SECTION 1
INSTALLATION
ASCO 4000 Series Automatic Delayed–Transition Transfer Switches are factory wired and tested. Field installation simply requires mounting and connection of service
cables, and auxiliary control circuits (if required).
should be tested to verify that they are not defective or
have been damaged during installation.
Remove the Shipping Skid
A Wiring Diagram is furnished with the ASCO 4000 Series
4ADTS (separate from this manual). Refer to this
drawing. All wiring must be made in accordance with the
National Electrical Code and local codes.
Connecting Power Conductors
For large switches, open the front door and remove the
four lag screws (2 in front, 2 in rear) securing enclosure to
the wood skid.
Supporting Foundation
The supporting foundation for the enclosure must level
and straight. Refer to the applicable enclosure outline
drawing included with the 4ADTS 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 enclosure outline drawing for specified 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
Refer to the outline and mounting diagram provided with
the ATS; it shows all mounting details and instructions.
After the power cables have been tested, connect them to
the appropriate terminal lugs on the transfer switch as
shown on the wiring diagram provided with the switch.
Make sure 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 switch. Be careful when
stripping insulation from the cables; avoid nicking or
ringing the conductor. Remove surface oxides from
cables by cleaning with a wire brush. When aluminum
cable is used, apply joint compound to conductors.
Tighten cable lugs to the torque specified on rating label.
Do not run cables in front of or behind the switch. Cables
can be bundled on the right side of the switch. Maintain
proper electrical clearance between the live metal parts
and grounded metal: ½ inch minimum for 150-400 amps,
1 inch minimum over 400 amps.
It is not necessary to remove the barriers from the
transfer switches to install the cables. If you do remove
them,however, be sure to reinstall the barriers carefully.
Protect the switch from construction grit
and metal chips to prevent malfunction or
shortened life of the automatic switch switch.
Bus Connections
Mount the ATS vertically to a rigid supporting structure.
Level all mounting points by using flat washers behind the
holes to avoid distortion of the switch.
The controller is mounted on the cabinet door. An addon DIN rail is provided for some optional accessories and
is mounted below controller on the door.
For large switches use grade 5 hardware to connect bus to
appropriate terminal plates. Wipe off the bus surfaces
before they are joined. If the bus is very dirty, gently clean
the surfaces with a non---flammable solvent. Avoid
touching the cleaned surfaces.
Tighten bolted joints to the torque specified in Table A.
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.
The reliability of the connection depends
on how clean and how tight the joint is.
Table A. Tightening torque values for bolted joints
(Grade 5 hardware)
Testing Power Conductors
Do not connect the power conductors to the transfer
switch 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
