How to Pick a Compatible Transfer Switch
So you have a generator, but now you need a transfer switch.
What kind of transfer switch can you use? What brand is the best?
Not just any transfer switch will do. Your transfer switch must be the same brand as your generator.
Crossing manufacturers’ products is a big no-no! Because there are internal controls, generators can only communicate with the appropriate transfer switch, and vice versa. Therefore, the generator and transfer switch must be matched properly.
Most manufacturers prepackage their generators with the appropriate transfer switch to make things easier, but if you happen to purchase a generator that does not come with a matching transfer switch, be sure to check with the manufacturer and use only the same brand.
