Transfer switch with back up circuits
Siemens offers 4 models of automatic transfer switches with
back up circuits. These panels provide transfer capability to
a select number of critical circuits, as opposed to the entire
house. For the chosen critical circuits, the conductors in
the main house panel are removed from the breaker and
connected with wire nuts to the prewired conductors
on the transfer switch.

SL Type Transfer Switches
“SL” Type transfer switches
Transfer switches provide the
mechanism for transferring power
between utility and generator
service. Engineered with Digital Load
Management (DLM) technology, 100400A single phase SL Type transfer
switches have the ability to cycle on
and off two air conditioners without
adding additional components,
allowing for a smaller generator to
cover more circuits than when paired
with a standard transfer switch.
Features and ratings
„ 100–800A
„ Outdoor NEMA 3R aluminum enclosure
„ Open transition
„ Compatible with Nexus controllers
„ Cover more circuits with
a smaller generator
„ Service rated and
non-service rated
„ Add additional individual DLM modules
(5937) and manage up to four more
large loads on single phase SL type
transfer switches
„ Cover every circuit when paired
with a higher kW generator
