Customer Questions & Answers

Does it throw all four wires? ie two phases, neutral and ground?

Asked by: Pitmaster
This is a two pole transfer switch. Only the two hot legs will be switched. It should be used in a non-separately derived system where the hots are switched and the neutrals and ground are always connected.

Are the connections rated for use with aluminum wire?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi WC, you can use this product with aluminum wire, however aluminum wire is brittle and hard to work with. The wire should also be coated. It is recommended to have a licensed professional due the installation.

when the utility power comes back on does this cut off power from the generator ?

Asked by: tractorman
This is a manual transfer switch. It will not allow the generator power and utility power to be on at the same time, but you must manually switch back and forth between the two. It will not turn off the generator or switch itself.

Working with Power inverter and batteries

Can both the utility side and Power inverter side share the Neutral lug with out shorting out my inverter or maybe a fire.Will this box keep them apart.
Asked by: Backup2016
This is a two-pole transfer switch that will keep two hot legs separated from the utility at all times. In a generator installation it is normal for the neutral wires to remain connected. For your inverter installation you should check with your local electrician or inverter manufacturer to determine the requirements and proper installation methods.

transfer switch of 60amps must the inlet box be same to the generator

Asked by: Anonymous
The inlet box should be sized to your generator. For a 30 amp generator (7500 running watts) you could use a 30 amp power inlet box, even if the transfer switch has a larger capacity.

Will this transfer switch handle 2 wire[L+N] 220V transfer? Do you have a wiring diagram.Thanks

I will be using this in Thailand where everything is 220v. Does it have [Double Pole Double Throw] switch?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, Note: check breaker specs for use with 50 Hz service, if applicable. The lack of Neutral terminal(s) will not be an issue for your application unless your electrical code does not allow breaking your Neutral in which case only use 1 side of the dual breaker and connect through the Neutral.

Customer Reviews

60 Amp Utility / Generator Transfer Switch is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Home Generator Cut-Over Excellent relatively inexpensive solution for power transfer from Utility to Generator power. Neutral has to be carried across without a Neutral terminal. GROUND terminals provided. Work effort requires installation of a subpanel for the utility and generator supported loads. Hint: If installed away from the generator (i.e. basement) include a dedicated 120V Outlet, adjacent to switch, wired from 1 side of the switch GEN terminals (must connect to Neutral pass-through). This allows for a small night light next to switch for seeing before transfer is made.
