Transfer Switches are the Brains Behind the Power

- Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Generac transfer switches make it possible to switch between utility and generator power. Depending upon the application, the transfer switch will either work automatically or manually.

PORTABLE GENERATOR TRANSFER SWITCHES

Safely deliver the full power of your portable generator to your home's electrical system with a Generac manual transfer switch. Never run an extension cord from your portable generator to your individual appliances again.

BUSINESS STANDBY TRANSFER SWITCHES

Automatically transfer power from a permanently installed standby generator during a power outage, or manually deliver the power of a mobile generator into your facility for temporary use.

Generac offers a full line of Industrial Transfer Switches to meet varying needs from light industrial applications all the way to the most demanding critical installations. All Generac switches offer contacts that are silver composite which resists pitting or burning, ultimately leading to longer life and the reliability you expect. These switches are ISO 9000 certified, meet all relevant NEC codes, and are rated for full load transfers in critical operating, emergency, legally required, and optional power systems. Generac’s flexible platforms offer a variety of switching technologies for customized solutions to meet any project needs.

- Monday, July 13, 2020

Is your business going green? You may want to check out the generator made for renewable energy, including solar power or other remote applications. The KOHLER 6VSG battery-charging generator efficiently charges battery banks when renewable energy sources can't keep up with demand. If your battery charge drops below a pre-set level, the 6VSG charges it automatically.

  • Economical.
  • The 6VSG is fueled by clean, affordable natural gas or liquid propane (LPG).

  • TCan be used for industrial battery bus support to reduce the size of battery banks
  • TGenerator can maintain batteries directly without an expensive converter or monitoring equipment
