Switchgear: Remote switch actuator from CBS ArcSafe

switchgear CBS ArcSafe

Switchgear design: CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator for General Electric Type HPC High Pressure Contact Switches. The new CBS ArcSafe® RSA-73A actuator allows technicians to remotely charge, close, and/or trip the switches from a safe distance while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

Installation and operation of the CBS ArcSafe RSA-73A is quick, simple, and does not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment. The RSA-73A is compatible with all styles of General Electric Type HPC High Pressure Contact Switches. Typical applications of these switches include main service, feeder, and branch circuit disconnects, as well as both transformer and large motor disconnects. The CBS ArcSafe RSA-73A is a safer, more cost-effective solution when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

All CBS ArcSafe products are manufactured in the U.S. at our manufacturing facility in Denton, Texas.
