Description
ASCO 4000 & 7000 Series Automatic Transfer Switch
products utilize the Group 5 Controller for sensing,
timing, and control functions. This state–of–the art
microprocessor–based controller includes a built–in
keypad and a four–line LCD display. All monitoring and
control functions can be done with the enclosure door
closed for greater convenience. In addition, all changes
in voltage settings (except for nominal voltage) and time
delays can be made through a system of menus.

Voltage & Frequency Settings
Unless otherwise specified on the order, the controller voltage and frequency
settings are set at the factory to the default values. If a setting must be changed,
carefully follow the procedure on the next page. Some settings may require a
password (if the controller is set up for one).
Any indiscriminate change in these settings may affect the normal
operation of the Automatic Transfer Switch. This change could allow
the load circuits to remain connected to an inadequate source.

The controller (CP) Features settings can be displayed and changed from the keypad. Some settings may require a password (if the controller is set up for one).
This display appears only for 4ACTS, 4ADTS, 7ACTS, 7ACTB, 7ADTS, or
7ADTB. It determines switch position after the shed load transfer.
IsoLoadOnSrcFail — determines switch position during a source failure.
IsoLoadOnTest17 — deterines switch position during feature 17 activation.
Yes — Load is not connected to either source.
(see wiring diagram
No — Load is connected to the opposite source. for feature 17 desc.)
This display shows status of phase rotation monitor and desired reference
phase rotation. It only appears if both sources are set to 3–phase sensing.
Enabled — Yes means phase rotation is considered as part of the
source acceptability criteria for each source. If the phase rotation of the
source does not match the reference phase rotation, that source is considered
unacceptable. If phase rotation of the two sources is different, the load will
be transferred to the source with the reference phase rotation.
Reference — phase rotation order: ABC or CBA (ABC is default)
This display appears only for 4ATS, 7ATS or 7ATB. This display shows status
of in–phase monitor and in–phase time delay (1.5 seconds is default setting).
Enabled — Yes means in–phase transfer is initiated when any of these
conditions are met: Transfer Test (Feature 5) signal, connected source fails,
retransfer to acceptable Normal occurs and Emergency source acceptable.
CTTS Bypass / Shed Load (not shown)see page 2–1

This display shows status of the closed–transition bypass options.
FailSyncAutoBypass — Yes means if the fail to sync alarm occurs, the controller
will bypass the closed–transition mode and will make a delayed–transiton
transfer. The load disconnect time is set by the Bypass DT Delay parameter.
Bypass InPhase — Yes means the inphase monitor is active during load transfer.
Settings 2---8
Y – Y Primary Failure Detection (not shown)

This display shows status of a special control algorithm which is described in
Application Note 381339–276.
Enable – Yes means the algorithm is activated to detect Normal primary single
phase failure in Y–Y systems.
Sense Delay — 1 second default time delay.
TD E>N Y–Y — 1 hour default time delay.
Note: This function should only be considered for use where the Normal source
is provided through a Y–Y transformer. This function requires the Normal
source voltage unbalance monitoring to be enabled.

Normal Source Failure. The Normal source is considered unacceptable when any one
of six voltage, frequency, or phase rotation conditions occur (see page 3–1).

Acceptable
Transfer Test Signal. Test transfer signal can be from the Transfer Control switch
(Feature 5), the engine–generator exerciser clock (Feature 11C), or via the serial port
(Feature 72A). When using the Transfer Control switch, it must be held in the Transfer Test
position until the emergency source becomes available (within 15 seconds).
The controller begins the load transfer sequence by de–energizing the SE relay and
starting the Feature 1C time delay. Feature 1C time delay on engine starting prevents
nuisance starting of the engine–generator set and load transfer to emergency due to
momentary failures of the normal source. If the normal source is restored (voltage returns
above the dropout point) while Feature 1C time delay is running, the SE relay is
re–energized and the transfer sequence is terminated. (For transfer test the Feature 1C
time delay is bypassed.)
Engine Start Signal. When the Feature 1C time delay ends, the controller de–energizes
the NR relay which signals the engine–generator to start. The controller monitors the
emergency source, waiting for it to become acceptable. Usually about 10 seconds elapse
from dropout of the NR relay to acceptance of the emergency source. This interval occurs
because the engine–generator must crank, start, and run up to nominal pickup points. If
the emergency source is available immediately, the controller will accept it as soon as the
NR relay drops out.

