CONVERTERS AND CONTROLS
Generator Start Controls
It is very important to prevent battery banks from being discharged too far. These specialized controllers send a start-up signal to your back-up or remote power generator when the battery bank reaches a given voltage set point. Look for a unit that is compatible with your generator set (call us if you have questions about compatibility) and that will interface best with your energy system.
AGS - RV Auto Generator Start
The Magnum Automatic Generator Start (AGS) is designed to automatically start your coach generator based on low battery condition or the inside temperature of the coach, and is compatible with most major generators, including Onan, Powertech, Generac, and Weterbeke.
You can set the battery start voltage from 10-12 VDC or 20-22 VDC, the start temperature from 65-85°F, the run time from one to five hours, and the quiet time with an easy-to-set clock. Automatic Generator Start settings do not interfere with the manual start/stop operation of the generator. Just use any existing start/stop switch in your coach.
Two models are available. The standalone version of the AGS works well for installation and operation without an inverter. The network version of the AGS allows operation of the AGS via the ME Series remote panel.
