The ATC-300+ is a comprehensive and multifunctional microprocessor-based ATS controller. It is a compact and self-contained panel-mounted device that is designed to replace traditional relay and solid-state logic panels. The ATC-300+ Controller provides programmed flexibility to address the needs of any system. It operates from all system voltages between 120 to 600V, single-phase and three-phase at 50 or 60 Hz. In addition, a period of no control power is provided. The controller monitors the condition of the three-phase line-to-line voltage and frequency of Source 1 and Source 2 power sources and can be programmed for single-phase operation. The ATC-300+ Controller provides the intelligence to ensure that the ATS operates properly through a series of programmed sensing and timing functions.
