The automatic standby generator is a permanently installed emergency generator system. It is designed to automatically furnish electrical power to preselected circuits that supply lighting, heating and cooling, appliances, and water in a home. An automatic transfer switch (ATS) monitors the utility power and provides isolation between the utility power and generator. If the utility power fails, the ATS will send a signal to the generator set, activating the generator. The generator will supply emergency power to the ATS, and the ATS will transfer the connected distribution panel to the generator, powering up the emergency circuits. Upon return of utility power, the ATS will transfer the connected distribution panel back to line power and discontinue the start signal to the generator. The generator uses a home's natural gas or LP fuel system.

Winco Inc., 225 South Cordova Ave., Le Center, MN 56057; 800-234-8174; www.wincogen.com.
