Eaton STS 16 (Source Transfer Switch)
The Eaton STS 16 IEC is an affordable solution for customers willing to add power redundancy to high voltage networking equipment like switches and routers. This source transfer switch will power them from 2 different sources (typically the mains power and a UPS, or 2 UPSs). Should one power source fail, the alternate one will switch over with no interruption to the connected equipment. Eaton STS can be connected to multiple devices at the same time while saving the cost of expensive redundant power supplies.
