Arc Flash & Electrical Safety

We’ve been driving cars for over 100 years, but wearing seatbelts only for the last 30.

Similarly, electrical systems have been part of industry for years, but only recently have we begun to deal with the specific hazard of arc flash. Magna IV Engineering has a thorough understanding of the technical and practical challenges involved with electrical safety and arc flash. We have the experience and expertise to provide end-to-end solutions that minimize or eliminate the risk to personnel and equipment imposed by this powerful phenomena.
