Can an ATS48 do ramp switching?

Issue:
Can an ATS48 do ramp switching?

Product Line:
Altistart 48

Environment:
All

Cause:
NA

Resolution:
No, Soft Starters are not capable of ramp switching. The max acceleration time for an ATS48 is 1 minute, and a Soft Starter is designed to just ramp a motor from 0Hz to 60Hz within the programmed acceleration time. 
If ramp switching is needed, a drive will need to be installed.
