Etcetera Edutainment's Electrical Incident Sim Low Voltage Beta (EISLV)
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do you calculate the incident energy of an arc flash?
A: The Incident Sim uses the calculations from the IEEE 1584 Standard to determine the incident energy. As always, results should be taken as representative but not exact for a given situation. There are many factors that are not taken into account by the Incident Sim, and some factors are randomized for variability.
Q: What regulations is the incident simulator based on?
A: OSHA and NFPA 70E
Q: Why is PPE coverage limited to Category 2 in the simulations?
A: Future releases may include other category levels.
Q: When will the simulator be available for Microsoft Vista?
A: Future beta releases for EISLV will be tested for use on the Vista operating system.