When the emergency source becomes acceptable, the controller starts the Feature 2B time
delay on transfer to emergency (if desired). Feature 2B time delay allows the emergency
source to stabilize before load transfer. If the emergency source fails while Feature 2B time
delay is running, the controller again waits for the emergency source to become acceptable
again and restarts Feature 2B.
At the conclusion of the Feature 2B time delay, the controller is ready to transfer the load
to emergency. If enabled, Feature 31F time delay will run prior to transfer and the Feature
31 output will be active while the time delay runs. Also, if Feature 27 inphase monitor
control (for motor loads) is enabled, the controller will inhibit transfer until the sources
are in phase.
Load Transfer. To transfer the load to the emergency source the controller energizes ER
relay. The transfer switch TS coil energizes, and all transfer switch contacts (mains,
controls, auxiliaries) reverse position. Transfer switch is now supplying the load from
emergency source.
If enabled, Feature 31M time delay will run after the transfer and the Feature 31

Normal Source Restoration. The Normal source is considered acceptable again when
all six voltage, frequency, or phase rotation conditions occur (see page 3–1).
Cancel Transfer Test. Removal of the test transfer signal can be by the Transfer Control

normal source again to become acceptable and restarts the Feature 3A time delay. If the
emergency source fails while Feature 3A is running, the controller bypasses the time delay
for immediately load retransfer. To bypass Feature 3A time delay, turn the Transfer
Control switch to the Retransfer Delay Bypass position.
At the conclusion of the Feature 3A time delay, the controller is ready to transfer the load
to normal. If Feature 27 inphase monitor control is enabled, the controller will inhibit

supplying the load from the normal source again
Engine Cooldown & Stop. After load retransfer to the normal source, the controller
starts Feature 2E time delay. Feature 2E time delay provides an unloaded cooldown
running period for the engine–generator. At the end of the time delay, the controller
energizes the NR relay and the engine–generator is signalled to shutdown.
Description of Operation

