The Eaton STS16A Power Transfer Switch is an ideal way to provide power redundancy to network equipment within a rack cabinet. The STS is an automatic transfer switch which can be supplied from two power sources. If one fails, the other powers the switch without interruption to the connected loads. Each STS16A power switch can be connected to multiple hardware loads at the same time. Using an STS16A reduces the need to invest in redundant power supplies within the connected loads (servers).
