I have more or less the same box.

It makes sense that a solution might be to interrupt the AC in this box trough a relais.

This will be the road to a solutions.

Id be reluctant to put a contacter in the control box because its prone to heat and vibration but it is the obvious and neatest location. I prefer control boxes to be outside the sound shield like on the smaller ( 12kva) Koehler gensets. I work in the tropics where 25C is considered cool and the climate in a sound enclosure is quite demanding. We use a cooling fan on the control box on NLs because AVRs are sensitive and expensive

Thanks and you're right.
I thinks one ore to wires will be sufficient because there is already a connector/relay in de CB.

Re: TSC Northern Lights

Probably best to leave up to the installers to take care of the wiring.
