How can I tell if my enclosed ATS48 has Full Voltage Bypass?

Issue:
How can I tell if my enclosed ATS48 has Full Voltage Bypass?

Product Line:
ATV
 
Environment:
All

 
Cause:
Wiring

 
Resolution:
If you have full voltage bypass, there is a Bypass / Normal switch as well as a Hand - Off - Auto.  When you put the selectors in Hand and Bypass the motor is running strictly across the line and the Softstart is not in the circuit at all.  There is also a Shorting Contactor, which is intended to increase the life of the softstart, by not running through the SCRs once the motor is at speed.
