Choosing the right battery size—and the charger to complement it—can certainly be confusing. The reason there's not a straightforward answer is due to the fact that most companies don't have a straightforward material handling operation.

Luckily the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) establish standards to ensure employee safety, as well as safety for companies like us who are charged with installing and maintaining battery systems. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let's discuss exactly what arc flash is.
