Introducing EVs and the DC Hazard

As the electric vehicle (EV) market continues to grow, so does the importance of understanding the potential hazards associated with direct current (DC) electrical systems. That's why Tyndale is proud to launch our new educational series, EVs and the DC Hazard. Whether you are a battery manufacturer, work in battery replacement and storage, or install and maintain charging stations, this series is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the complexities of electrical safety in the age of electric vehicles.

What to Expect

First up, our host Scott Margolin, Vice President of Technical at Tyndale, will break down the key differences between alternating current (AC) arcs and DC arcs. But that’s just the beginning. You’ll get to witness the first-ever live video demonstration of DC arcs and compare them to their AC counterparts.

Next, we’ll dive deeper into the world of DC arc flashes and explore how they can impact workers exposed to them. Using real-world video footage of DC arc flashes – the first of its kind, you’ll see firsthand the devastating power of these electrical hazards and how they can cause serious harm, or worse, to workers who are not properly protected.

Join Scott Margolin as we compare and contrast AC and DC arcs, witness the devastating impact of wearing insufficient garments in face of a DC arc flash hazard, and examine critical role that proper arc-rated (AR) clothing plays in ensuring electrical safety in the rapidly-evolving world of electric vehicles.


Each of these videos make excellent training aids to emphasize the importance of wearing AR clothing – and wearing it properly.
