I was thinking about flush mounting a 31410CRK since my existing panel is also flush mounted. There is no room to mount it to either the left or right of the panel, so the transfer switch would have to be mounted directly below. Is the conduit supplied with the flush mount kit long enough to do this? Thanks. Mike
Michael Olive

Answer
Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

The Reliance Controls KF10, 10-circuit flush mount kit will feature a 24" flexible conduit. Based on your described installation, it is likely that this length will not be suitable. Our recommendation would be to test fit the materials. This will allow you to identify a suitable length should the 24" fall short.

Is there a flush-mount equivalent to the 31410CRK, or a flush-mount kit that can be used with it?
Paul

Answer
Thanks for the inquiry!

The Reliance Controls 31410CRK, 30-amp power transfer system does not come in a flush-mount version. However, you are in luck as there is a flush mount kit available for that particular reason. You can find the KF10 flush mount kit on our site, by following the link provided below.

Hello Mike, I recently purchased the Generac GP7500 Generator, I also purchased the Pro Tran Q310C Transfer Switch. Reading the install instructions I'm questioning weather I purchased the right Transfer Switch. The main service to my house is a 150 amps.
Allan

Answer
Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

The Reliance Controls, Q310C is designed to operate as a load center. This device is essentially a manual transfer device as well as sub-panel, all-in-one. It is not required to match the utility service as this equipment will not be supporting your entire load.

The Q310C is a great fit for use with a 7500 watt portable generator which features a 30 amp, 240v output.

I am going to install solar panels soon. Is this something I need for this installation or will this only work with portable generator?
Angela

Answer
The switches we offer are for use with generators only. You should consult with your solar system provider for proper equipment needed.

Can I install an inlet on the front of the 30 amp 10 circuit Reliance Controls 31410CRK transfer kit panel and if so could you recommend one thats sold on this site. Thanks, Bob
Bob Robbins

Answer
It is possible, that is what the blank cover plate space was intended for. A recent code change to the NEC has made this option one that cannot be offered by the manufacturers. This is why you will see more and more of the manual switches packaged or cross sold with the outdoor inlet box.

You may want to explore the 30310A switch and then buy a cord set to the length you then need. We offer cords in 30amp from 10'-100'. If you wanted to connect the cord direct to the switch the power inlet supplied (and part of the cost) would be rendered useless.

With regards to the 31410CRK with 10 circuit support, (6-15A/120v, 2-20A/240v), can the 2-20A/240v circuits be swapped out for additional 120v support?
Allen 
from New Jersey 
January 24, 2012
Answer
Each individual side is 120V so with the removal of the silver connecting bar you can have 2 - 120V circuits instead of 1 - 240V circuit.

This process is mentioned in the owner's manual you receive with the switch.

Jim, I have a portable Ridgid generator rated 8,000 watts running to 10,000 watts surge. Can you recommend a transfer switch kit? Many of the kits I saw are rated for 7,500 watts. I am pretty handy, could I install the kit without a licensed electrician?
Bill 
from New Jersey

Answer
The transfer switch size is based on the size outlet you have on your generator. Typically 8000 running watt generators have a 30A 4-Prong twist lock type outlet (L14-30R) as the largest cord connection.

All 30A connections are rated for a maximum wattage of 7500 watts; inlet boxes, transfer switches, power cords and receptacles.

So, even though your generator is rated so high, you are limited by the outlet size of 30A and you can only get 7500 watts out of your 30A outlet.

The additional wattage is available through the other outlets on the generator.

The only way to get more wattage is to go with a larger generator that offers a 50A outlet that can give you a maximum output of 12,500 watts (max for portable generators).

It is always recommended to have a certified electrician do your manual transfer switch installation. They are familiar with all your local city, county and state codes and it helps for insurance purposes.

I want to put the outdoor plug approximately 25 feet from my panel. Can I still do that with this kit?
Dan

Answer
The kit will work. However, your electrician will need to add some additional wiring between the power inlet box and transfer switch to make up for the extra length.

Can the 31410CRK handle a 10.5kW surge wattage generator? My generator is 7K Running with a 10.5 peak.
Alan Darby 
from Mississippi 
March 27, 2011
Answer
The maximum wattage on this switch is 7500 watts as it is rated at 30A. This is also true for the 30A outlet you have on your generator. (30A x 240V = 7200W) The reason manufacturers install this size outlet on your generator is because proper generator sizing should rated at 80% of the generators running capacity so when the larger loads do kick in the unit can handle the surge and still provide proper voltage.

When or if you hit the surge rating on the generator (10.5kW) your voltage output would be much lower then any sensitive electronics can handle which is why it is important to size the unit to 80%.

is this panel NEMA 3 for mounting outdoors?
Jeff Edwards  
from California 
February 26, 2011
Answer
The transfer switch in this kit is for indoor mounting only. (31310A) The kit comes with a power inlet box (mounted outside) so the cord can be plugged into it and generator running outside allowing the power inlet box to be wired to the transfer switch mounted indoors. This set up is the preferred installation method to help prevent generators from being used indoors and allow the controls inside for ease of use.

If I need only 1 20 amp 240 circuit can I change the other one to make 2 20 amp circuits ? Can these circuit breakers be replaced?
Gary Ballou 
from New Hampshire 
February 21, 2011
Answer
Yes, the attachment bar for the 240V circuit can be removed to allow operation of 2 - 120V circuits instead. The internal breakers cannot be switch out though.

Can you run an 8000 watt generator with the model 31410crk transfer switch?
George Cornett 
from Arkansas 
February 04, 2011
Answer
Yes, this switch is perfect for a 8000 watt generator. When sizing a generator it should be sized to 80% of the generator running capacity so when a large load kicks in the generator has enough flexibility to handle the load without sacrificing the voltage output. This helps keep proper voltage available when these loads kick in and prevents any problems with the equipment being powered.

Hello. What are the main differences between the Q310A and the 31410CRK switches?
Raegen Carr 
from Florida 
January 23, 2011
Answer
The "Q" Series Reliance Controls transfer switches have interchangeable breakers and their "Pro/Tran" Series do not.

Advantage of interchangeable breakers allows you to adapt the switch to your specific needs.
