OMICRON ARC 256x Arc Flash Initiator

Arc flash protection systems are designed to detect arcs which occur during short-circuits in switchgear and to minimize the potential hazard to personnel and equipment by reducing the time of occurrence and disrupting the flow of energy feeding the arc flash.

For testing such systems, the ARC 256x Arc Flash Initiator simulates an arc by a xenon tube, very similar to a camera flash. This CMC accessory is positioned close to the arc flash sensor during testing. Via its 6 m (19.7 ft) long connection cable it is connected to the external interface socket of the CMC test set, which provides both the supply voltage as well as the trigger signal. The protection system is then automatically tested using the State Sequencer module of the Test Universe software, which controls the trigger signal of the LED and measures the time to operation.

It can be attached firmly by a re-usable adhesive rubber compound (1 pack rubber compound included). Placing it loosely next to a point or linear sensor is also sufficient in many cases.

Compatible test sets: CMC 356, CMC 353, CMC 256plus and CMC 256-6.
