SECTION 1
INSTALLATION
The ASCO 7000 Series Automatic Closed–Transition
Transfer & Bypass–Isolation Switch (ACTB) consists of
an upper bypass–isolation switch, a transfer switch, a
monitoring and transfer controller, and door–mounted
controls. The ACTB is factory wired and tested.
Installation requires removal of the shipping skid then
securing the enclosure to the supporting foundation.
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.
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 ACTB 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.
Figure 1-1. Typical enclosure,
Mounting
Refer to the enclosure outline drawing furnished with
this switch and mount the 7000 Series ACTB according to
the details and instructions shown on the drawing.
Remove three Shipping Angles
from the Transfer Switch
Open the lower front door. The Transfer Switch carriage
is secured to the frame for shipment. Remove the three
shipping angle (1 upper left, 1 upper right, 1 lower right).
To prevent serious damage, remove three
shipping angles from the Transfer Switch
carriage. Do not turn the Isolation Handle
until they are removed!
Figure 1-2. Remove three shipping L–angles.

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 ACTB 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.
Table 2-1. Tightening torque values for bolted joints.

Protect the switch from construction grit
and metal chips to prevent malfunction or
shortened life of the ACTB switch.
Connecting Power Conductors
A Wiring Diagram is furnished with the ACTB. 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 ACTB. 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 ACTB. 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.
Be sure that the Normal and Emergency power
connections are in proper phase rotation.
Engine Starting Contacts
and Auxiliary Circuits
The engine control contact signal connections and
auxiliary circuits are located on terminal block TB as
shown on the Wiring Diagram provided with the ACTB.
Connect the signal wires to the appropriate terminals.
