Traditionally, retrofitting a home to permit the connec- tion of a standby generator has meant considerable rework to the home’s electrical infrastructure. Often times this leads to the addition of multiple electrical enclosures and a network of conduit and cabling tying them together. The added complication of multiple enclosures increases the labour costs on installations. It also leaves the home owner with either a cluttered utility room or a less than attractive exterior installation. To solve some of these issues Eaton has developed its new metered, service entrance rated automatic trans- fer switch (ATS).
Combined in a single enclosure and factory wired is
a 200A meter socket, service entrance rated circuit breaker disconnect, and an ATS. The single enclosure assembly saves the installing contractor time and money while leaving the home owner with a more visu- ally appealing installation on the outside of their home.
A traditional service entrance rated assembly would require the installation of a separately mounted meter socket, enclosed circuit breaker or fusible disconnect switch, and an ATS. Eaton provides all three devices
in the one enclosure and factory wires them to carry the utility supply from the meter socket through to the ATS contactor assembly.
Type 3R enclosure is construct- ed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection
of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the
ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow); and that will be undam- aged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.
Two openings on the top of the enclosure provide for overhead service entrance hub mounting. Knockouts in the bottom of the enclosure and matching left and right hand wireways provide for bottom service entrance cabling. The unused wireway(s) can be removed providing additional space in the enclosure. Blanking plates are included to cover
the openings left behind by the removal of either wireway.
