What is a Transfer Switch?

A transfer switch, is an electrical device used to switch the power supply of equipment, a system, or a load from one source to another. It is primarily used to ensure the continuity of power supply in the event of a failure of the main source by automatically switching to a backup or auxiliary source.

Common Uses of Transfer Switches

Transfer switches are commonly used in:

  • Electrical distribution systems where a backup power supply (generator, battery, alternative source) is available to take over in case the main source (power grid) fails.
  • Critical environments such as hospitals, data centers, industrial facilities, etc., where power interruption can have severe consequences.

Types of Transfer Switches

Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS):

  • Function: Automated operation for optimal convenience.
  • Description: An automatic transfer switch, also known as a motorized transfer switch, operates automatically. It can be programmed for optimal operation, providing the advantage of requiring no human intervention. This ensures continuity of power supply without any concerns.

Manual Transfer Switch:

  • Function: Requires human intervention.
  • Description: A manual transfer switch requires a person to activate it. You must engage the device to ensure the proper functioning of the electricity using the backup power source. Although it involves manual intervention, a manual transfer switch remains a reliable solution to ensure uninterrupted power supply when needed.

Remote-Controlled Transfer Switch:

  • Function: No direct human intervention needed due to electrical control.
  • Description: A remote-controlled transfer switch operates without direct human intervention thanks to its electrically controlled operation. It is primarily used to supply high-power electrical devices requiring a minimum power of 400 amps.
