Automatic Source Transfer on Loss of Voltage

In 1987 G&W Electric introduced the first standalone Automatic Transfer Switch providing reliable power to critical loads on a loss of voltage. Since then we have delivered numerous solutions for various power reconfiguration applications including Preferred/Alternate, Main/Tie/Main, and multisource Load Shedding. Our Automatic Source Transfer solutions utilize padmount and underground switches as well as overhead reclosers and can include peer-to-peer communication for high speed transfers and synchronized returns. But even without any communication, our customized solutions can help you improve power availability and reliability.

Talk to your G&W Electric sales representative about a LaZer Automation pilot project. Start small with a proof of concept and gain support internally. You can grow from there as all LaZer solutions are scalable.

Schedule a free consulting meeting with a LaZer Automation team member to take a look at a single-line diagram for circuits with poor performance or circuits with critical loads and discuss what LaZer Automation can do for you.
