CBS ArcSafe introduces new remote switch actuator

12 September 2017

Denton, Texas-based CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, has introduced its remote switch actuator (RSA) for the Siemens Vacu-Break® V2F and V7F series of fusible panel units. 

The CBS ArcSafe RSA-154C aims to allow technicians to remotely close or trip a Siemens panelboard switch (PBS) from a safe distance of up to 300 feet, well outside the arc-flash boundary. Installation and operation do not require any modifications to the existing electrical equipment, thanks to CBS ArcSafe's magnetic latching system. 

The RSA-154C is compatible with Siemens V2F and V7F series of single- or twin-mounted 200 A switches with a height of 10 inches. Typical applications include small-percent motor loads, motor starting circuits and feeder circuits with less than 10 kA available fault current.
