Questions & Answers

What type of connection / plug is used at the generator to feed a 230 volt load?

Asked by: ELM
the best way to obtain a correct ( plug ) is to do it at the time of a generator purchase. TRY it, before you buy it. should you HAVE a generator without a manual, look at the design of the connection at the generator output panel. MAKE a sketch, look close, record details, go to local HD store, ask for help, buy one. DO NOT discard your receipt .ELECTRICAL devices can NOT be returned if they are USED.

Will this work on a 3500 watt generator

Asked by: Lonepine35
This inlet box can handle 3600 watts on each leg (# 10 wire required ) for EACH device connector. You MUST have each connection used to give proper AND legal use. Let us explain. THIS box needs a cable with FOUR wires in it. The plug cap and connector must fit your generator and the inlet box. Are you OFF GRID ? If NOT, DO NOT connect this generator directly into your LOAD CENTER. Review ALL this information with a person that is QUALIFIED to assist you. Go to your local Home Depot, and take the booklet for your generator with you. Having installed many of such items, I suggest a LARGER rated generator. to keep you running for the LONG haul. Your engine will not labor under demand of a starting load, and the unit will last longer. Take a few minutes and total all the things you NEED to keep running . That will be your wattage demand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This box is a great inlet for your generator After going through three hurricanes, I decided that I did want a generator to provide power for the refrigerator and the television. We found that you really need the TV to keep track of where gasoline is and when power is likely to be restored and what is in your neighborhood in the way of storms. Without an inlet box like this, you wind up with extension cords either through a window or through a door. In either case, you now have mosquitos. With this box on the outside, and a 2 gang duplex outlet on the inside, I was able to take the 240 volt 2 phase power into the inside of the house where it became 2 120v duplex outlets. My generator only puts out 2 120 volt circuits that are each limited ot 15 volts by circuit breaker if you use the L14-30R outlet that this box enables you to get to the house. I used a heavy duty 10 awg extension cord, also from home depot, from the generator to this box so that there is very little voltage drop getting to the inside extensions to the refrigerator, TV and satellite receiver, Computer, printer, cable modem, fans and lights. This box is a critical item for the storm preparations.
