August 1, 2016
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.

Answer: 
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.

I assume that the 100 amp line from the streeet connects to this and then the generator needs to connect to it as well. At that pont, the generator is feeding power to the entire electrical panel. is that correct? How does the generator connect to this switch - special cable, etc ?

Answer: 
Yes, your generator will be suppling to the whole panel. You will need the right size wire to hook up the generator to the panel. I only needed to use a #12 wire for my needs.

Answer: 
You are correct, this switch allows you to switch between utility and generator power and the generator will be supplying power to the entire panel if that is what it is connected to.

Answer: 
you can go with a #10 easy. but #12 will work. I'm using a #12 for my transfer box and powering lights/ plugs/ small water heater and ice box. but if your not sure what you need just go with a #10 and you will be good to go.

Answer: 
This question is best answered by someone familiar with your local building codes. Generally you can use 8 guage THHN style wire in a 50 amp application. However, you may need to use 6 guage wire for long runs or if the local code requires it.
