The TRANSFER SWITCH is designed to take over automatic switching between different power sources: between a generator and the shore, or between an inverter and a generator, or between an inverter and the shore. The TRANSFER SWITCH has two inputs and one output and automatically transfer the available AC power to the output. It can be used with any Victron Energy inverter, the dependence of a capacity.
The TRANSFER SWITCH is situated between a generator or shore and inverter. If the voltage level or the frequency of the generator or the shore varies (input 1), then the TRANSFER SWITCH switches to the inverter (input 2). Once the generator or the shore supply has remained continuously stable, the TRANSFER SWITCH switches back (input 1) with a delay of approximately 10 seconds. In this way, the appliances are protected against damage from voltage drops. During transfer between one of the power sources (input 1 or input 2), the appliances are not supplied with power for a short time. Because of this, computers, electronic devices etc. Connected to this group might lose data. The TRANSFER SWITCH can be used with any type of inverter, but the best results, however, are obtained with an inverter from Victron Energy.
