Overview

Model # 6854 Store SKU # 1001151353

Generac's 6854 HomeLink Upgradeable Manual Transfer Switch is a pre-wired electrical device that's installed next to your home's circuit panel. During an outage, it delivers power to hard-wired appliances (such as furnace, well pump and lights) with the push of a button, safely and easily eliminating the need for multiple extension cords. It comes standard with 8 circuits, expandable to 10 circuits. When you're ready to install an automatic home standby generator, a certified electrician will change out the panel located in the HomeLink with an automatic switch upgrade panel and new faceplate and it's ready to be connected to a home standby generator (11 kW maximum).

  1. Upgradeable so it can later be converted to an automatic home standby transfer switch
  1. Power source indicator lights inform you when you have utility or generator power present
  1. Powers hard-wired appliances such as your furnace, well pump and lights
  1. 8 circuits, expandable to 10 circuits accepts standard, tandem, GFCI and Arc Fault breakers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, Easy install Panel arrived in 7-8 days, no import or additional charges. I hooked it up myself following Canadian electrical Codes. in Canada you can-not join cables together in your main panel, you will require external junction boxes. The supplied instructions are not great, Find a YouTube video with local Canadian codes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the trick I purchased this unit because I have a shop that is a distance from the house. It was not economical to run a separate line from the house standby to operate the shop equipment during power outages. The Homelink panel wired in neat and cleanly to the shop main panel, and works as it should. Loved that except for a length of cable to connect the outside generator box to the transfer switch, it all comes in one box. Highly recommend it.

Is the flex hose always mounted on the left side of the transfer switch, and how long is the flex line and length of provided wire?

Asked by: Tomegunz
For model #6854, the hose is mounted on the left side. The provided cord is 10 feet, and the pre-wire whip is two feet long.
