June 9, 2015 – CBS ArcSafe had introduced its remote switch actuator for General Electric Q-Line molded case circuit breakers (MCCBs). The new RSA-56C actuator allows technicians to remotely close or open the circuit breakers from a safe distance while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.
Installation and operation of the RSA-56C does not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment, CBS ArcSafe noted. The product is compatible with all type THQD, THQDL, TQD, and TQDL General Electric Q-Line MCCBs with 2/3 poles and rated for 100-225A.
Typical applications of these circuit breakers include switchboards, motor control centers and lighting, power, and customized control panel boards.
