TRANSFER SWITCH FINDER UTILITY
Transfer Switches, How do they work and how do is size them?
Transfer Switches: The automatic transfer switch monitors utility and generator power. When utility power fails or is unsatisfactory, the transfer switch control starts the generator set, checks the generator speed and voltage output and transfers the load to the generator set. When utility power is restored the transfer switch automatically transfers back to utility power. The generator is allowed to cool down for a short period and then shuts down. The system instantly resets itself and is ready for the next power interruption. No action is required by the user.You must select a transfer switch that is the same size in amps (or larger) then your building service or sub-panel. The transfer switch must also be the same size in amps (or larger) than the maximum output of the generator you select. Example: If you have a 12 kW generator operating at 120 VAC single phase, (100 Amps) and a 200 amp building service you need a 200 Amp transfer switch or you must install a 100 Amp sub-panel. Transfer switches should be installed by a licensed electrician. For more information on transfer switches please see About Transfer Switches. Select a transfer switch to go with your generator from the drop down option list on this page under Product Options. The transfer switches shown are compatible with this generator. If you need additional transfer switch poles, auxiliary contacts or communications features see ASCO Transfer Switches.
