This Asco Series 300 Automatic Transfer Switch is designed for Single Phase applications up to 260 Amps.

The ASCO Series 300 transfer switch automatically transfers critical loads in the event of a power outage. Rugged construction and proven performance assure the user of many years of reliability. Designed for telecom, commercial, municipal, industrial, and agricultural applications. Also designed to handle the extraordinary demands placed on the switch when starting or restarting installed motors and switching high inrush loads.


  • The Series 300 is listed to UL 1008 standard for Transfer Switch Equipment and CSA standard C22.2 for automatic transfer switches.
  • Meets NFPA 110 for Emergency and Standby Power Systems and the National Electrical Code (NEC) Articles 700, 701 and 702.
  • True double-throw operation: The single solenoid design is inherently inter locked and prevents contacts from stopping between sources or from being in contact with both sources at the same time.
  • There's no danger of the Series 300 ATS transferring loads to a dead source because the unique ASCO single-solenoid operator derives power to operate from the source to which the load is being transferred.
  • Operating parameters and feature settings can be adjusted without opening enclosure door.
  • Supplied with solid neutral termination. (Optional switched neutral pole available.)
  • Compact design for optimum utilization of space.
  • Designed to be completely front- accessible, permitting the enclosures to be installed flush to the wall and still allows installation of all power cabling and connections from the front of the switch.  
  • Numerous enclosure options including UL Type 1 (indoor) and UL Type 3R (outdoor). Models with 3R enclosure now come standard with a 44A strip heater to prevent condensation that can shorten the life of the ATS.


Asco Series 300 New Microprocessor Controller (Group G)

  • groupg-lcd-sm.jpgEasy to navigate 128x64 graphical LCD display with keypad provides LED indicators for switch position, source availability, not in auto, and alert condition. It also includes test and time delay bypass soft keys.
  • Integrated multilingual user interface for configuration and monitoring.
  • Adjustable time-delay feature prevents switch from being activated due to momentary utility power outages and generator dips.
  • Adjustable time-delays for engine start, engine cooldown, transfer, and re-transfer.
  • Inphase monitor to transfer motor loads, without any intentional off time, to prevent inrush currents from exceeding normal starting levels.
  • Voltage and frequency sensing.
  • Engine exerciser to automatically test backup generator each week with or without load (order Accessory 11BE or 72EE for more engine exerciser options).
  • Statistical ATS system monitoring information.
  • Diagnostic functions.
  • Password protection to prevent unauthorized tampering of settings.
  • Further details can be found in the brochure and controller guide below. See pictures above for informative visuals.
