What is the number of failures / per million hours of operation for the Altistart ATS46 ( mean time for repair )?

Mean Time Between Failure is 176,000 hours for the ATS46.

Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
The mean time expected between failures, typically measured in hours. MTBF is a statistical value and is meant to be the mean over a long period of time and large number of units. For constant failure rate systems, MTBF is the inverse of the failure rate.
Technically MTBF should be used only in reference to repairable items, while MTTF should be used for non-repairable items

Mean Time to Failure (MTTF)
The mean time expected to the first failure of a piece of equipment.
