A Siemens Business highlights RTS-30 and RTS03 Series transfer switches
A Siemens Business is highlighting its Russelectric RTS-30 Series and Russelectric RTS-03 Series transfer switches, which provide all the functions of a Russelectric automatic transfer switch plus the ability to bypass power from a live source to load in the event the transfer switch is disabled.
The Russelectric® automatic transfer switches with bypass/isolation, allow the transfer switch portion to be isolated and de-energized for maintenance, testing, or repair.
The company says the Russelectric RTS-30 Series are the most complete line of 480 VAC 30-cycle and 3-cycle UL tested switches available today. They have been fully tested, listed, and labeled for 30-cycle and 3-cycle closing and withstand ratings under UL-1008.
The company claims full draw-out construction allows safe and easy removal of the transfer switch, eliminating the need to make any electrical or mechanical disconnections. Russelectric offers both fail-safe and maintenance bypass switch designs.
Russelectric RTS-03 Series transfer switches with manual bypass/isolation, have some of the highest 3-cycle closing and withstand ratings for 480 VAC or less of any switches available today. All Russelectric RTS-03 Series automatic transfer switches have been fully tested for 3-cycle closing and withstand ratings under UL-1008. When coordinated with current limiting fuses, Russelectric RTS-03 Series transfer switches have UL listed closing and withstand ratings of 200,000 amperes, at 480 VAC.
A Siemens Business says Russelectric RTS-03 and RTS-30 Series transfer switch contacts are machined from solid copper and feature tungsten arcing tips. All mechanical assemblies, linkages, and connecting rods are made in-house. Mechanical linkages are sturdy anodized steel rods with aircraft-style ball joint fittings.
