Does the price include installation?
No, the price doesn't include installation. Installations are all different and require varying length of cable, time and distances to be travelled. In addition to this installations need to be done by a qualified electrician to issue a valid Certificate of Compliance (COC) for your insurance. We will gladly recommend a qualified local installer, please ask your Sales Consultant for more information.
Do we offer installation?
No, but we do have recommended installers throughout Southern Africa who will be able to assist you with your installation and sizing your generator.
Does the price include delivery?
All prices exclude delivery. Due to the nature of the goods and their size they have to be delivered by a specialised truck and rigging crew. Hence delivery is charged extra based on the distance and complexity of the delivery.
Do I need anything else to connect the generator?
Yes, you'll need either an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) or Manual change over switch in order to link the generator into your property's electrical distribution board. This is required by law to ensure that the generator and mains supply are adequately isolated from one another.
What size ATS do I need?
The recommended size ATS is based on the size of the generator, not the mains incoming supply. The ATS should be capable of taking the whole load from either mains or the generator as both will pass through the ATS switch. Therefore, whilst the recommended switch size will be correct for most installations, it may not be correct for your installation. You should ensure that an electrician performs a load test and checks this information.
Do I need surge protection on the ATS and Generator?
Yes, Surge protection should be installed on the mains incoming line before the ATS and generator. This is to protect the ATS, generator and your home or business. Failure to install adequate surge protection could result in the warranty being voided.
Do I need to anchor the generator to the ground or have a rubber mat?
No, the generator is mounted on anti-vibration mountings so it is not necessary to anchor it. The only reason to anchor the generator would be for theft purposes.
Does the generator need to be installed on a plinth?
Yes, the generator should be installed on a level plinth. Smaller generators (on wheels) can be installed on a paved area.
How much space do I need to install the generator?
You should install the generator with at least 1 meter clear around all sides. This is for optimal air-flow and servicing of the generator.
Can I put the generator in a room or can I build an enclosure around it?
- Air cooled generators should not be installed indoors or in an enclosure. This restricts air-flow and it is a fire hazard.
- Water cooled generators can be installed in a room provided adequate ventilation is provided (In and Out) and the exhaust is taken out the room.
Will my generator rust?
- Our standard canopies are constructed out of powder coated mild steel. Whilst this does offer a level of protection from the elements, rust will still form on the canopy over time. In coastal conditions it is recommended that the generator is regularly washed to avoid salt build-up.
- We have an OPTIONAL Upgrade on our canopies to Aluminium & galvanised steel version. This option is more resistant to rust and better suited for coastal conditions. Please speak to your salesman to find out more about this upgrade option.
Can I load the generator 100% all at once?
No, the generator needs to be loaded in steps. The maximum first step should be 50% and then gradually increased over time. If the generator is loaded above 50% all at once, the RPM will drop along with the frequency and voltage causing the generator to shutdown to protect itself.
What is the optimal load for my generator?
Your generator should ideally be run at 70 - 80% of its prime load rating. New generators must not be run at less than 50% load for prolonged periods.
Tell me about the Warranty?
The warranty is 6 Months or 500 Hours whichever occurs first. It is a limited warranty. Travel to site is not included in the warranty. The goods need to be returned to us or a call out will be charged. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions of sale and the Warranty Card for further information on the warranty. Warranty is held with the agency where you bought the generator. If you have purchased your generator in Johannesburg then the warranty is held in Johannesburg etc.
What is the Price Validity
Pricing is valid whilst stock lasts and is subject to change without prior notice. Pricing on the website is indicative and should always be confirmed by Bundu Power in the form of a written quotation.
Can I make the generator quieter?
Silent generators are designed to minimise sound and optimise airflow through the generator canopy. Any restriction of the airflow in any way will lead to the generator over-heating and it will cause damage to the generator.
We do not recommend using any after-market silencing solutions, this will likely void your warranty and could be a fire hazard.
Generators should be installed outside with at least one meter clear around it to allow for optimal working conditions. DO NOT install inside a room without appropriate ventilation.
The generator will not be able to take the full load instantaneously. The load should be added to the generator gradually. 50% initially and then stepped up over time once engine is up to temperature.
