RSA-27 Remote Switch Actuator for Square D HVL/cc Medium Voltage Load Interrupter Switches

Denton, Texas, May 11, 2015 – CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator for Square D HVL/cc medium-voltage load interrupter switches (LIS). The new CBS ArcSafe® RSA-27 actuator allows technicians to remotely close or open the switches from a safe distance while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

Installation and operation of the CBS ArcSafe RSA-27 do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment due to the use of magnets and existing features. It also is so quick and effortless that a single person can perform the task. The CBS ArcSafe RSA-27 is compatible with all Square D HVL/cc medium-voltage metal-enclosed switchgear LIS equipped with the over toggle mechanism in indoor or outdoor applications and with ratings from 2.4 to 38 kV, 60 to 150 kV BIL, and 600 to 1200 A. Typical applications of the Square D HVL/cc LIS include medium-voltage electrical power distribution systems, feeders, and substations commonly found in petrochemical plants, oil platforms, hospitals, and industrial facilities. The CBS ArcSafe RSA-27 is a safer and more cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.
