CTG Series Automatic Transfer Switch

Overview

The Cat® CTG Series Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS) are pre-configured for applications requiring the dependability and ease of operation found in a full feature power contactor type transfer switch.
CTG switches are equipped with the next generation MX150 microprocessor panel, which controls the operation and displays the status of the transfer switch's position, timers and available sources. As an embedded digital controller, the MX150 offers high reliability and ease of unattended operation across a range of applications.

Technical Summary
Transfer TypeOpen transition
Rating Range40-3000A
Switch TypeContactor based
Standard Features
Auxiliary Contact:
Closed when the switch is in the normal position
(Additional contacts optional)
Time Delay to Engine Start: Standard setting 3 seconds, adjustable 0-10 seconds
Peak Shave/Remote Load Test: Input for peak shave or remote load test; includes automatic return to normal if emergency source fails and normal is present; 120 VAC

When specified for use with a CTGD Series delayed transition switch, the control panel also includes the following:
Event Log OD 16 Event that track date, time, reason and action taken
Time Delay on Retransfer to Normal: To delay retransfer to normal source (immediate retransfer on generator set failure); standard setting 30 minutes, adjustable 0-60 minutes
7, 14, 28 day interval timed exerciser, pushbutton/timer operation
Test Switch - Momentary
In-Phase Monitor, self-adjusting (Not available on CTGD models)
Auxiliary Contact:
Closed when the switch is in the emergency position
(Additional contacts optional)
Push button Bypass of time delay and normal emergency
Voltage and Frequency Indication for S1 and S2
Engine Start Contact
MX150 Control Panel
LED/LCD indicators for ease of viewing and long life
Time Delay for Engine Cool Down: Allows engine to run unloaded after switch retransfer to normal; standard setting 5 minutes, adjustable 0-60 minutes
Inputs opto-isolated for high electrical immunity to transients and noise
Built-in diagnostics with LCD display for immediate troubleshooting
Nonvolatile memory (exerciser battery backup not required for standard operation)
Processor and digital circuitry isolated from line voltage
Communications header for network interface
Time Delay on Transfer to Emergency: To delay transfer to emergency after verifying emergency source available; standard setting 1 second, adjustable 0-5 minutes
Timer and voltage/frequency settings adjustable without disconnection from power sources
