Briggs & Stratton Automatic Transfer Switches

Briggs and Stratton has their engines in everything from lawnmowers to snow blowers. They decided to take their top notch technology and turn it into a generator that can give you the same reliability. Their units come in the 8kw, 10kw, 12kw, 16kw, and 20kw ranges. There are two very unique things that they do with their generators. The first would be how they have the exhaust flow differently than most. On a typical unit it goes from intake on the right to exhaust on the left. Briggs decided to bring the intake in through the back and exhaust the unit through the front. Other than the unique designing of the generator they have also designed the transfer switch to stand out from the competition.

When it comes to transfer switches the main concept is the same. It’s a way to protect your home by not allowing your generator and utility to both power the home at the same time. The circuited switches are just for picking a couple of emergency circuits. When you lose power those pre-chosen circuits are the only items in the home that will have access to the power supplied by the generator. Where Briggs truly shines is in their whole house transfer switches. What they have done is created a system known as the Symphony II that is more than mere load-shedding. It still monitors loads the same way a normal load-shed device would, but it doesn’t shed the item. If the Symphony II senses that there isn’t enough power it completely stops the item from coming on until there is enough power for it to run. That’s something special because let’s say you want to go with a smaller generator and are afraid of overloading it, well with the Symphony II that wouldn’t be an issue since any excessive loads wouldn’t be allowed to have power.
