Is this basically a interlock set up? With only one switch, that is what it looks like. Still a bit cheaper than installing a transfer box. But then, they call it a transfer box. Shrug

Not a clue, sorry

That's a supply side transfer box, that will switch a complete box over to generator power. downfalls are no load balancing, and you will not know if the power comes back on, and only a 60 amp service.
