CBS ArcSafe releases partial discharge sensor for RRS line
By Renée Francoeur
April 12, 2016 – CBS ArcSafe, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, has released its PD Alert, the partial discharge sensor option to its Remote Racking System (RRS) line.
CBS Arc Safe says this optional PD Alert provides an additional layer of safety for technicians tasked with racking or removing circuit breakers and motor control centers. In the event of a breakdown in line-to-line or line-to-ground insulation, the PD Alert radio frequency (RF) non-contact sensor issues a visual strobe alarm or digital alarm via email or SMS text message.
The PD Alert can be used with any of CBS ArcSafe’s remote racking systems and also serve as a stand alone partial discharge sensor for monitoring critical electrical distribution equipment.
