AQ-2000 ARC Quenching device
The AQ-2000 is an arc flsh quenching device which extinguishes arcing faults within 5 ms of arc initiation. AQ-2000 is installed as a part of the AQ 100 arc protection system. In case of an arc fault the AQ 100 detects the fault, triggers the AQ-2000 arc quenching device and simultaneously trips the fault feeding circuit breaker(s). The AQ-2000 creates low impedance parallel path for fault current to flw. The total time for extinguishing the arc is less than 6 ms, this mitigates risk for personal injuries and damage to equipment.
