What is the maximum wattage rating for this panel?

Asked by Brian March 20, 2020
3
Answers

For use with generators having 11,520 Rated Watts | 14,400 Surge Watts maximum. This Manual Transfer Switch is commonly paired with a 6,000–10,000 Rated Watts portable generator. This size portable generator may have a “grounded neutral”, whereas a “floating neutral generator" is required for use with this MTS. A “grounded neutral generator” can typically be quickly converted to a “floating neutral generator” by removing the cover and disconnecting the neutral-ground bonding jumper. Insulate the disconnected jumper terminal with electrical tape and leave it in place so that it is readily available for re-connection when a “grounded neutral generator” is needed.

The tandom lever is meant for two double pole breakers. There are four additional slots for circuits. If you need more than four, you can purchase double breakers for each slot giving you eight circuits.

Bought this to connect a generator to my breaker box. When I bought my home, it only had 60A service (which I upgraded to 200A). For emergencies, I figured 60A should be plenty. It has a very simple switch, that prevents the breakers, I have chosen to back-up by generator, from simultaneously being powered by the power company. Took a Star away, because the breakers are proprietary and seem rather expensive.

While the safety mechanism that prevents you from inadvertently using both power-feeds simultaneously is a bit hokky - IT WORKS! It means that my wife or daughter will not backfeed power to the grid accidently when I am not around to supervise. Peace-of-mind and safety. I installed it in a food-trailer build-out.

Small and compact. Fits between the studs. Accommodates 8 circuits. The unit comes with four knockouts filled with the two power input circuit breakers and 4 unused knockouts. I first thought that would only accommodate 4 circuits. The nomenclature said it accommodates 8 circuits. I had to do some research to find it uses "tandem breakers." Each of the four "tandems" accommodates two circuits. I called Schneider Electric (Square D manufacturer) to verify the type of breaker. Their nomenclature begins with QOT followed by the amperage of the breakers in that unit. e.g. 2020, 1515, 1520. I suggest the posting emphasize the need for the specific breakers for that box.

The toggle does prevent turning on both sources at the same time, however, it is not strong enough to move both breakers with one motion. I think it could have been done better. I would have preferred a Homeline version instead so I wouldn’t have two kinds of breakers.
