INTRODUCTION
4.1 Do not connect the power conductors to the transfer switch until they are tested. After the cables are pulled in to position, and before they are connected they should be tested to verify that they are not defective or have been damaged during installation.

4.2

After the power cables have been tested, connect them to the appropriate terminal lugs on the bypass switch as shown on the wiring diagram provided with the switch.

4.3 4.4

Be careful when stripping insulation from the cables, avoid nicking or ringing the conductor. Protect the switch from construction grit and metal chips to prevent malfunction or shortened life of the Transfer Switch.

4.5

All customer connections, including the Generator control contact connections, are located on terminal block TB which is mounted on the top right side of the enclosure. Refer to the wiring diagram provided with the transfer switch and connect the Generator start wires to the appropriate terminals. Connect auxiliary circuit wires to appropriate terminals on transfer switch terminal block TB as shown on the wiring diagram provided with the automatic transfer switch.

5.0 FUNCTIONAL TEST

5.1

After installing the switch check the following: Bypass Handle should be in NORMAL position. Isolation Handle should be in CONNECTED position. TS transfer switch Normal contacts should be C (closed). Emergency contacts should be O (open).If handles are not in correct positions, follow instructions for Bypassing and Isolating the Automatic Transfer Switch.

5.2

First check nameplate on transfer switch: rated voltage must be the same as Normal & Emergency line voltages. Use extreme caution when using a meter to measure voltages. Do not touch power terminals, shock, burns or death could result. Close the normal source circuit breaker. The transfer switch connected to normal and the normal source accepted lights should come on. Use an accurate Voltmeter to check phase to phase and phase to neutral voltages present at the transfer switch normal source terminals. Close the Emergency source circuit breaker. Start Generator manually. The transfer switch connected to Normal and Emergency source Accepted lights should come on. Use an accurate Voltmeter to check phase to phase & phase to neutral voltages present at the transfer switch Emergency source terminals.

5.3

5.4

5.5

Use a phase rotation meter to check phase rotation of emergency source, it must be the same as the normal source. Shut down the Generator. The emergency source Accepted light should go off. Then put generator starting control selector switch in the automatic position. Close enclosure door.

6.0 TRANSFER TEST


6.1 This procedure checks electrical operation of Automatic Transfer Switch. Be sure to close enclosure door before proceeding to prevent personal injury in case of electrical system fault. The ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) should still be bypassed. Both normal & emergency sources must be available and the emergency source generator must be capable of being started; put generator starting control in automatic position. The transfer switch connected to normal light and the Normal source accepted light should be on. 6.2 Turn the Isolation Handle counter clockwise to the TEST position. The Transfer Switch Connected to Normal & Normal Source Accepted lights should be on. 6.3 Turn and hold Transfer Control switch clockwise to Transfer Test until the Generator starts and runs. The Emergency Source Accepted light should come on. Transfer switch will operate to the Emergency position after the Feature 2B time delay. The transfer switch connected to Emergency light should come on and the Transfer switch connected to Normal light goes off. 6.4 Transfer switch will operate back to Normal position after Feature 3A time delay. For immediate retransfer turn Transfer control switch counter clockwise to Retransfer Delay Bypass. The Transfer Switch Connected to Normal light should come on: Transfer Switch Connected to Emergency light should go off. 6.5 The Generator will stop after Feature 2E time delay (unloaded running engine cool down).The Emergency Source Accepted light should go off. 6.6 Turn Isolation Handle clockwise to CONNECTED position. Turn Bypass Handle clockwise to the AUTO position. This completes the functional test of the Automatic Transfer Switch.

7.0 BYPASSING & ISOLATING


7.1 This procedure explains how to Bypass the closed transfer switch contacts. Bypassing is required before the ATS can be tested or isolated. 7.2 Bypass to Normal source push in the bypass handle all the way and turn it counterclockwise. The green light Bypassed to Normal will come ON and the amber light Not In Automatic will flash 7.3 Bypass to emergency turn the Bypass handle clockwise until Bypass switch position shows closed on Emergency. The red light Bypassed to Emergency will come ON and the amber light Not In Automatic will flash 7.4 Isolating is required before any service work can be performed on the ATS. Bypass the closed ATS contacts. Turn the Isolation Handle counter clockwise until window shows TEST. The TS Test amber light should come ON. The ATS can be tested now without load interruption. Continue turning Isolation Handle counter clockwise until the window shows ISOLATE.

8.0 RETURN TO SERVICE


8.1 This procedure explains how to return the ATS to service after inspection and maintenance. Observe the Bypass Switch position Indicator and lights. Use the two handles to roll the ATS in to the enclosure until its crank pins engage the latch plates on both sides. Next push in both side rails and close enclosure door. Turn Isolation handle clockwise until the window shows TEST and TS TEST light comes on. When the ATS is in the same position as the bypass switch handle, continue turning the Isolation handle clockwise until the window shows CONNECTED. 8.2 Turn the Bypass handle clockwise until the Bypass Switch position shows OPEN. The Bypassed To Normal light should go off and the Not In Automatic light should go off.
