Install the components in this kit to safely feed power from a portable generator to a home or business during an outage. Run portable power to 6 to 10 essential circuits like a furnace, well/sump pump, lights, refrigerator or garage door opener during a power outage. Kit includes a 30 amp transfer switch, power inlet box, 10-Foot cord and extra 20 Amp plug. Required by the National Electrical Code, a transfer switch prevents dangerous backfeeding onto utility lines. Installed like a subpanel next to the electrical panel in a basement, interior room or garage. Accepts standard breakers so if your needs change, more breakers can be added to accommodate up to 10 circuits. If your installation is 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. The power inlet box should be mounted on the outside of the home in a convenient location for generator connection, away from doors and window openings. The 10-Foot 30 Amp power cord (10 gauge 4-wire) includes L14-30 locking ends for connection from your generator to the power inlet box. If you have a smaller generator (3500 - 5000-Watt), an extra 20 Amp L14-20 plug is provided for your installer to modify the cord. Easy to use. UL Listed in US and Canada. Made in USA.
