Point Eight Power Signs Agreement With PACS
Point Eight Power, a designer and manufacturer of electrical control and distribution systems, has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with PACS Industires Inc. for arc resistant switchgear for the oil and gas, marine and pipeline industries. Point Eight Power said it has licensed the technology from PACS, a developer of arc resistant switchgear designs for heavy industry and railroad transportation.
The design for sequestering and venting arc flash events meets the IEEE C37.20.7 Type 2C test between adjacent vertical cubicles through a patented vertical isolation plenum, said the company. Point Eight Power's initial arc resistant ratings will include 15 kV up to 63 kA for 0.5 seconds for one-high and two-high construction; 27 kV up to 4 0kA for 0.5 seconds and 38 kV up to 40 kA for 0.5 seconds.
