As we become more dependent on the quality
and reliability of electrical power, interruption or
complete loss of power can create serious and
even crippling financial losses, or impose dangers to life and safety.
Automatic Switch Company (ASCO) provides
the solutions to handle the transfer of critical
loads to emergency sources reliably and with
state of the art products. Using ASCO products
can mean the difference between a minor inconvenience and a major catastrophe. You’ll find
ASCO Automatic Transfer Switches wherever
there is a critical load to be protected.
When flexibility in power switching is a must,
ASCO offers a variety of product solutions to
meet virtually every application requirement.
That’s why the 7000 Series is available in the
conventional, two-position transfer configuration, plus closed or delayed transition modes of
operation. Additionally, switched or overlapping
neutral options provide for reliable operation of
ground fault protection systems and reduction
of voltage transients from unbalanced load
switching.
ASCO automatic transfer switches are the first
CE Marked, IEC 60947-6-1 compliant and
Kema Keur marked Automatic Transfer Switch
in the world.

The Recognized Leader in Power Transfer Switch Technology
Offers the Most Advanced Automatic Transfer Switches in the World.
7000 Series
ASCO Automatic Transfer Switches are the
standard of the industry. High speed transfer of
loads between alternate sources of power, regardless of ampacity size, is achieved by a reliable,
field proven solenoid operating mechanism.
When combined with a programmable microprocessor controller with keypad and LCD
display, it offers the most advanced method of
transferring all types of loads, such as, motors,
electronic drives, UPS’s and microprocessor
based systems. It is the only true double throw,
inherently interlocked transfer switch in the
industry and is available in ampacity sizes
from 30 through 4000 amperes. 7000 Series
automatic transfer switches are available open or
enclosed, with the largest selection of optional
accessories offered anywhere.

Closed-Transition Transfer Switching
ASCO Automatic Closed-Transition Transfer Switches
feature main contacts that overlap, permitting the
transfer of electrical loads without power interruption.
The switch transfers in a make-before-break mode if
both sources are within acceptable parameters. Control
logic continuously monitors source conditions and automatically determines whether the load transfer should
be open (conventional non-overlap mode) or closed
transition. Available 150 through 4000 amperes.
Closed-Transition Transfer within 5 electrical degrees is
achieved passively. Active control of the engine generator is not required. Therefore, no additional control
wire runs are required between the ATS and engine generator set governor. Plus, protective relaying may not be
required under normal operation since the contact overlap time is less than 100 milliseconds (consult your local
utility on protective relay requirements).
Fig. 2
Closed-Transition Bypass Transfer Switch
rated 4 pole 800 amperes.
Failure to synchronize annunciation and extended parallel time protection is built-in to all 7000 Series closed
transition controls to prevent abnormal operation.
Delayed Transition Transfer Switching
ASCO Delayed Transition Transfer Switches are
designed to provide transfer of loads between power
sources with an intentional load disconnect position
for an adjustable period of time. Applications include
older style variable frequency drives, rectifier banks,
and specialized medical equipment.
• Available 150 through 4000 amperes.
• Utilizes reliable, field proven solenoid
operating mechanisms.
• Mechanical interlocks to prevent direct
connection of both sources.
• Indicator light (16mm, industrial grade
type LED) for load disconnect position.
• Adjustable time delay for load
disconnect position.

Non-Automatic Transfer Switching
ASCO Non-Automatic Transfer Switches are
electrically operated units which are operated with
manual control switches mounted locally or at
remote locations.
• Sizes from 30 through 4000 amperes.
• Microprocessor based controller
provides for addition of optional
accessories.
• Controller prevents inadvertent operation under low voltage conditions.
• Low
control circuit operating currents allow for long line runs
between remotely mounted manual
control switches and the transfer
switch.
• Source
acceptability lights inform
operator if sources are available to
accept load.

7000 Series Microprocessor Controller
The 7000 Series Microprocessor Based Controller is used with all sizes
of Automatic Transfer Switches from 30 through 4000 amperes. It
represents the most advanced digital based microprocessor control panel
in the industry and includes, as standard, all of the voltage, frequency,
control, timing and diagnostic functions required for most emergency and
standby power applications.
Because of severe voltage transients frequently encountered with
industrial distribution systems, the microprocessor logic board is
separated and isolated from the power board as shown below. This
improves electrical noise immunity performance and helps assure
compliance with the rigorous transient suppression standards highlighted
below.

7000 Series Transfer Control Center
The 7000 Series microprocessor controller is a Transfer Control Center
which allows the user to easily access detailed information on: system
status; power source parameters; voltage, frequency and time delay settings; optional feature settings; historical event log; and system diagnostics.
A four line, (20) character LCD has a backlit display which enables easy
viewing under all conditions. The user can navigate through all screens
using only six buttons, which also allows selection of: 18 different source
parameter settings; 16 standard time delays; 12 standard feature settings; up
to (7) independent engine exercise routines; and even the language
(English, German, Spanish, French, etc.) which appears on the display.
Since the Transfer Control Center must be visible and operable through the
enclosure door, it has been qualified for use in industrial and outdoor applications. This includes installation in Type 3R (raintight), 4 (weatherproof)
and 12 (oiltight and dusttight) enclosures.

Data Monitor
The ASCO PowerQuest Data Monitor is a microprocessor based metering device that provides
real-time measurements of single and three phase
power systems. The Data Monitor uses digital
signal processing technology to measure voltage
and current per phase; real, reactive and apparent
power, and bi-directional energy. All measurements are viewed locally with a backlit liquid
crystal display and can be displayed remotely with
ASCO PowerQuest products.
Direct voltage input for systems up to 600 Volts
AC can be monitored without the use of external
potential transformers (PTs). Measures 3 phase
currents and a fourth current input is available for
measuring current in the neutral conductor. The
Data Monitor includes one discrete input for transfer switch position, eight general purpose discrete
inputs, and four relay outputs for controlling or
monitoring external devices.
