Denton, TX, April 21, 2020 — CBS ArcSafe® is pleased to announce that its wireless Chicken Switch®, RSK-CS01W, has won Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) magazine’s 2020 Product of the Year award in the Specialty Products category.
The wireless remote switch kit (RSK) operates control switches with pistol-grip handles, such as the Electroswitch Series 24/24P and the General Electric SB-1, from up to 100 feet away. The RSK-CS01W is temporarily installed over the control switch and held in place magnetically. No modification to switchgear is required. The wireless handheld controller allows the operator to be positioned outside the arc-flash hazard zone.
“CBS ArcSafe is honored to be named a category winner in EC&M’s Product of the Year awards,” says Tommy Phillips, president of CBS ArcSafe, Inc. “Our team strives to develop and deliver products that protect technicians from arc- flash incidents. Safety truly is our mission here at CBS ArcSafe.”
All RSK-CS01W models include an actuator, wireless handheld controller with 100-foot operating range, M18TM RedLithiumTM rechargeable battery, battery charger, durable and waterproof Pelican® carrying case, and instruction manual.
CBS ArcSafe has previously won Product of the Year honors from EC&M (2012, 2016–2018), Occupational Health & Safety magazine (2012–2018), and Plant Engineering magazine (2009, 2014, 2018–2019). Other CBS ArcSafe product honors include a Readers’ Choice Award from Industrial Safety & Hygiene News in 2015.
Voting for the top three overall products will take place May 25, 2020, through June 21, 2020, with winners officially announced in mid-July. Only EC&M print subscribers are qualified to vote. EC&M is part of the Endeavor Business Media family.
