RSA-154CDenton, Texas, August 22, 2017 CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator (RSA) for the Siemens Vacu-Break® V2F and V7F series of fusible panel units. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-154C allows technicians to remotely close or trip a Siemens panelboard switch (PBS) from a safe distance of up to 300 feet, well 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 RSA-154C is compatible with Siemens V2F and V7F series of single- or twin-mounted 200 A switches with a height of 10 inches. Typical applications include small-percent motor loads, motor starting circuits, and feeder circuits with less than 10 kA available fault current.

When compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-154C is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe. Optional features include radio remote with a range of up to 300 feet, 24 V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly. All RSA units are portable, fast, and easy to set up; offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection; are adjustable to fit unique electrical equipment configurations; reduce the requirements for personal protection equipment; and meet NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance standard.
