Various systems that are power sensitive may require multiple power sources. Multiple power sources may be primary and secondary power grid connections, generators, battery backup systems and/or auxiliary power units. Common power sensitive systems include information technology, computer systems, server systems, medical devices and hospital systems. This multiple source transfer system does not provide a dedicated preferred source and allows for maintenance while keeping a primary load connected. The multiple source transfer system may be a Medium Voltage Transfer Pair for selection between two sources automatically by use of a programmable logic controller (PLC). A load break junction assembly is included to allow for disconnection of incoming sources during maintenance and physically isolating the control cabinet or switching system.
