ATS ATC Breaker / Contactor

Caterpillar and your local Cat® Dealer are ready for all your power generation demands. From diesel and gas generator sets to uninterruptible power supplies, automatic transfer switches and electrical switchgear, our experienced worldwide dealer network can deliver the power systems and support you need.

ATC Contactor-Based Automatic Transfer Switch


Cat® transfer switches are designed for a variety of standby power applications. They provide flexibility, reliability and value in a compact package. The open and delayed transition contactor-based Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) provides fully functioning transfer in Applications where a momentary loss of power is acceptable during transfer and retransfers between normal and emergency power supply.

The closed transition contactor-based ATS is designed to Meet application requirements where emergency back up power is required with no momentary loss of power by connecting both sources before the transfer occurs. Closed transition also permits periodic testing of the emergency power source without interrupting power to the loads.
