  • I have had the pleasure of working closely with Electro-Motion on my fire pumps and emergency generator. They correct problems on the spot and report on anything which may need to be corrected in the future, keeping equipment in top working order saves us all in emergency repairs and costly down time.

    Thermal Scans: The Next Best Thing to ATS Maintenance

    May 27, 2020

    Your Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) is 50% of your Emergency Power Standby System and -- like your generator set -- it is critical and needs to be maintained. In fact, all ATS manufacturers recommend an annual maintenance. NFPA110 agrees with the manufacturers and also calls for an annual transfer switch maintenance.

    Due to the nature of ATS maintenance, we understand that for some businesses it simply isn't a viable option. While nothing can replace proper maintenance to give you peace of mind that your Automatic Transfer Switch will function when it needs to, we highly recommend an ATS Thermal Scan. This service:

    • Causes no power interrruption to the loads carried by the transfer switch
    • Identifies potential hot spots and areas of concern
    • Provides a report with pictures of the conditions inside the transfer switch

    While this does NOT replace the annual Automatic Transfer Switch Maintenance recommended by NFPA110, our ATS Thermal Scan is the next best option for servicing your Automatic Transfer Switch -- a critical component of your emergency standby power system.

    Call Electro-Motion's service department now at 650-321-6169 now to schedule your ATS Thermal Scan.
