Yes, this transfer switch will work with generators up to 15000 running watts. However, please keep in mind that this switch is for supplying a single circuit or panel up to 60 amps. If you want to power multiple circuits in a main panel please look at model no. A510C, internet no. 206503336.

Yes, the switch is actually two circuit breakers, so it does not matter which direction the power feeds, so you could us it to switch between, say, two different pumps or motor loads as long as the loads are undeer 60amp.

the generator out put is the max load (continuous that is available that you can use to power the home), refrigerator and other motors are spiked [ intermittent startup loads that the generator can handle] So you must measure each circuit that you wish to power with a ampere meter add them up and turn off the loads that are over what the generator out put is when it is in service

Yes you may, by changing out the breakers to to 30 amp to help eliminate confusion. how ever the circuit is still protected by the 30A at the panel. the transfer switch still has to be in an accessible location

Asked by chickenman September 18, 2018

If the panel you are describing is a true subpanel, it would not have a meter. A subpanel would be fed from a main panel which would include the 60-amp main breaker for this sub panel. It this is a true subpanel, this transfer switch would intercept the L1 and L2 wires between the main and sub panels. You must have some means of disconnecting the power that feeds your subpanel. If not, don't attempt to do this as an DIY project. If installed correctly, there is no way that the second power source (generator?) can back feed into utility power lines. How large in the main panel? Why are you only providing power to a single subpanel? Typically one would do load shedding by turning off unnecessary circuit breakers, thus reducing the required size of a generator.

If we understand your question, YES and NO. Our Generator Transfer Switch allows Safe transfer from Main panel to Generator or Back to Main ~~~ but never both connected at same time. We would suggest Electric Meter Transfer (mounts between Meter and Base. Model# MA23-S) Ameren Missouri will NOT permit us to use this meter... so check with your Electric Utility Company FIRST. We did and answer was NO! Sorry for us because we are technology experts. Our other suggestion contact Andrews 2010 Solar Electric Company, Saint Charles Missouri. They are Renewable Energy Experts. Good Luck.

Asked by doug May 18, 2018

I used this switch to run a circuit to a critical breaker panel, running my wood fired boiler and furnace, and my water pump. Rather than a generator, the switch connected to a 15KW inverter, and 48 volt battery bank. Concept was to tie into my 6kw solar panels, but ran into issues with code requirements turning off the panels in the event of a power failure. I am not sure how you are thinking of connecting into your main breaker box. When they installed my solar system, because I mentioned generators, they installed a new main breaker panel which had a double 60 amp breaker, with a metal sliding guard, that would only allow that breaker to be turned on when the mains were turned off. That way the generator powered the entire house without danger of backfeeding the grid. The owner has to be judicious about what equipment is turned on, depending on the power of the generator. This would be a manual system, not automatic. My inverter is automatic, in that it sense when there is power, and charges the batteries, but in the event of a power failure, switches to inverter mode for the critical panel, and keeps my wood boiler from exploding.

Do you have a flush mount option

Answer

The flanged cover on this transfer switch is best suited for surface mounting. We do not offer a flush mount cover for this product.

I installed the panel and hooked up the service which worked fine. I have not had a chance to use the generator but I don't see ant problem. If I have any problems with the generator side I will up date this review at that time.

Great Transfer Switch ad a reasonable price. It is well built and simple. The components used are well made and everything fits together well. The box has plenty of space for all the wiring and there are a lot of knockout on all sides making it easy to install. I ordered this on Home Depot website and had it less than a week later.

This panel provided ample room inside for routing and termination of the #4 gauge wires. Easy to mount and easy to wire. Operation of transfer switch is very simple - just flip the interlocked circuit breakers. Also allows for both circuit breakers to be in the off position.
