ATS Description Circuit breakers

ABB, Siemens or similar power interrupters IEC/EN 60947 AC1 listed Optional Tripping units will convert the interrupters into protection capable circuit breakers. This is a quite cost saving feature when the ATS is located close to the generator set. It performs then the generator protection and the switch function, avoiding double cost. Steel Electrical panels and bus bar systems. Type-tested bus bar systems The type-tested bus bar systems consist of standard components and cover a range up to 8750 amps. The systems are tested by KEMA and ASTA according to IEC/EN 60439-1 to a short circuit level of 120 kA for 1 sec. and a peak withstand current of max. 264kA. The bus bar sections are easily assembled in templates and fitted into the panel. With specially developed assembly bolt, it is not necessary to drill holes or cut threads. The assembly bolt allows for an adjustable connection, exactly where it is needed on the bus bar holders. All bus bar joints are designated as maintenance-free according to DIN 43671. The bus bar systems are easy to install in the panel assembly. Standard inserts are available for all kinds of circuit breakers/switches on the market. Type-tested connections are ensured through the use of patented flexible copper conductors, which easily adapt to the various components makes. All inserts are constructed with much built-in functionality for rational workshop installation and thus increased competitiveness.

CATERPILLAR pays much attention to both personal safety and operational dependability and therefore, selects good tested according to the market demand, such as earthquake test, shock test and arcing test. Type-tested steel panel systems The steel panels modular system is based on a concept of standard modules for the construction of electrical panels. It is possible to construct an enclosure using a relatively few standard parts and components. The versatility of the modular system makes it easy and quick to assemble and install electrical panels as well as to extend and/or modify existing enclosures. These panels are all tested and/or type approved by several of the worlds most recognized test laboratories. Furthermore, the panels are certified according to the norms in ISO 9001.

Options The IEC series ATS is offered with the below optional features. Tripping unit This option elegantly adds an electronic tripping device to one of the air circuit breakers. The tripping unit is the ABB electronic PR122 LSI type or equivalent. Using this option one can perform 50 and 51 ANSI protection with the ATS. One can add the protection to one or to both source sides of the ATS. If the unit is needed on both sides, please add the option twice. Please select the appropriate option of 3 or 4 poles. Withdrawable breaker This option converts a fixed circuit breaker in a withdrawable one. It adds a compatible drawer to the cabinet. Using this option one can easily perform service visits of the ATS Manual and visible lockout functions with the ATS. One can add the protection to one or to both source sides of the ATS. If option is needed on both sides, please add the option twice. Please select the appropriate option of 3 or 4 poles. Power monitor Display Displays kW, kVAr, Amps, Volts phase-phase, phase-neutral and more. Class 0.5s for measurement and metering according to IEC 62053-22. The power monitor provides effective solutions for network monitoring, installation sizing, energy management and electrical network quality measurement. One can add the device on one or on both source sides of the ATS. If both side is needed please add the option twice. Relay logic. The relay logic is a classic relay type control of the ATS. It replaces the electronic controller ATS380. This option is useful in rare applications where electronic controller is not acceptable. Generator Set Auxiliaries power feeders.
