September 19, 2018 – CBS ArcSafe has introduced its latest remote switch actuator (RSA) for Eaton‘s Series G – LG frame moulded case circuit breakers (MCCBs). Dubbed RSA-230B, the portable device allows technicians to remotely close or trip the circuit breaker from up to 300 feet away, while stationed safely outside the arc-flash boundary.
Thanks to a magnetic latching system, installation and operation do not require any modifications to existing electrical equipment. The RSA-230B is compatible with 100 to 630-A and 240 to 600-V AC flush-mounted Eaton Series G MCCBs with one to four poles, including the LG, LGE, LGS, LGH, LGU and LGX versions.
Typical applications include switching and protection of low-voltage (LV) AC and DC systems with high-available fault current. Optional features include a 24-V DC light-emitting diode (LED), a wireless video camera system with a liquid crystal display (LCD) and a rugged protective case assembly.
Manufactured in the U.S., the RSA-230B is available in Canada.
