AUTOMATIC TRANSFER SWITCHES

TRANSFER SWITCHES

AUTOMATIC TRANSFER SWITCHES

As a part of the generator system, the transfer switch transfers the electrical load onto the generator when power fails. When utility voltage returns, the transfer switch safely returns circuit coverage back to the utility.

Distributed Load Center

Generac offers three models of automatic transfer switches for homeowners who choose to back up selected circuits rather than the entire house. Pre-wired load center models are available with a choice of 8, 10, 12, 14 or 16-circuits.

Generac makes installation easy and inexpensive.
All distributed load center models include:

  • 30 ft. pre-wired conduit for connecting the transfer switch to the external connection box
  • 2 ft. pre-wired conduit for moving circuits from the main panel to the transfer switch
  • Pre-wired external connection box with a weather-proof conduit for generator connections

PowerManager™ Load Shedding Transfer Switch

The PowerManager LTS is designed to allow the most efficient use of the generator by monitoring and managing the backed up selected and non-selected circuits. If the generator approaches overload condition, the non-selected circuits are cycled off, allowing the selected circuits to remain powered. This switch is designed to operate with the digital controls that are used on air-cooled and liquid-cooled generators from 17 kW through 48 kW.

  • Housed in an aluminum NEMA 3R, outdoor rated enclosure
  • Service entrance rated at 200 Amps with built-in 16 circuit priority load center
  • Main contactor protects the selected priority circuits while the secondary contactor protects the remaining, non-selected circuits located in the existing electrical panel
  • Cover is side hinged for easy access

RTS Transfer Switches

RTS transfer switches are designed for a wide variety of applications that controller and operates only with standby generators thru 60 kW. NEMA 3R (outdoor rated) enclosures are standard.

RTS-N (Single-Phase)

Use RTS-N models for custom installations or with applications that require a sub-panel.

  • 100, 200, or 400 Amp

RTS-E with Service Disconnect (Single-Phase)

Use RTS-E models with service disconnect for quick and easy installations. The transfer switch connects through the utility meter from outside.

  • 100, 200, or 400 Amp
  • Service-entrance rated and UL Listed (U.S. only)

 

 

THE GENREADY™ LOAD CENTER –

The future in generator installation

The GenReady Load Center simplifies the
generator system and installation and

maximizes customer savings. In addition,
advanced engineering creates the e
asiest
and most cost-effective installation of any
home standby
generator on the market. New home
construction, or renovations requiring electrical upgrades,
are the opportune ti
me to install a GenReady Load Center
and a Generac automatic home standby generator.

With a traditional generator installation, three boxes are
required: the main circ
uit panel, the automatic transfer switch,
and the emergency circuit panel.

The GenReady Load Center replaces the main circuit panel and incorporates an automatic transfer switch so all power
switching is handled within one unit. It becomes a
hybrid panel capable of separating out only the electrical circuits the homeowner chooses to back up during a power outage.

Features include:

  • 40 circuit capacity with the use of tandem breakers
  • Dimensions same as a standard 42-circuit main load center
  • Utilizes standard Siemens Load components
  • Compatible with generators rated up to 125 Amps/30 kW
The innovative GenReady load center combines
three boxes into one, saving space and money on
generator installations!

HTS Transfer Switches

(Single-Phase and Three-Phase)

HTS transfer switches, designed for simple monitoring,
operation and maintenance, are constructed to ensure superior
performance. The HTS is part of an integrated system and
operates only with Generac commercial-series generators
(70-150 kW) with the H-100 controller. All switch components are
front adjustable and removable for programming and servicing.
