Russelectric RTSAll Russelectric RTS Series 30-cycle- and 3-cycle-rated automatic transfer switches now come equipped with the company’s powerful new RPTCS microprocessor automatic transfer control system. More specifically, each system offers:

  • Real-time metering of voltage (phase-to-phase and phase-to-neutral), and frequency of both normal and emergency power sources. 
  • The capacity of the controller to sense the voltages of both power sources and, by means of easy-to-see LEDs, indicate switch position and source availability. 
  • An intuitive, interactive menu to guide the user through controller setup and the entering of configuration data, including communications and timing setpoints, adjustable control parameters (interlocks, alarms and security) and event logging.
  • Setup, alarm acknowledgement and review of actual data using the controller’s soft keys and color display. 
  • The ability to monitor power quality with available waveform capture and historical trending. 
  • Automatic display of the status of monitored conditions (faults, alarms, inhibits, etc.) and other messages in color-coded banners at the top of the screen of the controller.
  • 2 communication interfaces — standard Modbus RTU or optional Modbus TCP/IP via 10/100 Base-T Ethernet. 
  • An external communication port on the controller’s faceplate for fast, easy connection to a laptop.
  • Optional 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. 
  • Programming at the factory to include customer-specified options.
