Automatic Transfer Controller ATC-900 Switch Eaton

Automatic Transfer Controller ATC-900 provides all- phase Undervoltage, under frequency, overvoltage, and over frequency protection as a standard. Consult with the local utility company for permission and to verify the protection requirements, as each utility may have different rules regarding closed transition applications. Protective relays may be available as an option upon request.

A transfer switch designed for closed transition has make-before-break contacts, which requires the normal and alternate sources to be synchronized. The source contacts on Eaton’s CTC9 will parallel for 100 ms or less. Besides, a parallel limit timer (watchdog relay) comes standard to prevent paralleling sources for an extended period of time.

Automatic Transfer Controller ATC-900 Switch is a comprehensive, multi-function, microprocessor-based controller, offering extensive monitoring, status reporting, and transfer control operation. The make-before-break contact sequence coupled with Eaton’s ATC-900 provides a transfer switch that is useful in critical standby power applications available from 40–1200 A.
