Does anyone know the type of cable that is used for the transfer switch to a Generac gen ? Is it left up to the ec doing the job or is there a certain type recommended by Generac ? This for power and controls to the ats for gen. The ats is for a whole house gen.

If it helps you can run Romex from the ats towards the generator until you go outside. Assuming of course the route is appropriate for NM. Then switch over to conduit and Thhn. I usually run two 14-3 NM for controls and a larger Romex for power sized for the generator output breaker. I would use SER aluminum in place of the Romex if larger than 6-3
