All Russelectric RTS Series 30-cycle-rated and 3-cycle-rated automatic transfer switches now come equipped with the company’s new RPTCS microprocessor automatic transfer control system–the emergency/backup power industry’s most powerful, most versatile ATS control, it claims. In addition to the standard features, each system is programmed at the factory to include customer-specified options. Real-time metering of voltage (phase-to-phase and phase-to-neutral) and frequency of both normal and emergency power sources is standard. Available options include metering of phase and neutral current; percent of unbalanced current; percent of unbalanced voltage; accumulated energy (KWH, KVAH, and KVARH); and per-phase and 3-phase totals for real power (KW), apparent power (KVA), reactive power (KVAR), and power factor.
