Can this 50amp inlet box w/flip up lid be mounted sideways and still be a NEMA boc. If so, can you run conduit into what is now the top of the box and stil be UL listed?
Les Grzesik 
from Illinois 
September 03, 2013
Answer
Thank you for your inquiry!

The PB50 is designed to be installed in a vertical manner, any deviation from this would invalidate the UL listing. Being that the enclosure features overlapping metal lips, installation in a sideways configuration could potentially allow for moisture to infiltrate the enclosure posing significant hazards.

What size knockouts are on the box? Can I use 1 inch PVC conduit with this box?

Answer
Thank you for the inquiry!

The Reliance Controls inlet box, PB50 features three knock-out locations. These are fitted with 1/2" and 3/4" options. Unfortunately this box does not feature a 1" knockout.

Hi Jim, I am looking at your Generac 15kw. The place of installment has a 200A service with a 50A/240V CB for the stove and a 20A/240V CB for the large door. I do not look forward to wiring a transfer switch inside as the layout is not good. Putting the switch next to the outside box makes more sense to me. What do you recommend? Do you sell a 200A switch without CBs? I do not know what the NEC states but it seems if all circuits already have CBs and as the generator has a CB, it would be safe. Only thing the owner will have to monitor what is on at once. Thanks for your help. Steve

The proper switch for this application would be the Reliance Controls TWB2005DR. See link for details:

Reliance Controls TWB2005DR

Mounted between the meter and main for full panel control which is managed by the home owner.

Thinking about splicing this into the dryer line to hook up generator for power outage. What say you?
Steve Kreinbrink 
from Michigan

Answer
This specific product is to be wired to a manual transfer switch and not to be used to back feed into your panel where you can injure a utility worker working on the line. Even though you may turn off the main breaker you are continually connected to the neutral in the panel.

Suppose some appliance you are running has a hot to ground fault. (Not hot to neutral.) Now the hot side is grounded putting your neutral at 120v. Don't depend on the neutral-ground bond in your panel; it depends on too many iffy connections and may not even be required in some jurisdictions. Now you have a hot neutral wire running to your transformer on the pole. Any other fault that connects one
of the hot leads of that transformer to ground puts 120v across the secondary (neutral), which puts anywhere from 4000 to 13,000 volts back along the high voltage lines feeding the transformer. So, the breaker in the generator or the breaker in your panel won't trip immediately.

Is this product a 4 prong because the photo shows 3 prongs?
Tim

Answer
The inlet box actually has a 4th prong which is the center post and is the correct connection for a 50A cord.
