3 pole 150-200 amp GE breaker available

Hello,

I am trying to make it so that this breaker box can have an interlock kit on it and so if the power goes out I can hook it up to a diesel generator. The breaker box is 3 phase and 200 amp though and I will need a breaker in the box that is around that rating (3 pole 150-200 amp GE breaker). Anybody know where I can find this item and/or is there a better way of going about it?

Many Thanks!

You might be better off looking at a 3 pole transfer switch.

3 phase power is not usually found in a home so this must be a commercial building. 3 phase connections are not straight forward as the source may be a Y or delta arrangement.

A 3 phase manual transfer switch could be $1k and up.
The Winco model is $1500.
The problem with a transfer switch is where to put it and service rated use.

No one advertises a 3 phase interlock kit.
The one company has what looks like may work. You could contact the company directly.
GE 200A kit
