Pramac Lombardini 8.8kVA AVR Diesel Generator with Auto Start capability. The P9000 diesel generator represents the leading edge of back-up power technology. This super quiet unit is ideal for home and small business back-up applications. This unit is popular for automatic backup applications either for off-grid solar or mains power backup;
PRIMARY APPLICATIONS FOR THIS GENERATOR:
1) Backup to Off-Grid Solar: For backup power to off-grid solar systems, this generator requires a Pramac 2 Wire Auto Start Controller (see Accessories List above to add to your order). This controller connects between your Pramac generator and your solar system for automatic charging of your solar batteries when battery charge is low. A qualified solar installer / electrician is required to undertake the install and connection. Click on below image for a video demonstration:
2) Backup to Mains Power: For backup power to your home/building when there is a mains power blackout, this generator requires an Automatic Mains Failure (AMF) Panel (see Accessories List above to add to your order). This panel is also referred to as an ‘Automatic Transfer Switch’. This AMF detects when there is a mains power failure, and signals to the generator to automatically start up to restore power to your home/building. Conversely, as soon as the AMF detects mains power returns, it stops the generator. A qualified electrician is required to undertake the install and connection.
ACCESSORY: AUTOMATIC MAINS FAILURE PANEL REQUIRED FOR MAINS POWER BACKUP
Overall, the P9000 is powered by a trusty diesel Lombardini engine, complete with first class components and complete instrumentation. The air-cooled engine features an electric start to drive an AVR alternator for a max output of 8.8kVA and a continuous output of 6800 watts. Add to this the long-run 24L fuel tank and it’s no wonder this generator is the pinnacle of back-up power.
Designed for intensive use, the P9000 is equipped with a control panel that allows you to integrate the accessories outlined above, depending on your specific backup application (solar or mains backup).
To complete the package, a 12-month warranty with a national service network has your maintenance needs covered.
