These powerful automatic transfer switches are used in applications where the robustness and ease of operation are required. The ATS is equipped with a microprocessor panel which controls the operation and displays the status of the transfer switches position, timers and available sources. The digital controller offers high reliability and ease of unattended operation across a range of most demanded load transfer applications. The unit has a high transfer speed and is designed for emergency and standby applications. The choice of automatic transfer switch unit is determined by the size of the generator and the power required and must be able to carry the fully rated load of the generator.
Technical specifications of a 1250 AMP 3 POLE ATS SWITCH
The unit has a rated current of 1250 Amps and is a three phase automatic transfer switch. The fast transfer time of around 0.45 seconds will lock out the main power source and connect to the standby source rapidly so that there is very little delay. It is a robust unit that will work in temperatures of between -10 degrees Celsius up to a maximum of 50 degrees Celsius. It can be safely stored in a wider range of temperatures, namely -20 degrees Celsius up to 70 degrees Celsius without sustaining damage. The unit must be installed by a qualified electrical contractor or electrician.
Benefits of using a 1250 AMP 3 POLE ATS SWITCH
The greatest benefit is that there need be no operator on duty at all times. The ATS automatically senses the drop in current and can turn on the generator when need be. The standby generator is often in an out of the way place as it is large and cumbersome. A manual switch is not easy to access in this position and could take some time to turn on. An automatic transfer switch is therefore necessary if a continuous power supply is required. Almost all businesses rely on electricity to power all their equipment, even shops and small concerns. Having backup power can ensure that there is never any downtime.
