Altitude Kit Installation - iGen4500, iGen4500DF

By Jackie Green on Fri Nov 06, 20

HIGH ALTITUDE REPLACEMENT KIT Engine performance decreases as altitude increases. Proper operation can be ensured by installing an altitude kit when required. See the table below to determine when an altitude kit is required. Operating this generator without the proper altitude kit installed may increase the engine’s emissions and decrease fuel economy and performance.

iPro2500 Paralleling (for two iPro2500 generators)

By Jackie Green on Thu Nov 05, 20

HOW TO PARALLEL A IPRO2500 You must use the WHPC to properly parallel two Westinghouse inverters. If you are paralleling with an iGen inverter that is floating neutral then you need to change the iPro2500 to floating neutral. If you are paralleling two iPro2500s, both must be changed to floating neutral to properly function. See separate service bulletin on how to float GFCI outlet on iPro2500. NOTE: ONCE YOU FLOAT THE GFCI THE IPRO2500 IS NO LONGER OHSA OR CSA COMPLIANT. If you are paralleling two iPro2500s you will first need to float the neutral on both inverters. If you...

Remote Start Key Fob Pairing

By Jackie Green on Thu Nov 05, 20

PROGRAMMING THE GENERATOR FOR REMOTE START The generator can be started remotely from up to a maximum of 109 yards (100 M) away using the remote start key fob with new, fully charged batteries in the key fob. As the batteries’ state of charge in the key fob reduces, the distance to start the generator will also reduce. Before the generator can be started, an initial start-up procedure must be performed so the generator and the key fob recognize each other. If the key fob is replaced, you will need to go through this procedure with the new fob. With...
