These indoor surface mount transfer switches are designed for fast installation in residential and commercial applications. The 18-inch flexible conduit whip attaches easily to the load center and all wires are clearly marked. Simply select the circuits needed in an emergency and connect them to the Pro/Tran wire leads. Pro/Tran transfer switches feature a rugged powder-coated steel cabinet with six combination 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch knockouts, resettable branch rated circuit breakers and non-defeatable (break-before-make) double-throw switches. Some models feature exclusive Reliance watt meters with accuracy of ± 3% throughout the entire range. All models with a power inlet on the front *with exception to model 30216BRK* also include a cover for the power inlet opening that facilitates hard-wiring. All models without a power inlet on the front include a covered opening that permits the installation of a power inlet for cord connection directly to the transfer switch. A watt meter panel (WP7500) is available for all models without meters (except models 15114A and 30114A). The watt meter panel includes an opening, with cover, for an optional power inlet.

What Is a Generator Transfer Switch?
A Reliance Transfer Switch is the key to safe and convenient operation of portable generators for standby power. By isolating those circuits using generator power, transfer switches eliminate the risk of back feeding the electrical utility, which can cause injury to workers and property damage.
By installing a transfer switch at your breaker box and connecting a portable generator to the transfer switch, you can run selected circuits for appliances such as a furnace, well pump sump pump, refrigerator, television, computer, printer or lighting circuit during a power outage, depending on the capacity of your generator. Since many portable generators cannot handle all of these loads at the same time, the transfer switch allows you to manually transfer each of these loads separately whenever you need them or as required.
Determining which circuits you will require during a power outage is the first step in selecting the proper wattage generator and transfer switch. Since most home appliances operate intermittently, a 6500 watt generator can provide adequate power to circuits for the most common appliances, such as furnace, lights, refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven, and TV.
What to buy.
Most people prefer one of two kits made by Reliance Controls. A 6 circuit generator transfer switch kit and a 10 circuit transfer switch kit. They both have all all the parts most people need. The kits save you a lot of time and running to the store for little things.
The best instructions we found are for this brand and there are even online videos to help you.
For those who have more specific needs there are hundreds of different combination with different size circuit breakers, generator plugs and, lights and watt meters to pick from.
