May 15, 2015 – CBS ArcSafe has a new remote switch actuator for Square D HVL/cc medium-voltage load interrupter switches (LIS). The RSA-27 actuator allows technicians to remotely close or open the switches from a distance while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.
Installation and operation of the RSA-27 does not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment due to magnets and existing features, the company explained. The RSA-27 is compatible with all Square D HVL/cc LIS, with the over-toggle mechanism in indoor or outdoor applications, and with ratings from 2.4 to 38kV, 60 to 150kV BIL, and 600 to 1200A.
Typical applications of the Square D HVL/cc LIS include medium-voltage electrical power distribution systems, feeders, and substations commonly found in petrochemical plants, oil platforms, hospitals, and industrial facilities.
