Description

The Reliance Controls 31410CRK 30 Amp 10-Circuit Pro/Tran Transfer Switch Kit has everything you need to easily complete a portable generator transfer switch installation in a home or office. The purpose of a transfer switch is to connect a secondary power source, like your very own portable generator, to circuits in your home or building that are wired into the electrical system. Thus, 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 during a power outage. The transfer switch ensures that you can safely use back up power during a power outage without having to worry about back feeding the utility line. In an emergency situation, this kit can make all the difference. Since 1909, Reliance Controls Corporation has contributed more innovations that any other single manufacturer and has been awarded over 85 patents on manual transfer switches, time switches and accessories. Reliance Controls Corporation specializes in the manufacturing of a wide variety of electrical products. The primary product line consists of heavy duty time clocks and controls, generator accessories, transfer switches and transfer panels for portable generators. And after over a century of innovation, Reliance Controls Corporation has built an enviable reputation for high quality, superior engineering and exceptional customer service. The Reliance Controls Corporation 10-circuit 30 Amp transfer switch kit is a complete turn-key kit with everything needed to make a professional transfer switch installation in a home or office. 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 during a power outage. Use this transfer switch for up to 8000-watt generators equipped with NEMA L14-20 or L14-30 power outlets. The kit includes a 30 Amp 6-circuit prewired loadside reliance transfer switch with wattmeters; 30 Amp outdoor power cord inlet box, a 30 Amp 10-foot generator power cord with L14-30 ends, and an extra L14-20 cord end for smaller generators. This unit is cUL1008 listed and is covered by a 5-year warranty.

abunda_amazon_reviews This model has been updated and replaced by Reliance 310CRK. This model works great if you only run smaller devices. The largest you can switch over is a double-pole 20Amp, which is not clearly defined in the description. The NEWER MODEL (310CRK) has a cover, actual breakers (not just push button resets), REPLACEABLE common Square D breakers and, per the instructions from the vendor, you can swap out the main double pole 20Amp breaker with a double 30Amp breaker (for things like water heaters). The newer model also has a breaker cover, this one is completely exposed, which the electrician was not fond of.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2018;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;More updated, SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED, 310CRK released by Reliance;;K;;;I selected the Reliance Controls 31410CRK because of its positive reviews, overall value, and ease of installation. The kit includes hardware to wire into the service panel, but some other pieces of hardware are required. (Like wire and mounting hardware) The kit included an Installation DVD that I never watched. The written instructions and the tutorial on Reliance Controls' website were more than sufficient. The total time working inside the panel was about 30 minutes. The total project time, including mounting hardware and pulling wire was under 3 hours. A suggestion I have for anyone looking at any transfer switch is planning. I mapped all of the outlets, light fixtures, appliances, etc. to each circuit. Then I used meters and product labels to determine wattage requirements of various products. Armed with that data, I was able to plan the circuit layout to balance the load on the generator and pair amperages between breakers and switches. It also helped when deciding which circuits were absolutely necessary, nice to have, and not needed. Another suggestion is to replace standard light bulbs with compact florescent bulbs. My house has 28 light bulbs. At 60W each, the total is 1,680 watts, but the 13 watt CFL total is only 364 watts. Granted, all the lights in the house aren't on at the same time, but it will reduce the load on the generator and your electric bill in the long run. The power inlet box is a little cramped when using knockouts in the back. I still opted for using the rear knockout for a flush appearance outside. The 20 amp cord end would have been handy, but I have a 30 amp generator and won't be using it. Pictures on the web always seem to show the transfer switch to the left of the panel. The cable can be rotated and the switch mounted to the right of the panel, as I did. The wires were long enough to reach from the bottom of the panel to the top, so a lot of wire needed to be trimmed off. I trimmed as I worked, so the cables are all just the right length now. Since this is a permanent installation, I would have liked to see solid core wire rather than stranded. (Only for clean panel installation and ease of insertion in breakers.) The MC connectors between the service panel and the transfer switch do have anti-short bushings. Depending on your state and inspector, they may or may not be required. The kit includes two handle ties if any circuits require 240v. There are two screws on each tie that make them easily removable. Since I didn't have any circuits requiring 240v, I removed both ties to use the full 10 circuits. Each of the wires from the transfer switch is marked with letters for the circuit. The H and the I look very similar, so pay attention to cable orientation when you look at the letters. I paired all the wires and taped them together before starting to avoid hunting in the dark. There are just enough wire nuts to perform the installation in the panel and in the switch, so don't drop any into the sump area. When power is out, cut-over is simple. Start the generator, plug the generator into the power inlet, and throw the circuit switches. I like to throw the switches one at a time. The watt meter will spike when startup current is drawn. When the meter goes back down, I'll throw the next switch. Since Reliance uses break-before-make switches, you can safely perform generator testing while the house is still on utility power. There is no risk of utility power passing to the generator or generator power feeding into utility power, if wired properly. Individual circuits can be flipped to make sure things are working before a power outage occurs. Overall, I think the transfer switch is well constructed and the instructions are thought out and complete. My previous electrical experience was limited to replacing outlets and installing ceiling fans, which helped, but the installation of this was very straightforward.

Being fairly handy, I decided it was time to make the proper hook up for my house. I ordered the Reliance Controls 31410CRK 30 Amp transfer switch as having ten circuits to power seemed like the right size for our home.