Closed–Transition Automatic Transfer (4ACTS, 7ACTS, 7ACTB)
The 4ACTS, 7ACTS, and 7ACTB provides load transfer in either closed (make–before–break) or open (break–before–make) transition modes depending upon the condition
of the two power sources. Control logic automatically determines whether the load transfer should be open or closed transition. If both sources are acceptable, such as during a
transfer test or when retransferring back to Normal, closed–transition transfer occurs
without interrupting the electrical loads. If either source is not present, such as when normal fails, open–transition load transfer occurs in the break–before–make mode.
Open–Transition Load Transfer to Emergency Source
due to Normal Source Failure
The sequence for open–transition load transfer to the emergency source begins
automatically when the controller detects an unacceptable normal source. The Normal
source is considered unacceptable when any one of six voltage, frequency, or phase
rotation abnormal conditions occur (see page 3–1).
NORMAL FAILED
Normal Source Failure. An under voltage condition on any phase of the normal source
means that the voltage has fallen below the preset dropout point.
The controller begins the load transfer sequence by de–energizing the SE and SE2 relays
and starting the Feature 1C time delay. Feature 1C time delay on engine starting prevents
nuisance starting of the engine–generator set and load transfer to emergency due to
momentary failures of the normal source. If the normal source is restored (voltage returns
above the dropout point) while Feature 1C time delay is running, the SE and SE2 relays
are re–energized and the transfer sequence is terminated. (For transfer test the Feature
1C time delay is bypassed.)
Engine Start Signal. When the Feature 1C time delay ends, the controller de–energizes
the NR relay which signals the engine–generator to start. The controller monitors the
emergency source, waiting for it to become acceptable. Both voltage and frequency must
reach preset pickup points before the emergency source is accepted. Usually about 10
seconds elapse from dropout of the NR relay to acceptance of the emergency source. This
interval occurs because the engine–generator must crank, start, and run up to nominal
pickup points. If the emergency source is available immediately, the controller will accept
it as soon as the NR relay drops out.
When the emergency source becomes acceptable, the controller starts the Feature 2B time
delay on transfer to emergency (if desired). If the emergency source fails while Feature 2B
time delay is running, the controller again waits for the emergency source to become
acceptable again and restarts Feature 2B.
At the conclusion of the Feature 2B time delay, the controller is ready to transfer the load
to emergency. If enabled, Feature 31F time delay will run prior to transfer and the Feature
31F output will be active while the time delay runs.
TEST MODE
TEST CIRCUIT 5
Load on Emerg
Load Transfer. To transfer the load to the emergency source the controller energizes the
ER relay. The transfer switch CN coil energizes, and all CN transfer switch contacts
(mains, controls, auxiliaries) reverse position to disconnect the Normal source. Then the
controller energizes the ER2 relay. The transfer switch CE coil energizes, and all CE
transfer switch contacts (mains, controls, auxiliaries) reverse position to connect the
Emergency source. The transfer switch is now supplying the load from emergency source.
If enabled, Feature 31M time delay will run after the transfer and the Feature 31M output
will be active while the time delay runs.

(Feature 5), the engine–generator exerciser clock (Feature 11C), or via the serial port
(Feature 72A). When using the Transfer Control switch, it must be held in the Transfer Test
position until the emergency source becomes available (within 15 seconds).
The controller begins the load transfer sequence by de–energizing the SE, SE2, and NR
relays. Feature 1C engine starting time delay is bypassed during transfer test.
Engine Start Signal. When the NR relay de–energizes it signals the engine–generator
to start. The controller monitors the emergency source, waiting for it to become
acceptable. Both voltage and frequency must reach preset pickup points before the
emergency source is accepted. Usually about 10 seconds elapse from dropout of the NR
relay to acceptance of the emergency source. This interval occurs because the
engine–generator must crank, start, and run up to nominal pickup points. If the emergency
source is available immediately, the controller will accept it as soon as the NR relay drops
out.
When the emergency source becomes acceptable, the controller starts the Feature 2B time
delay on transfer to emergency (if desired). If the emergency source fails while Feature 2B
time delay is running, the controller again waits for the emergency source to become
acceptable again and restarts Feature 2B.
TEST MODE
TEST CIRCUIT 5
Load on Emerg
At the conclusion of the Feature 2B time delay, the controller starts the synchronization
time delay which allows both sources to stabilize. After the synchronization time delay,
the controller starts the in–sync monitor. Three criteria must be met for the sources to be
considered in–sync. The phase difference between the sources must be less than 5 degrees,
the frequency difference must be less than 0.2 Hz, and the voltage difference must be less
than 5%. These parameters are displayed. The controller waits for the sources to become
in–sync. At the same time, the failure to sync time delay is running. If the failure to sync
time exceeds the user selected time, the failure to sync output is activated and remains
active until it is reset via the alarm reset. The controller continues the transfer sequence
even after the failure to synchronize alarm becomes active.
When the sources become in–sync the controller is ready to transfer the load to emergency.
Load Transfer. To transfer the load to the emergency source the controller energizes the
ER2 relay. The transfer switch CE coil energizes, and all CE transfer switch contacts
(mains, controls, auxiliaries) reverse position. The load is connected to both the Normal
and Emergency sources. The extended parallel time delay is started and the controller
energizes the ER relay. The transfer switch CN coil energizes, and all CN transfer switch
contacts (mains, control, auxiliaries) reverse position to disconnect the Normal source.
The load is now only connected to the Emergency source. If the sources are paralleled
longer than the extended parallel time setting the controller activates an extended parallel
output. It also deenergizes the ER and ER2 relays, energizes the SE and SE2 relays, and
it locks out any further transfer operations. This lock–out condition is reset via the alarm
reset.

