Does the Altistart ATS46 unit still monitor the monitor parameters and provide current monitoring when in the full voltage mode?

N0, the enclosed product division disconnects the control power to the softstart when in the bypass mode.

You do need to verify if truly speaking about bypass or if talking about shorting contactor operation.
Sometimes shorting contactor and bypass contactor terminology are used interchangeable when that is not always the case. Generally, the shorting contactor is pulled in when the soft start is up to speed and when used in this function the starter still monitors current.
When a full voltage bypass is used with unit then these contacts can be closed allowing voltage to motor directly without having to go through the starter and this is when the current is not monitored internally due to wiring.
