Product Overview

This double-pole manual transfer switch is for use with any 125/240V generator up to 15,000 running Watts. Ideal for switching a 100A service or subpanel from utility to generator power. The TCA0606D is completely code compliant and keeps the generator. This economical single-load transfer panel provides safe transfer from utility power to generator power for a home, office, garage or farm building where the entire circuitry in a main panel or subpanel is to be powered by a generator during a power outage. Compact, all-steel design completely isolates the generator from the utility with manual switching action. Maximum generator input is 15,000 Watts. Maximum utility input is 100A, 125/250VAC.

Customer Questions & Answers

My generator (10000K) requires a #4 guage wire. What is the largest guage wire that can be installed in this transfer box.

Asked by: SSR
100 Amps (as this unit is rated for) would generally require AWG #1 wire so the terminals will be sized accordingly. AWG #4 wire is adequate for 60 amps. Your 10,000 W. generator (10 kw.) will produce 42 Amps.

100 Amp Sub-panel hook up?

I have a master panel outside of my house. It has a 100 Amp breaker that feeds a sub-panel inside of my home with only 110v branch circuits. Can I hook this switch to the sub-panel? I'm thinking as if I lose power, I can lock-out the main breaker on the Main Service panel then feed the generator into the sub-panel from and outside inlet box.
Asked by: Sethlic
You can install this switch between the main panel and the 100 amp sub panel. When the power goes out you will then be able to power the sub panel (but not the main panel) with the generator. You won't even need to lock out the main breaker, the transfer switch will keep the two sources of power safely separated for you.

Can this be used to toggle between one line and two loads? Both loads are less then 60 amps and the line is 60 amps.

Asked by: Set
Yes, it will work but this is not the intended/rated usage which is one load and two separate power sources. Generally, a two pole, double throw switch would be used to divert power from a single source to separate loads.

Why the difference ? 100 v. 60 amp.

1-why the difference in the elect company breakers (2-50's=100# and the gen power breakers #2-30's=60)? 2-does this also switch the neg line over ?
Asked by: trappertom
There is no "Negative" wire with alternating current. You are probably referring to the "neutral" wire. This unit contains two pole breakers that will switch only the two 240 volt "hot" wires. The neutral wire is not switched and bypasses both breakers. The 60 amp. breaker is intended to connect to your generator. It can handle up to 14.4KW. of current. The 100 amp. breaker connects to the utility power and can handle up to 24KW. A 240 volt generator is required and the 240 volt outlet on the generator must be connected to this transfer switch. 120 volt power is available between either of the two "hot" leads and the "neutral" lead in your home subpanel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator transfer switch 100 amp The product met my specification. Two transfer switches where installed in front of two loadcenters. As a electrician the installation was very basic. Installed a fixed male type plug below each transfer switch for the 4-wire 30amp cord from the generator. The transfer switches work great for residential type installations. Above item used for a mountain cabin where general utility power at times are off line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product. Incomplete Specs. The main side is 100A. The generator side is only 60A. Not a big deal unless you are running a 12KW+ generator. Otherwise the product is quite well made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Who Designed this Thing? Why would you design a transfer box that is NOT 2.o entry wire friendly? Perhaps you can get 2.o wire into the grounding bar, but I defy anyone to add 2.o wire into the switch itself! Why design this switch to require a sharp 90 degree bend to route the entry wire into your transfer switch. You know that the feeder wire will be a heavier gauge. Why not place the transfer switch directly in line with the knockout? Assuming that the wire ports are , in fact, big enough for your entry wire....... Come on, Reliant, let's do some designing for reality!

The transfer switch was just what we needed to power home when electricity goes out. After getting it installed by an electrician, the switch worked very well from utility power to generator power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice transfer switch This transfer switch was installed in my new barn along with a new service entrance. Nice switch, reasonably priced. Safe reliable and cost effective way to add a generator transfer switch to any residence or out building.
