CBS ArcSafe® Introduces RSA-35 for Westinghouse 11-300 MCC Bucket

Press release date: August 9, 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 Westinghouse motor control center bucket. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-35 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the motor control center bucket 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-35 is compatible with the Eaton/Cutler-Hammer MCCB slide-plate type handle mechanism (314C386G02, 314C386G03, 314C386G05, 315C386G06, 314C386G09, and 314C386G10) motor control center buckets. Typical applications include switching and protection of squirrel-cage, wound-rotor, and synchronous motors. The RSA-35 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.
