CBS ArcSafe SecureConnect - Product of the Year winnerDenton, Texas, April 3, 2018 – CBS ArcSafe® is pleased to announce that the SecureConnect™ Remote Operator for Allen-Bradley® CENTERLINE® 2100 Motor Control Centers (MCCs) equipped with SecureConnect has won Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) magazine’s 2018 Product of the Year award in the Specialty Products category.

Designed in cooperation with Rockwell Automation, the 13-pound SecureConnect Remote Operator allows technicians, standing up to 300 feet away, to remotely disconnect an individual plug-in SecureConnect unit from the CENTERLINE 2100 MCC vertical power bus while the enclosure door is closed. Before this unit was introduced, technicians manually operated the SecureConnect while standing in front of an MCC. While the enclosure door provides some protection, the SecureConnect remote operator allows the technician to operate the system from up to 50 feet away via wired tether, or up to 300 feet using CBS ArcSafe’s wireless pendant.

“CBS ArcSafe is honored to be recognized by EC&M and its distinguished panel of safety professionals for our continued commitment to developing electrical safety solutions that protect our customers’ technicians,” says Tommy Phillips, operations manager of CBS ArcSafe, Inc. “It is this type of acknowledgment that motivates the CBS ArcSafe team to continue finding new ways to keep technicians safe from arc-flash hazards.”

CBS ArcSafe’s RRS-3 SecoVac (IEEE) won EC&M magazine’s 2017 Product of the Year award in the Specialty Products category. CBS ArcSafe also won EC&M magazine’s 2016, 2012, and 2010 Product of the Year awards in the Specialty Products category and has won Product of the Year awards from Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) magazine (2012–2017) and Plant Engineering magazine (2009, 2014).

Installation and operation of the SecureConnect Remote Operator system is quick and simple and does not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment. This new remote operator is the latest addition to CBS ArcSafe’s line of remote racking and switching solutions for circuit breakers, switchgear, and motor controls, which includes the RRS-2 BE universal remote racking system, designed specifically for motor control applications.
