“These awards are judged by an independent panel of veteran safety professionals looking for innovation, quality, ease of use and overall value, and to have two products singled out for this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire CBS ArcSafe team,” says Ashley McWhorter, president of CBS ArcSafe, Inc. “This recognition inspires us to further innovate tools and solutions that will continue to protect our country’s workers.”

The CBS ArcSafe RSA-161A actuators are designed for all 3-in. handle versions of the Schneider Class 9421 Type L circuit breaker mechanisms, which operate circuit breakers or interrupters of 75A to 250A at up to 600V. This actuator allows technicians to safely operate the breakers while stationed outside of the arc-flash hazard boundary without any modification to the breaker.

The CBS ArcSafe RSA-174F remote switch actuators are designed to remotely operate ABB/Sace Tmax T7 low-voltage molded case circuit breakers with current ratings of 1000A through 1600A. The RSA-174F actuators are designed for Tmax T7 breakers equipped with over-toggle mechanisms and allow technicians to safely close and
open breakers while stationed outside of the arc-flash hazard boundary without any modification to the breaker.

CBS ArcSafe previously won Product of the Year awards from OH&S (2013) and EC&M magazine (2012), and also was named a finalist by Plant Engineering magazine in 2012.
