Double Throw Transfer Switch Wiring Diagram. This electrical wiring question came from Glenn in Florida. A wiring diagram is a simplified traditional pictorial representation of an electrical circuit.
It shows the components of the circuit as simplified shapes and the knack and signal contacts amid the devices. Double throw switches are intended to transfer loads from one power source to another. Manual transfer switch panels are usually mounted within a few feet of a homes main service panel.
An application for this switch is for reversing a direct current DC electrical motor.
Thank you for your electrical wiring questions. Eatons double-throw safety switches include two interlocked switches with a common connection used to transfer service from a normal power source to an alternative source or to switch from one load circuit to another. An application for this switch is for reversing a direct current DC electrical motor. In its most basic form a transfer switch for a 120240V single-phase service is simply a double-pole double-throw switch of proper ampere rating with a middle off position Fig.
