The generator has an outdoor weatherproof enclosure and is placed on a pad typically along the house sidewall near the AC equipment and the utility meters. The generator can operate on either natural gas or liquid propane and is connected to the available source of fuel. Alternately, diesel fueled generators are also available but their use is not customary in residential applications. The generator is also connected to an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) that controls the system and is mounted on a wall typically near the main electrical panel(s). The ATS transfers power to an emergency panel that contains selected critical emergency circuits or, if desired with larger generators, to the entire house load.

Your generator system is fully automatic and will operate even when no one is home. The ATS continuously monitors your home’s power. When utility power is interrupted, it immediately senses the voltage drop and remotely starts the generator (internal 12V battery and charger) safely transferring power to the emergency panel… all within seconds of the outage.

Whenever power is restored, the ATS automatically transfers back to utility power, remotely shuts down the generator (after a brief cool down period), and resets itself to standby mode…. ready for the next power outage.

The system is preset to self-exercise weekly for optimum reliability and performance.
