Electric Buddy Chat #02 : Panel ATS – AMF

After previously the GCI Team discussed the Capacitor Bank Panel, this time the GCI Team is back to discuss the ATS-AMF Panel.

The ATS and AMF panels are part of the Low Voltage Main Distribution Panel (LVMDP). Panel Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) is a panel that functions to move the power source automatically. Meanwhile, the Automatic Main Failure (AMF) Panel is a panel that functions to automatically control the on or off system on the generator engine.

In terms of function, this ATS-AMF panel is very efficient and useful if used in factories or multi-storey buildings. Why can it be called efficient and useful?

Just imagine if our building or factory suddenly experiences a power outage and we don’t use the ATS and AMF Panels. What happened? Of course it will take quite a long time to turn on the generator manually, especially if the distance between the main source of electricity or the generator is far from our position. If the generator is operated manually, then between the times to turn on the generator, there is time that is wasted.

Things are different if we use the ATS-AMF Panel. Why? Because if the main power source dies, the ATS panel will automatically move the system from PLN to Genset. When the ATS Panel gives a signal or moves the system from the PLN to the Genset, it is the AMF Panel that functions to provoke or trigger the Genset to turn on (and turn off, if the main source is on). So, it can be said that the ATS and AMF Panels are one package.

Actually the ATS and AMF Panels can be used separately, but it would be better if they were used together, because the advantage is that it is more efficient and effective, can carry out moving and maintenance of generators (warming up) automatically and which is certainly very helpful in easing the technician’s or operator’s task machine.

That’s a brief discussion about the ATS and AMF Panels. How about your building? Have you used the right Electrical System?
