The WTS automatic transfer switch ensures an uninterrupted power supply in electric installations. It switches to an alternative power supply when the primary source fails. To change into manual mode, the user slips the green sliding door aside, thus revealing the hand switch. At the same time, a box opens on the exterior, containing a handle for the hand switch. The open box reminds the user to replace the handle after use.
