What is a generator transfer switch?
Basically, a generator transfer switch or an automatic transfer switch (ATS) is what allows the transfer of power generation when there is a power outage. It is usually installed beside the main electrical panel and connected to the circuits that you’ll need to keep running during an outage. There are many advantages to installing a generator transfer switch. For one, it will save the homeowner from having all these individual power cords running from the backup generator to an appliance. In a blackout situation, you want to restore power quickly and safely. Starting up your generator and running one power cord from it to your switch panel will ensure an easy transfer of power. For the 3 or 4 hours it might take to install, you’ll have years of worry-free assurance that you won’t be left in the dark.
There are a variety of switches, from single-load transfer panels for generators that are used specifically for one building, like a barn or garage. Manual systems are not the only option. Large institutions, like hospitals, for example, will want an automatic transfer switch (ATS). These are structured to have the power automatically transferred over in outages. To work on such a system takes a certain expertise, as many of them can’t be powered down for maintenance or inspection. These sophisticated systems are equipped with bypass isolation switches, so power is constant. With our many years of experience, we can help you decide which transfer system and generator is best for your installation- large or small. We’ll customize to suit your installation and provide you with emergency generator service.
