The Champion Power Equipment 100177 Home Standby Generator System – 8.5 kW Home Standby Generator and ATS50 (50 Amp, NEMA 3R Automatic Transfer Switch) – is The Simple Solution to a power outage. Security, convenience, health and safety are all things that every homeowner holds dear. Don’t put these things at risk during a power outage. Millions of individuals suffer from the effects of a power outage annually. No electricity means no lights, no heat or air conditioning, no internet, no refrigeration, etc. A power outage lasting only a few days can also cost the average family thousands in repairs. If power goes out a Champion Home Standby Generator will keep the lights on, run heat and air conditioning, keep security systems operating, power major appliances, keep the home business operating, power a sump pump, protect against frozen pipes, give you peace of mind while you’re away, and much more. No more searching for flashlights, no extension cords, no refueling in the dark. If utility power is interrupted, the Home Standby Generator will automatically detect the outage. In a matter of seconds it will start and deliver continuous, reliable power to your home – ensuring the things you need most stay on. When the utility power is restored to your home, the generator will automatically return to standby mode. It will also automatically perform weekly self-diagnostic tests to assure that it is ready and waiting for the next power outage. The generator is permanently installed outside of your home and connects to your home’s natural gas line or propane supply so you never have to worry about refueling. The 8.5 kW Home Standby Generator provides 8,500 watts of continuous power on propane and 7,500 watts on natural gas. The generator comes with an innovative 24V starting system which is designed to start reliably in freezing temperatures down to -22º F – no additional battery warming kit needed. Our innovative gullwing design provides easy access to the engine and control panel for simple installation and maintenance. The enclosure’s all-weather design is rust and corrosion resistant and will protect the generator from the elements. The generator also comes with an all-weather composite mounting pad for easy installation. Champion designed a low-tone muffler that reduces noise through a unique sound attenuating baffle system. This, along with the sound dampening liner, makes the 8.5 kW Home Standby Generator very quiet operating at just 59.5 dBA. The generator is powered by a Champion 439cc single-cylinder OHV engine. The Champion designed alternator is made of 100% copper windings that produce less than 5% total harmonic distortion (THD) to ensure safe use with even the most sensitive electronics. The ATS50 automatic transfer switch operates a 50 amp, 10 circuit load. It is ideal for homeowners who want to power emergency essentials during a power outage as opposed to the whole house. It is housed in a NEMA 3R rated enclosure for outdoor use. Champion Power Equipment is a market leader in power generation equipment.
