This comparatively compact unit can be trusted to function efficiently as it is manufactured from the highest quality materials. It has been designed as a manual switch which means that unlike the automatic transfer switch this switch must be triggered by the user when required. There are many businesses that operate only during the day and only require back up power during work hours. With the automatic transfer switch it will operate round the clock and if the power fails during the night it could have the generator running for no purpose and wasting fuel. The manual transfer switch allows the user total control over power flow. It is simple and easy to install and operate and requires almost no maintenance.
