circuit breaker remote racking tool designed for a specific circuit breaker type/style.

Single-Use Portable Remote Racking Tools

Each CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 Single-Use Remote Racking System is a portable, standalone device designed to remotely rack a single type/style circuit breaker.

These inexpensive, single-application remote breaker racking systems allow the operator to use a hand-control unit to install and remove a breaker while standing up to 300 feet away.

RRS-3 units are most commonly assisted by strong magnets, meaning that no modifications are required to your switchgear. This also allows operators to easily move the RRS-3 from one breaker to another.

Each RRS-3 is custom built to interface with your specfic circuit breaker and is provided with a RSO-IV remote switch operator which is required for its operation. A radio remote control is also available.

The RRS-3 is compatible with the following circuit breaker models:

  • Operating distance: 300 feet
  • Frequency: 310-320 MHz
  • Security coding: 128-bit framing protocol with 32-bit serial number embedded; error detection and correction encoded
  • Environmental rating: IP65
  • Temperature rating: -35° to 75° C (-31° to 167° F)
  • TX size: 5.2″ x 1.75″ x 0.9″
  • TX weight: 5 ounces

Remote Switch Operator

Model RRS-3 requires the RSO-IV to operate. All RRS-3 units come with the RSO-IV.

With the RSO-IV, a service technician can remotely operate on RRS-3 remote racking device for circuit breakers from a safe distance.

By allowing service personnel to stand outside the arc-flash boundary, the CBS ArcSafe RSO-IV for the RRS-3 reduces the need for a full-body arc flash hazard suit.

Some units will require the RSO-IV-NW; the RSO-IV-NW is an extension of the RSO-IV that allows the operator to operate interlocks.
