INSTALLATION
Remove Shipping Brackets / Angles
from the Transfer Switch
The ASCO 7000 Series Automatic Delayed–Transition
Transfer & Bypass–Isolation Switch (ADTB) consists
of an upper bypass–isolation switch, a transfer switch, a
monitoring and transfer controller, and door–mounted
controls. The ADTB is factory wired and tested.
Installation requires removal of the shipping skid then
securing the enclosure to the supporting foundation.
Open the lower front door(s). The Transfer Switch
carriage is secured to the frame for shipment. Remove
the three or four shipping brackets or L–angles:
(1 upper left, 1 upper right, 1 lower right, or 2 lower on
4000 A).
Remove the Shipping Skid
Open the front lower door and remove the two front
lag screws securing the enclosure to the wood skid.
Next remove the rear lower panel and remove the two
rear lag screws securing the enclosure to the wood skid.
To prevent serious damage, remove three or
four shipping brackets or L–angles from the
Transfer Switch carriage. Do not turn the
Isolation Handle until they are removed!
Supporting foundation and mounting
The supporting foundation for the enclosure must be
level and straight. Allow at least 35 inches in front of
the enclosure for draw out of the Transfer Switch.
Refer to the enclosure outline drawing included with
the 7000 Series ADTB for all mounting details
including door opening space.
If bottom cable entry is used, the foundation must be
prepared so that the conduit stubs are located
correctly. Refer to the appropriate enclosure outline
drawing for specified cable entrance area and location.
Provide cable bending space and clearance to live metal
parts. When a concrete floor is poured, use
interlocking conduit spacer caps or a wood or metal
template to maintain proper conduit alignment.
Mounting
remove 3 or 4 shipping brackets ( L–angles)
Refer to the enclosure outline drawing furnished with
this switch and mount the 7000 Series ADTB according
to the details and instructions shown on the drawing.

INSTALLATION (continued)
Bus Connections
If bus connection is used, use SAE grade 5 hardware to
connect bus to appropriate terminal plates on bypass
switching device. Wipe off bus surfaces before they are
joined. If bus is dirty, gently clean surfaces with a
non-flammable solvent. Avoid touching cleaned
surfaces.
De–energize the conductors before making any
line or auxiliary circuitry connections. Be sure
that Normal and Emergency line connections
are in proper phase rotation. Place engine
generator starting control in the OFF position.
Make sure engine generator is not in operation.
Testing Power Conductors
Do not breathe cleaning solvent vapors.
Do not connect the power conductors to the ADTB
until they are tested. Installing power cables in
conduit, cable troughs, and ceiling-suspended hangers
often requires considerable force. The pulling of
cables can damage insulation and stretch or break the
conductor’s strands. For this reason, after the cables
are pulled into position, and before they are connected
they should be tested to verify that they are not
defective or have been damaged during installation.
Use SAE grade 5 hardware and tighten the bolted joints
to the torque specified in Table 2-1.
The reliability of the connection depends
on how clean and how tight the joint is.

Protect the switch from construction grit
and metal chips to prevent malfunction or
shortened life of the ADTB switch.
Connecting Power Conductors
A Wiring Diagram is furnished with the ADTB. All
wiring must be made in accordance with the local
codes. After the power cables have been tested,
connect them to the appropriate terminal lugs on the
Bypass Switch as shown on the wiring diagram
provided with this ADTB. Make sure that the lugs
provided are suitable for use with the cables being
installed. Standard terminal lugs are solderless screw
type and will accept the wire sizes listed on the
drawings provided with the ADTB. Be careful when
stripping insulation from conductors; avoid nicking or
ringing the conductor. Remove surface oxides from
conductors by cleaning with a wire brush. Follow
conductor manufacturer’s instructions when aluminum
conductor is used. Apply joint compound to conductor,
then carefully wipe away excess compound. Tighten
the cable lugs to the torque specified on the rating
label.
Harnesses
All internal connections are made at the factory. The
bypass switch, transfer switch, and control panel are
joined together by an interconnecting wire harness.
The disconnect plugs are already engaged on enclosed
switches. For open–type switches, the plugs must be
engaged after installation is completed. Align harness
plugs with sockets in the control and push them
together until they are secure.
Controller Ground
A grounding wire must be connected to the controller’s
lower left mounting stud. Because the controller is
mounted on the enclosure door, a conductive strap
must be used between the enclosure and the door.
This connection provides proper grounding which does
not rely upon the door hinges.
Engine Starting Contacts
and Auxiliary Circuits
Be sure that the Normal and Emergency power
connections are in proper phase rotation.
The engine control contact signal connections and
auxiliary circuits are located on terminal block TB as
shown on the Wiring Diagram provided with the ADTB.
Connect the signal wires to the appropriate terminals.

BYPASSING & ISOLATING (continued)
RETURN TO SERVICE continued*
This procedure explains how to return the Bypass Switch
Handle to the OPEN position. The Bypass Handle must
be in the CLOSED position (yellow indicator on
NORMAL or EMERGENCY) and the Isolation Handle
must be in the TEST position (window). If the handles
are not in these positions, refer to Return to Service on
page 3–3. See Figures 3–11, 3–12, and 3–13.
You can only bypass to the same source that
the ATS is connected. Solenoid interlock
prevents incorrect operation.
