15A Manual Transfer Switch

This is a very economical way to properly and safely connect any portable generator to your home.  And no special cords are required.  Any standard 3-prong 15 amp extension cord works with this switch!  And for a small additional charge we include an outdoor power inlet box so you don't have to leave a window or door open to get that generator cord to the switch.

Easy to install and operate, connects inverter or portable generator to residential load center.  Allows manual transfer of individual loads to prevent overloading backup source.   Each individual circuit can be transferred separately and only as needed.   Required in many areas to prevent inadvertent backfeeding of electric power into utility system which can be a safety hazard.

4 single-pole, 120 volt circuits, 15 amps maximum per circuit, 15 amps maximum combined load at 125 volts.  Not suitable for powering 240 volt loads.  Each circuit provided with non-defeatable (break-before-make) double throw switch protected with a resettable circuit breaker.  Male 5-15P power inlet receptacle for standard 15 amp 3-prong type extension cord connection to backup source, 1875 watt maximum.  Convenience outlet that is "live" under backup power.  The 1/2 x 18 inch flexible conduit is pre-wired for easy connection to existing residential load center panel.  Installs in less than an hour, without pulling the electric meter or installing a sub-panel.  Suitable only for circuits protected with up to 20 amp breakers or fuses.  UL listed and CSA certified.  NEMA 1 indoor surface mount enclosure.  Exclusive Gen/Tran 24 month warranty.  See Gen/Tran Instruction Book.  Made in USA
