Keep your living space cool and your batteries charged without supervision and without worry. The ME-AGS monitors inside room temperature and low-battery conditions to start or stop your generator at the perfect moment, all of which can be controlled by connecting to the Magnum ME-RC remote control. This episode in the Magnum video series is designed to help guide you through the screens of the ME-RC revision 2.8 in order to setup your Automatic Generator Start module. Other revisions may show slightly different screens, but this video should get you through the basics of programming. Please note that this video is not meant to go over every possible scenario, but rather give you an idea of how to program your system for your particular setup. Please refer to your owner’s manual for more in-depth information.
The AGS menu on the ME-RC allows you to set specific parameters for starting and stopping your generator, including: generator run duration (03 Run Time Hour), temperature (04 Start Temp F), and battery voltage (05 Start Volts). Additionally, you can set the current time and then use the quiet time feature (07 Quiet Time) to reserve a part of the day that you don’t want the generator to run. For example, you can use the quiet time feature to prevent your generator from running in the middle of the night when everyone is trying to sleep. Once you’ve programmed the AGS settings, the 01 AGS Control menu allows you to either Enable or Enable with Quiet Time.
There's nothing better than returning to a cool, comfortable home with charged batteries after a day away. The ME-RC together with the ME-AGS can make that happen.
