Automatic Transfer Switches

Kohler’s new generation of transfer switches are loaded with sophisticated technologies. They have advanced design features for rapid transfer of power to critical-load applications. When the electricity goes down, power is transferred from the standby system within one-sixth of a second, allowing you to continue functioning as normal. KOHLER® transfer switches are available with:

  • Bypass-isolation, service-entrance, non-automatic and automatic configurations
  • 30 to 4000 amps in open, programmed and closed-transition operating modes
  • Simple integrated communication interface using an ethernet or LAN line
  • UL 1008 Listed, CSA and IBC Seismic Certified

The KOHLER® Decision-Maker™ Paralleling System offers a key feature that other switchgear systems don’t: 100% integration. The switchgear can be custom-engineered for emergency or prime power, and interruptible- rate or peak-shaving applications.

Power Systems West has the ability to design a complete, integrated power system with one source of responsibility.

KOHLER® Switchgear is designed for:

  • North American and international specifications
  • Emergency standby or prime power installations
  • Interruptible rate or peak shaving applications
  • Wall and floor mounted configurations
