Brooks Utility Products, a supplier of metering accessories, security products and meter sockets/transockets to the electric utility industry, is focusing on providing answers to the growing threat of 480-volt arc flash.

Because worker safety, comfort and productivity continue to be top concerns for utility managers, engineers and field service personnel, Brooks has focused much of its new product development efforts to address those needs. FlashSentry enclosure provides an answer to the ever-present industry threat of worker injury because of 480-volt arc flash. The patent pending Safe-T-Guard barrier technology reduces the threat of arc flash and provides maximum safety for workers.

The enclosure is safer because it isolates the 480 service voltage in a separate, sealable compartment from the 120-volt metering compartment. The voltage is reduced by either the Two-Sockets - Two Meters VT Pack with Molex connections or with conventional voltage transformers. Provisions for either are supplied as standard. This provides utility workers with much lower arc fault risk, reducing the requirements for additional flame retardant clothing. The enclosure also allows utilities the ability to adhere to stringent OSHA standards driven by the latest NFPA 70E standards for PPE.
