Rather than featuring one product per day, Editor-in-Chief Mike Eby is scouring through the hundreds of product submissions we receive each month to bring you what he considers the most noteworthy offerings.
This self-protecting automatic transfer switch (ATS) line from Pioneer Power Solutions is designed for applications on both critical and non-critical loads. Available in three models covering a range of 400A to 2,000A at 65 or 100kAIC (600V) in 3-pole or 4-pole configurations, the product features overcurrent protection and optional draw out functionality, making it suited for UL Service Entrance applications by eliminating the need for additional circuit protection. Draw-out construction also allows for quick replacement of the switch with little or no downtime. The source device not feeding the load can easily be removed for inspection, maintenance and testing.
The on-board electronic trip units provide performance curve shaping to facilitate proper system coordination. Optional arc flash maintenance trip units can be provided to meet the requirements of NEC 240.87 (2014) for Arc Energy Reduction. These trip units are designed to reduce the potential hazard from an arc flash during maintenance. Completely enclosed contacts provide additional safety when working with the switch.
In addition, the switches can also be provided in various configurations: manual, open, delayed, closed, and soft loading (active synchronization) transition; and service entrance manual transfer switch in NEMA 3R with Cam-Lok connectors for roll-up generator stand-by applications. All can be integrated (in-house) with metering & distribution switchboard sections, providing a compact space savings arrangement, minimizing contractor installation time and expense.
