Product Overview

This 10-circuit, 50 Amp manual transfer switch is designed for fast installation (indoors) in a home, office or small business. It is completely pre-wired and enables the electrical system of the building to accept the power of a portable generator to run up to ten single-pole circuits and any pair of single-pole circuits can be used as a double-pole circuit. It allows you to power electrical appliances, devices and lighting during a power outage. This transfer switch is completely code compliant and keeps the generator power isolated from the utility power at all times. Circuit breakers are 1 in. interchangeable and can be changed to different sizes and brands that are compatible and within the maximum circuit size ratings.
  • California residents
  • Maximum circuit size is 30 Amp in positions A and B and 20 Amp on all other positions (C-J) “A” prefix model designates that a 30 Amp double-pole circuit breaker comes installed in circuit positions A and B
  • Dual color-coded wattage meters to help balance the generator load and estimate overall power usage
  • For use with portable generators or inverters with a maximum output of 50 Amp at 125/250 VAC
  • Removable cover with circuit label adds protection and convenience and finishes off the overall look of the transfer switch
  • Listed by Underwriters Laboratories Inc.
  • 5 year warranty

I just got off the phone with Reliance. Two of the breakers may come with 20 Amp Breakers, but they are wired with 10 gauge, so it is fine to replace those two breakers with 30 Amp units.

Can this be used with a 30amp output generator? My generator is 8500w running and 10k watt surge...

First thing in setting up a gen is to know what load you need. What do you want to feed during a outage? Add up all that wattage. Or add up all the amperage & multiply by voltage to see what size wattage of gen you need. Then get the transfer switch to a match it. A 15/20a circuit may only have 7.0 amps on it, like a refer/freezer, or a 220v 20a will only have 10a load. (Remember that there is an inrush of startup current on motors. You don't want to overload the gen as the voltage will sag- a brownout- & may burn up equipment.) But using a 30A gen to feed a 30A total load is ok, nonmatter how many circuits you feed that thru. And this one has 10 circuits. Change out the 15a cb if your panel is using a 20a for that circuit, same w the 2, 20a/2p cbs if you don't need them, for sp cb. Make sure the new 20a cb are fed w #12AWG THHN, or the 30A is fed w #10AWG THHN to the panel. With my gen I have 2 circuit to the kitchen for the microwave or for the induction heating plate, or coffee maker & the refer. But my kit has 4 GFIC circuits & the refer w utility power. On backup, 1 220v well pump & 1 gas furn, 1 freezer, 1 media center to the UPS. I use 3 UPS for all electronics because we get a lot of outages.

First off, this comes with a cable socket so as to attach it to your generator. It's a 50 Amp type connector. Does your generator have that? I'm powering exactly what you are powering right now, and a 4500 watt generator handles it fine. This panel may well be more than you need.

what is needed to connect to generator?

Well for me I wanted to do 50 amps. So I needed a 50 amp generator plug ..... https://www.homedepot.com/p/Reliance-Controls-50-Amp-Power-Inlet-Box-PB50/202216493. And a 50 amp generator cord .... https://www.homedepot.com/p/Generac-50-ft-50-Amp-Generator-Cord-with-NEMA-14-50-Male-and-Locking-Female-6390/203835701 (find a shorter one for cheaper im sure, just can't find one on home depot site). You will also have to have some 6/3 wire that goes from the transfer switch to the generator plug. You possibly may have to swap some breakers out in the Transfer switch to match your electrical panel breaker sizes.

Excellent design and function, a very safe and convenient way to tie in my 12KW natural gas generator. The flush mount kit worked great and looks nice. The watt meters are very helpful in balancing the load on each leg. Additionally the technical assistance folks were awesome in helping select the best transfer switch. I highly recommended!

Nice MTS. Check the lugs on the breakers. One was loose and a few others were not torqued down enough on wires. One non-insulated connector to internal buss bar was very close to touching metal enclosure. Rotated that for more clearance. Install was straight forward. Only wish the wires were longer. I had to splice in additional wire to reach some of my load center breakers using the flush mount kit. Kit gives you a longer flex conduit, which I needed, but that makes your wires shorter once inside load center. Other than that, I'm very pleased, the Inspector was very impressed with this MTS and passed my install. He really liked the fail safe on-off-on feature preventing any possible back-feed. Also liked the meters, so homeowner can observe load and balance if necessary with the individual breakers while energized by port gen. Tested it with my 10K Gen the other day. No problems, worked like a champ. Deduced one star due to the few QC issues I found and wires not long enough when using flush mount kit.

Wiring is plenty long to run. Knock outs in the back to hide all the wiring that runs to the main box. Meters to see how much power is being used on each side is easy to read. The cover makes it look very clean and not an eye sore. Would highly recommend this item. Actual real breakers in the transfer box

Easy to install, very versatile for use with portable generator installation. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking to setup your house to use a portable generator during a storm. I had the panel installed by an Electrician who was extraordinarily impressed with it. In fact, the Electrician told me it was the best transfer panel of its type he had ever installed and he has been working in the Florida area- where he has installed hundreds of transfer panels- for over 18 years. Ten circuits was not overkill for a 10KW portable generator and allowed me to operate my well, septic pump, refrigerator & freezer, bathroom, kitchen and one set of lights in my "Florida Room"- exactly what I wanted for comfort during the next hurricane outage (the last outage was 23 hours and ruined all the food in the freezer).

Works well for switching between generator and line power. Used it a couple of times so far. The meters really help manage and balance the load you're placing on the 2 phases from the generator.
