Diesel Generator Transfer Switches

Why do I need a Transfer Switch?

Generator transfer switches are needed when an electric generator is used as a source of backup power in a home or business. The switch functions by allowing the user to choose the source of the power: either the generator or directly from the commercial power supply company. When the switch is engaged, it draws power only from the generator; by using only generator power, you limit commercial power consumption.

 

Transfer switches are the only recognized safe alternative for connecting an electrical load to the generator for an entire house or business. Putting an electric industrial generator into the system without any kind of switch limiting its use could prove to be disastrous to the generator itself and to everything it powers. The potential for dangerous power surges would increase significantly in such a scenario.
