Evolution™ Controller

The next generation of intuitive controllers featuring a multilingual, two-line LCD text display with color-coded, backlit buttons.

Certified for 18" Installation to the Home

Third-party certified to NFPA standards to be installed as close as 18” from the home’s exterior wall, provided it is located away from doors, windows, and fresh-air intakes, and unless otherwise directed by local codes.

Easy Installation

With an intelligent pre-wired transfer switch, re-engineered connection points, and composite mounting pad that eliminates the need for a poured concrete base (unless specified by local codes), the Guardian Series 8 kW generator is easy to install.

Tool-less Fuel Conversion

Switch between natural gas and LP fuel in the field in a few seconds, without the need for any tools.

Rated for Operation in Areas with Low Natural Gas Pressure

In areas with low natural gas pressure, the Guardian Series generator can operate on natural gas pressures of only 3.5” of water column—significantly lower than published numbers for competitive standby generator systems.

All-Weather Aluminum Enclosure

The aluminum enclosure is offered for the 17kW making it ideal for coastal, salt-air climates. It’s also able to withstand 150 mph winds.

Quiet-Test™ Mode

Thanks to Quiet-Test, your Guardian Series home standby generator runs its weekly self-test at a lower RPM. It’s quieter than other brands, and consumes less fuel.
