Automatic Transfer Switch
An automatic transfer switch (ATS) or inverter system with auto-start function is designed to work with the generator auto-start system which is usually a part of the generator controller system. The ATS panel is normally sized to match the service entrance panel amperage size or a special emergency panel (E-panel) created to operate special circuits that are needed during any power outage. The ATS operates with digital logic and a motorized breaker system. To activate the ATS system a two-wire open or closed low-voltage contact system is used and connected to the auto-start function on the generator controller.
