Covered conductors have the potential to reduce ignition risk associated with objects contacting bare conductors. This research paper presents simulation and empirical test results modeling conductor contact with objects. The overall objective is to test and illustrate that covered conductors substantially reduce current through the objects. This reduction significantly decreases the probability of ignition.
