Chicken Switch

The CS Series of actuators are a portable device designed to remotely operate control switches with pistol-grip style handles. Several models are available depending on the type of control switch being operated.

The CS Series of actuators are temporarily installed over you control switch and held in place magnetically. No modification to your switch gear is required. A hand-held controller, connected by a cable to the actuator allows the operator to be positioned outside the arc flash hazard zone.  A motor and gearbox in the actuator rotates the control switch on command from the hand-held controller. A microcontroller monitors controller inputs, assures correct switch position, and drives the motor through an intelligent H-bridge. The entire unit is battery powered (24VDC) which eliminates the need for external power.
