Demonstration of a CBS ArcSafe® RSA-117 remote switch actuator (RSA) system switching a Westinghouse WLI Load Interrupter Switch. CBS ArcSafe® application specific switching systems aid in arc flash safety by enabling service technicians to operate low and medium voltage electrical equipment while remaining outside of the arc flash boundary during the potentially hazardous operation. The CBS ArcSafe® RSA-117 is capable of remotely operating the equipment shown without requiring any modification to the existing switchgear. Operation of the simple to use RSA-117 is quite intuitive and requires only minimal setup. When used properly, the RSA-117 allows technicians to remain outside of the arc flash boundary during the potentially dangerous switching operation.

This video is intended for demonstration purposes only; and as such, all electrical equipment shown is de-energized and any PPE shown is not intended for actual arc flash protection. Actual users of the equipment shown must always comply with any applicable federal, state, local, or in-house safety protocols during use. This video is only intended to show the capabilities of the CBS ArcSafe® equipment and is not intended to serve as a training aid or as a substitute for training. CBS ArcSafe® requires that all personnel using the equipment shown be trained in its safe operation by a qualified CBS ArcSafe® representative.
