Automatic Transfer Switches

What are automatic transfer switches?

Automatic transfer switches (ATS) act as the brain of your emergency power source. Automatic transfer switches send signals to your generator to start when a planned or unplanned power outage occurs, as it senses power loss. The ability to recover from a power outage depends on the dependability of your transfer switches. Automatic transfer switches are a critical component in power outages and allows for a smooth load transfer from utility to an emergency source such as your generator, and back again. GenCare is your one stop shop for almost any type of transfer switch.

How do Automatic Transfer Switches Work?

The auto transfer switch connects the power load between the utility power and the generator power. When a power outage occurs, the transfer switch notifies the generator to power on. An automatic transfer switch provides an electrical interlock to avoid back feeding. An ATS ensures you have power when you need it most.

Benefits of Automatic Transfer Switches

One the many benefits that automatic transfer switches provide are the automatic transfer of power to your generator in the event of a power outage with no manual transferring or routing required. There are no downsides to leveraging an automatic transfer switch as it offers reliability when you need it most during an emergency.
