Hi all
I have a 12kw Briggs backup generator that I am planning to install. My main panel does not have a main breaker so I think I am looking for a transfer switch used as a sub panel like maybe the RTG16EZ. My question is if this would be a good choice? and it is compatible with my generator?
Thanks for the help

The B & S switches and generators that I have worked on have some logic in the transfer switch, Generac switches do not. I think you should seek a switch made for your genset.

Thanks 78buckshot.
I am thinking about using the ATS to feed a sub panel and relocate the circuits I want to go to generator power into the sub panel.
Any thoughts?

It would be wise to wait for one of the electricians on the site to make recommendations, I am not one of them.

You simply need a Briggs switch. The communication is totally different between the two. There are guys that I’m sure could tell you how to do it. That is not something you want to get into. Also you would be voiding both warranties.

ive wired a few briggs standbys over the years. their transfer switches handle exercise and transfers (smart transfer switch), generacs are dumb switches and all the controls are within the controller on the generator.
