“Power always brings with it responsibility.”

-Theodore Roosevelt
Greetings Everyone,

With the summer now in full swing, and with temperatures rising, it's the time of year when the copious use of air conditioning leads to blackouts. Losing power can be anything from a nuisance to life-threatening. For businesses, it almost always means money will be lost. In 2017 Delta Airlines estimated that they lost between $25 and $50 million during an 11-hour power outage at the Atlanta airport. For these reasons, many homes, businesses, facilities, and campuses have some form of a backup power system. Perhaps the most crucial component in any backup power scheme is the transfer switch that allows the load to be switched between two sources. It Seems to us that transfer switches are something that most electrical professionals--like you--will need sooner than later. That's why we manufacture and stock 600V manual transfer switches between 400 and 4000 Amp and stock a number of unused surplus and reconditioned automatic transfer switches. In other words, when you're looking for transfer switches ROMAC has you covered.

Let's get to the Hotwire, and our switches...

The switches monitor both power sources, signal generator set start up, automatically transfer power, and return the load to the primary power source once a stable utility is available. The fully integrated controller is designed for practical functionality, with LED indicators and digital push buttons for ease of operator use.
The Northeast Blackout of 2003
The most widespread power outage in North American history occurred August 14-28, 2003. The blackout affected an estimated 55 million people in central Ontario, Canada, and eight U.S. states. Transportation, communication, water supply, and industry were all interrupted due to this massive power outage. The incident also contributed to almost 100 deaths. What was the catalyst for this power catastrophe? A software bug.
