Questions & Answers for NDQ2A Series
What are the two types of automatic transfer switches?
There are two basic types of automatic transfer switches, circuit breaker and contactor. The circuit breaker type has two interlocked circuit breakers, so only one breaker can be closed at any anytime. The contactor type is a simpler design that is electrically operated and mechanically held.
How do automatic transfer switches work?
How Does an Automatic Transfer Switch Work? An automatic transfer switch, or ATS switch, connects your standby generator to your home. ...
