Original Press Release:
CBS ArcSafe® Introduces RSA-186 for Westinghouse Type ADM Disconnect Switch
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 Type ADM disconnect switch. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-186 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the Westinghouse load-break switch from a safe distance of up to 300 feet, well 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-186 is compatible with Type ADM disconnect switches. Typical applications include use as a disconnect switch in AC-power systems up to 5500 V, with or without fuses. When compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-186 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe.
Optional features include radio remote with a 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.
