The Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) has a control cable of 5 meters connecting the generator's electronic panel to the ATS. It is advised that the ATS does not exceed 5 meters from the Electrical Distribution Board and the Generator. The ATS is installed with a trickle charger allowing the battery to be fully charged for when the generator is needed.
The ATS must be sized correctly for the generator set and the main incoming Amperage. This is to ensure that when the incoming mains power is live that the ATS box can handle it. If this is done incorrectly, the ATS will overheat and cease to function correctly. Hence the sizing of the ATS should be done by a professional taking into account the mains incoming power and the Generator output when being used.
The key on the generator has to be in the "On" position for the automatic change over switch to work. The ATS includes a trickle charger to ensure that the battery is always fully charged and ready for use when needed.
Our Automatic Transfer Switches are designed for use with our generators. The control systems may vary with different generators and hence it is not advisable to purchase a Bundu Power ATS for use with another brand of generator.
