How Do AMF Panels Work? From Powercut to Power Back in an Instant
Have you ever wondered how in the event of mains failure Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Standby Generators reinstate power? Automatic Mains Failure (AMF) panels, also referred to as an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) are the key. Monitoring a building’s incoming AC mains supply, AMF panels instantaneously activate the standby generator when mains power fails, automatically transferring a building’s load from the mains power supply to the backup generator after about a 15 second warm up.
By the time the mains power supply is reinstated, the AMF panel controls a return to the mains supply, shutting down the generator after a cooling run. Without AMF panels, organisations would have to manually changeover from mains to generator and therefore suffer a longer break in electricity and depend on personnel being available to carry out this task.
AMF panels ensure that the break in the switchover to UPS or standby generators is kept to a minimum.
Here at shentongroup we design and manufacturer our own AMF panels, ensuring that the continuous power solutions we provide operate superfluously, linking ATS, UPS and standby generators in conjunction with shentongroup’s remote monitoring solutions.
