Emerson Network Power, better known as ASCO, has a wide variety of products from fire pumps to UPS systems. We’ve chosen to handle their residential and commercial transfer switches because of how reliable they are. As you’ve probably noticed we sell a lot of different generators, so, we’ve chosen to offer their products because ASCO transfer switches are universally compatible with any two-wire start generator. Both models have different advantages so we’ll break them into two and give you a brief overview on both of them. As with everything that we offer it is recommended that you speak with an electrician first before making a purchase, especially since ASCO transfer switches are special order and therefore not returnable.
ASCO 185 Series Residential Transfer Switches: The most common section of our ASCO transfer switches would surely be the residential 185 series. This section is specifically for generators that tend to be used in residential applications. It has the standard two-wire start and is offered in an outdoor or indoor version for the enclosure. There is also the option to have either a service entrance or non-service entrance model depending upon your needs for the installation. The biggest advantage with the residential series is going to be within the physical size of the unit. ASCO took most of the things that they didn’t feel were necessary and removed them to make this switch as compact as possible. It still has all of the things you’ll need to safely transfer your service back and forth between utility and generator power. Just keep in mind that even though this is technically a residential section that they can be used for light commercial purposes.
ASCO 300 Series Commercial Transfer Switches: The ASCO 300 series is the complete opposite of its residential counterpart. All of the transfer switches are geared more towards commercial applications. You’ll get added features like the ability to set up a time delay in the event of power loss or you can exercise the unit with/without a load weekly. To your average home owner that might not matter, but for a business it might be important to delay the starting of a unit. The transfer switches themselves are also significantly bigger so that they can accommodate the extra features of the commercial series. You’ll have the same universal compatibility as well as the two-wire start capabilities. The truly unique thing that this series offers lies with the three phase transfer switches. Most of the time when you are installing a three phase transfer switch you’ll have to install your own disconnect. That’s because your typical manufacturer doesn’t offer a three phase transfer switch that is service entrance rated. ASCO, however, is one of the few companies that offers a three phase service entrance transfer switch at an affordable price. Not only can you get them in the service entrance or non-service entrance models, you can also select what voltage you want them at and if you want the switch to be indoor or outdoor rated.
