RakTek Model VCPR
The RAKTEK VCPR portable remote racking device is designed specifically for use with Eaton Cutler-Hammer VCP-W medium voltage circuit breakers. There are three major components to the VCPR. The power supply which can be fed from either the on-board sealed lead acid batteries or an AC power source, the hand-held control unit, and the racking head.
The racking head attaches easily and precisely to the front of the breaker cubical. A high-quality, low-light video camera is mounted in the rear of the racking motor and is aimed at the breaker. The video from this camera is displayed on a screen on the hand-held control unit and allows the operator to continuously monitor the position of the breaker as well as the progress that is being made during racking. The breaker position indicator flag is also within camera view and is visible on the display screen. Additionally, a bar graph is integrated on the display which indicates the amount of torque that is being applied to the racking mechanism giving the operator critical feedback as to how well the racking process is progressing.
Key benefits of the RAKTEK VCPR remote racking device include:
- Rugged and highly portable
- Entire kit weighs less than 35lbs
- Easiest to use, most economical remote racking system that is available for VCP-W breakers
