Generator control panel basics.
The fundamental purpose of a generator control panel is to automatically start and stop a generator’s motor. It engages and disengages the starter by using an automatic transfer switch, which tells the control panel when the generator needs to run. A generator control panel uses a series of switches and sensors to make sure the generator does not overheat, or speed up/slow down at the wrong times.
While it protects, controls and automates your generators and their engines, a generator control panel also allows you to safely monitor your generator, sometimes even remotely. With advanced control panels, you can monitor many details of your generator including wattage, voltage, amperage, frequency, and more.
Notable generator control panel features.
Generator control panels are available with either remote automatic or manual functionality, depending on what your requirements or preferences are. Automatic or remote generator control panels will utilize their sensors to detect a change in temperature or other parameters, and engage automatically. By combining your generator control panel with an automatic transfer switch, you can ensure a continuous flow of electricity in case of a power outage.
Common uses and applications for generator control panels are vast, as generators are used across nearly all sectors, and in any situation where one might need backup or emergency power.
