Automatic Home Generators Made More Affordable – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 25, 2016

Generac has two technologies that make installing an automatic home backup generator easier and more affordable for homeowners.

Generac’s Smart Management Modules (SMM) are a load management system that allow homeowners to purchase a lower kilowatt automatic backup power system that fits within their budget, while the new 16 circuit NEMA 3R rated automatic transfer switch helps reduce installation costs for customers with an electrical panel located outside the home.

The Smart Management Modules and 16 circuit NEMA 3R transfer switch ensure that automatic backup power systems are available for all homeowners.

Smart Management Module (SMM)

Generac’s new Smart Management Modules (SMM) are a load management system that manages backup power to essential circuits identified by the homeowner, and autonomously pushes available power to non-essential circuits, as it becomes available.

The Smart Management Modules are wire-free, which makes them easier to install since no control wires are required, and helps lower installation costs. Up to eight Smart Management Modules can be installed with a compatible automatic transfer switch, to manage power loads. The Smart Management Module technology is protected in a NEMA 3R weather-proof enclosure, making each unit compatible for indoor and outdoor installations. Additional features include an LED indicator light, which allows homeowners to verify which essential circuits are receiving power, as well as a lockout switch that prevents unwanted operation of circuits while operating on generator power.

New 16 Circuit Weather-Proof Automatic Transfer Switch

The new 16 circuit NEMA 3R rated automatic transfer switch is weather-proof, and can withstand high winds, rain, and winter storms. Electrical circuits are protected by an aluminum corrosion-resistant enclosure, and it accepts breakers from multiple manufacturers. Power can be provided to up to 16 essential circuits in a home by using this new transfer switch and customers can expand their backup coverage to 24 circuits, through the use of tandem breakers.

Prior to these options, homeowners without a basement or interior utility closet had to purchase a costly, custom-built subpanel that could be installed outside the home.

enCUBE Generator Produces Zero Emissions and Offers Solar Charging – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 04, 2016

Kohler Power Equipment has more to its portable generator offering with the enCUBE (energy cube), a battery-powered, indoor/outdoor inverter generator ideal for camping, tailgating, backup at home, light construction sites and most other locations where clean and reliable power is needed. enCUBE provides 1,440 watts of continuous power and can surge up to 3,600 watts for thee milliseconds or 1,800 watts for ten minutes to support motor starting. enCUBE comes with multiple outlets, including a pair each of USB ports for smaller electronic devices, 12V DC ports for medium-sized electronics, and 120V AC outlets for large electronics, appliances and an assortment of tools. The new generator can be charged with a standard 120V AC wall outlet or any solar panel. It offers silent operation, requires no fuel, and produces zero emissions.

Producing zero emissions is a significant benefit because – in addition to being a more sustainable option – it offer the flexibility of being able to use the unit both indoors and outdoors. enCUBE is a compact power plant on wheels. Whether it’s powering a refrigerator during an outage or a circular saw at a worksite, the unit provides fast and easy access to clean power in a manner that’s easier on the environment. We anticipate strong response to enCUBE from the growing number of builders and contractors seeking green products and other sustainable solutions for the jobsite.

enCUBE is an ideal alternative to popular 2000 watt engine-driven generator models. It has a comparable price, but eliminates the noise, gasoline, toxic emissions, and oil changes required with those units. enCUBE was designed around safety and convenience. In addition to being safe for the environment, it also protects users with built-in GFCI and guards against overloading and overheating for safe and reliable performance.

enCUBE is easy to move and position due to two large built-in rubber wheels, a retractable pull handle, and recessed lifting handles. In addition to its mobility and variety of power options, enCUBE incorporates a number of other unique features, such as a built-in storage lid for keys, power cords and other personal items. The unit also integrates an LED screen, which provides continuous details about charging input, power output, battery status and run-time to help users maximize performance.

enCUBE is a portable power solution that’s easy to use, easy on the environment, and delivers the wide variety of power options that end users are looking for today. This new generator checks all of these boxes and more.
