safety products CBS ArcSafe

Safety products: The CBS ArcSafe® RSA-135A is a remote switch actuator that allows technicians to remotely close and open/trip the Pringle switch from a safe distance while stationed outside of the arc-flash boundary. Installation and operation of the RSA-135A is quick, simple, and does not require any modifications to the electrical equipment. The RSA-135A is compatible with all type QA/CBC Pringle switches with ratings of 2500A and up and equipped with shunt trip. Typical uses of these switches include heavy-duty applications such as rectifier disconnects, crane and electrified rail isolation, battery disconnects, and UPS systems. The CBS ArcSafe RSA-135A is a safer and more cost-effective solution when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.
