ASCO® Multiple Bus Load and Generator Control software makes it possible for a single programmable logic controller (PLC) in ASCO Generator Paralleling Switchgear to reliably operate up to eight independent multiple buses simultaneously with full functionality. In addition, when multiple buses are part of a three-phase, complex tie breaker connected ring, the software offers the flexibility to operate any combination of the buses as a single system, or separately when they’re disconnected, again with full functionality.Control Software

ASCO Multiple Bus Load and Generator Control software is designed to enhance operational flexibility. Hospitals and other mission critical facilities, such as data centers, often want to power more than priority one loads. But closing and opening tie breakers for multiple loads on multiple buses to connect with multiple gensets could be problematic. Now, they can manage that process automatically, even if they have two entirely separate systems and want to manage them with one PLC. In addition, servicing a tie breaker bus is easier since gen-sets and loads can be routed to other buses. These capabilities improve overall system reliability.
