Q: Is this 200 amp utility 50 amp gen panel fed with 4/0 wire?
by John from Massachusetts on September 28, 2013

A: Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

While we cannot advise what is required to feed the TWB2005DR, the rated lug range on this panel will support 4/0 wire. This transfer panel is designed to efficiently handle 5/0.

You will need to confirm the National Electrical Code requirements in order to determine what conductors will feed this device.

Q: If I want to hook up a portable generator to my house on the outside panel box, with a 50 amp circuit 10k generator, single transfer switch which box will satisfy that?
by Andrew Ziffer from Georgia on August 04, 2013

A: It is going to depend on the incoming amperage load from your utility company.

Most applications are 200A but it can vary. Here is the most common manual switch that allows for 50A generator input....

Q: If you buy the Reliance Controls 200-Amp Outdoor Manual Transfer Panel how do you meter your usage so you don't over power generator - 12500 @ 50 mp gen?
by Mark from Florida on July 22, 2012

A: You would have to install a 50A watt meter within the system so you can monitor the generators output.

Q: Hi Jim, I am looking at your Generac 15kw. The place of installment has a 200A service with a 50A/240V CB for the stove and a 20A/240V CB for the large door. I do not look forward to wiring a transfer switch inside as the layout is not good. Putting the switch next to the outside box makes more sense to me. What do you recommend? Do you sell a 200A switch without CBs? I do not know what the NEC states but it seems if all circuits already have CBs and as the generator has a CB, it would be safe. Only thing the owner will have to monitor what is on at once. Thanks for your help. Steve
by Steve Deckard from California on January 04, 2012

A: The proper switch for this application would be the Reliance Controls TWB2005DR. See link for details:

Mounted between the meter and main for full panel control which is managed by the home owner.

Q: I want to be able to use my portable generator (8000W) to supply power to my entire 200A breaker panel so I can pick and choose and switch the circuits I power on. What is the easiest way to do this?
by John from Virginia on September 20, 2011

A: You can do this with the Reliance Controls Manual Transfer Panel - TWB2005DR which is wired between your meter and main panel and allows you to manage your circuits.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Hi Jim. I bought a 17.5 kw Generac and want to use it to power the whole house. Is there a way to get more than 50 amps to a transfer switch.? What transfer switch would you choose?
by Peter Matheson from Nevada on February 19, 2011

A: The best way to connect to your home panel and have the ability to use all your circuits is to use a manual transfer panel based on the amperage size of your existing panel. (100A or 200A) This transfer panel would be mounted between your meter and your main panel breaker so you have control of all of your circuits. You still need to control them according to the load without exceeding the maximum of 12,500 watts through the 50A outlet. In a normal situation no one normally uses anywhere near 12,500 watts at any one time. The link below will show you some of the switches we have to give you more options.

Q: I have a Honda EB5000X generator and I would like to know what transfer switch you would recommend I use. I know I can not run my whole home but I would like to be able to turn some things on and off as needed.
by Mark Cox from Pennsylvania on February 01, 2011

A: This transfer switch is perfect for trying to manage your panel without the limitations. The main issues would be to not overload the generator and a close eye needs to be watching the loads until you get a real feel for what you are in need of. It is recommended to include a watt meter in your design which will help monitor your usage.

This transfer switch is mounted between the meter and your existing main breaker which allows you the control of your panel.

Note: A certified electrician should be used in this type of application.

Electric Generators Direct Recommended

The transfer panel includes a 200A main circuit breaker interlinked with a 30A - 125A generator breaker feeding a heavy-duty copper bus with feed-through lugs.

This transfer panel is suitable for service entrance and may be used as a main panel or feed-through to a sub-panel or main panel but is ideal for applications requiring the entire service panel to be available for generator power if you have 200A service.

This particular model is rated for outdoor use and can handle a generator... more

Sturdy And Tamperproof
After being without power for 4 days on previous storm decided to be better prepared for next time. Careful planning recommended and qualified electrician should do the install. Works as described and has been used on two occasions since installed.

Makes Your Old Panel A Subpanel
To meet code (taking two inspections to get this signed off gives me some insight), you'll need to make your old panel a subpanel. That means running a 4 conductor SER (Service Entrance Round) cable with an insulated neutral from the transfer switch to your panel. It also means separating all of your neutrals and grounds in that panel and unbonding the neutral strips from the old panel case.

But to review the actual product - it works great. Can be used outside, but I installed my inside... more

Works As Advertised
Purchased the Reliance 200-amp panel with the 15kw Generac as insurance against our typical summer tornado and winter storm outages. The wiring instructions and directions for various service setups are poor (inside panel has a little) or lacking all together. The only reasons I did not give it 5 stars were due to lack of decent instructions (although a licensed electrician is probably your best instruction). Once installed and approved by the inspector it worked like a charm. Even the... more

"The ordering is always simple and easy. Big box stores can't beat the prices and sales staff are far more knowledgeable and helpful than any big box store has ever been.Shipping has always been great. Recommend the curbside unloading--the extra few dollars is worth it. I've ordered some big stuff and each time the driver had a hand operated forklift and moved it right into my garage."

Power Backup Ready
We lost power in a bad storm back in July. It took the power company 6 days to get it back.

So, I ordered the 17500 Generac and the recommended accessories. It took awhile to install because of my work schedule and the fact that we wanted it in the barn. I ran an underground 2 AWG cable from the barn, to the house, to the TWB2005DR; then had the local electric guys run the meter to the TWB2005DR, then back to my main panel.

I installed the outdoor 50 amp transfer box that the genny... more

Great Service!
Have not had to use the transfer switch yet, but, as usual the delivery service was great. Delivered as promised.

Bought a B & S a couple of months ago, it started up as promised.

Have not used it under a loss of power situation yet. But the delivery and shipping was great and also on time.
