The rating on the circuit breaker describes the over current protection. If it states 100amps then it will cover loads up to 100amps. The breakers have a 80percent actual continuous load. Residential loads are normally around 50 percent of the service rating on a continous load basis. Hope this help you understand circuit breaker ratings.

Can this be used on just a single 60 amp circuit.

The switch inside the panel is 100 amp. I don’t think it could be swapped out for 60 amp

why is this so cheap and simple compared to other transfer switch options

This item is cheaper than many transfer switches because it is a manual switch. After power fails, you switch over to generator connection, maybe you plug in your portable generator into an approved input connector and start your generator. This switch does not know when power has been recovered.

Not sure if your asking a question or making a statement. It is clear that you are not an experienced electrician. So 1st, I suggest you consider hiring one to do the job correctly, safely, & legally, some states it's illegal to do your own wiring. Worse if someone, including yourself, gets hurt or killed, & it appears you did NOT comply w/state laws &/or National/local wiring codes......the State will come after You legally, "like a witch on a broom". Insurance maynot cover you either. Now YES those 2 breakers come built in to the xfer switch. They are made that way in the factory. Often these are NOT "Service" rated. So do your "Electrical codes " homework.

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

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?

Asked by Reymon April 14, 2019
3
Answers

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.

60 amp on the generator side is correct. Here's the summary of the specs: "Reliance Controls Corporation TCA1006D Panel/Link 100-Amp Utility/60-Amp Generator Transfer Switch for Generators Up to 15,000 Watts."

TCA1006D Transfer Switch
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
In Canada, this 2 pole double throw switch is expressly intended for "NEUTRAL FLOATING" generators ONLY. And it's 100/60 amp rating make it suitable for whole-home transfer switching with 100 amp service. "NEUTRAL BONDED TO FRAME" generators require a 3 pole double-throw transfer switch. 3 pole double throw transfer switches "maybe" configurable to either type of generator, and can cost 2 to 3 times more $$$. Retail regulations require this info be illustrated on label near receptacles of the generator sold in Canada. This is a quality, cost effective transfer switch, but choose wisely when configuring with intended generator. Recommended.

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.

They should not call this a 100A transfer switch because one input is limited to 60A. It would be more accurately labeled a 100/60A manual transfer switch.
