This paper focused on the controlling and monitoring of AMF (Auto Mains Failure) S/M using PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers) and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data acquisition system). Continuity in the power supply is an essential thing, especially in health sectors where ventilators are needed to maintain a person’s life and even discontinuity or interruptions in power pause a threat to life and property. So uninterruptible power supply is both essential and vital for many industrial sectors, day-to-day works, health sectors and much more. Earlier, the changeover from one source of supply to another was done manually which was time-consuming and even caused errors. With the advent of ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch), there is an ease of switching from one source to another. With the integration of PLC and SCADA, this changeover was made easy and one can remotely control the entire system.
