Energy management: The CBS ArcSafe® RSA-186 remote switch actuator (RSA) is designed to operate the Westinghouse Type ADM disconnect switch without having to make any modification to existing electrical equipment thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The lightweight, portable RSA-186 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the Westinghouse load break switch from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

The RSA-186 is compatible with Type ADM disconnect switches. Typical applications include use as a disconnect switch in AC-power systems up to 5,500 V, with or without fuses. Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the United States, 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; and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.

Optional features include radio remote with range of up to 300 feet, 24 V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly.
