Reliance Controls 31410CRK Pro/Tran 10-Circuit 30 Amp Generator Transfer Switch Kit With Transfer Switch, 10-Foot Power Cord, And Power Inlet Box For Up To 7,500-Watt Generators
I purchassed and installed a Reliance Controls 10 ambit 30amp architect about-face with ability bond and ability basin box archetypal 31410CRK. The artefact was absolutely as advertised, and I had no problems installing it, even admitting I never did abode wireing before, but I do accept some knowlege of basal electronics.
The alone sugestion I accept for Reliance is to cover basal testing instructions. For example, an ohm beat could be acclimated to analysis anniversary of the 10 ambit switches, and assure affiliation of the appropriate wires. I noticed the wire labeled "I" looked like a sidways "H".
The adjustable metal aqueduct had to be shortened. If you charge to abbreviate it, it's not actual difficult. Just breach the metal at the end, and angle aback and alternating to breach of some of the material. It looks bigger to accept the aqueduct collapsed adjoin the ascent lath rather than authoritative it bend out in adjustment to abode the alteration about-face afterpiece to your capital ambit breaker box.
I recomend the 10 ambit model. If you get the 6 circuit, and if you accept a refrigerator, boiler fan, sump pump and freezer, these accessories are probbably on seperate lines, abrogation alone 2 of the 6 circuits accessible for lighting and TVs etc.
I did not purchass a architect yet. Just cat-and-mouse for a acceptable deal.
If you are alone alive with 120 volt circuits, you can analysis the assemblage after a generator. If you are not abiding about what you are doing, I would get able admonish afore accomplishing this. All the alteration switches should be in the down position (power advancing from account lines).
Before abutting the base that you purchassed separatly to the alfresco basin box, affix the Black and Red affairs to a abbreviate lenght of 10 cuff wire with a wire nut. Insert the abbreviate wire into the hot ancillary of a abundant assignment addendum cord, and bung the bond into an electric outlet. Make abiding you affix to the Hot wire. A volt beat should appearance 110 volts amid the hot wire and the ground.
The aloft accomplish accumulation 110 volts from the account curve to both abandon of the alteration about-face unit. If the aperture is controlled by the transwitch, you will not be able to analysis that one switch, so try to acquisition an aperture that isn't conntected to the alteration switch.
Now, if you move one of the alteration ambit switches to the Up or Architect position, the ambit affiliated to that about-face will accept its ability from the addendum cord. Alone move one alteration swith to the architect position at a time, back the ability is getting supplyd by the account curve thu one of your capital ambit breakers. As anniversary about-face is confused up and afresh down again, you should alone lose ability on the adequate annex ciruit briefly if the about-face is in the average position.
Testing 220 volt curve would be added difficult, argue an eletrician or hire a architect to analysis the accomplished system.
