Generator transfer switch connection
I recently purchased a Yahama EF2400iSHC invertor/generator to provide emergency power to a side-by-side refrigertor, lights, a couple of TVs, a few computers, a microwave and a toaster oven. I will probably power the refrigetor most of the time and power the others with whatever remains. The specs of the unit are below.
2400 watts max output
2000 watts rated output
16.7 / 20 amps @ 120V
I am planning to have an eletrician install a transfer switch. The generator only has two 5-20R, 20 Amp AC outlets. I found that most of the transfer switches and inlet boxes have L14-20 or L14-30 connections. Is it safe or recommended to buy an adapter to connect the Yamaha to the transfer switch by one of the 5-20R outlets? If this is problematic I may return the EF2400iSHC and get a Yamaha EF3000iS as it provides more power and can connect to a transfer switch without an adapter.
