Good Quality

"This switch was very easy to install. Inside there was plenty of wire room. It is well made. There are two individual 60 amp breakers tied with a common throw bar. It can be switched, break before make, from one line to the second or both breakers switched off to total kill the load. Very good basic design."

"IN ORDER TO EASILY CONNECT MY GENERATOR TO SELECTED CIRCUITS WITHOUT ENDANGERING ANYONE WORKING ON THE LINE I PURCHASED A TRANSFER SWITCH FROM NORTHERN SUPPLY. DELIVERY WAS PUNCTUAL AND THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT WAS INSTANTLY EVIDENT. IN CONJUNCTION WITH A SUB BOX I AM ABLE TO SAFELY SWITCH 6 CIRCUITS TO GENERATOR POWER. I AM IMPRESSED WITH THE EASE OF MOUNTING AND CONNECTING THE SWITCH. I RECOMMEND NORTHERN SUPPLY TO ANYOME INTERESTED IN QUALITY AND SERVICE."

Transfer Switch

,
July 13, 2009
By NikTheCat
from Middle of Virginia
"This basic unit allows the transfer of three phase power from the main source or the generator to a secondary panel. The unit is composed of four 60 amp circuit breakers with sets of two working together for each power supply input. The circuit breakers from the main line must be manualy switched off to allow the circuit breakers from the generator to be turned on. As I have to pull the generator out of the garage and fire it up anyway, I have no need for an automatic transfer switch. This switch works fine. This is a low cost solution to what can be a much more expensive modification. My only dislike of the unit is there are no seperate grounding points, for ground wires, in the box. I added them myself.
The sides of the box have mutliple knockouts for various sized connectors and conduits. The largest knockouts are 2 inches.

"This is just what I needed for use with a sub panel controlling our well pump, furnace, and ketchen when the public utility goes down. Installation of the transfer is simple and it facilitates compliance with required generrator safety precautions."

Reliance Generator Transfer Switch — 60 Amp

,
March 7, 2007
By Lyle
from Atlanta, GA
"The switch is a very good product. It is well made and works great. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it could be about half the size and still have plenty of room inside for the connections. It is about 12" x 12" and 4" thick."
