The 100A 3-Pole ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) is a 3 pole single phase switch, which means it can only be used in conjunction with a single phase generator, up to 100 amps. The other major benefit of this particular transfer switch is it's dimensions. It is only 300mm x 300mm x 200mm, ensuring it can be placed easily in a convenient location near your consumer unit.
The ATS panel is modified and fitted with a 12v battery charger to keep the battery on your backup generator charged when it is not in use. Sometimes you can go months without having to use a backup generator, and the time it sits idle can run the battery down, so this slight modification is a welcomed addition to an already very appealing ATS system.
This ATS is compatible with a range of Hyundai 1500RPM diesel generators.
The ATS panel would be installed by your engineer in between the consumer unit and meter at your property. Then, the 20m communication cable is wired from the ATS panel, to your generator which can be situated up to 20metres away. This communication cable is what allows the ATS to turn the generator on and off. However, please note this package does not include mains cable (the cable which carries power from the generator). Mains cable needs to be specified by your electrician and sourced accordingly.
This package ensures that even when you are at work, on holiday or away from your home/office, in the event of a power cut your appliances stay on.
