Handheld Motorized Circuit Breaker Racking Tool

Handheld Motorized Circuit Breaker Racking Tool PPE-Z (in use)
CBS ArcSafe PPE-Z Handheld Motorized Circuit Breaker Racking Tool Unit

The CBS ArcSafe PPE-Z is a handheld powered racking device capable of racking most rotary style low and medium voltage switchgear.

The PPE-Z utilizes a high torque motor to rack breakers at approximately the same speed as a human operator, but without the added trouble of operator fatigue. This means that operators will be more efficient, thus reducing the amount of time spent within the arc flash boundary.

Note: This product is not suitable for operations in the “Extreme Danger” incident energy category.

The simple two button operation and soft hand grips allow users to operate the PPE-Z easily and efficiently even when outfitted with the most cumbersome PPE.

The AC/DC power system means that operators will always have the power they need when they need it.
