Advanced Paralleling Gen-Set Controllers


Mains (Utility) Controller
The G8660 is a ATS / Mains (Utility) controller with integral heater designed to work with the G8600 that is configured for use as a multi-set controller. The G8660 allows multiple generators to synchronise with a mains (utility) supply and controls switching power between generator and mains (utility) sources, without loss of supply to the load.

DC Supply

Continuous Voltage Rating
8 V to 35 V DC continuous

Cranking Dropouts
Able to survive 0 V for 100 mS, providing supply was at least 10 V before dropout and supply recovers to 5 V. This is achieved without the need for internal batteries. LEDs and backlight will not be maintained during cranking.

Maximum Operating Current
700 mA at 12 V, 350 mA at 24 V

Maximum Standby Current
350 mA at 12 V, 190 mA at 24 V
