Each CBS ArcSafe® remote racking system enables service personnel to stand outside the arc-flash protection boundary while racking low- and medium-voltage draw-out circuit breakers, thus reducing the need for a full-body arc-flash hazard suit. Aid compliance with NFPA 70E relative to protecting personnel by using external circuit breaker rack-out devices.
CBS ArcSafe universal remote circuit breaker racking devices can accommodate a wide variety of low- and medium-voltage circuit breaker types from different manufacturers.
The unique design of each rotary remote racking system, with its specially manufactured driveshafts and couplings, enables it to accommodate numerous types of circuit breakers which have a jackscrew rotary mechanism for insertion and extraction.
They can be used with drawout-type air, SF6 and vacuum circuit breakers that have either a horizontal or vertical racking mechanism.

Aid compliance with NFPA 70E relative to protecting personnel by using external circuit breaker rack-out devices
Rotary Remote Circuit Breaker Racking System Models
RRS-1 is a universal remote racking system capable of removing or inserting low- and medium-voltage draw out circuit breakers which use a jack screw rotary racking mechanism while the operator remains outside the arc-flash boundary. This device is portable, weighing less than 90 kg, is user friendly, and requires no modifications to the switchgear or circuit breakers. Optional features allow each system to be customized to meet your specific remote circuit breaker racking requirements.
For low-voltage breakers. The RRS-1 LT is a lightweight version of the RRS-1 that is capable of being easily disassembled and moved through small openings. High Lift and Radio Remote come standard on the RRS-1 LT.
The RRS-4 boasts many of the same structural and mechanical components as the CBS ArcSafe RRS-1 unit, which makes it the most portable, easily adjustable, and user-friendly remote racking system in the industry today. What makes the RRS-4 different from its RRS-1 counterpart, or any other remote racking system on the market, for that matter, is that it is operated using a dual-mode, source-programmable controller. CCM mode is a truly universal operating mode capable of racking virtually any rotary-style breaker and requires minimal setup.
