Remote Racking System for Circuit Breakers

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.
