The Auto Power Model R self-starting generator is designed for use in remote areas where power is required only on an intermittent basis for pumping water, ventilation, lighting, etc. The Generator Model R is portable, compact, easy to hook up, reliable and a very affordable alternative to having a commercial power supply installed in many remote areas. The Model R Auto Power starts and runs only when there is a demand for electrical power. To accomplish this, the Model R needs only to be connected to a signal switch. The signal switch, a thermostat, a motion detector, or any type of ON / OFF control. When the signal switch goes to the ON position, the Auto Power automatically starts providing 120V – 240V power. When the power demand is filled, the switch goes to the OFF position, automatically shutting the generator off, to restart the next time there is a demand for power whether it is two minutes or two months from then.
All of the Auto Power Model R generators are designed, built and assembled at our facility using only quality and proven components. By using this approach, we are able to do these things:
1. Produce one-of-a-kind units in a relatively short period of time, at a reasonable cost
2. Be certain that all components are of acceptable quality and also readily available.
3. Have exact fit replacement parts in stock (if the need should ever arise) for same day shipping.
4. Technical and trouble shooting service available for the complete Auto Power system. You can talk with the people who made the units.
The Auto Power Model R Honda powered generator is a popular choice for remote well site use other needs for control power, weighing less than 225 lb. These units are also ideal for supplying power to remote cabins.
BUILT IN FEATURES AND WHAT THEY DO
1. REPEAT CRANK-ABILITY
Enables the engine to crank 2 additional times ,in the event it failed to start
on the initial crank cycle.
2. OVER LOAD OR SHORT CIRCUIT PROTECTION
Circuit breaker equipped.
3. OVER CRANK PROTECTION
Prevents the AUTO POWER from cranking more than 3 cycles.
4. DELAYED ENGAGEMENT OF GENERATOR
Allows the engine to achieve full lubrication and stabilize (rpm’s) before
the load of the generator is applied.
5. DELAY START-UP
There is approximately a 10 second delay of the start cycle; this prevents
false starts. (bouncing floats etc.)
6. LOW OIL SHUT DOWN
Shuts engine off if oil becomes low

TIMER CONTROLLED SYSTEM
This system is used to control the AUTO POWER for a repeat on and off cycle operation. The sequence of operation is as follows.
1 The controller is turned on, engine starts and the on cycle time begins.
2 When the on cycle time has elapsed the engine will shut off
3 At this point the off time starts.
4 When the off time has been met a new cycle automatically begins.
Timers are set individually for the on and off times. Timer settings range from
15 seconds to 24 hours!!
Price – $250.00
PIPELINE CONTROL SYSTEM
This system consists of only a programmable timer that is integrated into the AUTO POWER controls and a pressure switch, making it a simple, reliable,
and cost effective method to maintain water levels in a tank or tanks that are a distance from the well head. The system operates on the principle that when the floats in the tanks (customer supplied) are all closed, the pressure will rise, activating the pressure switch which signals the generator to shut off. For the system to function, the pressure needs only to spike for a moment. This enables the controller to operate with out the need of a pressure tank . Conventional floats are adequate and small leaks do not effect it’s performance.
Price – $300.00
EXPLANATION OF A CYCLE FOR THE PIPELINE SYSTEM
The AUTO POWER starts and runs until the tanks are filled. At this time pressure
builds closing the pressure switch ,shutting the engine off and activating the timer.The timer is programmed (by user) to obtain the desired OFF time.Upon compilation of the off time the generator starts and begins another cycle.
The RUN time is not controlled by the timer but by the pressure switch.
The timer has a wide choice of settings from 0.1 seconds to 1024 hours!
The 2 wires on the float are connected to the lugs on the control box and the rest is simple- water low ( float down ) engine starts – tank filled ( float up ) generator shuts off.
Price – $75.00
