Q: Josh, I have a Honda 6500 inverter style generator currently paired with the APC panel for 10 circuits. I have 100 amp service panel. I want to upgrade to a transfer switch that powers my whole panel and then I can pick and choose which circuits to use for my available wattage. Which transfer switch do you recommend as a replacement?
by Brian from Massachusetts on August 29, 2013

A: Thank you for your inquiry!

In order to accomplish the power transfer as you have described, I would recommend to you the TCA1006DR for outdoor use. For an indoor equivalent, the TCA1006D is a great option.

You can find either of these units listed below. Please keep in mind that the Automatic Transfer Switches will not function with one of the portable generators.

Peace Of Mind
We have a 100-Amp circuit panel in our house and was able to purchase the Generac Smart Switch - 100-Amp Automatic Transfer Switch + AC Shedding (Service Disconnect) to work with the 11KW Generac standby generator we bought. My electrician was very impressed with the unit and the ease to install. At the present time we do not have A/C however this unit will allow us to add two units if needed. We both work from home and are pleased we did not have to decide what was crucial to us when the... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Fast

Automatic Security
By using RTSY100A3 automatic service disconnect switch, my 16KW generator will be able to power my entire service panel, therefore allowing me to use most of the electrical equipment I normally use. The switch was shipped and delivered quickly, in fact, it arrived the day before the arrival of the generator itself.

Works Like A Charm!
The very next day after my Generac Generator was installed, there was a severe thunderstorm in the middle of the night. I was laying in bed, waiting for the power to go out, when I realized that it was already out and my new generator was "on the job." The storm was so loud I had not realized that the unit had started.

As a plus, when power was restored, the transfer switch worked as advertised and power was re-switched back to the power company without any power interruption to... more

Generac Smart Switch Works As It's Suppose To.
I had the switch installed with my new Generac generator. My electrician had no problems and the installation went fine. Approximately 2 weeks later my wife was home alone when the power went out.

She said before she realized what had happened the generator started and restored power in the house. She was very happy with that and if she's happy, I'm happy!
Pros: Reliable, Features, I'd Buy It Again

The Brains
About three days after the installation, I was sitting by the window adjacent to the Generator when it started. My first thought was that we were having a blackout but it was its first test run. That was very comforting to know all was well.
Pros: Fast, Reliable, Features, Quiet

Great Purchase Experience
The purchase was a breeze and delivery went like clock work. The design of the lugs in the switch itself caused a slight problem for the installer and caused a slight delay, but he was able to overcome a poor design. The switch worked great when tested and I'm hoping for many years of service. Thanks Electric Generators Direct.
