I may be replacing a 20 kw generator and transfer switch from the mid 1990s in a couple of weeks. The only thing I know about it is that the motor is made by fiat. What I want to know is some idea of what the model number could so be, so I can look up the specs. I want to see if I can do a direct replacement with a more modern generator and whether I will need to change out the transfer switch. That would tell me whether I would need to add wiring.
Anyone have any ideas on how I would track this down?
If you are replacing the gen. the old one would not matter. What matters is what size (amp rating) is the TS, model # and which gen. you plan on getting and what size.
If you replace it with a 20kw your feeder wire from the gen. to the switch should not change. It is sized to the breaker size on the generator.
