Questions & Answers

I have a 100 service can this be hooked up to my main panel and run an 8500w generator

Asked by: al
I read your question 3 times, It does not sound like a good idea or project for you. I've seen too many people abuse electricity & wiring, and If you don't wire a xfer switch correctly, you can send power back out on the street that could injure or kill someone. Suggest & MOST important, consult a Licensed Master electrician, some states require this or it's law that ONLY a Master Electrician can wire in your home &/or business. Excellent life saving advice...hence the law in some states. It's cheaper than a hospital or legal fees!

Can this transfer switch be recessed into the wall, or does it have to be mounted on the surface?...

Can this transfer switch be recessed into the wall, or does it have to be mounted on the surface? Hard to tell from the pictures.
Asked by: JinLA
This box can be either inset or surface mounted; knockouts are located on all four sides. It is a very nice box, by the way.

Can be used for a pv solar system instead a generator?

Can be used for a pv solar system instead a generator?
Asked by: Reymon
Well, yes and no. If the solar system were to be used only for backup you could use this switch, however without batteries in the system it could only supply power during daylight hours, and then only if you could find an inverter that had a grid forming mode. For a microgrid, I would suggest an isolation switch to disconnect from the utility and grid forming micro inverters, like the Enphase IQ-8 for the solar panels. This would be a much better solution than a transfer switch.

Utility side breaker is 100a, what size is generator side breaker?

Asked by: coachbcw
Hi, The 100amp refers to the rating or capacity of this switch, this switch is not the protection breaker of your generator, your generator should have it's own breaker to protect the generator. If you have a 100 amp service to your home this switch is connected to the incoming electrical service (input #1) and your main breaker panel (output ) that should also be rated for at least 100 amps. You then connect your generator input which is typically less than 100 amps (input #2). This manual transfer switch allows you to switch between the 2 inputs (mains or generator) but never to have both connected or linked. In the event that you are trying to use more power in the home than your generator can safely produce (pull too much current) your generator will have a builtin output breaker that will trip to protect itself and everything else. As this switch is installed between your main electrical service supply and your home breaker panel, you must ensure that this switch is rated sufficiently to be rated equal or higher than the main breaker on your home panel. If you have a 200amp main breaker panel and sufficient mains supply, you should not use this switch as it is underrated and will limit your home by tripping all the time you try to use more than 100amp. Remember to use sufficient gauge cable / wire for the generator feed and the grounding. There are similar models of this switch that are rated above and below this model.

100 Amp Utility / Generator Transfer Switch is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, inexpensive, easy to install. Panel is well built and easy to install. Coupled breakers comply with Electrical Code. Price was good also as the component costs would have easily been double. Quick delivery too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator transfer switch 100 amp The product met my specification. Two transfer switches where installed in front of two loadcenters. As a electrician the installation was very basic. Installed a fixed male type plug below each transfer switch for the 4-wire 30amp cord from the generator. The transfer switches work great for residential type installations. Above item used for a mountain cabin where general utility power at times are off line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product. Incomplete Specs. The main side is 100A. The generator side is only 60A. Not a big deal unless you are running a 12KW+ generator. Otherwise the product is quite well made.
