General Description
Mechanical Component Identification
CSA Standard C22.2 No. 178-1978 defines an automatic transfer
switch as, “self acting equipment for transferring one or more load
conductor connections from one power source to another.” The same
Standard also gives definitions for type A and type B automatic transfer
switches. “Transfer” switch type A means an automatic transfer switch
that does not employ integral overcurrent devices.” “Transfer switch,
type B means an automatic transfer switch that (does) employ integral
overcurrent protection”. Westinghouse Robonics in type A are
equipped with special instantaneous magnetic only interrupter. The trip
settings of these special interrupter are set (and fixed) at higher than
standard values. They are intended to trip only if the upstream
protective device fails to clear a fault. Incorporating these special
magnetic only interrupter, a type A Robonic operates in exactly the
same way as a transfer switch not having this feature. In the event that
both devices trip, the Robonics control circuitry will automatically
initiate transfer to the alternate source. The transfer operation will reset
the “tripped” magnetic only interrupter. Information on instantaneous
trip value, interrupting, closing and withstand ratings, and recommendations for maximum upstream protective devices for type A Robonics,
are given in tables 1, 2, 3 on page 7. The information given in these
tables is necessary for proper application. Type B “Robonics” are
equipped with standard thermal-magnetic breakers which will provide
the required overload and short circuit protection. Type B Robonics can
also be built using Seltronic or SCB breakers which could include
ground fault tripping as well as overload and short circuit protection.
For application information or assistance with type B Robonics, refer to
Westinghouse.
The Robonic II provides automatic transfer of an electrical load to a
stand-by power supply in the event of drop or loss of voltage of any or
all phases of the normal power supply. Upon the restoration of the
normal supply, the electrical load is automatically re-transferred to the
normal power supply.
The transfer motor utilizes the power from the source to which the
electrical load is being transferred. The mechanism is also designed to
leave both breakers trip free in the closed position, permitting incorporation of the thermal and short-circuit protection in either or both
breakers. In the higher ampacity models, type RO and PRO, an alarm
switch contact is supplied. This contact is connected in the transfer
motor circuit to lock the motor circuit out of operation when the
breaker(s) trip on an overload or short-circuit condition. Then the
breaker has to be manually reset. Instructions for the reset procedure
are located on the front of the operating mechanism.
Type RO
All of the control modules are plug-in units which are easily replaced.
Type LRO

Page 5
Solid State Logic Control Panel
Type LRO Robonic II Automatic Transfer Switch
Rated 30 amperes through 100 amperes at 600 volts Ac maximum 50
or 60 Hertz.
The mechanism is a lever operated device controlled by a 120 volt
unidirectional motor.
Emergency
Normal
The transfer motor drives a nylon cam which in turn operates a steel
lever by sliding a pin along a slot in the back of the lever. The lever, in
turn, operates the two breaker handles. The distance travelled is
determined by two projections on the cam. These projections operate
two micro switches (NLS, ELS) which in turn disconnect the power to
the transfer motor causing a brake to operate.
The type LRO has three operating positions. They are the normal
breaker closed and the emergency breaker open, the emergency
breaker closed and the normal breaker open or both the normal and
emergency breakers open but never both normal and emergency
breakers closed.
The type LRO can also be easily manually operated. Open the lever
cover, remove the slide pin and place it in the hole supplied in the lever
cover and close the cover. Then the lever can be manually operated for
what ever position desired without interference by the automatic
control. For automatic control again, simply align the lever slot with the
hole in the operating cam and replace the slide pin.
The various automatic control components are described under the
section titled “Logic Control”.

