  • Permanently affixed operating handle allows for safe manual operation under full load.
  • Field-selectable multi-tap transformer panel permits operation on a wide range of system voltages.
  • Suitable for use as service equipment in the standard enclosure size.
  • A unidirectional gear motor mechanism allows for fast, powerful, safe power switching.
  • Completely enclosed contacts ensure the integrity of the contact assemblies and minimizes the need for periodic maintenance of contacts, reducing downtime.

Eaton Magnum Breaker-Based Automatic Transfer Switches

Eaton

The Magnum family of transfer switches offers the highest withstand capacity in the industry. Designed for applications where total system coordination must be accomplished, they offer a variety of standby power applications for critical and non-critical loads.

Eaton Magnum Transfer Switches offer the utmost in flexibility, reliability and value. They are designed for applications where total system coordination must be accomplished while achieving a high level of Withstand, Interrupting, and Closing performance.

Features:

  • During normal power interruption, these switches will automatically transfer the load circuits to the emergency power source. Once normal power has been restored, the process is automatically reversed.
  • Rated for 200-5000A up to 600V in 2, 3 or 4 pole configurations. Eaton's Magnum transfer switch is available in non-automatic, open, delayed, closed, and soft load transition.
  • Eaton's Magnum Transfer Switches are UL 1008 listed with a thirty cycle short time rating, In addition, the use of optional electronic trips allows performance curve shaping to facilitate proper system coordination and application.
  • Available with Eaton's ATC-600 controller for open and delayed transition applications and the ATC-800 controller for closed transition transfer switches.
  • Drawout construction is available for applications such as critical life support systems where preventive maintenance, inspection, and testing must be accomplished while maintaining continuous power to the load.
  • Allows for system testing without power interruption and prevents block-loading of the engine generator set.
  • Multi-Tap Voltage Selector provides for application on a variety of system voltages.
  • Each switching device is independent which allows it to be replaced either with a spare switch a replacement unit available from the factory.
  • Completely enclosed contacts add a measure of safety and reliability and ensure the integrity of the contact assemblies. This minimizes the need for periodic maintenance of the contacts, reducing downtime and maintenance time.
  • Keyed quick-disconnect plugs are provided for easy and complete isolation of the control circuitry

Eaton Bypass Isolation Transfer Switches

Eaton

The bypass isolation switch is designed for applications where maintenance, inspection and testing must be performed while maintaining continuous power to the load. This is typically required in critical life support systems and standby power situations calling for safe system maintenance with no power disruptions.

The bypass isolation switch is designed for applications where maintenance, inspection and testing must be performed while maintaining continuous power to the load.
