50A Power Inlet Box
For installations where the building electrical panel is located indoors and generator is located outdoors. Eliminates need for open window or door for generator cord. Raintight NEMA 3R box can be mounted on exterior of building and wiring may be run through wall to transfer switch or panel. Features aluminum construction which can be painted in field. Twist lock male power inlet receptacle for cable connection to generator, 12,500 watts maximum. Use with female connector RJBC6364 purchased separately. UL listed. Made in USA
This inlet box includes built-in circuit breaker disconnect and dead front for use when local codes requirements regard the devices as service entrance equipment. Some electrical inspectors consider a permanently installed generator a structure, and therefore require a rated service disconnect at the point of entry. All models with a circuit breaker have a 10,000 amp short circuit rating to comply with NEC Article 215-3 for Overcurrent Protection for Feeders.
Note that this box has the cable inlet underneath the bottom making it weather proof even when a cable is connected. But for easy connection of the cable the box has to be mounted high enough to see the bottom.
WARNING: Never install this inlet box without connecting it to a transfer switch. If this product is not used with a transfer switch, it is not allowed by the National Electrical Code to supply power from a portable generator to a premises wiring system because of safety concerns. These concerns include the dangers of back feeding into the utility grid and possible damage when utility power is restored. Click here for more about safety.
