• The automatic transfer switch monitors incoming voltage from the utility line.
• When utility power is interrupted, the automatic transfer switch immediately senses the problem and signals the generator to start.
• The automatic transfer switch then safely closes off the utility line and simultaneously opens a new power line from the generator.
• Within seconds your home standby system begins supplying electricity to your critical emergency circuits. The transfer switch continues to monitor the utility line conditions.
• When the automatic transfer switch senses the utility voltage has returned at a steady state it re-transfers the electrical load back to the utility line and resumes monitoring for future utility loss. The engine continues to run for a cool down period of several minutes while the entire system stands ready for the next power outage.
Pre-packaged system includes:
• Automatic transfer switch with built-in load center
• 30 ft., 5 ft. & 2 ft. pre-wired conduits
• Outdoor connection box
• Flexible fuel line
• Composite mounting pad

GUARDIAN vs. Competition
Whisper-Test™ feature - reduces noise by 50% during the generator’s weekly self-test cycle. The generator starts up and operates at a reduced speed, lowering sound output by as much as 12 decibels for units that normally run at higher speeds under load. This allows for near silent operation in test mode and satisfies all know sound ordinances.
dB(A): Subjective loudness of a sound doubles for every 10 decibel increase
