News Exterior Transfer Switch Location and Clearance

1
Matt,

Section 7.2.2.1 of NFPA 110-2002 prohibits transfer switches that are part of a Level 1 system from being located in the same room with the normal electrical service equipment unless a minimum of twice the clearance required by 110.26(A) is provided. You are correct that this has been changed in the2005 Edition. I believe the intent of this requirement is to limit the possibility that a catastrophic failure of the service equipment will simultaneously damage the transfer switch. I don't have the 2005 Edition of NFPA 110 but I think this allowance was removed for equipment rated 1,000 amps or more and over 150-volts to ground.

It depends on the type of occupancy and the nature of the loads served whether or not this is a Level 1 system, but it appears the AHJ has already determined that it...

Intelligent transfer switch

A transfer switch is an electrical switch that switches a load between two sources. Some transfer switches are manual, in that an operator effects the transfer by throwing a switch, while others are automatic and trigger when they sense one of the sources has lost or gained power.

An Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) is often installed where a backup generator is located, so that the generator may provide temporary electrical power if the utility source fails.

Operation of a transfer switch[edit]

As well as transferring the load to the backup generator, an ATS may also command the backup generator to start, based on the voltage monitored on the primary supply. The transfer switch isolates the backup generator from the electric utility when the generator is on and providing temporary power. The control capability of a transfer switch may be manual only, or a combination of...

Most of the information below was taken from the DVA website. However, there are a number of other Agencies also carrying out thier own Security Clearances and there appears to be a league table, where one Agency won't accept the Security Clearance granted by another Agency without further checks, this results in delays, even if the candidate appears to have the...

If possible, you should always go with dependency injection, since it has a few clear strength. With UI technologies however, it is not always possible to use dependency injection, since some UI technologies (in .NET space, Win Forms and Web Forms, for instance) only allow your UI classes (forms, pages, controls, etc) to have a default constructor. In that case you will have to fall back to something else, which is service locator.

In that case I can give you the following advice:

Only fall back to Service Locator for UI classes that can't be created by your container using dependency injection, and for stuff that you aren't unit testing anyway. Try to implement as less logic as possible in those UI classes (as Humble objects with only view related stuff). This allows you to unit test as much as possible. Wrap the container around a static method to hide the container from the rest of the application. Make sure that a call to this static method fails, when the dependency...

Through the analysis of other successful transfer case designs, we have manufactured a rugged, all gear-driven transfer case. Combining the latest in CAD/CAM technology and years of in-house CNC machining capabilities, the Atlas transfer case is sure to bring you the utmost in dependability and performance. The Atlas is available for both left and right hand vehicle applications with centered rear differentials.

The solid, one-piece case design is manufactured from 356-T6 heat-treated aluminum alloy. This material is also used for the structural access cover and all other exterior components. The massive gears are helical cut and synchro-equipped for quiet performance and "shift-on-the-fly" capability. These gears are supported by needle bearing elements, precision matched to strong 8620 shafts. The ruggedly designed output shafts are amply supported by large taper bearing sets. The Atlas also features a unique twin stick design to deliver crisp, quiet operation.
