58 amp max 8000 watt generator

Asked by TomS November 29, 2020
1
Answer

Most generators have multiple outlets with over-current protection built in. If your generator has an L14-30 receptacle then it should also have some type of fuse rated for a 30A circuit. The transfer switch also has watt meters to actively monitor the current running through it.

Is the Switch box rated NEMA 3R for outdoor use?

Asked by Brad October 29, 2020

I have several GFCI breakers in my circuit panel. Will this transfer switch work with those GFCI ...

Asked by thorathome October 3, 2020
1
Answer

The transfer switch can be wired into circuits that are protected by GFCI breakers in the main panel but their are two caveats to be aware of. One; the transfer switch does not have ground fault protection built in so when the circuit is being powered by the generator it bypasses the breaker in the main panel so the circuit would not be GFCI protected. Switching the circuit back to utility power will restore GFCI protection. Second; when switching the transfer switch between generator and utility power it may cause the GFCI breakers in the panel to falsely sense a fault and trip. There's no harm if it happens but you just might have to reset the breaker when switching back to utility power.

The top (6) circuits are 15A and the bottom (4) are 20A. The pairs of 20A circuits are connected with a tie bar for 240V applications but can be removed for individual 120V circuits.

Easy to install and reassign breakers on the primary panel later on. The fact that everything you need comes with this kit in one package is very nice too. One (minor) concern I have is in regards to the longevity of the housing / plug used for hooking up your generator. The spring is quite flimsy / weak. With zero usage, there was a 1/2cm gap between retractable bottom panel and the plug housing. I would have expected this to be a bit more beefy.

The unit performed as expected except it had two bad switches. Connecticut Electric replaced them with no problem however it is a pain in the neck to replace them. I would suggest using a better quality switch as I have noticed several reviews show bad switches.

Works as intended. I needed to mount the unit right of the power panel so a custom conduit was required along with a junction box to compensate for the longer reach needed. I did not need to move the power receptacle outside since I was using a longer power cord (15') than provided.

Great transfer switch kit. Everything you need to connect to your main load center/breaker box and generator. Install was fairly easy. Every install will be different depending on your location and layout of your load center/breaker box. I needed to swap sides for the cable exit from the right side to the left side of the transfer switch. I ended up removing the meter face plate to get the cables out and reroute them to the left side. More room you have to move the cables the easier it is to do. I did have to purchase 3 other screws from the local hardware store to cover the right side with the plate provided. It came with 1 screw for the plate, not sure if they shorted me the other 3 screws. After installation I connected my generator and fired it up and switched over each circuit to generator power and all was working great. Follow the instructions and you'll be good. Great product. Highly recommend.
