241Open Transition Transfer Switch

Historically, standby power systems have used conventional double-throw transfer switches for shifting from one power source to another. These systems (sometimes referred to as "break before make") are the simplest arrangements, requiring no interface or coordination with and no protection from the power utility source, since there is never a possibility of interconnection. The obvious drawback to open-transition transfer switches is an inherent momentary power interruption to the load during transfer.
