Designed specifically for the General Electric (GE) Type AM breaker (includes AM – 4.16, 5, 7.2, 13.8, 15 with Clip In Elevating Motor, Each CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 MB II Single-Use Remote Racking System is a portable, standalone device designed to remotely rack a single type/style circuit breaker. These inexpensive, single-application remote breaker racking systems allow the operator to use a hand-control unit to install and remove a breaker while standing up to 300 feet away. RRS-3 units are most commonly assisted by strong magnets, meaning that no modifications are required to your switchgear. This also allows operators to easily move the RRS-3 from one breaker to another. Each RRS-3 is custom built to interface with your specific circuit breaker and is provided with a RSO-IV remote switch operator which is required for its operation. A radio remote control is also available.
