Automatic transfer switch controls, otherwise called automatic transfer switches, are used in industries that require continuous contact with electricity. Some of the more common uses for these are in the production of electric energy for industrial plants to power their operations and appliances. Other examples of uses include the transfer of alternating current from an alternating current power plant to a generator for emergency use. Industrial generators can also be switched on automatically in case of an outage in your local power grid. The benefits are numerous when you have an automatic switch system that is safe, reliable, and allows for a higher degree of safety for the workers. If you are in need of a reliable and safe automatic transfer switch control, MTS power products is your go-to place for all your power needs.
In any of these cases, it is important that there is a constant source of emergency power for your equipment. You don’t want to risk losing production because you didn’t take the time to consider emergency transfer switch controls or emergency generator switches. An automatic transfer switch can mean the difference between sustaining damage to your equipment and having to spend more money on repairs or just not operating as well as you could. These systems are also extremely useful for providing temporary power in the event that your main power grid goes down.
If you have a large factory in your area that has a lot of electrical work going on at any one time, you know that without some type of backup or standby power system you can be in big trouble. An automatic transfer switch control shall provide you with a safe way to keep the production going while at the same time protecting the circuit breakers from damage. In the worst case scenario, you can lose the ability to produce as a result of damage to the equipment. As most factories these days are built with high levels of technology and equipment, something bad can happen at any moment. It is important that you have reliable automatic transfer switches and circuit breakers to help them get through these moments in time with minimum risk to your business.
Many times automatic transfer switch controls and circuit breaker systems are installed to protect critical equipment from damage. For example, you might have a single circuit breaker for a large factory and a separate one for each piece of machinery. The system might go out, but the main plant is still operational. Having visual inspection of your equipment often helps you detect problems before they become too serious. This will allow you to make the necessary adjustments before your machine becomes inoperable.
In addition to visual inspection, you need to have a good understanding of how each of your equipment operates. This is especially important in the case of an automatic transfer switch and a normal source of electric supply. A normal source of electric current should operate just like it should. However, there are times when there are fluctuations in the voltage, current, or load which can cause equipment to malfunction. If this occurs, the automatic transfer switch and a normal source of power should be able to continue operating normally.
For most industrial applications, however, the automatic switch and a normal source of power are not adequate to provide power protection in the case of a malfunctioning device. A redundant circuit breaker and a protective device such as a bypass-isolation switch must be used. A redundant circuit breaker is installed between the normal source of power and the bypassed or isolated circuit. A protective device such as a bypass-isolation switch is installed between the bypassed or isolated circuit and the primary circuit of the switching equipment.
