The 6296 is not just a 60 amp switch, it is a safety device that stops backfeeds with the help of mechanically interlocked generator and utility breakers. It has 12 circuits, already a versatile switch, but it has interchangeable circuit breakers allowing for easy reconfiguration, replacing, and it can expand to accommodate up to 16 circuits. With this unit you will be able to directly power your furnace, well pump, and septic pump so your world doesn't stop when the power goes out.
