generator transfer switch

2175 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Jim Port
I'm installing a generator 6 circut manual transfer switch. Looks like I need to either splice the circuts in the load center (circut breaker box) and bring the wires out to the transfer switch, or I can pull the wires out of the load center and add junction boxes and then route the circuts to the new generator transfer switch.
I have the room in the load center. I'd prefer this method. Is it up to code?

Provided there is adequate space, splicing in the load center is acceptable in most cases. Generac transfer switches are manufactured that way.
If the clamp is listed for two cables, yes. If you are considering shared neutrals make sure the tranfer switch is compatible for that configuration.
