CBS ArcSafe® Introduces RSA-57T for Square D N-Frame MCCB

Press release date: October 4, 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 N-Frame molded case circuit breaker (MCCB). The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-57T allows technicians to remotely close or trip the MCCB 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-57T is compatible with flush-mounted N-Frame breakers with ratings of 600-1200 A, with or without factory lockouts, including NE and NX frames. Typical applications include switching and protection of squirrel-cage, wound-rotor, and synchronous motors. The RSA-57T is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

Optional features include radio remote with range of 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, and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.
