Q: Josh,
Would this transfer switch be compatible with the GE 13Kw unit? I see they are both named Symphony II and seem to be identical.


by Matt Vogt from Ohio on October 11, 2013

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

The Briggs & Stratton 71046, 200A Automatic Transfer Switch will not be compatible with the GE home standby generators. Although quite similar, B&S has confirmed that the units will not work with one another.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Hey Josh, Is this switch (Generac, RTSY200A3) compatible with an older B&S standby generator? 1768-00, 10KW Thank you, Jim
by James Munsey from New Hampshire on October 06, 2013

A: Thank you for your inquiry!

The Generac, RTSY200A3 will not be compatible with your older Briggs & Stratton home standby generator. These devices are going to be compatible with their product line only.

Should you need a 200 amp Briggs & Stratton automatic transfer switch, our recommendation would be the 71046.

Q: Josh - I have a Briggs 10kw standby generator; model: 0402434; serial: 1018686514.

Is the Briggs Transfer Switch model: 71046 compatible with this generator?

They are aware that they will have to monitor the load on the generator.

by Gary N. Betler from West Virginia on September 22, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry!

This switch will be compatible with your customer's 10kW generator. You should be aware that while they have every good intention to monitor the loads, the transfer sequence is performed within a very short window, and their input will likely be less than useful.

We might suggest the Briggs & Stratton Load Control Center for use with this system. This will allow for the customer to manage larger loads without having to lift a finger.

The Briggs & Stratton 71046 is their 200A whole house transfer switch that has a service disconnect and allows you to manage up to 2 central AC units.

The built-in ACCM (Air Conditioning Control Module) monitors up to 2 central AC units and will allow them to run when the Briggs Generator has enough power available so you do not overload the generator. This system helps protect the generator and your appliances and allows for better voltage output for your sensitive equipment.

Great Standby Generator
I ordered the Briggs & Stratton 18KW (Natural Gas) Intelligen Generator and automatic transfer switch for standby emergency service. It came quickly as promised.

The plumber (for natural gas hook-up) and electrician had no problems connecting the unit to the house and it worked perfectly on the first try.

The service disconnect transfer switch is great since it connects to and uses the main breaker in the house so there is no limit, other than overall load, to the number of... more
