CBS ArcSafe, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator (RSA) for the Westinghouse Type ADM disconnect switch. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-186 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the Westinghouse load-break switch from a safe distance of up to 300 ft., well 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-186 is compatible with Type ADM disconnect switches. Typical applications include use as a disconnect switch in AC-power systems up to 5,500V, with or without fuses. When compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-186 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe.
Optional features include radio remote with a range of 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; and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.
