CBS ArcSafe® Universal Circuit Breaker Remote Racking Systems

CBS ArcSafe Type RSS-1 universal remote racking system in use with 480-volt circuit breakers
CBS ArcSafe universal remote racking systems meet a growing demand for an affordable, safe alternative to manually racking circuit breakers which reduces the requirement for service personnel to wear a full-body arc flash hazard suit for protection.
ec   By permitting the automatic racking of the circuit breaker from a remote location, the CBS ArcSafe remote racking systems move service personal outside the arc flash protection boundary, increasing safety from arc flash hazards and thus reducing the need for a full-body arc flash hazard suit.

When used in conjunction with the CBS ArcSafe remote switch operator, the user can also operate, trip, and close release the circuit breaker from a safe distance.

CBS ArcSafe remote racking system moves your personnel outside the arc flash protection boundry

The unique design of the CBS ArcSafe universal remote racking system with its specially manufactured drive shafts and couplings enable the system to be used with numerous different types of circuit breakers produced by the major switchgear manufacturers.

It can be used with drawout types of air, SF6 and vacuum circuit breakers that have either a horizontal or vertical racking operation.

There are 2 styles of the CBS ArcSafe remote racking system:

  • Model RRS-1, which is used with circuit breakers that require a jack screw type mechanism for insertion and removal
  • Model RRS-2, which is used with circuit breakers that use non-rotary methods to install and remove the breaker; and thus require an extraction type mechanism for insertion and removal

The CBS ArcSafe universal remote racking systems can accommodate a wide variety of low and medium voltage circuit breaker types from different manufacturers.

The following lists are not all-inclusive. Please contact us if your breaker type(s) are not shown.
