    A generator uses a transfer switch that, within 60 seconds, disconnects the backup circuits sub-panel from the main panel and connects it to the generator. In the case of a whole house generator, the transfer switch connects the main panels to the generator. In a battery system, the inverter disconnects the sub-panel from the main panel, takes DC electricity from the battery bank, converts it to alternating AC current, and routes it to the backup circuits sub-panel, all within 1/50 of a second. In all cases once power is restored either the transfer switch or the inverter will again route power to the main panel and any sub-panels. Refer to the operating diagrams for each of the three systems under MAX OPTIONS.
