Generac Generators: Best-in-Class Features

Posted On: November 19, 2014

What Makes Generac Generators the Industry Leader?

Generac’s generators feature sophisticated technology that make them the most advanced, yet easy-to-use generators on the market. With Mobile Link™ Technology, ultra-quiet operation, advanced control operation, and so much more, Generac generator features far supersede industry competitors.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the specific Generac generator features and how they compare:

Controls:
Generac’s Nexus Controller has a user-friendly trilingual LCD display, and controls for programmable diagnostics and information at-a-glance. Sophisticated codes can alert users to generator status at all times.

There is a Manual/Auto/Off switch that determines how the generators start and stop. The Auto switch allows the controller to automatically start and stop the generator if the utility voltage is disconnected.

There are also advanced power sensing features in the Nexus controller. When the electric utility’s power lines drop by sixty percent or more, the controller identifies the condition as a power outage and initiates the generator start sequence. The controller also self-maintains. Once per week for 12 minutes, the controller starts the engine and runs it long enough to circulate oil and prevent damage to engine seals.

Enclosure:
Generac ensures its generators are protected from inclement weather. Generac offers a weather-resistant enclosure for all their standby generators. The RhinoCoat finish system uses a process that evenly joins paint particles to every part of the metal surface. This allows for a more consistent coverage to all surfaces. The RhinoCoat is made of sturdy galvanneal steel.

Generac also offers premium aluminum enclosures for its residential standby generators. These enclosures are rust and corrosion resistant. For high humidity conditions aluminum enclosures are recommended to ensure decades of worry free service.

Remote Monitoring with Mobile Link™ Technology:
Built for generators with 8-150 kW, the Mobile Link Monitoring System is the new cellular remote that lets customers check on their Generac standby generator’s status from any location. It provides more than 40 customizable messages about the status of the generator.

NEXUS Wireless Remote Monitor:
Used for generators with 8-150 kW, the NEXUS provides visual and audio alerts when your generator requires maintenance. The NEXUS is small and compact and has a magnetic back for refrigerator mounting and easy access.

The Advanced NEXUS Wireless has an LCD display and is AC powered with battery backup and a cradle for desk or wall mounting. The Advanced NEXUS features a permanent time/date stamped history of generator events such as starting and stopping. There is also graphing capability for trending of engine RPM, voltage, and battery.

Quiet Operation:
Guardian Series enclosures contain sound reducing foam panels. The QuietSource Series generators have a low-speed engine that makes them ultra quiet. These features ensure Generac’s generators are quieter than the competition.

Generac’s generators feature state-of-the-art technology. Owners can receive status updates no matter where they are. These generators operate quietly and even contain enclosures that protect them from inclement weather.
