CBS ArcSafe® Introduces RSA-174F Remote Switch Actuator for ABB/Sace Tmax T7 Molded Case Circuit Breakers
Press release date: August 14, 2014
Denton, Texas — CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator for the ABB/Sace Tmax T7 low-voltage molded case circuit breakers with current ratings of 1000A through 1600A. The new CBS ArcSafe RSA-174F actuators are designed for Tmax T7 breakers equipped with over-toggle mechanisms and allow technicians to safely close and open breakers while stationed outside of the arc-flash hazard boundary without any modification to the breaker. This new remote switch actuator is designed to mount directly to the Tmax T7 breaker, which may be recessed inside of an electrical cabinet in many installations.
When accompanied by a CBS ArcSafe remote switch operator (RSO) control unit, the RSA-174F reduces the need for arc-flash suits and eliminates all hazardous manual contact with gear during operation by providing open and close operation from up to 300 feet away. The actuator is lightweight, portable, simple to install and set up, and provides technicians with a simple solution for hard-to-access breaker locations. The RSA-174F requires no modifications to be installed and operated, and can be easily moved from one breaker to another quickly.
Optional features for the RSA-174F include a radio remote with a range of up to 300 feet, a wired or wireless video camera system with LCD monitor for remote viewing, and a custom-fit rugged storage case. When combined, these features make the RSA-174F easy to install and remove, allowing technicians to quickly and safely set up and operate different sets of the same electrical equipment.
