Denton, TX, March 17, 2020 – CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its redesigned single-application remote racking solution (RRS) for HK-style circuit breakers from ABB, BBC, and ITE. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 HK allows technicians to remotely install and remove circuit breakers from a safe distance of up to 300 feet away while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.
The latest generation RRS-3 HK has been transformed into a mobile, dolly-style racking unit that can be easily wheeled up to the breaker. Additionally, it features a convenient built-in tool holder. With the RRS-3 HK, the user is stationed outside the arc-flash boundary. A radio remote that can handle up to a 300-foot line-of-sight operation comes standard in select RRS-3 packages.
Installation and operation do not require any modifications to existing electrical equipment, thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RRS-3 HK is compatible with HK-style circuit breakers (single height only, not stacked) manufactured by ABB, BBC, or ITE, with current ratings from 1200 to 3000 A. This system is not compatible with any HK-1000 models. HK-style circuit breakers are typically found in generation, chiller/HVAC, petrochemical, water/waste treatment, and pulp/paper applications.
Optional features include 25-foot pendant extensions, a 24 V DC LED light, a wireless video camera system with an LCD monitor, and a 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.
