Denton, TX, November 14, 2019 — The CBS ArcSafe® RSA-152G remote switch actuator has been named a finalist in Plant Engineering magazine’s 2019 Product of the Year program in the Safety category. The RSA-152G remote switch actuator is designed to safely and remotely operate the Boltswitch T series of bolted pressure switches from a safe distance of up to 300 feet, well outside the arc-flash boundary.

“We are once again honored to have one of our products named in Plant Engineering magazine’s Product of the Year program,” says Tommy Phillips, general manager of CBS ArcSafe, Inc. “Our goal is always to engineer the best and safest products possible.”

Compared with arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-152G is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe. Installation and operation do not require any modifications to existing electrical equipment thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RSA-152G is compatible with the 400–1200 A Boltswitch T Series, including T225–228, T265–268, T325–328, and T365–368. Typical applications include low-voltage power control and distribution.

Since 2009, CBS ArcSafe has won four Product of the Year awards from Plant

Engineering for innovative safety products that protect electricians and maintenance personnel from arc-flash danger. Other recent CBS ArcSafe honors include Product of the Year awards from Electrical Construction & Maintenance magazine (2012, 2016–2018) and Occupational Health & Safety magazine (2012–2018), plus a Readers’ Choice Award in 2015 from Industrial Safety & Hygiene News.

Plant Engineering is part of the CFE Media family. Voting for qualified subscribers to CFE Media products will be held from November 14, 2019, until January 10, 2020, with winners officially announced in April 2020.
