Whether you are home or away, the EmPower Automatic Home Generator System provides fully automatic protection from power outages. Advanced electronics continually monitor utility power. When an outage occurs, it starts the generator and automatically switches from utility power to generator power. Electrical power is restored without effort, in seconds. When utility power is restored, the system senses it, transfers service back to the utility, shuts down the generator and resumes monitoring. It's all automatic. No worries, no hassles. Assembled in the USA. Vanguard engine is made in JAPAN. This model supersedes the 1938/CHGEN.

Automatic Transfer Switches
Click to enlarge electrical diagram
All of our switches monitor utility and generator voltages and will automatically connect to the appropriate source of power. The 100 amp and 200 amp switches are capable of "whole house" power transfer in residential and small business applications. For whole house applications the switch amp rating must equal or exceed the utility service rating.
Each switch is custom made and dedicated exclusively for Briggs & Stratton Power Products Home Standby Generators, reducing overall cost and giving you exactly what you need for your home or small business.
These industrial grade component features a control panel with red and green LED lights indicating the power sources available, and two relay operated contacts that allow the user to manage external loads during a power outage. These are useful for shutting down loads that may be too large for the generator such as central air conditioning or heat pumps.
All switch models are solenoid-operated from utility or generator inputs and contain electrical interlock switches to eliminate the possibility of dangerous back feed to utility during an outage. Switches are listed to UL Standard 1008.
options using dropdown menus before pressing button...
