We Keep Your Power On ®
Power Transfer Switches
Power Outage Protection
Where would you be without a constant
flow of electrical power? We often take for
granted that power will always be around
when we need it. In reality, power failures
are very common. And when the power
goes out, your business suffers. Power
failures are unpredictable. They can occur
at any time and for any number of reasons—
a bolt of lightning, a power surge, a
blackout, an accident or even equipment
failure. They come without warning and
often at the most inconvenient times.
It’s for this reason that many businesses
and other entities have invested in
emergency power backup systems.
Typically, the system consists of an engine
generator and an automatic transfer switch
(ATS) which transfers the load from the
utility to the generator.
An ATS with built-in control logic monitors
your normal power supply and senses any
interruptions. When the utility power fails,
the ATS automatically starts the engine and
transfers the load after the generator has
reached proper voltage and frequency. This
happens in a matter of seconds after the
power failure occurs. When the utility power
has been restored, the ATS will automatically
switch the load back, and after a time delay,
it will shut down the engine. With an
Automatic Transfer Switch, you are protected
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Series 300 Power Transfer Switches Typical Applications
Telecom
In the telecommunications industry, providing a high level of service and dependability is crucial.
Lost power means an interruption in service for your customers and lost business for your company.
For instance, with cell sites scattered across a wide geographical region and in many remote areas,
the chances of an interruption in power are increased, making Automatic Transfer Switches a
valuable resource at each location. To maintain dependable service, each cell site must be monitored
24 hours a day. This can be very difficult without some type of remote monitoring and testing
capability. The Series 300 Transfer Switch, combined with ASCO’s monitoring and control management
system, is a cost-effective, packaged solution which can help meet both of these challenging
objectives without a major investment at each cell site. With ASCO’s connectivity solutions you
can remotely monitor and control numerous sites from around the corner or around the world.
Commercial/Retail, Light Industrial
The retail industry is very competitive. An electrical power failure can have a dramatic impact on
a retailer’s bottom line. If power is interrupted during peak shopping times, the effect could be
extremely damaging to present and future business. A power interruption will not only suspend
shopping, it can also create safety problems, result in lost transaction data, lost account information
and damage to data collection equipment. In addition, retailers who rely on controlled climates
to protect valuable inventory could suffer even greater losses, especially if the power failure
occurs at a time when no one is available to rectify the situation. To avoid any of these power
outage problems, simply install a backup generator with an ASCO Series 300 Transfer Switch and
power outage concerns will be a thing of the past.
Municipal
The ASCO Series 300 Transfer Switch can be a critical component of a municipal government’s
emergency power backup system. Residents of townships, cities and counties rely on police,
fire, ambulance/first aid and other critical public sector services. An interruption in power would
affect the ability of emergency services to effectively respond to the needs of the community.
When time is a critical factor, such as when responding to a fire alarm or an emergency call, an
ASCO Series 300 Transfer Switch can be a lifesaver, switching power to the backup generator.
While not all municipal services are a matter of life and death, they are always expected to be
there.
Agriculture
Maintaining electrical power is vital to an agriculture operation. If the flow of power is interrupted,
your operation could be at risk unless the backup generator is quickly activated. A prolonged
power outage can affect numerous aspects of the operation, from housing and feeding livestock
to processing and producing the end product. With an ASCO Series 300 Transfer Switch, power
will automatically be transferred over to your backup generator, eliminating the need to manually
switch from utility to generator. When power is restored, the ASCO Series 300 Transfer Switch
will, after an adjustable time delay to allow for utility stabilization, automatically switch the load
back to the utility service.

Series 300 Power Transfer Switches
Maximum Reliability & Excellent Value
With a Series 300 Transfer Switch, you get a product backed by ASCO
Power Technologies, the industry leader responsible for virtually
every major technological advance in the Transfer Switch industry.
The ASCO Series 300 was designed for one purpose–to
automatically transfer critical loads in the event of a power
outage. Each and every standard component was designed
by ASCO engineers for this purpose.
The rugged construction and proven performance of the ASCO
Series 300 assure the user of many years of complete reliability.
The Series 300 is even designed to handle the extraordinary
demands placed on the switch when starting or restarting stalled
motors and switching high inrush loads.
ASCO’s Series 300 modular, compact design makes it easy to
install, inspect and maintain. All parts are accessible from the
front so switch contacts can be easily inspected.

Start-Up, Commissioning, Service
& Preventive Maintenance
ASCO Services, Inc., provides a wide range of technical services to users of automatic
transfer switches in emergency and standby power systems. These services include
comprehensive preventive maintenance programs, modifications, upgrades and emergency
repairs. Systems serviced range in complexity from a single automatic transfer switch to multiple
transfer switches and engine generators.
ASCO Services is a wholly owned subsidiary and the exclusive OEM service arm of ASCO Power
Technologies, the world’s largest manufacturer of power transfer switching and control equipment.
Serving the needs of ASCO’s customers is a major focus; however, ASCO Services is also
routinely called upon to perform regular maintenance and emergency repairs on equipment
manufactured by others.
ASCO Services offers comprehensive maintenance agreements that detail the preventive care
needed to keep emergency power systems ready to respond. A service agreement is an effective
way to budget in advance and avoid unexpected expenditures. A 35-point checklist is utilized to
assure critical systems and components are kept in top operating condition. These preventive
programs can be customized for national accounts.
This customization permits central corporate
control of costs and scheduling. Periodic
reports provide detailed information
as to activity, maintenance performed
and corrective action.
ASCO Services deploys more than
75 service personnel strategically
located throughout the nation to provide
24-hour response in emergency situations. Each region is manned by experienced personnel who
receive ongoing support and training in the newest equipment concepts, design and controls.
Because equipment can be utilized for a long number of years, field representatives also receive
education on older designs. This knowledge can be invaluable in addressing total system
concerns, evaluating problems and providing solutions on site. Service vans are equipped with
parts and advanced testing equipment that facilitate these on-the-spot repairs.
