For G300 (1000-3000A) How do I perform a transfer test? Press transfer switch test button and hold it for 15 seconds or until the generator starts and a transfer occurs. How do I set the transfer time delays? Refer to table 4-1 for the corresponding adjustment. Click here for the DIP switch and Potentiometer location. How does the transfer switch work? (For detailed explanation, refer to section 2 of the operatorâs manual) For Non-Automatic Transfer Switches: Transfer switch operation is performed manually, as well as cranking and starting of the generator; the transfer switch time delays are set the same as the automatic transfer switch. DISCONTINUED PRODUCT The ATS controller monitors the voltage and frequency of normal and emergency. When the normal voltage (utility voltage) fails (The voltage is below the drop-out setting), the controller waits 1 to 3 seconds before it starts the generator. After the delay of 3 seconds, and normal voltage doesnât pick-up (The voltage reaches the pick-up setting), the ATS starts the generator and goes through another time delay (N/E timer) to monitor its voltage and frequency. Once the timer expires, and utility voltage does not pick-up, the load transfers to emergency. The load stays on emergency until utility power is restored. When utility power is restored, the ATS initiates another time delay (E/N timer) before it retransfers to normal. After the time delay expires, the load retransfers to utility and the generator goes to cool down cycle for 5 minutes. Then the generator automatically shuts down.
