PART 3- OPERATION
3.01
OPEN TRANSITION SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
A.
Transfer switch normally connects an energized utility power source (source 1) to loads
and a generator set (source 2) to the loads when normal source fails. The normal
position of the transfer switch is source 1 (connected to the utility), and no start signal is
supplied to the genset.
B.
Generator Set Exercise (Test) With Load Mode. The control system shall be configurable
to test the generator set under load. In this mode, the transfer switch shall control the
generator set in the following sequence:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
C.
Transfer switch shall initiate the exercise sequence at a time indicated in the
exercise timer program, or when manually initiated by the operator.
The transfer switch shall issue a compatible start command to the generator set,
and cause the generator set to start and run at idle until it has reached normal
operating temperature.
When the generator set has reached normal operating temperature or after an
adjustable time period (whichever is shorter), the control system shall accelerate
the generator set to rated voltage and frequency.
When the control systems senses the generator set at rated voltage and
frequency, it shall operate to connect the loads to the generator set by opening
the normal source contacts, and closing the alternate source contacts a
predetermined time period later. The timing sequence for the contact operation
shall be programmable in the controller.
The generator set shall operate connected to the load for the duration of the
exercise period. If the generator set fails during this period, the transfer switch
shall automatically reconnect the generator set to the normal service.
On completion of the exercise period, the transfer switch shall operate to connect
the loads to the normal source by opening the alternate source contacts, and
closing the normal source contacts a predetermined time period later. The timing
sequence for the contact operation shall be programmable in the controller.
The transfer switch shall operate the generator set unloaded for a cooldown
period, and then remove the start signal from the generator set. If the normal
power fails at any time when the generator set is running, the transfer switch shall
immediately connect the system loads to the generator set.
Generator Set Exercise (Test) Without Load Mode. The control system shall be
configurable to test the generator set without transfer switch load connected. In this
mode, the transfer switch shall control the generator set in the following sequence:
1.
Transfer switch shall initiate the exercise sequence at a time indicated in the

exercise timer program, or when manually initiated by the operator.
The transfer switch shall issue a compatible start command to the generator set,
and cause the generator set to start and run at idle until it has reached normal
operating temperature.
When the generator set has reached normal operating temperature or after an
adjustable time period (whichever is shorter), the control system shall accelerate
the generator set to rated voltage and frequency.
When the control systems senses the generator set at rated voltage and
frequency, it shall operate the generator set unloaded for the duration of the
exercise period.
At the completion of the exercise period, the transfer switch shall remove the start
signal from the generator set. If the normal power fails at any time when the
generator set is running, the transfer switch shall immediately connect the system
loads to the generator set.

provide the ability to designate a card reader to be used as a "clock in" or "clock out"
reader The resulting access traffic through the time and attendance reader shall be

associated card number and cardholder and generate an alarm on future access
attempts.
The user shall be able to create badge records either through the use of direct input into
the badge record, mass creation through badge enrollment, bulk badge creation by
defining credential number range, or via an import feature. Each badge record shall be

immediately upon completion of the change. Changes of access privileges shall affect
only the modified record, and shall not require a download of the entire cardholder
database
G.
The user with proper authorization shall be able to initiate the call-up of a cardholder
record. This feature shall be provided via browser to assist the user in determining
access rights for an employee who may have forgotten his or her badge. Utilizing a

EACIS shall access the employee's personnel file, and containing pertinent information
for identification by the user. This operation shall not restrict the operation of monitoring
alarms.
