Transfer Switch Inspection

Transfer Switch Inspection

Wheeler Power Systems employs more than 12 field technicians to serve our customers 24/7 and quick response and quality service is our number one goal. With employee safety being the most important aspect of our business and yours, Wheeler Machinery has taken the initiative to make sure our technicians are properly trained to work on many makes and models of automatic transfer switches (ATS) to include CAT, Zenith, ASCO, Onan and others. Technicians have completed Arc Flash training and are required to wear the appropriate PPE for each inspection and repair. This ensures that when Wheeler Machinery arrives on site we are providing electrical safety practices that are standard in our industry.

Wheeler Power Systems will perform the following inspection points below and take corrective action if any, as needed. Where applicable and when permitted by the customer, we will inspect the following items:
