Denton, Texas, January 18, 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 General Electric Type High Pressure Contact (HPC) switch. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-73B allows technicians to remotely close or trip the GE HPC switch 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 RSA-73B is compatible with Type HPC switches with ratings of 800-1600 A, with manual or electric trip with top feed (inverted style). Typical applications include high available fault current systems such as main service disconnects, feeder disconnects, or branch circuit disconnects. When compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-73B is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe.
Optional features include radio remote with 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 help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.
