Circuit Breaker & MCC Bucket Extractor Remote Racking Systems

CBS ArcSafe Extrator Remote Racking SystemEach CBS ArcSafe® remote racking system enables service personnel to stand outside the arc-flash protection boundary while installing or removing low- and medium-voltage draw-out circuit breakers or motor control center (MCC) buckets, reducing the need for full-body arc-flash hazard suits.

CBS ArcSafe extractor remote racking devices can accommodate a wide variety of low- and medium-voltage circuit breaker types or MCC buckets from different manufacturers.

The unique design of each extractor remote racking system, with its specially manufactured drive shafts and couplings, enables it to accommodate numerous types of circuit breakers or MCC buckets that do not use a jack screw rotary mechanism for insertion and extraction.

When using the system in conjunction with the CBS ArcSafe remote switch operator, the user can operate, trip and close-release the circuit breaker from a safe distance.

The unique design of the CBS ArcSafe universal remote racking system, with its specially manufactured drive shafts and couplings, enables the system to be used with different types of circuit breakers produced by the major switchgear manufacturers. It can be used with draw-out types of air, SF6 and vacuum circuit breakers that have either a horizontal or a vertical racking operation.

CBS ArcSafe Circuit Breaker & Circuit Breaker Racking System Models

Universal Extractor Remote Racking System (RRS-2)

The RRS-2 is a universal remote racking system capable of removing or inserting low- and medium-voltage non-rotary circuit breakers while the operator remains outside the arc-flash boundary. This device is portable, weighing less than 90 kilograms, as well as user-friendly, requiring no modifications to the switchgear or circuit breaker. Each system is custom-designed to fit your circuit breaker needs.

Universal MCC Bucket Extractor Remote Racking System (RRS-2 BE)

The RRS-2 BE is CBS ArcSafe’s specially designed counterpart to the industry-leading RRS-2 universal remote racking system for extraction-style breakers. The RRS-2 BE is designed specifically for MCC bucket removal applications where users would normally be required to perform the install or remove operation manually.
