Generators come in many power ranges. As a business you will need to choose the generator or multiple generators that suit your power requirements. To effectively run this standby power supply an automatic transfer switch is needed. It must be large enough to handle the power and current the generators will produce. In the case of a power outage it will automatically start the generator and when it is running at constant speed it will switch the power from the mains supply to the standby supply. At the same time it will isolate the mains power from the system so that there is no feedback on the line. When the mains power is restored the automatic transfer switch will turn off the generators and reconnect to the mains supply.

It can work efficiently in temperatures of between -10 degrees Celsius and 50 degrees Celsius. It can be safely stored without damage at temperatures of between -20 degrees Celsius and 70 degrees Celsius. The transfer time is very fast being around 0.45 seconds.
Characteristics of the YES1-GP 100AMP 3-POLE Automatic Changeover Switch
This unit has passed the EMCIEC6100-4 electromagnetic compatibility test and is ISO9001:2008 compliant. This unit will make sure you are never without critical power no matter the time of day or night. This small ATS can prioritise critical power systems and if it is too small to run the entire power system it can be directed to make sure that the important electrical systems are adequately supplied with power, for instance, lights, cooling and heating systems and essential equipment. Whether there is an operator on duty or not the automatic transfer switch will turn the generators on and transfer the power into the system and when power is resumed it will turn off the generator and change the power source.
