Pramac Honda 5.3kVA AVR Generator with Auto Start capability. The Pramac S5000 with a 3 Year Honda Australia Engine Warranty is a robust generator with all the top-class features required for domestic backup power for the home: a powerful and economical engine, a strong, modern design and a long-run 26.5L fuel tank. This unit is very popular for backup to off-grid solar applications and can also be used for Mains Power backup;
PRIMARY APPLICATIONS FOR THIS GENERATOR:
1) Backup to Off-Grid Solar: For backup power to off-grid solar systems, this generator requires a Pramac 2 Wire Auto Start Controller (see Accessories List above to add to your order). This controller connects between your Pramac generator and your solar system for automatic charging of your solar batteries when battery charge is low. A qualified solar installer / electrician is required to undertake the install and connection. Click on below image for a video demonstration:
2) Backup to Mains Power: For backup power to your home/building when there is a mains power blackout, this generator requires an Automatic Mains Failure (AMF) Panel (see Accessories List above to add to your order). This panel is also referred to as an 'Automatic Transfer Switch'. This AMF detects when there is a mains power failure, and signals to the generator to automatically start up to restore power to your home/building. Conversely, as soon as the AMF detects mains power returns, it stops the generator. A qualified electrician is required to undertake the install and connection.
ACCESSORY: AUTOMATIC MAINS FAILURE PANEL REQUIRED FOR MAINS POWER BACKUP

Together with the trusty electric start, a control panel that allows you to integrate the required accessories mentioned above, this is a high quality backup generator with a genuine Honda engine and national service network backing.
