Remote Circuit Breaker Racking - RRS-3 AKD-6 for General Electric Type AKR

Denton, Texas, September 13, 2016 – CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its single-application remote racking system (RRS) for General Electric Type AKR air circuit breakers. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 AKD-6 allows technicians to remotely install and remove the circuit breaker from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment, thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RRS-3 AKD-6 is compatible with Type AKR air circuit breakers with ratings of 800–2000 A, including AKR/AKRT/AKRU – 4A/4B/5A/5B – 30/30H/50/50H. Typical usage of the AKR breaker include commercial, industrial, and service entrance applications to protect and switch main, feeder, and incoming lines. The RRS-3 AKD-6 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

Optional features include 25-foot extension cables, 24 V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly. All RRS-3 AKD-6 units are portable, fast, and easy to set up; offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection; adjust to fit unique electrical equipment configurations; reduce the requirements for personal protection equipment (PPE), and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.
