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.
The switch inside the panel is 100 amp. I don’t think it could be swapped out for 60 amp
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.
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.
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."
Don't listen to Sparky. He being dumb. You can use this as this is what it was built for.
