FEATURES
¡INNOVATIVE DESIGN & PROTOTYPE TESTING are key components
of GENERAC’S success in “IMPROVING POWER BY DESIGN.”
But it doesn’t stop there. Total commitment to component testing,
reliability testing, environmental testing, destruction and life testing,
plus testing to applicable CSA, NEMA, EGSA, and other standards,
allows you to choose GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS with the
confidence that these systems will provide superior performance.
¡ T RUE POWER® ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY: Superior harmonics
and sine wave form produce less than 5% Total Harmonic Distortion for
utility quality power. This allows confident operation of sensitive electronic
equipment and micro-chip based appliances, such as variable speed HVAC.
¡ TEST CRITERIA:

PROTOTYPE TESTED
 SYSTEM TORSIONAL TESTED
 NEMA MG1-22 EVALUATION
 MOTOR STARTING ABILITY
¡SOLID-STATE, FREQUENCY COMPENSATED VOLTAGE REGULATION.
This state-of-the-art power maximizing regulation system is standard on
all Generac models. It provides optimized FAST RESPONSE to changing
load conditions and MAXIMUM MOTOR STARTING CAPABILITY by
electronically torque-matching the surge loads to the engine.
¡SINGLE SOURCE SERVICE RESPONSE from Generac’s dealer network
provides parts and service know-how for the entire unit, from the engine
to the smallest electronic component. You are never on your own when
you own a GENERAC POWER SYSTEM.
¡GENERAC TRANSFER SWITCHES. Long life and reliability are
synonymous with GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS. One reason for this
confidence is that the GENERAC product line includes its own transfer
systems and controls for total system compatibility.

•Generac (OHVI) Design
Maximizes engine “breathing” for increased fuel efficiency. Plateau honed cylinder walls and plasma
molly rings help engine run cooler, reducing oil consumption. Because heat is the primary cause of
engine wear, the OHVI has a significantly longer life than competitive engines.
•”Spiny-lok” cast iron cylinder walls
Rigid construction and added durability provide long engine life. ,
•Electronic ignition, spark advance and
compression release
These features combine to assure smooth, quick starting every time.
•Full pressure lubrication system
Superior lubrication to all vital bearings means better performance, less maintenance and
significantly longer engine life. Now featuring a 2 year/200 hour oil change interval.
•Low oil pressure shutdown system
Superior shutdown protection prevents catastrophic engine damage due to low oil.
•High temperature shutdown
Prevents damage due to overheating.
•Revolving field
Allows for smaller, light weight unit that operates 25% more efficiently than a revolving armature generator.
•Skewed stator
Produces a smooth output waveform for compatibility with electronic equipment.
•Displaced phase excitation
Maximizes motor starting capability. Provides more surge capability than brushless generator designs.
•Automatic voltage regulation
Regulates the output voltage to ±2% prevents damaging voltage spikes.
•UL 2200 Listed
For your safety
•Fully Automatic
Transfers your vital electrical loads to the energized source of power.
•Remote Mounting
Mounts near your existing distribution panel for simple, low cost installation.
•UL Listed
For your safety-
•Manual/Auto/Off switch
Selects the operating mode.
•Utility voltage sensing
Constantly monitors utility voltage, setpoints 65% dropout, 75% pick-up, of standard voltage.
•Utility interrupt delay
Prevents nuisance start-ups of the engine, adjustable 10-30 seconds.
•Engine warm-up
Ensures engine is ready to assume the load, setpoint approximately 10 seconds.
•Engine cool-down
Allows engine to cool prior to shutdown, setpoint approximately 1 minute.
•Seven day exerciser
Operates engine to prevent oil seal drying and damage between power outages.
•Timed Trickle Battery charger
Maintains battery amperage to insure starting.
•Main Line Circuit Breaker
Protects generator from overload.
•Weather protective enclosure
Ensures protection against mother nature. Hinged key locking roof panel for security.
Lift-out front for easy access to all routine maintenance items. Electrostatically applied
textured epoxy paint for added durability. Model 05505 has an aluminum enclosure.
•Enclosed critical grade muffler
Quiet, critical grade muffler is mounted inside the unit to prevent injuries.
•Small, compact, attractive
Makes for an easy, eye appealing installation.
•Pre-wired External Connection Box
Easy Installation - Virtually all hardware included, plus step-by-step photographed Installation Guide.
•1’ Flexible Fuel Line Connector
•Composite Mounting Pad
•Pre-wired conduits
•UL Listed wire nuts

Rating definitions - Standby: Applicable for supplying emergency power for the duration of the utility power outage. No overload capability is available for this rating. (All ratings in accordance with
BS5514, ISO3046 and DIN6271). * Maximum wattage and current are subject to and limited by such factors as fuel Btu content, ambient temperature, altitude, engine power and condition, etc. Maximum
power decreases about 3.5 percent for each 1,000 feet above sea level; and also will decrease about 1 percent for each 12° C (10° F) above 15.5° C (60°F).
