November 21, 2016 – The remote switch actuator (RSA) for the Merlin Gerin insulated case circuit breaker (ICCB) has made its debut from CBS ArcSafe, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear.
The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-119 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the ICCB from a distance of up to 300 ft while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.
Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment, says CBS ArcSafe, thanks to its magnetic latching system. The RSA-119 is compatible with all closed-door Mechanical Products (MP) breakers.
Optional features include radio remote with range of up to 300 ft, 24V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor and rugged protective case assembly.
