Product Overview

This pre-wired generator transfer switch provides a safe way to feed generator power to essential appliances or circuits during a power outage. It accommodates 6 to 10 household circuits, and can be used with any portable generator up to 7500-Watt (continuous). Required by the NEC, a transfer switch prevents dangerous back feeding onto utility lines. Installed like a subpanel in a basement, interior room or garage, this transfer switch will accommodate essentials like furnace, lights, refrigerator/freezer, kitchen, well pump, television, water heater, garage door opener, security system or home office. If your needs change, more breakers can be added to accommodate up to 10 circuits. If your installation is going to be inspected, this transfer switch accommodates Arc-Fault and GFCI breakers to meet the 2008 NEC. Watt meters help you balance loads to prolong generator life. Because it was designed with off-the-shelf circuit breakers you don't have to search high and low for replacements, and your installer can reconfigure the breaker combinations to suit your family's needs. Includes two 15-Amp 1-pole breakers, two 20-Amp 1-pole breakers, one 2-pole 20-Amp breaker and one 2-pole 30-Amp breaker. A 2-pole 60-Amp main breaker must be installed in existing load center (not included). Should be installed with a 30-Amp power inlet box to ensure generator safety. Easy to use. UL Listed in USA and Canada.

  • For portable generators up to 7500-Watt (continuous), 30 Amps
  • Allows you to safely feed generator power to 6-10 circuits during a power outage
  • Connects to existing load center like a subpanel, and includes all wires, conduit, fittings and wire nuts for installation in about an hour
  • Accommodates arc fault and GFCI breakers to meet 2008 NEC requirement
  • Dual Watt meters provided to help balance loads to prolong generator life
  • UL listed in US and Canada
  • 2-year warranty against mechanical defects

I will be using my Generac GP5500 portable gasoline generator. Please clarify the connection of the transfer switch to the panel. The panel is full but it contains a 60amp breaker used for the central AC, that I will not use in the generator mode, I could connect to it doubling with the AC connection but then I will have to turn off the AC before starting the Generator (a pain in the neck). The Generator itself has a resettable breaker at the L14-30 Outlet. I could also put a online breaker in the line from the generator to the transfer switch. Please advise.

Also please clarify how can you connect 10 circuits. It says can service 6-10 circuits but apparently the factory ships it for 6 circuits.

No ,you could NOT double up on your current A/C circuit in your main load panel. Shutting it off as you describe, would also shut off the power coming in from this transfer switch from the house and send it ONLY to your A/C unit.
In the photos attached it shows the 60A main panel breaker being mounted in the upper left of the transfer switch Not in the main panel as the description says is required. So

No ,you could NOT double up on your current A/C circuit in your main load panel. Shutting it off as you describe, would also shut off the power coming in from this transfer switch from the house and send it ONLY to your A/C unit.
In the photos attached it shows the 60A main panel breaker being mounted in the upper left of the transfer switch Not in the main panel as the description says is required. So either the description is wrong, or the picture. You decide
As far as how you can expand it to 10 circuits, look at the pictures. Count the circuit breakers. If you moved the 60A to your main panel, that would open up 2 more slots for a total of 10 in the transfer switch.
Good luck with your GP5500 which is only a 220/30A generator. So in all actuality you need a 30A main breaker NOT a 60A to protect it from being overloaded.
In my humble opinion you should never have more than a 30A breaker for the feed coming in off a portable generator. The generator cord is only good for 30A ( 25 if it is over 20' ), so why would you want to try and pull 60A through a cord rated for 30 from a generator only capable of supplying 30 ? You want a 15/15 dual 30 Amp breaker. Not a 30/30 60 amp unless you want to overload the generator and wiring. Read Less

Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm the configuration or wiring necessary for your personal installation via online correspondence. As for the switch's 60 amp breaker, it should be appropriately provided and applied by a certified electrician during installation. As we do not install the unit's that we manufacture, we would recommend contacting a certified electrician to ensure that your product's are installed properly for your backup power needs. Contacting a local electrician will also help to ensure that your product's are being installed in accordance with any local codes that may apply to your desired setup.
In regards to your inquiry regarding the transfer switch's circuits, please note that the dual circuits bestowed on the switch's front panel can be changed to single circuits to accommodate load expansion between 6 and 10 circuits. If you do not wish to run a particular load with the generator, then we would recommend ensuring that it is not connected to the portable generator or transfer switch when running on backup power. If you have any questions about product specifications, available documentation, or certified parties in your local area, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722), we have representatives available 24/7.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prewired 30 amp manual transfer install This unit was purchased to install with Generator system as required by local utility works. The installation manual was easy to read and follow. If someone who has some electrical skills this installation should be of no concern if you just follow the recommended procedures as written in the manual (though I will caution you as your working in a live breaker box and should have some knowledge of electrical equipment and procedures). On a side note, My skill sets are above the average home owner, as I have 45 years working with high voltage materials. But like I stated earlier. I think its a pretty straight forward install and most people would not have trouble completing. Fixitorelse. February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just the right size and configurable The Reliance transfer switch is also good but you are stuck with their proprietary breakers. This transfer switch can be configured to run 10 circuits. The breakers are compatible with many common brands. If you do add 4 additional circuits to make 10 circuits you will replace the single breakers with double breakers and it makes it easier to complete the job if you also run a second conduit to the Main Breaker Box to handle some of the wires. Wires are well marked and it uses hefty 60 Amp breakers in both the outgoing Main Breaker Box and incoming Transfer Switch - this means the 30 Amp transfer switch is well supplied with incoming power when switched to "Utility". As a contractor , this is my recommended transfer switch for my customer's portable generators. December 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value Mostly complete - missing neutral wire to main panel - with adequate instructions. For $200, can't be beat December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This transfer switch is a high quality American made product! I installed this transfer switch into my 400 amp service with two 200 amp twin panels in about 3 1/2 hours. Coupled with my new 6800 watt generator I am now ready for the next short or extended power outage. Instructions were clear making for a simple installation. If you are not comfortable working inside an electrical panel you should hire an electrician. There is no possibility of backfeeding the panel and creating a shock hazzard to electrical utility workers with this device. When the power goes out my backup generator will have the lights, fridge, furnace, freezer, well pump, etc. back on in less than five minutes! January 8, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NOT ADEQUATE Once wired into my panel box, as per instructions, I could not run all of my appliances when on power from the grid. It was wirred correctly, but my appliances could not get enough current to function properly, and I had not even connected a generator. Not happy with this product! I ordered this product a couple of years ago, but never got the time to work on this project until now. Really not happy! April 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy installation I just put it in, so I can't comment on long term reliability. Seems well made though. Biggest plus: very easy installation (as long as you're right next to the main electrical panel. As with all transfer switches, you can still do it if you're further away but you have to extend it yourself, which takes time and wire.) Only small negative: The two unchangeable breaker positions are 15A. I'd like to see one 15A and one 20A. In any case it's rated for 10 circuits, so the 4 changeable slots can all be fitted with 20A tandems, which should always be more than sufficient. October 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice product I had purchased this transfer switch from the recommendation of my electrician. He was very please with the product, as well as the other materials that came with it. The price is a little high compared to some of the other options out there. January 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by the real deal Installing it this weekend comes seems like a good and realiable product but wont know till the power fails and the generator fires up. Hope its a good buy. January 7, 2015
