In order to cater for all different existing load requirements with economic factor consideration, tow models of Fam Auto Switch have been designed as following:
- Three phase to cater for 5 KW load in each phase in three different directions.
- Two phase to cater for 5 KW load in the two different direction.
- Single phase to cater for 2 K load in one direction.
