Arc Detectors

Microtech's Arc Detectors are engineered, designed, and manufactured "in house".

Microtech Arc Detectors will provide a fault or fired output signal effecting a shut-down of the system prior to damage to your very expensive power source. Microtech has pioneered a method utilizing optics allowing arc detection in a straight waveguide unit when your system might not have space for a more traditional bend.
