Conext Automatic Generator Start
Conext Automatic Generator Start
Automatically start and stop a generator to meet power needs
The ConextTM Automatic Generator Start (AGS) can automatically activate or stop a generator in response to changing
power requirements. An excellent addition to an off-grid or backup power system, the AGS seamlessly connects to the
XanbusTM network and shares status information with all other devices on the network. It can monitor a set of system
user-programmable parameters such as battery voltage, state of charge or grid power and can activate the generator in
response to any changes. The AGS can also be configured remotely using the Conext System Control Panel (SCP) or
Conext ComBox to engage a generator, and can assist an inverter/charger when output power demands are high.