Normal Source Restoration. The Normal source is considered acceptable again when
all six voltage, frequency, or phase rotation conditions occur (see page 3–1).
Cancel Transfer Test. Removal of the test transfer signal can be by the Transfer Control
switch (Feature 5), engine–generator exerciser clock (Feature 11C), or via serial port
(Feature 72A). When using the Transfer Control switch, it must be released from the
Transfer Test position.
The controller begins the load retransfer sequence by starting the Feature 3A time delay.
Feature 3A time delay on retransfer to normal allows the normal source to stabilize. If the
normal source fails while the Feature 3A time delay is running, the controller waits for the
normal source again to become acceptable and restarts the Feature 3A time delay. If the
emergency source fails during while Feature 3A is running, the controller bypasses the
time delay for immediately load retransfer. To bypass Feature 3A time delay, turn the
Transfer Control switch to the Retransfer Delay Bypass position.
At the conclusion of the Feature 3A time delay, the controller starts the synchronization
time delay which allows both sources to stabilize. After the synchronization time delay the
controller starts the in–sync monitor and the failure to sync time delay. When the sources
become in–sync the controller is ready to transfer the load to normal.

connect the Normal source. The load is now connected to both sources. The extended
parallel time delay is started and the SE2 relay is energized. The transfer switch CE coil
energizes, and all CE transfer switch contacts (mains, controls, auxiliaries) reverse
position to disconnect the Emergency source. The transfer switch is now supplying the load
from the normal source again. If the sources are paralleled longer than the extended
parallel time setting the controller activates an extended parallel output. It also
deenergizes the SE and SE2 relays, energizes the ER and ER2 relays, and it locks out any
further transfer operations. This lock–out condition is reset via the alarm reset.
Engine Cooldown & Stop. After load retransfer to the normal source, the controller
starts Feature 2E time delay. Feature 2E time delay provides an unloaded cooldown
running period for the engine–generator. At the end of the time delay, the controller
energizes the NR relay and the engine–generator is signalled to shutdown.
Bypass Closed–Transition Load Transfer
A pending closed–transition load transfer can be bypassed by using the Closed Transition
Bypass switch. Depending upon the configuration of the controller, bypassing the
closed–transition load transfer sequence will result in either an open or delayed–
transition transfer.

position until the emergency source becomes available (within 15 seconds).
The controller begins the load transfer sequence by de–energizing the SE and SE2 relays
and starting the Feature 1C time delay. Feature 1C time delay on engine starting prevents
nuisance starting of the engine–generator set and load transfer to emergency due to
momentary failures of the normal source. If the normal source is restored (voltage returns
above the dropout point) while Feature 1C time delay is running, the SE and SE2 relays
are re–energized and the transfer sequence is terminated. (For transfer test the Feature
1C time delay is bypassed.)
Engine Start Signal. When the Feature 1C time delay ends, the controller de–energizes
the NR relay which signals the engine–generator to start. The controller monitors the
emergency source, waiting for it to become acceptable. Both voltage and frequency must
reach preset pickup points before the emergency source is accepted. Usually about 10
seconds elapse from dropout of the NR relay to acceptance of the emergency source. This
interval occurs because the engine–generator must crank, start, and run up to nominal

it as soon as the NR relay drops out.
When the emergency source becomes acceptable, the controller starts the Feature 2B time

source to stabilize before load transfer. If the emergency source fails while Feature 2B time
delay is running, the controller again waits for the emergency source to become acceptable
again and restarts Feature 2B.
At the conclusion of the Feature 2B time delay, the controller is ready to transfer the load
