Feedback Needed! UTS10BI & eu2000i

    Has anyone actually installed this combination and have it working???

    You CAN use an EU2000 with the UTS10BI.  While it's true that the UTS10 wants 240V on the utility side, and it will not power up with a split 120V  from the EU2000 on backup 1 (generator input), it WILL run with a UPS connected to backup 2.  You must use a UPS for this to work.  If the power goes out, UPS keeps the electronics in the UTS hot.  I took a single phase 120V source, doubled the hot legs into the backup 1 input and the "generator" input was recognized.  Now, that being said if you do this, you best not try to power anything on the 240V circuit.  I decided on this UTS because it had 8 120V circuits available while the UTS6H only has 6.  I have no 240V devices in my house, so this works great for me.  In theory you can use circuits 9 and 10 as 120V as well if you want but only if the "generator" is running, not the UPS.  My deal was that I wanted the ability to use a 220V generator later in life, and this was a great solution.

    I guess its time to order an eu6500is then. I got my UTS10BI on the cheap, $250, so not going to replace it with a 6 circuit model just to accommodate my eu2000i.

    Electrician was here last week and installed the unit. I have an APC Smart-UPS 2200 battery backup configured as backup2, and the outdoor plug is made by Reliance.

    the EU2000I is only a 120V generator and the UST10BI is 240V so I am thinking it'd have to run from the Backup1 (generator) source..? am I making any sense?

  • Sifter

    Can you explain a bit more on why backup1 would be used? Would all circuits be available?

  • ipicKedawinna

    i went back and checked again but i am getting more feedback that this would not even work because the UTS10BI requires 240v to power on and you cannot provide it power from the 120v generator.

    I went through this as well as I only have a 120V Inverter generator. I had to use a UTS6H which was a pain to get ahold of.
