Energy management: Remote switch actuator for Sylvania/Zinsco QSF Series

Save It Saved

Energy management: CBS ArcSafe®, a manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, introduces its remote switch actuator (RSA) for the Sylvania/Zinsco QSF series of 100–600 A panelboard switches (PBSs). The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RSA-103 allows technicians to remotely close or trip a Sylvania/Zinsco PBS from a safe distance of up to 300 feet, well 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. Typical applications include switching and protection of low-voltage AC-power distribution systems. When compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-103 is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe when using Sylvania/Zinsco QSF series 100–600 A switches.

Optional features include radio remote with a range of 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; and meet NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance standards.
