Generac’s Power Zone Controller. Smarter. More Intuitive.

At its most basic, a generator is an engine and an alternator that together produce electricity. But what if that hardware could think? Could communicate? It can, thanks to its controller—the power that controls the brawn. That’s why generator controls matter. And Generac’s Power Zone® controller makes our generators smarter and more reliable.

So how does the Power Zone controller think? For starters, it can manage paralleling, automatic transfer switches, and manage the load when the gen-set is installed in an Modular Power System (MPS) configuration. No additional switchgear or paralleling controllers are required. And even in a single-node situation, the Power Zone works seamlessly with Generac automatic transfer switches for complete system integration.

But it is the Power Zone’s “communicative” nature that really sets it apart. Its 7-inch color touchscreen display operates like a smart-phone app. Let the Power Zone give you all the details you need about the gen-set, from general system status to faults and alarms. Scalable and configurable I/O amplifies the controller’s voice, giving you both remote monitoring and remote generator controls, all at no additional cost. And because service techs can also keep an eye on the generator, maintenance becomes a proactive — not reactive — proposition.


  • Remote monitoring and customization control with no additional cost
  • Improved diagnostics and new onboard self-help manuals
  • Connectivity and easy-to-use operator interface
  • Improved reporting and log history
  • Make maintenance a proactive proposition
  • Expandable and flexible

How to Prepare for Summer Brownouts

When it comes to high temperatures, the risk of brownouts increases drastically. Brownouts aren’t quite as severe as blackouts, but they can still cause devastating service interruptions. Instead of a full-on outage, brownouts are temporary - often sudden - drops in voltage, lasting for minutes or hours.

There are two main causes of summer brownouts, overloaded power grids and inclement weather.

When the temperature in the summer rises, homeowners and business owners increase the use of their air conditioning systems which require a high level of energy. This overloads electrical systems and the generating facility (power utility) is unable to provide sufficient power which results in a voltage sag. If the voltage sag’s duration last longer than a minute then the result can be a brownout condition that can lead to complete power interruptions.

Don't be left in the dark this summer. Kelly Generator & Equipment, Inc. can provide you a range of power solutions for a variety of commercial, industrial and life critical applications. With diverse generator options, high-tech mobile products as well as cutting-edge transfer switches and accessories, we make sure power is always available to our customers and their businesses.
