We have 2 Switchgear which feed our Cooling Units via an ATS.
Switchgear A and Switchgear B both power the ATS which in turn power the Cooling Unit.
Using the Generic ATS genome, I can set the power dependancy from the ATS to a primary connection of Switchgear A and a secondary connection of Switchgear B, which is great (as previously they could only be powered from one source), however, I am unable to power the cooling unit from the ATS.
The genome suggests that the ATS has a Dist panel, but there are no properties in order to create a distribution panel. Assuming that this is why I can't power the cooling unit?
I have also tried to power single feed devices via an ATS (i.e. a Distribution Board), however am finding similar results. I assume this is due to the lack of a breaker panel in the genome?

I don't think equipment (such as cooling units) can be powered/connected directly to an ATS device (as power supply). You might want to add a PDU between cooling unit(s) and ATS.
