Circuit breakers: Remote switch actuators for low-voltage power circuit breakers
Utility safety: CBS ArcSafe introduces remote switch actuators for ABB/Sace Megamax F-Series circuit breakers.
Safety products: CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator for ABB/Sace Megamax F-Series low-voltage power circuit breakers. Designed for all sizes of ABB/Sace F-series (F1 to F6) circuit breakers with current ratings from 1200-6000A, the CBS ArcSafe® RSA-69A allows technicians to safely close and/or trip breakers outside of the arc-flash hazard boundary without any modification to the breaker.
When accompanied by an applicable CBS ArcSafe® Remote Switch Operator (RSO) control unit, the RSA-69A provides open and close operation from up to 300 feet away, reducing the need for arc-flash hazard suits and eliminating all hazardous manual contact with gear during operation. Utilizing strong magnets, the actuator requires no modifications for switchgear mounting, and operators can easily move the actuator from one breaker to another. The actuator is lightweight, portable, and simple to install and set up, providing technicians with a quick solution for hard-to-access breaker locations.
Optional features for the RSA-69A include a radio remote with a range of up to 300 feet, a wired or wireless video camera system with LCD monitor for remote viewing, and a custom-fit rugged storage case. When combined, these features make the RSA-69A easy to install and remove, allowing technicians to quickly and safely set up and operate different sets of the same electrical equipment. All CBS ArcSafe® products are manufactured in the U.S. at our manufacturing facility in Denton, Texas.
