What is an automatic transfer switch? A transfer switch is a panel that is wired into the premises electrical distribution system to allow a generator to be used. It detects a loss in power for the mains and initiates the generator to start up and provide power. It then waits until the power from the mains returns to normal. It then puts your premises back onto mains power and signals the generator to cool down and return to standby mode. So you will easily to find that an auto transfer switch (ATS) is often installed where a backup generator is located. Through this, the generator set can provide temporary electrical power if the utility source fails.

Actually, if the customer has the distribution board (DB) of his own, our ATS cabinet still can coordinate with his DB for the auto transfer between the main power and genset power.
