Two power sources? A double throw switch is the answer.
Sometimes you need a transfer switch to transfer electricity from one power source to another, and when that other source is not a generator, you’ll need a double throw switch. Double throw switches are used to handle heavier loads across industrial and commercial applications. Available in a variety of ratings ranging anywhere between 30A to 1200A, depending on whether it is a fused or non fusible switch, double throw safety switches can also switch two electrical loads between a single power source.
For all your industrial, heavy duty needs.
Double throw switches are available in double, triple, and four-pole models, all of which can be used as service equipment. These industrial switches are capable of switching, isolating and interrupting very large electrical loads. For safety purposes, they’re also outfitted with a large visible blade, and two open positions. The on position can be either up or down, with the off position being in the middle of the two.
It’s also important to note that double throw switches are manual switches, and must be switched on and off by an operator, unlike automatic generator switches, for example.
