GE has announced the release of its Multilin A60 arc flash system, a device that uses GE's patented light and pressure wave detection technology to detect and initiate a trip signal in the event of an arc flash condition. By initiating the trip signal, the Multilin A60 helps minimize equipment damage and reduce the costs associated with unplanned downtime and lost production, GE says.

Designed for medium-voltage switchgear and motor control center applications, the Multilin A60 is a stand-alone device that can be used in new or existing installations for continuous monitoring and fast detection of an arc flash event. According to the company, the system's design includes five arc flash sensors for optimal coverage, and its scalability allows multiple Multilin A60 devices to be connected, delivering increased fault isolation for reduced equipment damage. The Multilin A60 also offers sensor auto-calibration and comes equipped with a self-test feature that monitors the health of the sensors, the full length of the fiber cables and the unit itself, GE adds.
