CBS ArcSafe® Introduces RSS-3 AMH for General Electric Type AMH
Press release date: January 26, 2016
Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. The RRS-3 AMH is compatible with Type AMH circuit breakers with ratings of 1200-2000 A, including AMH-4.76-100/250/350-OD-1D. The RRS-3 AMH consists of three parts, the racking operator, the foot pedal operator, and an interlock defeat tool. Typical applications of the GE AMH circuit breaker include commercial, industrial, and service entrance applications to protect and switch mains, feeders, and incoming lines. The RRS-3 AMH 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 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.
