The Reliance 20216A Keep watch over Pro/Tran Indoor Transfer Switch is easy to install and operate. The purpose of a transfer switch is to connect a secondary power source, like your generator, to circuits in your house or building that are wired into the electrical system. It is designed to enable the wiring system of the building to accept the full power of a portable generator, which can run multiple electrical appliances and devices all over a power outage. The transfer switch ensures that you’ll be able to safely use back up power all over a power outage without having to worry about back feeding the utility line. In an emergency situation you might not think to shut off the main power source, the transfer switch makes it so you would not have to worry about that. Each individual circuit may also be transferred one at a time and only as needed. This transfer switch features 6 15-amp single pole circuit breakers and 1 20-amp single pole circuit breakers. This model includes a separate flanged inlet for direct generator connection in a dry location. The recommended cord size for this switch is a 12-gauge cord.
