The RSA-73B remote switch actuator (RSA) for the General Electric Type High Pressure Contact (HPC) switch is lightweight, portable, and allows technicians to remotely close or trip the GE HPC switch from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed 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. The RSA-73B is compatible with Type HPC switches with ratings of 800-1600 A, with manual or electric trip with top feed (inverted style). Typical applications include high available fault current systems such as main service disconnects, feeder disconnects, or branch circuit disconnects. When compared to other arc-flash mitigation alternatives, the RSA-73B is a cost-effective solution for keeping operators safe. Optional features include radio remote with range of up to 300 feet, 24-Vdc LED light, wireless video camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly.
