Remote Switch Actuator for Cutler Hammer Panelboard Switch

The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-184 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the circuit breaker from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

CBS ArcSafe has introduced its remote switch actuator for Cutler-Hammer FDPW fusible panelboard switches. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-184 allows technicians to remotely close or trip the circuit breaker 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-184 is compatible with 30, 60, and 100 A twin, horizontal fused switches with 5.375" height. Typical applications of these circuit breakers include commercial, industrial, and service entrance applications to protect and switch feeder and branch circuits. The RSA-184 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.

All CBS ArcSafe products are manufactured in the U.S. at our manufacturing facility in Denton, Texas. For more information, visit CBSArcSafe.com or call 877-4-SAFETY.
