Transfer Switches

The transfer switch is the control center of all generator systems. Milbank transfer switches go well beyond the simple switch from utility power to generator power when the grid experiences an outage. These full–featured switches also include patented power management technologies that manage the power demands of up to two, 5–ton central air conditioners while protecting against power overload.

Milbank SynapSwitch® Transfer Switches

It’s here. Milbank is proud to introduce its new SynapSwitch® Automatic Transfer Switch.

Milbank Manual Transfer Switch

Operating a manual transfer switch can be a guessing game. Using Milbank's Manual Transfer Switch, our exclusive Learn Function memorizes the generator's capacity and provides the homeowner accurate power usage information. This helps determine available circuit loads and allows a user to monitor the portable generator's capacity to prevent overloading.
