WAHT IS ATS PANEL
What is ATS panel? The ATS panel automatically manages the connection assignment of the load to utility power or generator.
As a result, an ATS panel (Automatic Transfer Switch panel) is the ideal choice in cases where you have to control a GENERATOR that is connected to the UTILITY POWER in a standby configuration.
In other words an ATS PANEL is normally waiting for a failure of the Utility Power. All functions are normally scheduled by the ATS controller included in the ATS panel. A basic ATS pnel offers a MANUAL and AUTOMATIC mode of operation.
In other words, the ATS panel manages, in the AUTO mode of operation, the connection assignment of the LOAD to UTILITY POWER or GENERATOR. The ATS panel may include additional equipment like automatic battery charger and a set of electronic circuit boards complete with power relays that interface directly with the GENERATOR.
Advanced ATS controllers are able to provide adjustable settings to protect the all system like OVER-UNDER voltage and frequency. The ATS controller may feature a set of adjustable settings able to monitor the current. The ATS panel is conveniently tasked with driving the circuit breakers or switch-gear.
Despite the fact that the power configuration and general arrangement is the same for all ATS panels, the input output lines for the engine connection and ancillary equipments depends on the type of controller fitted to the ATS panel.
Equally important are ancillary devices like serial interface, remote control, monitoring systems, Modems and Routers. Available sizes on the market are normally in the range 10-1000kVA. ATS panels of small size, normally in the range 5kVA-10kVA are suitable for home applications. The ATS panels over 10kVA are normally tri-phase as a result are suitable for industrial and big commercial buildings.
ATS PANEL SUITABLE FOR
YOUR HOME GENERATOR
Firstly, the safest way to connect a generator to your house is by using an ATS Panel.
Secondly, the installation must be done by a professional licensed electrician. He will install the ATS panel in your home and connect it to the main breaker box. This keeps you safe and makes sure that your system remains up to code. This will help keep you from accidentally electrocuting someone else or even yourself.
Most importantly, the ATS panel will allow you to connect any style of generator providing all the time protection to your appliances and to your generator. Especially, when you rent a generator for the duration of the power outage, you will be sure to return back the generator in perfect conditions.
In order to be sure that your family stays safe and, in any situation, your insurance company cannot dispute your claim because of “faulty wiring”, we recommend that you get your system very well inspected.
Despite the fact that the ATS panel can automatically start & stop a standby generator, by using a portable generator you have to start the generator by following the step-by-step manufacturer recommendations.
Once the ATS will detect the presence of the electric power coming from your portable generator (connected to the ATS panel via an inlet male receptacle hook of suitable size), it will manage, in a fully automatic way, the connection assignment of the LOAD to UTILITY POWER or GENERATOR.
In particulat, you will understand that the converse also applies when the Mains Supply returns within its limits except the fact that you have to manually stop your portable generator after a reasonable cooling down time.
THE CONECT ATS PANEL
The CONECT ATS panel is mainly designed for a portable generator. Fistly, the CONECT ATS panel includes the basic functions of a Mains Failure panel. Secondly, it activate an output committed to drive the auto start module of you generator (example PRAMAC PMD5000 or HYUNDAI DYH6000).
Thirdly and most important, the CONECT ATS panel features a MANUAL CHANGEOVER SWITCH that OVERRIDES the internal automatic changeover. This is particularly useful in an extreme case of a total panel crash. By switching the CHANGEOVER SWITCH to BYPASS, you directly connect the load to utility power.
Additionally, the CONECT ATS panel includes a battery charger. You can connect a standard automatic power generator. This will maintain in good condition the battery for years to come. In case of severe lightning, the CONECT ATS panel features a powerful network of fuses and varistors to protect your electrical system.
To summarize, the CONECT ATS panel protects your generator in case of short circuit preventing damages to your appliances in case of frequent short-duration power outages. It reconnects your house only after restoring the UTILITY POWER. The nominal current is rated at 32A while the nominal voltage is rated for the European 230V UTILITY POWER. A version 115V 60Hz is optionally available,
