Electrical Safety Incident Sim Beta

Etcetera Edutainment's Electrical Incident Sim Low Voltage Beta (EISLV)

Frequently Asked Questions


  1. 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.

  2. Q: What regulations is the incident simulator based on?

    A: OSHA and NFPA 70E

  3. Q: Why is PPE coverage limited to Category 2 in the simulations?

    A: Future releases may include other category levels.

  4. 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.
