Table 130.5(G), under the IE > 12 cal/cm^2 section: Are "all" items listed required, thus an "Arc-rated arc flash suit hood" is required for 13cal/cm^2? (Balaclave does not work). Side: is this new in 2018? Thanks!!!
Theodore, The requirement for an arc flash hood at exposures greater than 12 cal/cm2 is not optional. This requirement was moved from the Informative Annex H.3(b) in the 2015 edition to the main body of the standard in 2018 edition. The language has been around for a while as it was also the same in the 2102 edition. Please post any additional questions as a reply.