The transfer motor drives the centre gear which in turn operates the
two secondary gears. There is a projection in the secondary gears
which slides in a groove in the operating cams moving the cams from
side to side. The breaker handles are set inside two outer guides of the
cam and are also moved from side to side. There are two micro
switches (NLS, ELS) inside the breakers which are operated by the
breaker’s main contacts to disconnect the transfer motor power supply
and allow the brake to operate.
The transfer motor drives a centre gear which in turn drives two inner
secondary gears. These two inner gears then drive larger, outer
secondary gears. There are projections from these outer secondary
gears which slide in a groove at the back of each operating cams
moving the cam up and down. The breaker handles are set inside two
outer guides on the cams, moving up and down with the cams. There
are two micro switches (NLS, ELS) inside the breakers which are
operated by the breaker’s main contacts to disconnect the transfer
motor power supply and allow the brake to operate.
The type “RO” transfer switch has three operating positions, the normal
breaker closed and the emergency breaker open, the emergency
breaker closed and the normal breaker open or both the normal and
the emergency breakers open but never both the normal and emergency breakers closed at the same time.
The type “PRO” transfer switch has three operating positions, the normal
breaker closed and the emergency breaker open, the emergency
breaker closed and the normal breaker open or both the normal and
emergency breakers closed at the same time.
The type “RO” Robonic II Transfer Switch is also easy to operate
manually. Simply remove the transfer motor fuse and turn the black
handle on the front of the transfer mechanism in a counter clockwise
direction until you hear the breakers operated and the indicator is in the
desired position. There will be no interference from the solid state
control. For automatic control again, replace the transfer motor fuse
and the Robonic II transfer switch will seek the power available.
The type “PRO” Robonic II Automatic Transfer Switch is also easy to
operate manually. Simply remove the transfer motor fuse and turn the
black handle on the front of the transfer mechanism in a counter-clockwise
direction until you hear the breakers operated and the colour indicator
shows the desired position. For automatic control again, replace the
transfer motor fuse and the Robonic II Transfer switch will seek the
power available.

Since type A Robonics employ magnetic only breakers, their interrupting, closing and withstand ratings are the same value. Under fault
conditions, with it’s “normal” breaker closed, a Robonic is required to
withstand the energy let through of the normal service protective
device while the fault is being cleared. At the same time, should the
normal voltage fall below the voltage sensing relay’s selected value, and if the alternate source were available, the Robonic could transfer
before the normal service protective device cleared the fault.
This would require that the Robonic be capable of interrupting the
protective device’s let through current. In addition, the Robonic could
be required to close in on a fault. Thus can be seen the need for
Robonics to have, interrupting, closing and withstand ratings.
The interrupting, closing and withstand ratings shown in Table 1 are
those for standard type A Robonics. For higher values, consideration
can be given to use of Robonics built with Mark 75, Tri-Pac or SCB
breakers.

Adjustments
Timer and frequency modules can be adjusted as per module front
plate. Voltage sensing modules can be adjusted as follows:
The relay is incorporated in the control scheme to stop the transfer
switch with both breakers open. This is to allow residual load voltage
to decay prior to closing on another supply which could be out of
phase. When the timing cycle is complete, the relay re-initiates transfer
to the available source.

This time delay relay is an octual plug-in, sychronous motor type. It is
complete with clutch and mechanical load switch giving one instantaneously operated normally open contact and a timed single pole double
throw contact in a dust-tight grey capsule. The mechanism is constructed to operate for the time set on the indicating dial and then
disconnect itself when the timing cycle is complete. A red pilot light on
the face plate indicates that the relay is timing to operate its contacts.
When de-energized, the relay requires a reset time of at least 0.5
seconds. Time delay begins immediately upon energizing the coil.
When the timing cycle is complete, a mechanical latch holds the
contacts in position and the coil is de-energized.

Description
Dial A is divided into a 24 hour day and night scale, and has tabs
around the periphery which may be adjusted to operate the micro
switch within intervals each 24 hours. Each tab represents a 15 minute
interval. Dial B has 7 spokes and advances one position for each
revolution of Dial A. Each spoke has provision to add a pin to operate
the micro switch. These pins represent days of the week and their
function is to prevent operation of the micro switches on selected days.
Application
The plant Exerciser is a Program Time Switch which functions to start
and stop the engine-generator set and transfer switch automatically at
pre-selected intervals or times. It consists of a synchronous electric
motor and a gear assembly to rotate a dial 360°C each day for a week
(168 hours). On the periphery of the dial there are levers or tabs which
can be set to operate a mechanical load switch as dial rotates. These
levers can be selected to operate the switch at specific times of the
day daily or specific days of the week. The cycle repeats weekly. The
Plant Exerciser may be used in two different ways as an accessory for
transfer switches.
1.
Modules include all necessary control, voltage sensing and logic
transformers.
Two versions are available. The standard module has three phase
monitoring of the normal source and one phase monitoring of the
emergency source. The optimal module has three phase monitoring on
both the normal and emergency sources.
It may to simulate an interruption in the normal source of supply at
selected intervals, at least once per week, causing the transfer
switch components to function, including start-up of the enginegenerator set and transfer of load to the generator supply. At the
end of the interval it will initiate the transfer back to normal supply
and shut down the engine-generator.

