Bypass Isolation Transfer Switches
The bypass isolation switch is designed for applications where maintenance, inspection and testing must be performed while maintaining continuous power to the load. This is typically required in critical life support systems and standby power situations calling for safe system maintenance with no power disruptions.
The unique Eaton design includes separation between control and power components. The ATS and Bypass isolation contactors are mounted in separate compartments with protective barriers between them which prevents the possibility of contact with the rear-mounted power connections to the contactors.
The Magnum Transfer Switch design may be applied to such applications ranging from 200 amperes up to 5000 amperes. It is possible to use the Magnum design bypass section for a full load transfer to the alternate source without being hindered by interlocking used on some contactor-type designs.
