Automatic Mains Failure (AMF) systems are required for the monitoring of the mains electricity then in the event of a power disturbance or failure to automatically start the standby generator, then on return of a satisfactory mains return to then shutdown the generator, after a cool down period The AMF system also monitors the engine and alternator whilst in running mode. The Automatic Mains Failure modules can be mounted on the set, wall or floor mounting.
AMF systems or modules can be supplied with new and existing generators when they offer an upgrade option with the latest technology.
Automatic Transfer System (ATS) panels are available for sale, either with a generator or separately. The panels are required to automatically switch between the mains and generator supply in the event of an electrical power outage. We can supply ATS starting in capacity from 100amps up to an exceeding 3000amps. The ATS panels are manufactured with with either mechanical and electrically interlocked contactors, circuit breakers or motorised changeover devises. Updating existing generating set systems with modern ATS components or complete panels is an option to comply to the latest electrical standards and practices.
ATS options include:
Wall, floor or plant mounting enclosures
Protection to different IEC (Intenational Electrothechnical Commission) codes and standards
Acoustically treated canopies/enclosures or containers are supplied for mainly external usage though sometimes they will be installed internally. They can be supplied as a standard close-fit types, drop-over or custom built to meet different operational requirements, standards or regulations, including for planning considerations. The enclosures can be supplied with both new generators or manufactured for used generator updating requirements.
The canopies or containers provide the following reasons:
To protect the generators and internal control system from the weather
To improve the security and protection of the equipment
Reduce noise emissions for employees, all site workers, neighbours and the public
Appearance considerations including availability in different colours
