What is an ats panel automatic transfer switch

The ATS panel or automatic transfer switch panel is used with the backup generator to automatically switch between the main power supply and the generator in the event of a power failure or outage.

The ATS panel ensures that you do not need to manually switch to a backup power source, such as a backup generator, in the event of a power outage. The ATS will automatically switch to another power supply, reducing the risk of data loss, power equipment damage, or service or facility disruption.

The ATS panel monitors the input AC power supply so that in the event of a power outage or outage, the power load can be transferred to the backup generator. When the power is restored, the ATS switch restores the building to the mains supply and shuts down the backup generator.


Use an automatic conversion panel for security reasons

In any generator project with mains supply, automatic transfer switches are installed to protect data and electrical equipment and to ensure automatic and safe transfer of electrical load. The fact that the process is done automatically prevents the risk of human error that could have fatal consequences.

ATS - Prevents power outages

The advantage of the automatic system over the manual system is that the ATS panel can move the power load without any manual operation, thus avoiding the problem of power outage. Automatic transfer switches and associated control systems sense mains supply problems and activate backup generators in the event of a failure.

Without ATS panels, agencies would have to manually convert power to generators, so the power supply would be disrupted for longer. They will also rely on having the right engineers to do the job.

ATS Panel Advantages

While a manual panel may be a cheaper option, there is no doubt that the benefits of choosing an ATS outweigh the costs.

Avoid the hassle of turning on the system when the main power fails and you need a generator

Avoid manually starting the generator

When the power goes out, no one needs to be stationed nearby to start the generators

Enjoy automatic power recovery in seconds!

Protection requires basic electrical hardware that is powered continuously and relies on backup generators.

What is the difference between ATS and AMF?

The Automatic transfer switch (ATS) and Automatic Mains Failure (AMF) panels, which both switch electrical loads from normal supply to backup generator supply and back to mains supply when needed, are really just different terms for the same thing.
