ASCO Series 300 Enclosed- ASCO Series 300 automatic transfer switches are suitable for emergency and standby power system applications.
ASCO Series 300 Open - ASCO Series 300 automatic transfer switches are suitable for emergency and standby power system applications. These units are identical to Series 300 enclosed but do not have front covers or doors. This Series is designed to be installed inside rack systems or other enclosures and will not meet electrical or UL codes if installed standing alone.
Sizes 30 through 3000 amps in a compact design with 2, 3, & 4 pole configurations. Available 120 to 600 VAC. UL 1008 listed to 480 VAC for total system loads. True double-throw, inherently interlocked construction to absolutely prohibit connecting both sources together. Mechanically held, electrically operated utilizing a reliable, field-proven single solenoid operator. Contacts easily accessible for easy inspection and preventive maintenance. Meets National Electric Code requirements (U.S.). Rated for emergency and standby applications.

ASCO Automatic Transfer Switch, "Standard" Features - Enclosed - Series 300 Manual bypass of transfer to normal TD with Test switch Auto engine exerciser with load/no load switch Switch position lights, source availability lights, test switch, and time delay bypass switch. ATS position indicating contacts, Normal, Emergency Motor load transfer controls (in-phase monitor) to keep motors operating during transfer. Provisions for remote transfer contact (peak shave/test), with automatic bypass (retransfer) if emergency fails, and normal is acceptable. Load disconnect contacts, with TD which operate before/after transfer Standard Engine Exerciser for weekly automatic testing of engine generator set with or without load. Pre-transfer & post-transfer load disconnect contacts for signaling motor starters, elevators, VFDs and other selected loads. Selectable control switches for voltage, frequency, time delay settings & additional control features. Voltage & Frequency Sensing Standard Control Contacts Adjustable three-phase, close differential voltage sensing on normal source. Switch position indicating contacts (rated 10 amps 250VAC, 32VDC). (1) for Normal position, (1) for Emergency position Normal source pickup voltage is adjustable to 95% of nominal; drop-out is adjustable from 70 to 90% of nominal.
Gold plated engine start contacts (rated 5 amps 28VDC or 120VAC).
Time Delays Remote Control Features Adjustable time delay to override momentary normal source outages to delay all transfer switch and engine-starting signals. Remote test switch. Transfer to emergency time delay. Adjustable from 0 to 5 minutes for controlled timing of load transfer to emergency. Remote time delay bypass switch. Retransfer to normal time delay. Adjustable to 30 minutes. Inhibit transfer to emergency. Five-minute unloaded running time delay for generator cool down. Extensive remote control capabilities.
Four-second time delay to override momentary to ignore momentary voltage and frequency transients during initial GenSet loading.
Remote contact for test or for peak shaving applications. The circuit will be automatically bypassed if an emergency source fails. .
