Circuit Breaker & MCC Bucket Extractor Remote Racking Systems
Each CBS ArcSafe® remote racking system enables service personnel to stand outside the arc flash protection boundary while installing or removing low- and medium-voltage draw-out circuit breakers or MCC buckets, thus reducing the need for a full-body arc flash hazard suit.
CBS ArcSafe extractor remote racking devices can accommodate a wide variety of low- and medium-voltage circuit breaker types or mcc buckets from different manufacturers.
The unique design of each extractor remote racking system with its specially manufactured drive shafts and couplings enable it to accommodate numerous types of circuit breakers or mcc buckets which do not use a jack screw rotary mechanism for insertion and extraction.
About CBS ArcSafe® Remote Racking Systems
When used in conjunction with the CBS ArcSafe remote switch operator, the user can also operate, trip, and close release the circuit breaker from a safe distance.
The unique design of the CBS ArcSafe universal remote racking system with its specially manufactured drive shafts and couplings enable the system to be used with different types of circuit breakers produced by the major switchgear manufacturers. It can be used with drawout types of air, SF6, and vacuum circuit breakers that have either a horizontal or vertical racking operation.
The CBS ArcSafe universal remote racking systems can accommodate a wide variety of low- and medium-voltage circuit breaker types from different manufacturers.
Primary Benefits of the CBS ArcSafe Remote Racking Systems
- Remote operation places operator outside the arc-flash protection boundary
- Use with low- and medium-voltage circuit breakers produced by all the major switchgear manufacturers
- Use with many lever actuated racking switchgear models that do not utilize rotary racking mechanisms
- Actuator height easily adjusted
- Quick-connect and -release drive actuators simplify setup
- Redundant AC/DC power
- Hand-truck design provides easy mobility
- Aid compliance with NFPA 70E relative to protecting personnel by using external circuit breaker rack-out devices
CBS ArcSafe Circuit Breaker & Circuit Breaker Racking System Models
The RRS-2 is a universal remote racking system capable of removing or inserting low- and medium-voltage non-rotary circuit breakers while the operator remains outside the arc-flash boundary. This device is portable, weighing less than 200 pounds, as well as user friendly, requiring no modifications to the switchgear or circuit breaker. Each system will be custom-designed to fit your circuit breaker needs.
The RRS-2 BE is CBS ArcSafe’s specially designed counterpart to the industry leading RRS-2 universal remote racking system for extraction style breakers. The RRS-2 BE is designed specifically for Motor Control Center (MCC) bucket removal applications where users would normally be required to perform the install or remove operation manually.
