Strong demand for VAMP arc protection relays throughout Australasia
The demand for VAMP arc protection in the Australasian market continues to be strong.
The fast tripping time of 7 ms (excluding breaker operating time) of the VAMP 221 arc protection system is often required
to reduce arc hazards on MV and LV switchgear.
However, VAMP recently introduced arc eliminators for both MV and LV applications. These devices are able to remove arc faults within 5 ms total operating time.
This extremely fast arc quenching time is achieved as there is no delay introduced such as circuit breaker operating times.
The units are re-useable so that operating costs are also very low.
