Both models are powered by a 4-cycle, spark-ignited engine with a closed-loop elec- tronic fuel system and have been tested to perform in extreme temperature and high-altitude applications. Durable enclosures are built to withstand rain, snow and winds up to 150 mph. Units have side-access panels for easy main- tenance. Both the QuietConnect and PowerConnect generators meet all EPA emissions regulations for emergency and stationary generators. Circle 30 on inquiry card Redesigned system is half the original size BRIGGS & STRATTON redesigned its 12-kilowatt Standby Generator System to have a 50 percent smaller footprint while still providing whole-house power. The smaller foot- print provides more placement options around a home while achieving a National Fire Protection Agency standard approval, allowing it to be placed as close as 18 in. from the home. A redesigned control panel includes a scrolling LED board; the premium-grade engine comes with an electric governing system for engine speed control; and a galvanneal steel enclosure provides rust-resistant protection. The generator system comes with a limited five-year parts and three-year labor limited warranty. Circle 27 on inquiry card Whole-house standby power covers major mechanicals, sensitive electronics The Kohler 24RCL from KOHLER GENERATORS meets the growing demands for power that larger homes and small businesses require. With an industrial-grade engine, the stationary generator is designed for whole house power — including major mechanicals to sensitive electronics — and has a three-fan, automotive-style cooling system which runs at 61 decibels during normal operation and 55 decibels during weekly exercise. The standby generator automati- cally turns on within seconds of a power outage, and it runs on self-feeding fuels like liquid propane or natural gas. Circle 31 on inquiry card Air- or liquid- cooled generator types available SERGEN Series Fully Automatic Home Generators from RHEEM are available in 8-10-12-16-20-kW air-cooled generators or 35-45- 60-kW liquid-cooled generators. Electronics detect a utility power outage and automatically start the generator whether homeowners are home or away. Rust-resistant, galvanneal steel enclosures are made from the same materials used in the automotive industry. The air-cooled generators are tested against the NFPA 37 standard, allowing them to be placed 18 in. from the home, while the liquid-cooled generators run using natural gas or liquid propane. Circle 28 on inquiry card Monitor generator status from computer, tablet, smartphone GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS unveils its 22-kW Guardian Series air-cooled home standby generator, which cools air by flowing it through the generator's enclosure. Featuring an evolution controller with a dual-line multilingual LCD display, the standby generator is capable of mon- itoring history and maintenance logs, generator functions and a built-in hour meter to monitor run times. The unit is compatible with Mobile Link cellular remote monitoring system, which, sold separately, allows homeowners to know the status of their generator using a smartphone, tablet, computer or via the Mobile Link app. Circle 29 on inquiry card
