Vamp Ltd., a world leader in supplying arc protection systems, is launching new features in the well-known and well-established Arc Protection System VAMP. The type code of the new central unit is VAMP 220. The new unit includes more advanced logical features making it easier to protect complicated switchgear configurations.
An electric arc short-circuit is an infrequent switchgear
fault where an explosion-like heat and pressure-effect may
cause large material damage and jeopardize the job safety
of the opeation staff. The goal of the arc protection is to
detect the arc and minimize its burning time thus
protecting people and property. The burning time is
usually minimized by cutting off the current path feeding
The best way to limit damages of an arc short-circuit is to
limit the arc burning time. The burning time can be
limited by tripping off the breaker, which is feeding the
arc current. This will effectively limit both direct and
indirect damages. Especially when arc is developed
during work in the switchgear the short arc burning time
has a great value.
