Safety products:CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutionsfor low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its single-application remote racking system (RRS-3) for General Electric (GE) Type PowerBreak II circuit breaker. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 PB II allows technicians to remotely install and remove the circuit breaker from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment thanks to CBS ArcSafe¹s magnetic latching system. The RRS-3 PBII is compatible with 800, 1600, 2500, 3000 and 4000 A Type PowerBreak II circuit breakers. Typical applications of the GE PBII circuit breakers include providing circuit protection, limiting arc-fault energy, and preserving system coordination in 280VAC, 480VAC, and 600VAC power systems. The RRS-3 PBII is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

Optional features include 25-foot extension cables, 24 V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly. All RRS-3 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.
