What size (dia in mm) are the metal bars in the frame/cage around the unit, please ?
Hi and thanks for your inquiry. The metal frame for this unit consists of 35mm diameter tubing.
We have solar panels on our house. Do we need to get an electrician to hook it into our metre box? What happens when the power fails, do we just start it ourselves?
Hi There, thanks for your inquiry. The Pramac auto-start generator range are very popular as a backup to off-grid solar set ups. Via a two-wire auto start controller the generator is connected to your solar battery set up (this is undertaken by a solar installer / electrician). When your batteries get low on charge, the generator will automatically start up to re-charge your battery packs and the automatically stop again once your batteries are back to full charge.
If you would like to discuss further, please give us a call on 1300 400 122 and we can help you out.
Many thanks, Steve
I can see that with an auto-start generator, an “AMF Panel” is required for mains power backup, and for solar back up a “2 wire auto start controller” is needed. But if I’m on solar and mains, do I need both to go with my auto-start generator?
Hi, firstly you are completely correct; to use your auto-start generator for automatic power backup, you need either:
- An AMF panel for automatic backup to mains power, or
- A Two-wire auto start controller for automatic backup to off-grid solar systems
For homes on solar and on mains power:
In this case, the solar charge is either used within the household consumption or fed back into the grid, meaning there are no storage batteries like there is for an off-grid solar system. So,if you require an auto-start generator to automatically start up to restore power to your home (which is on solar and mains power), you would need an accompanying AMF panel - an electrician would undertake the connection. When a blackout occurs, the AMF panel would signal for the generator to start and restore power to your home.
For homes with an off-grid solar system:
The Two-Wire auto start controller is only for off-grid solar systems, whereby the controller is connected to generator and the solar battery system. When the batteries run low on power, the controller signals to the generator to start up and restore power to the batteries.
