Paper Abstract

Electrical arc events on electrical contacts and electrical faults are of interest to researchers interested in contact design, behavior and safety. Several arc event thermograms were recorded and analyzed. This preliminary research indicates the usefulness of the infrared scanner in assessing arc shape, metal removal and heat transfer from the event.
