Recent changes to the National Electrical Code® (NEC) require the selective coordination of overcurrent protective devices at hospitals and other mission-critical facilities. Transfer switches with 30-cycle closing and withstand ratings dramatically simplify designing to that requirement.
With daily advances in information technology and other processes and services, the world is becoming a more complicated and power-hungry place. Many industries and services have become increasingly more dependent on a continuous, uninterrupted supply of electric power. However, a continually shrinking electric generation margin reduces the reliability of utility-provided power.

Russelectric® custom designs and manufactures power control and synchronizing switchgear systems in low and medium voltage ratings for single- and multi-unit on-site power generators. In addition to emergency power, system designs may include a variety of sophisticated control functions such as peak shaving, load curtailment, and utility paralleling for both open transition transfer and live-source closed transition transfer.
Because reliable electric power is required for proper operation of security equipment, the threat of terrorism makes any facility vulnerable to a loss of power. Russelectric® power control systems provide the emergency/backup power needed to keep critical security equipment up and running in the event of a loss of utility feed.
