Denton, TX, May 22, 2019 – CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its single-application remote racking solution (RRS) for ABB/BBC/ITE Type LK air circuit breakers. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 LK 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.
This latest generation has been outfitted with the newly designed constant force spring assembly. The constant force spring assembly provides a “pull” force toward the face of the breaker to stay engaged with the racking mechanism during the racking process. CBS ArcSafe has also redesigned the interlock defeat tooling with fewer parts to help users make the racking process more efficient. In addition, CBS ArcSafe designed a tool that will maintain the trip button position during the racking operation and allow a charged breaker to be racked out.
Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment, thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RRS-3 LK is compatible with ABB/BBC/ITE Type LK air circuit breakers, including LK/LKD/LKE-8/16/20/25/32/40/42. Typical applications include positive protection and control of power circuits on low-voltage power distribution systems up to 630 V AC and 60 Hz.
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.
