CBS ArcSafe’s RRS-4 remote circuit breaker racking device boasts many of the same structural and mechanical components as their RRS-1 unit, which make it the most portable, easily adjustable, and user friendly Remote Racking System in the industry today. What makes the RRS-4 different from its RRS-1 counterpart, and any other remote racking system on the market for that matter, is that it is operated using a dual-mode, source-programmable controller.

Benefits
• Two Operating Modes
o CCM Mode: Current Control Monitoring Mode
o SEK Mode: turn counting mode
• Real time breaker location feedback
• AC/DC Power System
• Source programmable – all setup and operation can be done in the field without factory assistance
• Hand-truck design provides easy mobility
• Status indicator to let the operator know when racking is complete
• Dual redundant racking protection
• Aids compliance with NFPA 70E relative to protecting personnel by using external circuit breaker rack-out devices

Operating Modes
CCM mode is a truly universal operating mode capable of racking virtually any rotary style breaker and requires minimal setup. In SEK mode, users create a custom profile for each breaker style being operated that includes real-time breaker location feedback. Both modes are considered “Source Programmable”, meaning that all setup and operation can be done in the field without factory assistance by following the setup procedures detailed in the manual.

The RRS-4 is powered utilizing an AC/DC power system, meaning that the unit can be operated using standard 120VAC wall power or the internal batteries (which can provide approximately 30-60 racking operations depending on the application) when wall power is not available. The RRS-4 comes standard with both a corded 35-foot pendant station (extended lengths available) and a wireless radio remote pendant station capable of operating the unit from over 300 feet away.
