Overview

Caterpillar offers standard Switchgear products, which can support a wide variety of applications, or provide a custom designed system to meet your specific project needs. The Emergency Transfer and Load management (XLM) product supports transfer between the utility source and generator bus and allows for sustained parallel operation with the utility for load management applications. Caterpillar Standard Switchgear products provide a solution able to combine all elements of monitoring and control for Caterpillar generator sets in a single-source package. Caterpillar also designs and manufacturers custom switchgear to meet specific customer requirements and functionality.
