The XW+ AGS is a Xanbus-enabled device that can automatically activate a generator to provide an XW+ or SW Series Inverter/Charger with power to recharge depleted batteries or assist with heavy loads. Compatible with popular generators, the XW+ AGS adds intelligence to power management and eliminates time spent monitoring batteries and inverter loads. The XW+ AGS can be configured to start the generator in response to low battery voltage, thermostat operation, or load size on the inverter battery. A quiet-time setting prevents the generator from starting at inconvenient times. The LCD display shows the status of the XW+ AGS, while all user-defined settings are programmed through the XW+ System Control Panel. Interfaces with: XW+ Hybrid Inverter/Charger(s), XW Solar Charge Controller(s), and XW+ SCP. Also works with the new Conext SW line of inverters.
