THE TOROMONT DIFFERENCE

LEADING EXPERTISE

With a wide network of experts and
technicians, Toromont Power Systems can
usually offer faster turnaround time than
thecompetition, without compromising
quality.

YOUR SYSTEM, YOUR CHOICE

Our controls are compatible with all
switchgear manufacturers, including
Schneider, Eaton and CSL. And if standard
options don’t meet your needs, we also
manufacture our own custom switchgear
in our Montreal facility.

READY FOR ANYTHING

Our controls and switchgear are ideal for a
variety of applications, including standby
power, prime power, mission critical power,
CHP and retrofits. And with 24 locations
across Eastern Canada, our team is always
standing by.

CONTROLS

Standard or customized HMI's to meet your power requirements

toromont control systems

Whether you need standard controls to
supplement an existing proprietary system or
customized controls for complex synchronization
and load sharing, we have you covered.

COMPATIBILITY
Toromont Power Systems controls are
vendor-neutral (compatible with all power
envelope manufacturers) and suitable for all
applications, including data centers, hospitals,
airports, communications, retrofits, microgrids
and CHP.
Our controls can also be retrofit to older systems,
or installed as tap boxes for quick-connect
integration.

COMBINED HEAT & POWER (CHP) CONTROLS
Toromont Power Systems has standardized and
custom controls to manage your combined heat
and power applications. Features include heat
recover skids, MCC control and balance of plants.

SCALABILITY
The modular design allows you to grow and scale
your power systems requirements with the needs
of your business operations.

DEAD FIELD PARALLELING
For applications where it is critical to expedite the
paralleling of multiple generators onto a common
bus, dead field paralleling can bring multiple
generators online within 10 seconds.

HMI CUSTOMIZATION
Toromont Power Systems controls can provide a
variety of HMI experiences, including:
• View data from the various components (UPS,
ATS, generator set, load banks, etc.) located
throughout the facility
• Integrate with building management system
(BMS)
• System level logging, trending and reporting
with built-in state-of-the-art fault alerts

SWITCHGEAR

Protection, reliability & safety for any size power system



Toromont Power Systems switchgear provides
industry-leading power generation, distribution and
control.

Our modular design gives you unmatched flexibility
and scalability, as components can be added and
configured to support multiple power sources and
loads. And we can work with any manufacturer.

The module houses genset motorized circuit
breakers, load take-off lugs or bussing, a low
voltage segregated compartment for auto and
manual synchronizing control, as well as relays and
PLC.
All available modules are built to CSA standards.
