2 R EMOTE S OLUTIONS LLC Who we are: Manufacturer solely dedicated to design and manufacturing leading edge C/B racking systems and products. Remote racking and switchgear application experts What we make: Fully automated remote racking systems (SRH & SRN). Remote breaker operation devices Accessories 9/27/2010 2

3 Alignment Philosophy - Use the switchgear as a reference and align only once. “Human Proof” - Establish a “chain of rejection” to prevent human error. Ease of Use & Switchgear Damage Prevention - Create elements that make operators want to use the system and prevent damage to switchgear as a result of using remote racking equipment. Maximum Portability & Scalable Platform R EMOTE S OLUTIONS – W HY A RE W E D IFFERENT ? 4 M AJOR R EASONS 9/27/2010 3

4 Electrical incidents rank sixth among all cause of work related deaths in the US Average of 4,000 non-disabling and 3,600 disabling electrical contact injuries annually in the US. One person is electrocuted in the workplace every day. Over 20,000 workers are sent to burn centers each year with electrical related burn injuries An Arc Flash Blast occurs 5-10 times each day in the US. 1 EC&M Magazine - Preventing Arc Flash Incidents in the Workplace EC&M Magazine - Preventing Arc Flash Incidents in the Workplace Electrical Incident Statistics Electrical Incident Statistics 1 9/27/2010 4

6 F AILURE F ACTS An arc flash incident is always the result of at least one of the five change of states. OEMs did not generally design switchgear to allow for survivability of human operators when performing switchgear related tasks. Regulations and standards are typically developed as a result of tragic incidents and are often written in blood. 9/27/2010 6

7 R EGULATIONS AND S TANDARDS OSHA 29 CFR 1910 – OSHA is the enforcer – Now recognized arc-flash as a work place hazard NFPA 70E – 2009 – The “how to” standard. Provides guidance on specific steps that must be taken to comply with the more general OSHA standards. This regulation specified that arc-flash study must be completed by Jan. 1, 2009 Other significant design codes and standards: o IEEE 1584 – Provides steps required to perform calculation of incident energy from which decisions about appropriate PPE are made. Takes into account the role of the over current protective device. o ANSI/NFPA o National Electric Code o NESC 9/27/2010 7
