How Do I Automatically Start My Generator? 0

Setting up Auto-Start on an Aurora Generator with a DynaGen Controller is simple. Here is how it works. With the generator set to "auto", it will remain on standby until PIN 7 on the din terminal block is connected to ground PIN 9.

There is no power needed here. Just a dry contact from a relay on your ATS or remote that closes a connection to start and opens it to stop. That's a two-wire start.

For advanced installations, if auto-start should happen when a "Float, Open, Battery or Ground connection is made instead, it can be configured in the DynaGen Controller Menu.
