The CONEXT Auto Generator Start (AGS) will automatically activate a generator to provide an SW Series Hybrid Inverter/Charger with power to recharge a depleted battery bank or provide additional power for heavy loads. The AGS adds intelligence to generator management, thereby eliminating time spent monitoring batteries and inverter loads. It does this by continuously monitoring the battery voltage, state-of-charge, or the inverter charge mode, starting and stopping the generator when the battery needs additional charging. The AGS will also start the generator to assist the system?s inverter/charger(s) when output power demands are high. The AGS can be customized to suit each user?s preferences. The user can define whether the generator should be activated by low-battery voltage, state-of-charge, thermostat operation, or load on the inverter(s). A quiet-time setting prevents the generator from starting at inconvenient times. LED lights display the status of the AGS, while all user-defined settings are programmed through the AGS system control panel (865-1060-01).
