Toronto, Canada – Kinectrics is pleased to announce that ARCPRO™ 3.0, the latest version of Kinectrics’ unique arc flash hazard analysis software, is now available.

ARCPRO™ 3.0 is an easy-to-use software package for the calculation of radiated and convected thermal energy from electric arcs. This highly effective tool offers proven value in helping utilities and other industries select protective clothing and meet workplace regulations for safety apparel and comply with OSHA regulations.

A state-of-the-art program, ARCPRO™ includes a physics-based model of electric arcs. The software models high power arcing by taking into account such complex variables as gas properties, arc electrode materials, thermal radiation and convective energy dissipation. ARCPRO™ considers the arc current, arc duration, arc gap, worker’s distance from the arc, and a number of other factors required in the accurate assessment of arc exposure. ARCPRO™ computations have been verified by live arc testing in Kinectrics’ High Current Laboratory. Kinectrics’ ARCPRO™ has become the industry’s most widely respected application for computing arc hazards and selecting protective clothing for single arc situations, particularly for medium voltage and high voltage Transmission and Distribution applications that other methods do not address. Originally developed in 1996, ARCPRO™ has undergone several upgrades to address user feature requests and currently enjoys a worldwide user base. Learn more on the ArcPro solutions page.
