The Generac 6873 SMM Smart Power Management System is designed to optimize the performance of a standby generator. The system can consist of up to 8 individual Smart Management Modules (SMM). Unlike other load management systems that depend on another control device, the SMM modules are actually self-aware and operate autonomously. Frequency is the true measure of generator engine performance and does not need to factor in increased ambient temperatures, elevation changes, or generator fuel type. The modules monitor the frequency of the power being produced by Generac's standby generators and if it falls below a certain threshold, the module will automatically follow a power management algorithm to ensure that the generator is not overloaded.
- Wire-free, which makes them easier to install since no control wires are required
- Work with your transfer switch, monitoring each selected circuit and automatically supplying power where it's needed
- Up to eight Smart Management Modules can be installed with a compatible automatic transfer switch to manage power loads
- Modules can be set to a load priority between 1-8 or even be set in a lockout the only mode for loads that do not need to run in an outage, thus reducing the necessary size of the generator for a more cost-effective solution
