Energy management: Single-application remote racking system
Power management: CBS ArcSafe introduces RRS-3 PowlVac (CDR) for General Electric PowlVac vacuum circuit breakers.
Energy management: CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its single-application remote racking system (RRS) for General Electric PowlVac vacuum circuit breakers with closing door racking (CDR). The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 PowlVac (CDR) 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.
The RRS-3 PowlVac (CDR) is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives. Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment, thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RRS-3 PowlVac (CDR) is compatible with all standard GE PowlVac circuit breakers equipped with CDR featuring ratings of 5 kV and 15 kV.
Typical applications for the PowlVac breaker include protecting and switching the main line, feeders, and incoming lines with continuous ratings of 1200–4000 A. 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 with fast and easy setup. They offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection, adjust to fit unique electrical equipment configurations, reduce requirements for personal protection equipment, and meet NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance standards.
All CBS ArcSafe products are manufactured in the United States at our facility in Denton, TX.
