Point sensors

Arcteq has developed different types of arc sensors to be used with different AQ-100 series units and different switchgear types according to the specific application requirements. The available sensor types are arc light point sensors and arc light fiber optic loop sensors.

There are two types of point sensors: AQ-01 is a light point sensor, while AQ-02 is a light and pressure point sensure.

Both types come with three options for their light intensity thresholds:

  • 8 000 lx (ordering code: A)
  • 25 000 lx (ordering code: B)
  • 50 000 lx (ordering code: C)
