Great transfer switch.
GaryL
The bus is rated at 100A, so breakers can be easily swapped to match both utility and gen feeds up to that rating.
Francis Voignier
It is a simple configuration, but it works very well.

Since my city power seems to go out every time a mouse farts, I picked up a 10kw generator and all the materials to properly hook it up - including this. The drainage in my neighborhood is poor, so in a decent rainstorm I absolutely need both sump pumps on continuously as it's devastating when my basement floods. I hired an electrician that charged $200 to wire it up.

Last night I was able to use it for the first time. It works exactly as advertised. When the power died, I fired up the generator, killed all the fuses, threw both switches on this DPDT and slowly switched the fuses on. This handled ~1.5kw of draw from each of the 2 sumps, the fridge, the furnace, and all the lighting in the house - probably close to 7kw peak.

When used in conjunction with the following, you have an easy to use whole house generator system!
 Westinghouse WH 6500E, 6500 Watts, 11 HP, Generator With Electric Start
 Reliance Controls TCA1006D Panel/Link 100-Amp Utility/60-Amp (or get the 30 AMP Breaker at HD and return for credit the 60 AMP breaker included!) Generator Transfer Switch For Up To 15000-Watt Generators
 Reliance Controls PB30 L14-30 30 Amp Generator Power Cord Inlet Box For Up To 7,500 Watt Generators
 Reliance Controls PC3040 40-Feet 30-Amp L14-30 Generator Power Cord for Up to 7500-Watt Generators
 Westinghouse WHCVR Polyester Generator Storage Cover

If you're getting a medium to larger size generator, dont let the electrican talk you into wiring individual circuits to the transfer switch, its expensive and limiting. Do the whole house transfer switch and then just be prudent of the load you place on the generator.

I purchased this switch earlier this month, along with a Briggs & Stratton 8,550 Watt Generator #030241, and have it installed and working.

As another reviewer pointed out, this is not a transfer switch per se -- it would be more accurate to say that it's a "dual input panel with mechanical interlock". However, it does the job of a transfer switch just fine. My one knock is that the labels for "MAIN" and "GENERATOR" were put on crooked. Otherwise, it was easy to install and gets the job done.

Excellent switch for interconnecting with a generator to an emergency subpanel. Does not include any breakers so it works perfectly when feeding a subpanel with its own breakers.

This turned out to be a box with 2 double pole circuit breakers and a ground bar. The breakers are head to head in the middle of the box, just like a normal panel. The switch part is a metal gizmo which sits on top of the circuit breakers between their levers. With the panel cover installed, the gizmo is floating between the breaker levers and prevents both from being on at the same time. When you push one on if the other is on it will be pushed off.

The knockouts on the box are relatively difficult to knock out but you don't have to do very many.

You need to know that this unit is not immediately suitable for UL approved portable generators. Although you should consult an electrician on this, you should know that ground an neutral should not be connected anywhere but one location (usually your main panel). If your generator (like my Generac GP8000) has the neutral bonded to ground, you must either disconnect it or switch it. Note that most transfer panels don't switch the neutral.

That being said, with the generator modified, this unit got the job done. I used it in series with a power meter to monitor the power draw on the generator when I turned on each circuit. The neutral bus that came with the equipment is isolated from ground (as it should be), and the lugs were all big enough for the 2-2-2-4 wire used to feed the 100A from the main panel and to the sub-panel. The unit did not come with a ground bar and the standard ones and big box outlets are not a great match.

All in all, it is a well built unit. Its not as good as Square-D or some other units, but the price is unbeatable.

The transfer switch is very sturdy and well built, however I have two issues with the device. First, although the utility and the generator pair of breakers are clearly identified, it is not obvious what the source of power is, unless you read the indistinct 'On/Off' markings on the breakers themselves. Perhaps a pointer attached to the mechanical interlocking device and combined with proper labeling can remedy the situation. The other objection is a lack of a bus or lug for connecting the neutral wires. Nevertheless the skilful electrician can easily solve this problem. Otherwise I am very satisfied with the product since it delivers a great value for a low price.

I used this instead of the usual transfer setup because my main electrical panel is so crowded. When the switch is thrown, this unit transfers a small sub-panel (8-circuits) away from the main electric panel and connects the sub-panel to my 5500 watt backup generator. Have used it one time so far and everything worked perfectly.
