General Information
1.1
Introduction
This manual has been prepared especially for the purpose of familiarizing personnel with the design, application, installation, operation and servicing of the applicable equipment. Read the manual
carefully and comply with all instructions. This will help to prevent
accidents or damage to equipment that might otherwise be caused
by carelessness, incorrect application or improper procedures.
This UL listed transfer switch is for use in optional standby systems only (NEC article 702).
This transfer switch is suitable for use on a circuit capable of
18,000 rms symmetrical amperes, 240 VAC maximum.
Figure 1.1 — Typical ATS Transfer Mechanism
Every effort has been expended to make sure that the contents
of this manual are both accurate and current. The manufacturer,
however, reserves the right to change, alter or otherwise improve
the product at any time without prior notice.
1.2unpacking
Carefully unpack the transfer switch. Inspect closely for any damage that might have occurred during shipment. The purchaser must
file with the carrier any claims for loss or damage incurred while in
transit.
Check that all packing material is completely removed from the
switch prior to installation.
1.3equipment description
The automatic transfer switch is used for transferring electrical
load from a utility (Normal) power source to a GENERATOR
(Standby) power source. Such a transfer of electrical loads
occurs automatically when the UTILITY power source has failed or
is substantially reduced and the GENERATOR source voltage and
frequency have reached an acceptable level. The transfer switch
prevents electrical feedback between two different power sources
(such as the UTILITY and GENERATOR sources) and, for that reason, codes require it in all standby electric system installations.
The transfer switch consists of a transfer mechanism, UTILITY
service disconnect circuit breaker, a relay control, fuses, terminal strip, and fuse holder for connection of sensing wires.
This transfer switch is suitable for use as service equipment.
1.3.1 transfer switch mechanism
These switches (Figure 1.1) are used with a single-phase system,
when the single-phase NEUTRAL line is to be connected to a
Neutral Lug and is not to be switched.
Solderless, screw-type terminal lugs are standard.

This transfer switch is suitable for control of motors, electric discharge lamps, tungsten filament and electric heating equipment
where the sum of motor full load ampere ratings and the ampere
ratings of other loads do not exceed the ampere rating of the
switch and the tungsten load does not exceed 30 percent of the
switch rating.

The conductor tightening torque is 375 in-lbs.
1.3.3 Load Shed Module (LSM)
The Load Shed module is designed to prevent an overload on the
generator when it is supplying the customer loads (see Figure
1.2). Up to six loads can be managed by the LSM; 2 air conditioner loads and 4 other loads. The LSM manages the loads by
“shedding” the connected loads in the event of a drop in generator
frequency (overload). Loads to be “shed” are grouped in 4 priority
levels on the LSM.
• Priority 1 and 2 has connections for both one air conditioner
and one contactor. Both an air conditioner and a contactor
can be used at the same time if desired. To control an air
conditioner, no additional equipment is required. Internal relays
interrupt the thermostat 24VAC control signal to disable the air
conditioner load.
• Priority 3 and 4 have connections for one contactor only.
• Four LEDs, located on the load shed module, will indicate when
a load priority level is enabled.
Installation
• Any loads, including central air conditioners, can be controlled
via a contactor that must be purchased separately. Up to four
contactors can be controlled by the load shed module. The LSM
supplies the 120 Vac to energize each contactor coil.
• Generator overload condition is determined by generator frequency. Loads are shed when the frequency is <58Hz for 3
seconds or <50Hz for ½ Second (For 60Hz).
The LSM has a Test button which forces the unit to act as if an
overload has occurred. This button operates even when the transfer signal is inactive.

