Schneider Electric Conext XW+ Automatic Generator Start (AGS)

The Conext XW Auto Generator Start (AGS) will automatically activate a generator to provide an XW Series Hybrid Inverter/Charger with power to recharge a depleted battery bank or provide additional power for heavy loads. The XW AGS adds intelligence to generator management, thereby eliminating time spent monitoring batteries and inverter loads. It does this by continuously monitoring the battery voltage, state-of-charge, or the inverter charge mode, starting and stopping the generator when the battery needs additional charging. The XW AGS will also start the generator to assist the system’s inverter/charger(s) when output power demands are high.

The AGS can be customized to suit each user’s preferences. The user can define whether the generator should be activated by low-battery voltage, state-of-charge, thermostat operation, or load on the inverter(s). A quiet-time setting prevents the generator from starting at inconvenient times. LED lights display the status of the AGS, while all user-defined settings are programmed through the XW system control panel (SCP).

Works with multiple Xanbus devices on a Xanbus network: Schneider Electric Conext XW/XW+, SW, MPPT 60-150, MPPT 80-600, SCP & ComBox
