Market challenges

With Power outages occurring, even in high reliability distribution networks, leading to major incidents and losses on critical applications like Emergency systems, Healthcare facilities, Server rooms and Production lines to name a few, the need for more Reliable, Secure, Robust, Durable, Flexible and Adaptable Manual Transfer Switches have become more critical than ever before.



The New SIRCOVER brings to fore all of these crucial features, which include an Increased Terminal Clearance, with Enhanced Termination capacity through integrated spreaders, that enables secure Aluminium termination, as well as Interphase barriers for added operations safety and an ergonomic Retrofit solution for our COS legacy range. Fully compliant to IEC 60947-6-1 class PC, the most specified class worldwide, SIRCOVER manually operated transfer switches provide on-load transfer between two sources for any low voltage power circuit, as well as safety isolation by double breaking per pole. There are 2 ranges in the series, SIRCOVER for open transition switching (I-0-II) available in 4 pole, from 63 to 3200 A and the enhanced features are applicable from 125 to CD 800 A ratings. Another range SIRCOVER Bypass, the combination of three interlocked load break switches provides 3+6 or 4+8 poles for bypass applications.


Tested and proven with a high durability and short-circuit withstand Icw, the New SIRCOVER is engineered to self-clean its contacts with minimal wear and tear and to retain its performance with zero maintenance cost. It also facilitates replacement of Old Changeover switches (COS) with New SIRCOVER by using Retrofit kit.
