I recently purchased a 22kW system from you. Overall, the system has more than enough amps and wattage to satisfy my needs. My only concern was with situations where the HVAC systems may have been in a cooling operations prior to the generator kicking in. Will two systems trying to kick in at the same time trip the generator or for peace of mind would you need the smart management module? Would you buy the module for the air handlers or for the condensers?

Answer
The transfer switch that usually comes with the 22kW unit will have the ability to manage up to 4 A/C units. You would have to run wires from the outside condensers to the transfer switch for each unit. Once connected it would prevent the A/C units from starting at the same time. If you do not want to run wires then you can add an Smart Management (SMM Module) to each A/C unit's circuit at the panel.

I recommend checking with an electrician to see what the best way is to make the connections. If you have any other questions about this or other products from our website, don't hesitate to give us a call. We're here to help.

Is the SMM 6873 a stand alone item? Will it work using a generator from a different manufacturer? I have a customer that has a 17 KW portable generator that wants to run the whole house. The total load on the house is well over 17 KW so I will need to install several of these load shedding relays. Thanks Don

Answer
The SMM can only be used with Generac generators.

The SMM Module is wireless meaning there is no wires needed to go back to the transfer switch. The module uses the neutral wire in the main house to transfer the signal.

If you have any additional questions please let us know.
