CBS ArcSafe, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low-voltage and medium-voltage switchgear, offers a remote switch actuator (RSA) for General Electric EntelliGuard G circuit breakers. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-162 allows technicians to remotely charge, close or trip the circuit breaker from a safe distance of up to 300 ft. while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.
Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment because of CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RSA-162 is compatible with GG/GJ/GH/GK-04/07/08/10/13/16/20/25/32/40/50/64 circuit breakers with ratings from 400-6,000 A. Typical applications of these circuit breakers include providing advanced circuit protection, limiting arc-fault energy, and preserving system coordination for power distribution systems. The RSA-162 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.
Optional features include radio remote with range up to 300 ft., 24 VDC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly. All RSA units are portable, fast and easy to set up, offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection, are adjustable to fit unique electrical equipment configurations, reduce the requirements for personal protection equipment (PPE), and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.
