ArcSafe has launched a remote switch actuator for the General Electric Type
High-Pressure Contact (HPC) switch applications. The RSA-73B switch actuator
allows technicians to remotely close or trip the GE HPC switch from a safe
distance of up to 300 feet while being stationed outside of the arc-flash



ArcSafe’s switch actuator can be used in higher fault current systems such as
main service disconnects, feeder disconnects, or branch circuit disconnects.
The device — compatible with Type HPC
switches with ratings of 800–1600 A — offers manual
or electric trip with top feed.

switch actuator units are portable and employ CBS ArcSafe’s magnetic latching
system to ensure that installation and operation don’t require any
modifications to the existing electrical equipment. The RSA-73B units also
comply with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety standard.

CBS ArcSafe also offers optional features for
its switch actuator, including radio remote with range of up to 300 feet,
wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, 24-Vdc LED light, and rugged
protective case assembly.
