Does Altivar Process have Arc flash protection?

There is no active Arc Fault Protection inside the ATV Process. This is applicable for medium voltage but not for low voltage. In the ATV Process there are specific measures for “Arc Fault Prevention”. These measures are laminated bus bars, additional insulations and reduced air flow to avoid conductive dust inside the power electronics. If there is an arc fault inside the ATV Process the fast acting semiconductor fuses will switch off. The safety of the user will be ensured when the enclosure door is closed. The drives are developed and tested according the the power drives standard IEC EN 61800-5.