Installation
This transfer switch is mounted in a UL type 3R enclosure. It can
be mounted outside or inside and should be based on the layout
of installation, convenience and proximity to the utility supply and
load center.
Install the transfer switch as close as possible to the electrical
loads that are to be connected to it. Mount the switch vertically to
a rigid supporting structure. To prevent switch distortion, level all
mounting points. If necessary, use washers behind mounting holes
to level the unit.
2.3connecting power source
and load lines
+ (Normal) and GENERATOR ( Standby)
Make sure to turn OFF both the UTILITY
power supplies before trying to connect power
source and load lines to the transfer switch.
Supply voltages are extremely high and dangerous. Contact with such high voltage power
supply lines causes extremely hazardous, possibly lethal, electrical shock.
Wiring diagrams and electrical schematics are provided in this
manual.
NOTE:
All installations must comply with national, state and local
codes. It is the responsibility of the installer to perform an
installation that will pass the final electrical inspection.
The utility supply connection is made at the utility service disconnect circuit breaker terminals. The generator and customer
load connections are made at the transfer switch mechanism,
inside the switch enclosure.
Conductor sizes must be adequate to handle the maximum current to which they will be subjected, based on the 75°C column of
tables, charts, etc. used to size conductors. The installation must
comply fully with all applicable codes, standards and regulations.
All power cables must enter the enclosure through the knockouts
provided. If not using the knockouts, conduit entry into the enclosure must be at or below knockouts to maintain the Type 3R rating.
Conduits should be arranged to provide separation between the
Utility and Generator supply conductors inside the enclosure.
Before connecting wiring cables to terminals, remove any surface
oxides from the cable ends with a wire brush. If not using the
knockouts, entry must be at or below knockouts. If ALUMINUM
conductors are used, apply corrosion inhibitor to conductors.
Tighten terminal lugs to the torque values as noted on Utility
Service Disconnect Circuit Breaker, and on the decal located on
the inside of the door. After tightening terminal lugs, carefully wipe
away any excess corrosion inhibitor.

se a torque wrench to tighten the conductors,
sure not to overtighten, or damage to
‹Ubeing
the switch base could occur. If not tightened
enough, a loose connection would result,
causing excess heat which could damage the
switch base.
Connect power source load conductors to clearly marked transfer
mechanism terminal lugs as follows:
1.
Connect UTILITY (NORMAL) power source cables to UTILITY
SERVICE DISCONNECT circuit breaker.
2. Connect the GENERATOR (STANDBY) source power cables to
transfer switch terminals E1, E2.
3. Connect customer LOAD leads to switch terminals T1, T2.
Conductors must be properly supported, of approved insulative
qualities, protected by approved conduit, and of the correct wire
gauge size in accordance with applicable codes.
Be sure to maintain proper electrical clearance between live metal
parts and grounded metal. Allow at least 1/2 inch for 100-400
amp circuits.
2.4connecting start circuit
wires
Control system interconnections consist of N1, N2, and T1, and
leads 0, 23 and 194. Recommended wire gauge sizes for this
wiring depends on the length of the wire, as recommended in the
following chart:
MAX WIRE LENGTH
RECOMMENDED WIRE SIZE
460 feet (140m)
No. 18 AWG.
461 to 730 feet (223m)
No. 16 AWG.
731 to 1,160 feet (354m)
No. 14 AWG.
1,161 to 1,850 feet (565m)
No. 12 AWG.
Exceptions: If the insulation rating on all wiring is rated for 600V,
and the length of the conduit is 30 feet or less, it is acceptable to
include generator control and power wiring in one conduit.
2.5auxiliary contacts
If desired, there are Auxiliary Contacts on the transfer switch to
operate customer accessories, remote advisory lights, or remote
annunciator devices. A suitable power source must be connected
to the COMMON (C) terminal. See Figure 2.1.

The LSM can control an air conditioner (24 Vac) directly or a separate contactor (120 Vac) which can control any load connected to
it. See Figure 2.2.
Figure 2.1 – Auxiliary Contacts
2.6.1 Sequence of Operation
The 4 green status LEDs will indicate when a load priority level is
enabled.
• All loads are enabled when the transfer signal is off. (ATS in
Utility position).
• If the transfer signal is pulled low (Active)
• All loads are enabled until an overload is detected
• When an overload is detected all loads are disabled
• After 5 minutes priority 1 loads are enabled.
• After another 30 seconds priority 2 loads are enabled
• After another 30 seconds priority 3 loads are enabled
• After another 30 seconds priority 4 loads are enabled
If an overload is detected within 30 seconds of a level being
enabled, all loads are disabled again and the sequence repeats.
However, the level that caused the overload and all levels higher
will not be enabled again for 30 minutes.

• T urn ON electrical loads to the full rated wattage/amperage
capacity of the generator. DO NOT OVERLOAD.
• With maximum rated load applied, check voltage and frequency
across transfer switch terminals E1 and E2. Voltage should be
greater than 230VAC and frequency should be greater than 59
Hertz.
• Let the generator run under rated load for at least 30 minutes.
With unit running, listen for unusual noises, vibration, overheating, etc., that might indicate a problem.
When checkout under load is complete, turn the generator's
main circuit breaker to its OFF or OPEN position.
7. Let the generator run at no-load for several minutes. Then,
shut down by setting the Auto/Off/Manual switch to its
OFF position.
8. Move the transfer switch's main contacts back to their utility position. For example, load connected to utility power
supply. Refer to "Manual Operation". Handle and operating
