AUTOMATIC TRANSFER SWITCHES
When buying or setting up a diesel generator, a generator switch is an important tool. An automatic transfer switch is an absolute necessity when connecting a generator to a building. It provides a way to switch between electrical sources without a loss of power that could potentially damage or even completely disable data devices, telecommunications systems, or any other power dependent service or device.
Generator transfer switches are used in hospitals, banks, and in businesses of all sizes to protect vital information and to ensure steady power generation when switching to generator power. In these industries, even a slight interruption between electrical sources and the load can be disastrous. A transfer switch effectively guards against this possibility, as an automatic transfer switch enables a completely instantaneous change to generator power.
Generator transfer switches vary in their features and usability. A business's generator transfer switch should be of extremely high quality since a generator switch serves as a vital component of power systems. For a high quality generator transfer switch designed specifically for high quality diesel generators, we recommend using an ASCO automatic transfer switch.
There are a number of advantages to using an ASCO automatic transfer switch, which is why the company is so highly regarded in the generator industry. Each ASCO auto transfer switch comes with simple controls that are easy for first-time users to operate, with bright lamps indicating each switch's position and all necessary controls for day-to-day operation presented on the front panel. Controls are both adjustable and removable, allowing for convenient serviceability. ASCO generator transfer switches are UL listed by Underwriters Laboratories and CSA certified by the Canadian Standards Association. They're extremely safe and easy to monitor. A transfer switch is a vital part of any business or organization's power system and an ASCO auto transfer switch is a perfect buy for securing a steady, manageable power source for any building.
