Residential manual transfer switches

A manual transfer switch is a device that is mounted next to the load centre in a home or small business. The manual transfer switch is used in conjunction with a portable back-up power generator and serves the purpose of turning selected circuits on and off during a power outage. The transfer switch panel allows you to start up a generator to restore power to critical circuits when utility power is not available.
