Discuss looking for an interlock kit in the American Professional Electrical Advice Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

hi all,

we have a very old house which also happens to have a very old breaker box. I can't for the life of me identify the proper interlock kit for the model of the breaker box I have.

thanks for any advice.

I could not post all the details on the original thread, so adding it here .

my breaker seems to be a Federal Pacific one. see pics above.

the site nooutage dot com says they don't have them either for my breaker box made by federal pacific.

are my only options to go the transfer switch route, find an outdoor one like TRC1005CR from Reliance Controls, or don't backfeed the generator into the house and instead run cables to the portable AC and Fridge as and if when needed. I don't want to create my own interlock kit (which would be very easy with some sheet metal) since it would not be up to code.
