A transfer switch is the device that transfers the source of electrical power from the utility grid to the generator. In situations where uninterrupted power supply is critical for operations, transfer switches play a crucial role in providing seamless power transfer during outages or planned maintenance.

Transfer switches are available in standard, bypass-isolation and service-entrance configurations with open, programmed and closed-transition operating modes.

The benefits of transfer switches are many, including:

Seamless Power Transition: Automatic transference of power from the main grid to the backup generator in the event of a power outage.

Safety: Prevent backfeeding of electricity into the grid, and also prevent damage to the generator by protecting it from overload when the power returns.

Load Management: Transfer switches allow for selective powering of specific circuits or equipment, enabling efficient load management during power outages.

Compliance with Electrical Codes: Many industrial facilities are required by electrical codes and regulations to have transfer switches installed for backup generator systems.

Transfer switches are UL listed and have CSA and IBC certifications available.

Remote Monitoring and Control: Advanced transfer switches allow operators to monitor the status of the transfer switch and generator remotely.
