Remote switch actuator for GE circuit breakers

Safety products: CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator (RSA) for General Electric EntelliGuard G circuit breakers. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-162 allows technicians to remotely charge, close, or trip the circuit breaker from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RSA-162 is compatible with GG/GJ/GH/GK-04/07/08/10/13/16/20/25/32/40/50/64 circuit breakers with ratings from 400-6,000 A. Typical applications of these circuit breakers include providing advanced circuit protection, limiting arc-fault energy, and preserving system coordination for power distribution systems. The RSA-162 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

Optional features include radio remote with range up to 300 feet, 24 V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly. All RSA units are portable, fast and easy to set up, offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection, are adjustable to fit unique electrical equipment configurations, reduce the requirements for personal protection equipment (PPE), and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.

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