What is a Commercial Generator?

Oncue® Generator Management System

Ever wonder what a commercial generator is? An electric generator is an apparatus that transfers mechanical energy into electrical energy. A commercial generator is designed to power your business, including critical wired systems like A/C, heat, computers, security systems, refrigerators, freezers, registers, and so much more.  A day without power can seriously affect your bottom line and wreck your inventory. Keep your revenue stream and brand reputation intact with a KOHLER® commercial generator.

How Does a Commercial Generator Work

Commercial generators work to provide electricity when an unforeseen power outage occurs. A commercial generator automatically restores power to your business within a matter of seconds and is typically installed outside your company.

Before an interruption in power ensues, the automatic transfer switch (ATS) monitors the electricity from the utility and works 24/7 to safeguard your business. The moment your power drops below an acceptable level, the ATS immediately signals the generator to start within 10 seconds or less. Also, because your standby generator will start automatically, you can forget about manual starting and pesky extension cords.

Power Indicator

A power indicator is a device that can be found in your KOHLER® automatic transfer switch. It helps you observe exactly where your power is originating from – utility or generator.

Weekly Self-Test

KOHLER® commercial generators run an automatic weekly self-diagnosing test for about 20 minutes to make sure your generator is ready when you need it.

OnCue® System

KOHLER OnCue® generator management system helps you take charge of your generator. Kohler OnCue allows you to gain real-time insight on your generator system remotely from your computer, phone, or tablet.

Every KOHLER® generator is quality and performance tested throughout the production life cycle. Each KOHLER® commercial generator includes PowerBoost technology, which helps to handle large starting loads without dropping power to other equipment.

Once the power is restored, the ATS automatically transfers your business to utility power, and your generator will automatically power off. Not only will a commercial generator put a stop to any costly disruptions in daily business activities, but it will enhance your overall peace of mind.
