Utility tools: CBS ArcSafe’s RRS-3 PowlVac (CDR) remote racking system allows technicians to install and remove General Electric PowlVac vacuum circuit breakers with closing door racking from up to 300 feet away, outside the arc-flash boundary. Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment.

Each CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 Single-Use Remote Racking System is a portable, standalone device designed to remotely rack a single type/style circuit breaker.

These inexpensive, single-application remote breaker racking systems allow the operator to use a hand-control unit to install and remove a breaker while standing up to 300 feet away.

RRS-3 units are most commonly assisted by strong magnets, meaning that no modifications are required to your switchgear. This also allows operators to easily move the RRS-3 from one breaker to another.

Each RRS-3 is custom built to interface with your specfic circuit breaker and is provided with a RSO-IV remote switch operator which is required for its operation. A radio remote control is also available.
