Yamaha EF2000is Generators w/ Twin Tech Cable and GenTran Transfer Switch
3 Attachment(s)
Hello All..

Im sure some of you had seen some of my prior posts on getting my GenTran transfer switch hooked up. Well, today I got around to testing the generator setup on the switch.

I have two Yamaha EF2000is Generators connected w/ the Twin Tech cable.
This setup gives me a rated 25 amps of power, and peak 30 amps.

I ran almost everything I wanted to with no issues.

I had approximately 200 watts of lights bulbs (led/cfl's)
1 LG Refrigerator
1 Entertainment System (Led TV, Tivo, Surround System) (appx 150 watts)
Nat Gas Furnace (smaller 2 tons sized unit)
Nat Gas Tankless (instant on) Hot Water Heater appx (50 watts)
Security Alarm / Home Networking (router / verizon fios system) (appx 100 watts)

If I turned the furnace off (leaving the rest of the above on) I could also run the following...

A hair dryer
A 1100 Watt Microwave
(Not at the same time of course)

I also plan on having my father-in-law fabricate a custom wood cover for the main panel and transfer switch, he has saw dust running through his veins.

I plan on putting together a You Tube video of this setup, as I couldnt find one before I did this.
