existing UTS10BI adding an additional UTS6BI in parallel

This was originally posted on APC forums on 9/7/2011


I have an existing UTS10BI with the hard wired kit for a 50 amp generator. I have a 10,000 watt standby generator, can I add an additional UTS6BI to the feed from the generator?

Thanks for any help or assistance you can provide me.

Hi jimmac, the UTS unit are meant to be wired directly to a sub panel per electrical code. That being said if you have a way to wire the uts6bi to another panel and a have a way to get the generator output to it, then it could work. All of this is subject to local electrical code, so you might have to check on that as well. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response on this. I have now installed the second UTS on a sub-panel, when powering the UTS6BI from the sub-panel using a 20 amp two pole ganged breaker, and delivering 120V power on each of the two legs both "5 out" and "6 out"...the UTS will not power on? I metered out the spade lugs on the board both have 120V, but UTS will not power up? When I plug in a UPS to the UPS input, the UTS does power on and allow programming. Can you help me out with this one? I do have a call into tech support and a case number...but was cut off on the phone with a transfer to tech support.

Thanks,
Jim M
