          Features

          • Generac designs and manufactures the 48kW Protector Series standby generator in Wisconsin. They staff their Customer Care center located near their Milwaukee, Wisconsin headquarters 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Trained and knowledgeable staff answer questions any time of the day or night.
          • Their purpose built 4.5L Generac 4-Cylinder was designed and built in their USA facilities located in Wisconsin. Featuring first-in-class dual-valve, ultra-low-pressure fuel delivery and intelligent engine controls for more than one hundred performance functions, the Generac RG04845ANAX delivers peak efficiency through all temperature ranges and elevations.
          • True Power Technology ensures utility-grade power. Safe for sensitive electronics—runs appliances and lights—powers heavy duty motors on air conditioners and well pumps. All at the same time. Isochronous Frequency regulation within 0.25%, automatic digital voltage regulation to 1%, and less than 5% total harmonic distortion.
          • The Evolution Controller with LCD display is smart, user-friendly, and viewable without opening the generator cabinet. Monitor generator performance, review status logs, and track maintenance to keep your Generac 48 kW Generator in top condition and ready for the next power outage.
          • Generac’s proprietary Quiet-Test self-test mode runs the generator at a lower speed during a five or twelve-minute self-test while it performs diagnostics and exercises the generator. Program regular exercise at weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly intervals to ensure the generator is always ready to protect your home or business from an outage.
          • Wireless Mobile-Link comes standard on the Generac 48kW. Access the generator controller from anywhere in the world on any mobile device, laptop, or desktop computer. The optional Mobile-Link 4G LTE (sold separately) utilizes the cellular network for reliable communications during outages and natural disasters.
          • Inside, a durable protective coating prevents rust on the 48 kW Generac frame. Outside, the Rhino-Coat Powder-coated finish on the aluminum cabinet forms a corrosion resistant barrier under the harshest environmental conditions.
          • The Generac 48kW Protector Series Standby Generator comes with a standard 5-year limited consumer warranty. Norwall offers extended warranty options on the Generac 48 kW Generator.
