Salient Power Solutions and PSI Power & Controls have merged and rebranded under the Salient name.

Combo Manual Transfer Switch Dual Breaker


Your manual transfer switch and breaker are like the doorways to your generator, letting power through from your primary circuits while beefing up your safety. This small piece of technology is more robust than an interlock kit and does a better job of meeting NEC requirements. This particular switch breaker combination is available in 200 to 600 amps — plenty of power for household usage. As a three-phase product, it delivers more power for the same amperage. The specifications of your transfer switch breakers need to match the load of your generator. Power density supports a larger number of generators, so if upgrades are in your future, this is your ideal solution. Our generator tap box combo has a phase reversal relay and molded, interlocked circuit breakers. The receptacle is color-coded and easy to connect to a portable generator. It comes with optional 480-volt circuit breakers and has a secure locking door.

Manual Power

The automation of your switch is one of the most important choices you’ll make for your generator. As the name suggests, a manual product is turned on and off by hand, while an automatic transfer switch keeps your generator permanently connected to your home. This particular transfer switch is designed for portable generators, so it turns on and off manually.

Indoor-Rated Products

Manual transfer switches can be rated for indoor usage or indoor plus outdoor use. The latter can generally cope with moisture, provided it’s not excessive. Outdoor products are water-resistant, but not always watertight. Indoor units can often cope with minor splashing, but not rain and ice. For that reason, an outdoor-rated product might be preferable in laundry rooms and basements. This Salient product is water-resistant, but not waterproof. Stainless steel gives it a rust-resistant shell that copes well with humid weather. It can withstand minor splashing but is indoor-rated. That makes it suitable for temporary outdoor usage under supervision.

The breaker and transfer switch are ETL-listed, so Intertek has put it through a series of stringent tests to assure its quality. It complies with accepted U.S. safety standards. The ETL mark tells you that the product is efficient and complies with the NRTL program. That includes OSHA and NRTL. As an industry leader and OSHA-recognized body, Intertek is one of the industry’s most trusted marks of quality.
