An automatic transfer switch is an electrical device that switches a load between two sources as soon as it senses a loss of power. These units are particularly useful on backup generators as they will start up as soon as the main power source fails. The automatic transfer switch can also start a backup generator if it senses voltage fluctuations. It will automatically disconnect the main power supply when the generator switches on. When the power comes back on the automatic transfer switch will turn the generator back off. Some transfer switches can prioritise certain circuits that are essential and route the power to them only. The switch can be set by the user to comfortable cover all their requirements.
Technical specifications of YES1-GP 1000AMP 3-POLE Automatic Changeover Switch
The conventional current rating of the unit is 1000 Amps. The automatic transfer switch will work in temperatures of between -5 degrees Celsius and 40 degrees Celsius. I should not be used in an area where there are volatile chemicals or gases that are combustible. There is a large range of these units with sizes starting at 125 Amp and going up to 4000 Amp. The higher the Amps are the bigger the unit normally is. The electrician that installs the unit will choose it to suit the generator set that it will be attached to.
Benefits of using the YES1-GP 1000AMP 3-POLE Automatic Changeover Switch
This unit will make sure you are never without critical power no matter the time of day or night. This ATS can prioritise critical power systems and if it is too small to run the entire power system it can be directed to make sure that the important electrical systems are adequately supplied with power, for instance, lights, cooling and heating systems and essential equipment. Whether there is an operator on duty or not the automatic transfer switch will turn the generators on and transfer the power into the system and when power is resumed it will turn off the generator and change the power source.
