Denton, TX, November 27, 2018 — CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, now carries the Chicken Switch® brand of remote switching devices following the acquisition of Martek Limited in July 2018.

As the West Virginia–based manufacturer of the Chicken Switch , Martek Limited excelled in the design of lightweight, highly compact, and user-friendly remote switch kits for select low-voltage electrically operated control switches and circuit breakers. The addition of the Chicken Switch product line adds more than 40 patented arc-flash safety solutions to the CBS ArcSafe product portfolio.

Under CBS ArcSafe, the Chicken Switch devices will retain their original root part number from Martek Limited (for example, CS01) but will feature the added prefix RSK (Remote Switch Kit), which designates that the devices are sold as a complete solution or kit. The Chicken Switch does not require a separate remote switch operator (RSO) as legacy CBS ArcSafe equipment does.

All CBS ArcSafe products are manufactured in the United States at our facilities in Denton, TX, and Charleston, WV. For more information on the Chicken Switch line of remote switch kits and affiliated remote racking devices, visit or call 877-4-SAFETY.
