InteliATS2 70

Order code: IA270XXXBAA, IA270XXXBAANU

InteliATS2 70 is an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) controller for easy and fast switching between two independent power sources. It monitors and controls the mains supply and its voltage, frequency, and current, with the possibility to connect to a single gen-set. The InteliATS2 70 is designed with high-level security features, and it is easy to use and configure using ComAp’s InteliConfig configuration tool. InteliATS2 controllers are ideal for managing switching power supply in various settings such as administration buildings, schools, factories, hospitality, and other facilities to avoid power outages and potential financial or material damages.

    InteliATS2 70

Easy to install, configure and use, the InteliATS2 70 will ensure swift switching from one power source to another to keep your business and data safe.

Please note that we have two versions of InteliATS 70. The standard one is under order code IA270XXXBAA. The second one is under the temporary order code IA270XXXBAANU and this type of InteliATS does not have UL 1008 certification.

The InteliATS2 70 offers: 

  • Mains-to-Mains or Mains-to-Generation applications
  • Closed Transition (short time parallel), ensuring transition initiates only when both breakers/contactors are in sync. This transition is suitable for systems where no break (no blackout) changeover is required. Option to control motorised circuit breakers, contractors, or changeover switches.
  • Simple configuration, monitoring and control both on-site and remotely thanks to the settings available through ComAp’s InteliConfig, PC monitoring and configuration tool    
  • Precise current measurement in all phases
  • Built-in PLC blocks
  • 8 binary outputs, 8 binary inputs (2 high-current binary outputs)
  • Detailed Real Time Clock event and performance log, helpful for technical support to understand the sequence of events in case of a potential operational issue 
  • Slot for extension plug-in module for 4G-GPS, BI/BO, Ethernet support
  • Broad communication capabilities for internet access, Modbus, SNMP
  • AirGateComAp’s controllers incorporate AirGate connection technology to make access to the internet as simple as possible.
    AirGate enables our controllers to connect to the internet using the existing network infrastructure, negotiating firewalls and VPN systems and removing the requirement for static and public IP addresses.
    to connect to your equipment remotely, without worrying about your asset’s IP address
  • Remote control and monitoring of your gen-set operations with WebSupervisor, our cloud-based fleet management tool 
  • Support for InteliSCADA, our tool for SCADA creation and monitoring
  • Notification alerts via SMS and email
  • Strong security features keeping your business and data as safe as possible
  • Load shedding ensuring the most important loads are running even when there is a lack of power
  • Elevator switch, enabling selected devices to prepare for a short-term power outage when switching between power source
  • User-defined protections and setpoints 
  • Event-based history log for easy troubleshooting
  • Multi-purpose schedulers
  • Multilingual support and translator option
  • Controller size cut-out: 172 x 112mm

Frequently Asked Questions

I cannot program my controller, it looks dead. How do I restore a controller with broken firmware?

The controller firmware does not usually break by itself however it can be damaged during controller programming, typically if power is lost during the process. If there does not seem to be a hardware issue with the controller there is an option to restore the controller using a process called ‘Boot Jumper’ programming.

This can be described as a sequence of steps you need to perform to allow the configuration tool to write new firmware into the device.

The steps typically are:
  • Physically connect the controller to your PC.
  • Power the controller on and initiate connection and firmware programming from the software tool menu.
  • The software will ask you to switch the device off, close the Boot Jumper and switch the device back on.
  • The programming will then proceed and you will receive further instructions during the process.
The boot jumper can be found either on the communication module (where plug-in modules are used) or on the device itself, typically under a rubber grommet, next to the dongle slot.
The description above is not enough? Try our Booot jumper training video.


How do I connect to my ComAp controller? What types of connections are supported?

ComAp offers a wide range of options to connect to your controller:

  • RS232 / RS485
  • USB - USB A<->B (usually a printer cable)
  • Internet connection - LAN, GPRS, 3G, 4G

Note that some connection types require you to use a communication module (plug-in eg a RS232 card) or communication bridge (external device eg Internet Bridge NT).

Each ComAp device usually allows for multiple ways of connection. The simplest one supported by the majority of our devices is the RS232 (serial) connection. For this, you need an RS232 cable (null modem) and if your PC is not equipped with an RS232 port you need a USB<->RS232 converter.
USB connections are very common. Almost all ComAp devices support connection using simple USB A<->B cable (printer cable) for easy configuration. Some devices can be powered from the USB port for programming to allow easy configuration right on your desk.
Other connection types: Internet connection (LAN, GPRS, 3G, 4G), Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, SNMP, AirGate, Modem.
Note that some connection types require you to use a communication module (plug-in eg a RS232 card) or communication bridge (external device eg Internet Bridge NT). Not all types of connection are possible on each device. You can find all the details related to this topic in your device's Comprehensive guide or Communication guide.

How do I change the controller firmware? Where can I get the latest firmware?

You can download the latest firmware package on the webpage of the device. You can easily navigate there through the ‘Products’ section or just use the Search function. If you cannot find the firmware on the website or if you require different than the offered version do not hesitate to contact our support team.

The firmware upgrade itself is easy to perform. You need the appropriate configuration software and a connection to the controller (preferably a direct connection). Prior to initiating the update process, we strongly recommend you to save a complete backup of your device.

It usually consists of several steps:
  • Create a controller back up.
  • Update the device firmware. It will contain default Configuration Archive and default Application.
  • Change the Application (SPtM, MiNT, MCB, MGCB, BTB, etc) to the required type (by programming appropriate default archive to the controller).
  • Use the Import Configuration Wizard to restore your previous configuration. In some cases manual interventions might be needed during this step.
  • Optional: Update the connected display firmware or device communication module firmware.
Should you be unsuccessful in programming the new version, the rollback procedure is to install previous firmware version and use your back up to restore the controller to its original state before the firmware upgrade was attempted.

What do SPtM, MINT, MGCB stand for?

SPtM = Single Parallel to Mains
MINT = Multiple gen-sets with INTernal sync and load sharing
MGCB = Master Generator Circuit Breaker

ComAp’s world is full of abbreviations but once you get a basic understanding of their meanings, you will find them useful when reading the documentation or communicating with us.

Do you support communication to (IVECO, Cummins, MAN, VOLVO, etc.) ECUs?

Yes, ComAp devices are capable of communication with electronic engine control units (ECUs) from the majority of engine manufacturers.

Typically, you connect the ECU directly to the controller using CAN bus. If the ECU does not support the J1939 communication protocol you need to use a communication interface either on the ECU side (such as SAM CCB2 or SmartConnect modules) or on the ComAp side using the I-CB communication bridge.

The communication is typically bi-directional so we support reading of values from the ECU as well as sending commands to the ECU (Start, Stop, etc) and controlling the engine RPM.
