Static Transfer Switches

Single & Three Phase STS Systems

BPC Automatic Static Transfer Switches (STS) enable automatic or manual transfer between two AC power supply sources, ensuring a transfer time of less than 1/4 of a cycle.

Static Transfer Switches ensure highest availability of the power supply to sensitive and critical applications. The installation of an STS ensures 2N architecture is achieved and allows loads with single feeds to always be supplied by the highest quality power. 

The use of transfer switches and 2N architecture increases the maintainability of the switch panels and upstream equipment.

  • Dual Source
  • Industrial
  • Reliable

The use of an STS within an electrical distribution system provides a means of secure protection against any potential disruption of the power supply, due to interruptions of the supply source or failure of distribution lines caused by environmental phenomena or human error.

The Static Transfer Switch provides a guaranteed means of switching between two alternative and independent power sources thus ensuring a continued supply of power to any critical load.

The switching can either be AUTOMATIC, should incoming supply fall outside the predefined window of operation (user-defined), or MANUAL, should an operator want to force switching between the two input supply sources from the mimic display panel or via a remote connection.
