Generator Modifications You Didn’t Know You Needed
Customer education is essential if you want to modify your CAT generator. Too many consumers purchase a new generator and never realize its full potential. Whether you need more power or want to protect the unit, you should consider these upgrades you probably didn’t know existed.
Battery Charging System
Most generators come with one battery and one battery charger. When the unit is on standby, most stock generators are unable to recharge on their own. While batteries are the most common power source, they often get overlooked by users. But, if a generator has an engine-mounted alternator, the battery can’t charge when the unit is in standby mode.
By installing a complete battery charging system, your generator will be able to recharge even during a standby situation. You’ll never worry about being without power again.
Generators are not cheap. You need to do everything possible to maintain your investment. Adding motorized louvers to your generator is one way you can protect the unit from water and dust.
Louvers cover the intake and exhaust openings. They look like window shutters, and you can open or close them with the push of a button. When the generator is not in use, closing these vents keeps out debris that could damage the system and reduce the lifespan of the system.
