Static Transfer Switches
Static Transfer Switches for a Range of Applications
Static transfer switches ensure that when you have a power outage, your critical equipment keeps running.
The electrical switches transfer loads between different power sources - some types do this automatically, while others get run by an operator. Some types of switches, on top of doing the actual “switching,” also tell the backup generator to start running when the primary source of power is lost.
The equipment is applicable to a wide range of environments, ranging from residential, agricultural and light commercial applications to the critical power needs of healthcare, financial and data center facilities. In some facilities, switches need to be tested without interrupting power to the load - those will require bypass-isolation configurations. In some applications, integrated solutions are required - you’ll need transfer switch load panels, circuit breakers and voltage surge suppression pre-wired in compact packages.
Vertiv offers a range of manual and automatic transfer switches, from those needed by smaller facilities all the way to those required by critical applications.

We know data centers often represent multi-million dollar development projects and have significant annual operating budgets associated with them. But have you ever wondered how that investment translates into your annual or monthly cost to support 1 kW of compute capacity?
We are fast approaching the tenth anniversary of the iPhone and it is already hard to imagine how we coped without smartphones.
Report: The unprecedented capacity requirements of large social media, search, colocation and cloud companies is driving massive investments in data center development.
