Amel 55 generator autostart?

Billy Newport

Anyone used the generator auto start? When does it start? I'm running a test now, letting the batteries drop down. I'm guessing its voltage triggered. Anyone know what voltage the genset starts at?

Just wondering when to abort the test.

Billy, I’ve never used it but during the Amel training, I was told it comes on at 70% state of charge.  One issue is that it will always run the generator for 2 hours once it is triggered.  Shutting off the generator doesn’t avoid the two hours.  Cheers. Joerg
