UTS10BI - APC 10-Circuit Universal Transfer Switch

This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/7/2011


Been looking at the UTS family of products.
I have a 8000 watt diesel generator that is part of my RV. It is 120V, 2 poll output - 60A total.
I have an 1800 watt inverter that is part of the same RV.

My question - Will the UTS accept / work with 2 poll 120V that does not make 240?

The manual says even for the 120V only unit that the 240 V must be connected from the utility. I have no issues with that. But when the utility is not working - I will have 1800 Watt 120 V inverter operating until I start the generator that is 120V - 30Amp times 2 = 60amp 120 -

Hi - did you figure this out? Was it the fuse?

Then it will not work -

http://www.cumminsonan.com/rv/products/dieselandhybrid/compare?gensetId=109&detail=true

THe Onan 8000 watt is 35A 2-pole, 1 phase.

Not sure why these UTS are made for 220V only - Most generators, computer equipment, etc - Until you get into big commercial things are 120.

the UTS6 - that says 120V - Also seems to require 2 phase...

If I miss understand / if these things can be used - Let me know.

I really liked the UPS feature, combined with generator input...

Thanks,

Doug

Hi bkmech, i would probably start be checking/ replacing the fuse on the corresponding circuit for that UTS. Typically that messages indicated that the fuse has blown. Hope this helps.

Actually, looking at the stats, it should work with that generator. The 2 poles are the two 180 degree phases. Just make sure you're using an actual 240 V circuit and not two 120 V circuits from the same pole of the generator.
