Founded in 1982, Gen/Tran is the nation’s leading manufacturer of generator transfer switches for residential and small commercial standby power applications. A transfer switch makes using a generator more safe and convenient – no matter what size. The National Electrical Code mandates that a transfer device be installed with ALL standby power systems including portable generators. During a power outage, a transfer switch safely isolates those circuits using generator power from the rest of the house, so the danger of back feeding the electrical utility is eliminated. By installing a transfer switch with your load center and connecting a generator to the transfer switch, you can run selected appliances such as a furnace, well pump (which cannot be run with standard extension cords), sump pump, refrigerator, television, computer and more during a power outage, depending on the capacity of your generator.