intervals, at least once per week, but without causing the transfer
switch to operate and transfer the load to the generator supply.
At the end of the interval it will cause the engine-generator to
shutdown.
INSTRUCTIONS — TO OPERATE THE ENGINE FOR AN INTERVAL
ONCE EACH WEEK, WITH OR WITHOUT OPERATION OF THE
TRANSFER SWITCH.
1.
Extend the tabs of Dial A outwards, except those representing the
time of day for the running of the engine or operation of the
transfer switch.
2.
Determine the day of the week for this testing. Install the six brass
pins (called skip pins) in the spokes of Dial B representing the
other six days of the week.
3.
Turn Dial A counterclockwise until the special tab at 12:00 midnight
advances Dial B. Turn Dial B until present day of the week is
opposite the copper arrow. Turn Dial A counterclockwise until the
correct time of day (or night) is opposite the arrow on the nameplate.
4.
If the interval of running the engine is desired more than one day
per week but at the same time of day, remove the skip pin from
the appropriate spoke of Dial B.
Caution
DO NOT insert skip pins in any spoke when that spoke is pointing
towards the copper arrow
Portable Test Kit #50
An inexpensive, portable test kit, #1278C67G01, is available for
convenient field testing and calibration of all plug-in cards and output
relays. The only power source required is a 120V convenience outlet.
A selector switch allows the operator to test individual cards or to
simulate ATS operation by having the source monitoring cards drive
the time delay cards which in turn drive the output relays, exactly as in
actual use. Calibration checks or changes can thus be accomplished
without necessity of energizing the alternate power source.

Schematic of Robonic II Transfer Switch
Consider the Robonic II in the normal operating position, with normal
power available and the normal interrupter closed. The following are
energized: U.V. (undervoltage module), TDES (time delay engine
start), and NR (normal relay).
The U.V. monitoring all 3 phases of the normal power, senses a dip or
loss of voltage which instantly causes NR to deenergize. Contacts NR2
and NR4 open, and contacts NR1 and NR3 close. TDES times out,
closing it’s contacts and initiating the emergency system start up. When
the emergency system reaches correct levels of voltage and frequency,
ER is energized and contact ER2 closes. This completes the emergency
control circuit, and TM (transfer motor) begins to operate.
First, the normal interrupter is opened, and then the emergency
interrupter is closed. At this point, the ELS (emergency limit switch)
contacts change state, and the BS (motor brake) closes, preventing
TM over travel. The NLS (normal limit switch) contacts change state in
preparation for re-transfer to the normal power source.
Upon return of stabilized normal power, NR is re-energized disabling
the emergency control circuit, and enabling normal control circuit. The
TM operates, opening the emergency interrupter and closing the
normal interrupter. When the re-transfer is completed, the NLS contacts
change state isolating TM, and BS closes. TDES becomes energized
opening it’s contacts. TDEC times out to allow the emergency generator
to run unloaded and cool off before shutting down. The Robonic II is
now ready to react to another normal power failure.

