CBS ArcSafe introduces RSA-242 for ABB/Sace Novomax
CBS ArcSafe, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator (RSA) for the ABB/Sace Novomax air circuit breaker (ACB). The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-242 allows technicians to remotely close or trip an ABB/Sace Novomax ACB from a safe distance of up to 300 feet, well outside the arc-flash boundary.
Installation and operation do not require any modifications to existing electrical equipment, thanks to CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching system. Typical applications include general protection of low-voltage primary and secondary distribution, generators, motors, transformers, and capacitors. When compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-242 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when using ABB/Sace Novomax breakers.
Optional features include a radio remote with a range up to 300 feet, a 24 V DC LED light, a wireless video camera system with an LCD monitor, and a rugged protective case assembly. All RSA units are portable, with fast and easy setup. They offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection, adjust to fit unique electrical equipment configurations, reduce requirements for personal protection equipment, and meet NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance standards.
