Schneider Electric RNW865106001 XW+ and SW Auto Generator Start
The XW+ and SW Auto Generator Start (XW+ and SW AGS) will automatically activate a generator to provide an Schneider Series Hybrid Inverter/Charger with power to recharge a depleted battery bank or provide additional power for heavy loads. The XW+ and SW 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+ and SW AGS will also start the generator to assist the system’s inverter/charger(s) when output power demands are high.
The XW+ and SW 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 XW+ and SW AGS, while all user-defined settings are programmed through the Scheider Electric System Control Panel (SCP).
Compatibility – the XW+ and SW AGS connects to other Xanbus™-enabled XW System devices without requiring additional hubs, control cards, or other device-specific control panels
Works with AC or DC generators with either two-wire or three-wire start controls
Configurability – comprehensive customizable triggers based on low-battery voltage, change in charging state, high inverter load, thermostat signals, planned exercise periods, max run-time, and quiet-time settings
Non-volatile memory – preserves XW+ and SW AGS settings even if the network power is interrupted or network communication is disrupted
Note: The XW+ and SW AGS requires an XW+ and SW System Control Panel (SCP) for configuration and monitoring.
