How It Works

It’s easier than you think. And here’s some more good news: you won’t lift a finger. Everything’s automatic.

Before the power goes out

Your automatic transfer switch (ATS) monitors the electricity coming from the utility. It's working 24/7 to protect your business.

The power goes out.

When the power fails or drops below an acceptable level (brownout), the ATS signals the generator to start. In seconds, the ATS transfers your power from the utility to the generator.
