Due to changes in the National Electric Safety Code related to arc flash hazards, utility companies are calculating the available incident energy of Network Protectors. Those calculations are yielding results that require Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that is cumbersome to the point of making basic Network Protector inspection/maintenance difficult. Utilities are left wondering what they can do to reduce available arc flash energies to levels that allow for more practical PPE.

The Richards PROLink is designed to isolate the network protector from the secondary network – thus reducing the arc flash hazard. The PROLink features a handle-operated rugged contact assembly molded within a fully submersible fiberglass enclosure. This assembly is designed to work on all network protectors, 800–4500A, up to 600V – any make, any model. Simply rotate the handle to Open or Close the internal contact. Nothing to remove – it’s that simple.

The PROLink is a major upgrade in safety without a major investment in infrastructure.
