I have a new Generac 7 kW generatort hat came with the panel designed for power failure back up. I am not using the switch gear and am trying to hook it up to a off-grid solar system to charge the batteries when there is not enough sun. It has the Evolution controller, I have found all the information to hook up the nexus controllers to a 2-wire start but am unable to find anything on the Evolution controller, the generator serial # is 8298*** and the model # is 0062370. I am wanting to start it with my Xantrex AGS. Any information would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

From main display menu, punch this in with the keypad:

UP UP ESC DN UP ESC UP ENTER

DO NOT, change any settings that you see here except for what I am walking you through below. Severe damage can occur to your house electronics if modifications are done.


Now you are in edit mode.

Arrow over to SUB MENUS and press enter.

Arrow down twice to 2 WIRE START SELECT (I believe it is twice, maybe three times)

press ENTER. press up to change NO to a Y and press enter.

Press ESC until you are back to the main menu.

You are now in 2 wire start mode.
