Utility safety: CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator for Siemens Vacu-Break fusible unit switches. The new CBS ArcSafe® RSA-154F remote switch actuator allows technicians to remotely close or open the switches from a safe distance while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

Installation and operation does not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment. The RSA-154F is compatible with all type VF357, VB357, VF358, and VB358 Siemens Vacu-Break panel switches with a 25 in. height and ratings from 800-1200A. The RSA-154F is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

All CBS ArcSafe products are manufactured in the U.S. at our manufacturing facility in Denton, Texas.
