SIQuench 3AM4132 Arc quenching device


SIQuench 3AM4132 arc quenching device extinguishes arcing faults within 5 milliseconds of arc initiation. The device is installed as a part of an AQ 100 arc protection system. When an AQ 100 series device detects an arc fault, it simultaneously triggers the SIQuench arc quenching system and trips the circuit breaker(s) that feed the fault. Then, the SIQuench 3AM4132 arc quenching device creates a low-impedance parallel path for the fault current to flow through. The total arcing time is less than 5 milliseconds, which mitigates the risk of personal injuries and of damages to the equipment.
