The Zenith Controls ZT30 UL automatic transfer switches (ATS) by General Electric features a Quick Make/Quick Break design that enables manual operation and reduces a user's exposure to arc flash. Courtesy: GEGE (NYSE: GE) announced that its Zenith Controls ZT30 UL 1008 listed 30-cycle automatic transfer switch (ATS) are designed to help maximize system availability in critical facilities, such as hospitals or data centers, the ZT30 helps to isolate a fault condition to restrict outages to the equipment affected and maintain power to critical equipment in the rest of the facility. 

The ZT30 also has a Quick Make/Quick Break design that enables manual operation with the door closed, minimizing the operator’s exposure to arc flash. A patented shutter door also is available which, when the ATS portion of a bypass switch is being tested or maintained, covers the live bus bars forming a barrier that protects maintenance personnel.

The ZT30 includes additional features such as an interchangeable source cable termination, 100 percent top or bottom cable entry and simple field configurable voltage selection that enable contractors to realize faster and easier installation. These customization capabilities enable design-consulting firms to create optimum system architecture plans.
