  • Page 11: General Information

    General information Properties of the ATC6300 transfer control device The ATC6300 transfer control device, in combination with Siemens circuit breakers with motor operators (ACB, MCCB) or remotely operated transfer switching equipment (RTSE), enables a transfer between a main and an alternative power source. The stability of the power supply is analyzed by means of voltage taps upstream of the switching devices.
  • Page 12 ● Voltage unbalance ● Minimum and maximum frequency Area of application The ATC6300 transfer control device can be used in conjunction with Siemens switching devices, e.g. in the following industrial areas in which a continuous power supply needs to be ensured.
  • Page 13: Compatible Siemens Sentron Switching Devices

    General information 2.2 Compatible Siemens SENTRON switching devices Compatible Siemens SENTRON switching devices The ATC6300 permits the transfer between two supply sources using the following Siemens products. Note A motor operator must be implemented to transfer between circuit breakers. Precise connection diagrams can be obtained from chapter Connection (Page 65). For further information about testing, please refer to chapter Accessories for switching devices (Page 76).
  • Page 15: Applications

    These can make and conduct short-circuit currents, and also break them in the event of an overload. The ATC6300 functions as class CB transfer switching equipment in connection with two Siemens 3VA or 3VL molded case circuit breakers with motor operators, and in connection with two 3WL or 3WT air circuit breakers.
  • Page 16: Network/Generator Application

    Applications 3.1 Transfer control 3.1.2 Network/generator application For the network/generator application the load is normally connected to the main source (Line 1). Following a deviation in the voltage or frequency, and after the defined delay time, a start signal is sent to the generator (Line 2). If the generator supplies the desired voltage, the load is transferred to the secondary source (generator) until the main source supplies the desired supply quality.
  • Page 17: Controlling The Switching Devices

    Applications 3.2 Controlling the switching devices Controlling the switching devices The ATC6300 can control various devices for automatic transfer switching. How the control of the switching devices can be implemented is shown below. ● Depending on the type of transfer device used, the appropriate wiring diagram shall be used (see chapter Connection (Page 65)), as well as the programmable inputs/outputs on the ATC6300 (see chapter Description and designation of the outputs (Page 110)).
  • Page 18: Controlling Remotely Operated Transfer Switching Equipment

    Applications 3.3 Voltage control 3.2.2 Controlling remotely operated transfer switching equipment The control of remotely operated transfer switching equipment (single motor operator) is similar to the control of circuit breakers with motor operator, however it requires only three outputs (close Line 1, open both lines, close Line 2) and two inputs for the status of the transfer switching equipment.
  • Page 19 Applications 3.3 Voltage control ● In the case of three- or two-phase power supplies you can choose whether you want to monitor the phase-to-phase voltage, the phase-to-neutral voltage, or both (P02.07). In each case, the rated voltage set in P02.01 must be equal to the phase-to-phase voltage. ●...
