Enhanced Auto Mains Failure genset controller with integrated programming

AMF Compact

The AMF COMPACT is a versatile controller that forms part of a comprehensive range designed for efficient management of energy sources and power plants. Whether it’s generators, mains power, photovoltaic systems, batteries storage, or tie breakers, this controller caters to a diverse array of applications. Specifically tailored for standby diesel or gas generators, it seamlessly handles the automatic transfer switch in the event of mains failure while providing robust monitoring, control, and protection of the engine, alternator, and power bus bars. With its simplified wiring, all-inclusive features (no additional options required), and user-friendly programming, the AMF COMPACT ensures flexibility and time-saving convenience.
Hardware & Display
The AMF COMPACT is offered in two convenient configurations: a switchboard panel-mounted version with a display, and a core base-mounted version. Additionally, the AMF COMPACT is fully compatible with the i4Gen touchscreen color display range, providing seamless integration and enhanced functionality for users.
The AMF COMPACT range offers multiple configuration options to suit your preferences and convenience. Whether you prefer using the front panel display, the i4Gen remote touchscreen, or our user-friendly i4Gen Suite software, you have the flexibility to configure the AMF COMPACT according to your specific needs.
