EMERGENCY?

OR INFORMATION


Over years of servicing every kind of UPS, we learned that UPS External Bypass Switches always lack in safety, functionality and ease of use. People hate to operate their bypass switch, because they are confusing, complicated and the safety features never work like they should.

For this reason, Tech Connect developed the X-Switch, a no-nonsense external bypass system that makes sense to everyone.  The X-Switch provides simple instructions and clear labeling to make using it safe and worry-free. With the premium X-Switch, you can transfer to bypass without ever dropping the critical load or damaging the UPS. We use vertically operated breakers, solenoid key release units (SKRU), a safety slide bar, optional guiding lights, model-specific instructions, a hinged main door to avoid accidents and a simple One-Line diagram.
