POY Finalist: Remote racking/breaker device

Finalist in Power Transmission in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
By Edited by Gust Gianos, Plant Engineering November 1, 2011

The MMR1000 remote racking device provides a means of remotely inserting or removing any drawout circuit breaker in the Magnum DS family of air circuit breakers (ACBs) to help mitigate arc flash exposure.

The MRR1000 permits the operator to remotely open and close a breaker from up to 25 ft away during the rack-in or rack-out process, a distance well beyond the arc flash boundary for traditional LV switchgear. It also allows for manual operation of the breaker as well as racking.