Replacing Parts
Parts List
The Robonic Automatic Transfer Switch has been designed to have all
components accessible and readily removable from the front of the
panels. The Robonic Transfer Switch is divided into two basic sections.
The upper section consists of the main contacts and transfer mechanism,
the lower section consisting of all the automatic control devices.
Part Name
Caution
When replacing any parts of the mechanism, control transformers or
breakers, isolate the Robonic Transfer Switch from any possible source
of power.
To remove the transfer mechanism of the LRO transfer switch, first
open the cover and remove the slide pin from the operating cam, then
remove the centre bolt, the mechanism will lift straight off. The breakers
and transfer motor bracket are held by four screws for ease of removal
and replacement. When replacing the mechanism, first set it on the
Robonic with the breaker handles in the holes provided and then fasten
the centre bolt reasonably tight with the mechanism fully movable with
an equivalent swing distance up and down.
To remove the transfer mechanism of the RO transfer switch, remove
the four bolts holding it, taking note of which holes the bolts were in,
then lift the mechanism straight off. The breakers are held by two bolts
at one end and the bus connectors on the other end. The transfer motor
is mounted to the transfer mechanism cover and centre drive gear.
When replacing any part of the transfer mechanism, be sure that the
scribe lines of the gears are in a straight row (example shown on page 6).
To prevent operation of the transfer switch while replacing mechanism
or components, disconnect all sources of power.
When replacing the mechanism move it about until the breaker toggles
fit between the mechanism fingers and then fasten the bolts tightly. To
test for proper operation first operate manually and then connect 120
volt, 60 Hertz supply to motor leads and observe operation for free
movement and proper breaker operation.
The PRO transfer switch mechanism is similar to the RO with the
exception that the PRO mechanism has five gears and is mounted
horizontally. The breakers are fastened to the panel by six bolts.
All Robonic transfer switch breakers and mechanisms have allowed
some adjustments for mounting to assure proper operation without
slipping or binding. Be sure all hardware is tightened sufficiently before
re-energizing any transfer switch.
To replace any of the octal plug-ins relays, pull old units straight out
and insert the replacement unit. Due to the tight fit of the receptacle
and pins, you may have to move the relay about a little to pull it out.
DO NOT INTERCHANGE ANY RELAY WITH ANY OTHERS.
To replace any solid state logic modules, pull straight out and insert the
replacement unit.

Trouble Shooting Guide
Recommended Maintenance
Symptoms
Possible Causes
• refusal to re-transfer to normal
source upon restoration
• a voltage sensing relay did not
energize
• emergency to normal time delay
relay has failed
• a loose control connection
• will not transfer to emergency
source upon failure of normal
source
• engine-generator did not start
• generator not producing enough
voltage at a high enough
frequency
1. DO NOT perform dielectric tests on the equipment with the control
components in the circuit.
2. DO NOT use loctite.
3. Check lubricant in high speed bearings of the motor and the low
speed bearings of the gear box. For lubrication use Dow Corning
Silicon DC44 or equivalent on the high speed bearings and Aero
Shell No. 6 grease or equivalent in gear box after 5000 operations.
4. Check if control components are tight in sockets.
5. Periodically inspect all terminals (load, line and control) for tightness.
Retighten all bolts, nuts and accessible hardware. Clean or replace
any contact surfaces which are dirty, corroded or pitted.
• a loose control connection
• normal to emergency time
delay, if supplied, has failed
• if voltage sensing modules
supplied in emergency, there
may be a failure of one
• transfer without a power failure
in the normal source
• a voltage sensing module has
failed
• emergency to normal time delay
has failed
• no time delay when there
should be
• that particular time delay has
failed
• engine-generator starts when
the normal source has not
failed
• the engine start time delay has
failed
• a plant exerciser has been built
into the system
• a voltage sensing module has
failed
• normal source has failed and
the transfer switch cycles
without stopping in emergency
• the operating cam in the
mechanism has either broken
or come out of the breaker
handle
6. Robonics should be in clean, dry and moderately warm locations. If
signs of moisture are present, dry and clean transfer switch. If there
is corrosion try to clean off, if cleaning is unsuitable replace the
corroded parts. Should dust and/or debris gather on the transfer
switch, brush, vacuum or wipe clean. DO NOT blow dirt into breaker
or terminals.
7. Test the transfer switch operation. While the Robonic is exercising,
check for freedom of movement, hidden dirt or corrosion and any
excessive wear on the mechanical operating parts. Clean, lubricate
or replace parts where necessary.
8. Check all adjustable control components (time delay and voltage
sensing relays) for correct settings.
9. If the type “RO” mechanism is removed be sure that the scribe lines
on the gears are in line. When reassembling the drive mechanisms
be sure that they are fastened to the correct holes in the frame and
that the breaker handles are between the cam fingers (one breaker
has to be on and the other off).
Note: When servicing logic control, or transformer module, disable the
motor circuit
Type LRO Robonics
CAUTION
DO NOT overtighten the pivot screw inside the operating arm. This
screw was correctly adjusted at the factory to provide low friction
movement of the operating arm without excessive play.
• ELS has failed to operate
DO NOT overtighten the set screw holding the operating cam on the
motor shaft.
• if the power is not available on
the load terminals with either
the normal or emergency
sources available and the
transfer switch will not operate
• the breakers may be complete
with trip units and if there has
been a fault on the system, the
motor circuit has been opened
by either EAS and NAS.
Correct and manually reset the
breakers in the transfer switch
