Remote circuit breaker racking systems and remote switch actuators reduce the need for full-body arc-flash hazard suits by taking technicians outside the arc-flash boundary. Universal remote racking systems offer adjustable height settings, do not require modifications to switchgear, motor controls, or circuit breakers, and are available for virtually any style or piece of electrical equipment.
Remote Racking and Switching Systems
Universal Rotary Remote Racking System (RRS-1)
RRS-1 is a universal remote racking system capable of removing or inserting low- and medium-voltage draw out circuit breakers which use a jack screw rotary racking mechanism while the operator remains outside the arc-flash boundary. This device is portable, weighing less than 200 pounds, is user friendly, and requires no modifications to the switchgear or circuit breakers. Optional features allow each system to be customized to meet your specific remote circuit breaker racking requirements.
Lightweight Rotary Remote Racking System (RRS-1 LT)
For low-voltage breakers. The RRS-1 LT is a lightweight version of the RRS-1 that is capable of being easily disassembled and moved through small openings. High Lift and Radio Remote come standard on the RRS-1 LT.
Universal Extractor Remote Racking System (RRS-2)
The RRS-2 is a universal remote racking system capable of removing or inserting low- and medium-voltage non-rotary circuit breakers while the operator remains outside the arc-flash boundary. This device is portable, weighing less than 200 pounds, as well as user friendly, requiring no modifications to the switchgear or circuit breaker. Each system will be custom-designed to fit your circuit breaker needs.
Universal MCC Bucket Extractor Remote Racking System (RRS-2 BE)
The RRS-2 BE is CBS ArcSafe’s specially designed counterpart to the industry leading RRS-2 universal remote racking system for extraction style breakers. The RRS-2 BE is designed specifically for Motor Control Center (MCC) bucket removal applications where users would normally be required to perform the install or remove operation manually.
Remote Switch Actuator (RSA)
A remote switch actuator allows service personnel to move, push, pull, charge, close, and/or trip circuit breakers and other electrical equipment from a safe distance in conjunction with a CBS ArcSafe RSO. The remote switching actuator attaches to the front of your circuit breaker and is mechanically assisted by magnets without the need for any modification to your switchgear. After setup and installation, the RSO controls the RSA’s operation.
