Rotary Remote Racking

Universal remote circuit breaker racking system capable of removing or inserting low- and medium-voltage draw out circuit breakers which use a jack screw rotary racking mechanism while the operator remains outside the arc-flash boundary.

Extractor Remote Racking

Universal remote circuit breaker racking system capable of removing or inserting low- and medium-voltage non-rotary circuit breakers while the operator remains outside the arc-flash boundary.

Handheld Remote Racking

A handheld powered racking device capable of racking most rotary style low- and medium-voltage switchgear utilizing a high torque motor, preventing operator fatigue and reducing time spent within the arc flash boundary.

Apparatus-Specific Portable Remote Racking

Apparatus-specific remote circuit breaker racking system which allows the operator to install and remove a circuit breaker while standing 25 to 75 feet away with a hand control unit, with radio remote option.

Remote Switch Actuators

Allows service personnel to move, push, pull, charge, close, and/or trip circuit breakers and other electrical equipment from a safe distance in conjunction with a CBS ArcSafe RSO.

With the increase in awareness of the severity and frequency of electrical arc-flash hazards, OSHA realized the need to provide more direction and regulation to its general language. The result was a final rule to 29 CFR 1910.269, the Electrical Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution Standard which became effective on July 10, 2014. This was the first time OSHA mandated specific arc-flash related requirements which go beyond general hazard awareness and also set mandatory compliance deadlines. At CBS ArcSafe®, safety of our customers’ electrical workers is our top priority.

CBS ArcSafe® stays informed about current and new requirements from both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Read more.
