By permitting the automatic racking of the circuit breaker from a remote location, the CBS ArcSafe circuit breaker remote racking system replaces the manual racking operation and removes the operating personnel from manual contact with the circuit breaker, thus increasing safety from arc flash hazards.
Features of the CBS ArcSafe Remote Racking System include:
Compatible with low and medium voltage circuit breakers produced by all the major switchgear manufacturers
Accommodates horizontal and vertical racking air, SF6, oil and vacuum circuit breakers
No modifications to the switchgear or circuit breaker are required
Remote operation places operator outside the arc flash protection boundary
Reduces the need for a full-body arc flash hazard suit
Height and angle of the drive is easily adjusted
Quick release drive shafts and couplings simplify setup
Over-racking protection is provided
Battery operated with built-in charger
AC over DC intelligent power system insures adequate power system is available to complete any racking operation
Hand-truck design provides easy mobility
Service personnel safety is enhanced because they can rack draw-out circuit breakers while standing outside the arc flash protection boundary, thus reducing the need for a full-body arc flash hazard suit.
