Emerson Network Power’s (NYSE: EMR) Asco Series 300 Generator Paralleling System is a transfer switch-based, multi-feature packaged power system with load management that is designed for mission-critical applications. The Asco Series 300 packaged power system combines the transfer mechanism with load distribution and control technology originally developed for mission-critical, highly-engineered installations and is available from 208 to 600 V. The Asco Series 300 can synchronize, parallel, and provide load sharing for a wide range of gen-sets, of different sizes and manufacturers using bias signals to the voltage regulator and governor. This provides needed flexibility to facility managers when they plan power expansions and equipment replacement.

The Asco Series 300 feature set includes load bus optimization, generator load demand, and generator power metering for controls. The system also can manually add and shed loads, manually start gen-sets and connect to the load bus. The operator touch screens provide fingertip access to data and graphics designed to provide monitoring and control with minimal navigation. Screens include metering, event and alarm logs, bus optimization and load demand set up, and manual paralleling.
