Automatic Transfer Switches
An automatic transfer switch (ATS) transfers load power from the main power supply (Energex/Origin or similar) to your emergency back up generator supply when the mains power fails. An ATS controller senses the power interruption on the mains line and signals the backup generator to start. As soon as reliable generator power is available it is switched via the ATS to the load and the mains power is isolated. When the mains power is restored to normal, the ATS transfers load power back to the mains and shuts the generator down. All the above actions are carried out completely automatically and do not require any intervention by an operator. Automatic Transfer Switches require the use of an electric start generator and cannot be installed with a manual or recoil start generator, although transfer switches are available in manual form which are suitable for these manually started machines.
Generators with electrical start
What size generator do you need? Determine your power needs
The size of generator will depend on the total load of the equipment that you want to run on the generator at the same time. If the generator is to be used for back up only, then we recommend selecting only essential services to run off the generator - such as security systems, refrigerators, freezers, essential lights, TV's and computers. This will provide a more cost effective investment by utilising the portable generator necessary. Portable solutions will power your home appliances during blackouts, when you’re camping or outdoors, and/or tools on your job site. Portable generators can range from 900 to 10,000 watts.
