’s electrical distribution system, while ensuring its safe operation. The Power-Zone 4 Arc Resistant Low Voltage Switchgear is designed, tested and certified to meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 1558 and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) / American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C37.20.7 with Type 2B arc-resistant rating, providing arc flash protection at the front, back, and sides, while the instrument compartment door is open. This design protects personnel around the perimeter of the switchgear by redirecting and channeling the arc energy out the top of the switchgear. The structure is designed with ArcBlok technology, which features the proven reliability and durability of Masterpact NW power circuit breakers with a new combination of arc resistant features, and advanced arc flash containment.
