Designed by Cummins experts, the revolutionary PowerCommand® 80 control is a single integrated control All functionalities can easily be implemented as needed without add-on hardware nor extra modules needed.



Innovative design of the High Endurance Mechanism and Blow-on Technology

The High Endurance Mechanism (HEM) is designed to minimize the contact damage during a fault condition, thus retaining its capacity to carry up to 100% of its rated load.   Electromagnetic forces developed during a fault cause a conventional transfer switch’s contacts to blow open, producing destructive arcing that often results in extensive internal damage to the switch.

Typically, after a conventional switch experiences a fault, its contacts, arc chutes and in some cases, its control will need replacing.  However, the blow-on Technologies utilized by the HEM uses the same electromagnetic energy to hold the contacts closed during a fault, practically eliminating arcing, contact damage, and performance degradation. When a fault occurs, electromagnetic fields develop around moving and stationary contact arms. The HEM utilizes  the resulting electromagnetic forces to firmly hold the contacts together. The higher the fault current the greater the force. With the high short-time ratings of this innovative blow-on technology, costly repairs or inconvenient downtime can be minimized after a fault.



PowerCommand® 80 Transfer Switch Control 

The revolutionary PowerCommand® 80 Transfer Switch Control delivers unrivaled adaptability, connectivity and intelligence. Designed by Cummins Power Generation experts, the PowerCommand® 80 is a single integrated control - no extra modules are need. All functionalities can easily be implemented as needed without add-on hardware. In addition, the control features a highly customizable customer inputs/outputs which can be tailored to suit a wide range of application requirements.


Easy to navigate HMI

The control human machine interface (HMI) includes a LED backlit LCD display with tactile-feel soft-switches for easy operation and screen navigation. All data on the control can be viewed by scrolling through screens with the navigation keys. Forward and backward navigation functionality is also provided. The control displays the current active fault, fault occurrences and time-ordered history of the 256 previous faults with respect to Real Time Clock Stamp and Engine Running Time.



Stay in touch with critical data with the PowerCommand Transfer Switch Remote Annunciator

The PowerCommand Transfer Switch Remote Annunciator allows you to remotely monitor up to eight X-Series transfer switches on one easy-to-read color LCD screen.

At a glance, you will know the transfer switch position, source availability, and whether there are active events or alerts.

An intuitive user interface provides you access to additional information for each transfer switch, including source voltage, frequency, and alert logs and command functions to initiate tests, override transfer timers, and load shed remotely.
