High Capacity Power Inlet Kit
175A or 350A Modular
with mating plug and optional enclosure
This unique kit provides a simple way to add a high capacity power inlet to many transfer switches or junction boxes. Perfect for pto generators larger than about 15kW (or any large generator) where a temporary removable connection is needed. Allows generator cable to quickly plug into switch enclosure or junction box enclosure rather than hard wiring to terminal lugs inside. Easily unplugged using the heavy duty handle included with plug.
Kit includes 4 pole modular connector housing, 4 conducting tips, reducing sleeves, mounting brackets and panel, hinged cover and mating plug for end of generator cable. Everything is provided with kit except for welding cable, (4) 1/4-20 screws to mount panel, and plug for generator end of cable. That plug is usually provided with the generator. The tips are designed for use with extra-flexible welding cable and can be crimped and/or soldered. Install in switch side wall by rough-cutting a rectangular hole and drilling four holes for mounting screws to hold panel on outside of enclosure. Note that if panel is too large to fit on side of switch the panel can be discarded if the rectangular hole is cut exactly to match the panel. If you do not want to mount on switch enclosure, or the switch is not close to where you want to operate the generator then purchase our optional outdoor enclosure below and you can locate the inlet anywhere.
Detailed instructions provided that explain assembly and how to properly make the cross-over cable to connect to the high capacity modular outlet on most pto generators to this inlet. Available in two sizes: 175 amp max and 350 amp max. Note that actual ampacity depends on wire size used. For additional details see connector brochures for 175A or 350A. Made in USA
