CBS ArcSafe® Introduces RSA-164J Square D PowerPact, P-Frame 250-1200 A

Press release date: May 31, 2016

Denton, Texas,  – CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator (RSA) for the Square D PowerPact, P-Frame 250-1200 A, manually operated molded case circuit breaker. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-164J allows technicians to remotely 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-164J is compatible with manually operated PG, PJ, PK, and PL breakers. Typical applications of these circuit breakers include metering, monitoring, and protection for motors, transformers, and other large non-linear loads. The RSA-164J 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.
