Russelectric has announced that it has extended the warranty on all its transfer switches and bypass/isolation switches sold for installation in the United States and Canada to five years for parts and labor. The extended warranty applies to transfer switch products only, including the RPTCS Automatic Transfer Switch Control and other switch accessories.  The enhanced warranty is being offered with no change in pricing and begins on the date of shipment.

Russelectric offers complete lines of UL tested, listed, and labeled (under UL 1008) 3-cycle and 30-cycle close- and withstand-rated transfer switches and bypass/isolation switches. The industry’s most extensive line of UL listed 30-cycle switches, Russelectric RTS-30 switches dramatically simplify selective coordination. Russelectric RTS-03 3-cycle switches offer the industry’s highest close and withstand ratings.  Both 3-cycle and 30-cycle switches are available for open- or closed-transition transfer. Bypass/isolation switches are available in load-break or no-load-break bypass. 

Open-transition switches are available with single or dual operators with positive mechanical interlocking. Ideal for applications involving high inductive loads, dual operator switches can be configured with an adjustable time delay between the opening of closed contacts and closing of open contacts to allow large motor loads to demagnetize before transfer, thereby avoiding a “bump” upon transfer. Ideal for sophisticated load shed control schemes, dual-operator switches are often used in generator paralleling systems.
