Circuit breakers: Remote racking and switching solutions

circuit breaker CBS ArcSafe

Circuit breakers: CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its single-application remote racking system (RRS) for ABB Type ADVAC (CDL) vacuum circuit breakers. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 ADVAC (CDL) allows technicians to remotely install and remove 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 RRS-3 ADVAC (CDL) is compatible with Type ADVAC vacuum circuit breakers with ratings of 1200–3000 A, 5–15 kV with closed-door applications with exterior interlock lever. Typical usage of the ADVAC breaker includes commercial, industrial, and service entrance applications to protect and switch main, feeder, and incoming lines. The RRS-3 ADVAC (CDL) is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

Optional features include 25-foot extension cables, 24 V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly. All RRS-3 AKD-6 units are portable, fast, and easy to set up; offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection; adjust to fit unique electrical equipment configurations; reduce the requirements for personal protection equipment, and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.

All CBS ArcSafe products are manufactured in the United States at our facility in Denton, Texas.
