Arc protection is expected to be fast and reliable. The arc protection series AQ 100 is living up to these requirements through a simple and powerful design. One part of this design is the standard configuration concept, which enables you to configure even a complicated system by flipping a few DIP switches. Sales Manager Xiaoming Ni will explain to you how this is achieved.

How to secure both the critical power supply and the safety of personnel working with switchgear that is not arc-resistant? In this webinar Managing Director Juha Arvola gives a case study of Stora Enso’s pulp and paper mill in Anjala where the goal was to prolong the lifetime of their 1976 substation by retrofitting circuit breakers and protection relays, as well as by installing a resettable arc quenching device. With the arc energy levels close to zero, they have now secured both their personnel and critical power supply for the next couple of decades.
