LOVATO Electric expands its offering of automatic transfer switches with the new ATL601.
A full set of functions, many of which can be customised, make power distribution systems even more high performance.
The real new feature is its power supply: the ATL601 is powered at 12-24VDC, either by battery (for use in power generator applications) or by the automation power supply already installed in the electrical enclosure.
In addition to this, the ATL601 can be used in any configuration (utility-to-utility, utility-to-generator and generator-to-generator) and permits both supervision and switching between the two monitored sources.
The front optical port – which has become the communication standard on the latest generation of LOVATO Electric products – enables connection of controllers via USB or Wi-Fi to PCs, tablets and smartphones (using accessories CX01 and CX02), thus guaranteeing completely safe programming, thanks both to the opto-isolation and the lack of ports on the back of the device and their corresponding physical connections.
The backlit LCD graphic display considerably simplifies programming and reading of status information and operating data, even in poorly lit installations.
All text messages are available in 5 languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish and German), so that the user has a user-friendly interface with the pages displaying the voltage measurements for the two sources and the threshold setting and violation displays.
The inputs and outputs have a default configuration which suits the most common applications, and the user can customise the device with an extensive set of functions and internal variables.
The switch controller records all the statistical data relating to the system, the number of switch operations, the operating time of the individual lines with or without load and much more besides.
Since this data is available, new functionality has been introduced in order to facilitate switching system maintenance and enable two alarms which trip when the set number of switching operations or operating time are exceeded.
Alarms, all with configurable properties, are signalled by a red LED on the front of the device and pop-up windows on the graphic display, complete with alarm descriptions in the selected language (five are available).
The new ATL601 makes monitoring, controlling and maintaining plant faster and more efficient with its Xpress configuration software and the SAM1 app for iOS and Android, which offers simple local control of connected devices with a tablet or smartphone.
