During an outage, the transfer switch works with your standby generator to switch the power source. So you and your family can stay safe, powered and connected.
Transfer Switches to go with your Home Standby Generator
Transfer switches make it possible to switch between utility and generator power. Depending upon the application, the transfer switch will either work automatically with your Home Standby Generator, or manually with a portable Generator.
Don't rely only on the uncertainty of the grid to protect your home. With a standby generator, power is always ready, whether you are home or not, the power will always be on.
KEEP THE DINNER PARTY GOING

HOW IT WORKS
The standby generator works simultaneously with the automatic transfer switch to continuously monitor the utility power. When the transfer switch detects a loss of power from the grid, it sends a signal to the generator to start providing emergency power to the home. When utility power is restored, the standby generator stops and shuts down automatically and returns to standby mode, ready for the next outage.
