Generac Auxiliary Shutdown Kit #10000014761
The 2017 Edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC) includes a new requirement for an external, independent shutdown of prime movers for a Standby Generator’s engine (the prime mover). After an external shutdown, the system must require a manual reset before further generator operation. Generators larger than 15 kilowatts require two switches.
Generac’s Add-On Engine Shutdown Kit includes all the components needed to bring new and existing Generac Standby Generator installations into compliance with NEC Article 445.18(B).
Kit includes two rocker switches, wiring, barrel-splice crimp connectors, and two decals.
Note: Installation may require a firmware update and controller setting changes.
Note: After using the shutdown switch, return switch to “ON” and clear the controller alarm before restart.
Refer to NEC Article 445.18(B) for the full text of the changes.
