UL Tested, Listed, and Labeled

Russelectric  was  the  industry  leader in obtaining UL  listing  for  its medium-voltage  transfer switchgear.  All Russelectric RTS Series circuit breaker automatic transfer switches have been fully  UL  tested,  listed,  and  labeled under  UL  1008A.  In  addition,  all Russelectric  medium-voltage  transfer switchgear  (operating above 600 volts  and below 15 kV) is  listed  per  UL category  “Circuit  Breakers  and Metal-Clad  Switchgear  –  Over  600 Volts  (DLAH)”.  It  is  also  designed, manufactured,  and  tested  to  meet or  exceed  stringent  IEEE,  NEMA, and ANSI standards.

Rugged High Speed Switching Devices

Russelectric RTS Series Russelectric Medium-Voltage Circuit Breaker type Automatic Transfer Switches are designed to transfer electrical loads from a normal power source to an emergency power source upon reduction or loss of voltage and to retransfer loads when normal power is restored.

Supervised by the advanced RPTCS microprocessor control, Russelectric Medium-Voltage Circuit Breaker Automatic Transfer Switches direct the flow of electric power through the carefully timed opening/closing of circuit breakers.

Available in Automatic Transfer Switch
and Bypass/Isolation Configurations

Designed, for Maximum Safety and Operating Simplicity

Switches are designed to provide maximum protection for operators and maintenance personnel and to minimize the danger of operator error. Drawout modules, metal-clad construction, segregation of controls from power elements, and separately accessible grounded compartments are all part of Russelectric’s design safety philosophy.

All switches are designed for unattended automatic operation, but include controls for manual operation. Designs provide accessibility for maintenance, trouble-shooting, and component replacement.

All switches are factory tested for functionality prior to shipment. Interconnect wiring diagrams enable proper interfacing of switches with

Design, Manufacture, and Testing

All  bus  is  formed,  cut,  and  punched before being insulated with high-dielectric epoxy coating  to guarantee  the  integrity of  the  insulation  and  ensure  maximum performance.  Busbars  pass  through
track-resistant,  polyester  glass  barriers between cubicles. Main bus  joints have silver-plated  connections  and  are insulated with preformed boots.

All transfer switches are thoroughly inspected and tested both mechanically and electrically under simulated operating conditions before shipment.
