Medium-Voltage Load Break Switch

The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-22 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the load break switch from a safe distance.

CBS ArcSafe has introduced its remote switch actuator (RSA) for the General Electric medium-voltage load break switch (IC1074 series). The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-22 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the load break switch from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed 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-22 is compatible with the IC1074, IC1074A, and IC1074B load break switches. Typical applications include squirrel-cage, wound-rotor, and synchronous motors, as well as feeding transformers and other power-utilization circuits. The RSA-22 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives.

Optional features include radio remote with range up to 300 feet, 24 V DC LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly. All RSA units are portable, fast and easy to set up, offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection, are adjustable to fit unique electrical equipment configurations, reduce the requirements for personal protection equipment (PPE), and help customers with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.
