Comfort, security and convenience are things you can depend on with a Cummins Onan residential standby or portable generator … just in case the power goes out. It is easy to forget how much we depend on power. We use it for everyday essentials like heating, cooling, security, refrigeration, lights, cooking and bathing. With power outages occurring more and more frequently, it is good to be prepared.  A Cummins Onan standby generator can give you peace of mind and the ability to live your busy life, uninterrupted.

Generally, a Cummins Onan residential home standby generator set offers many features not found on portable generator sets, such as a more sophisticated control system, a fully weather–protective enclosure, significantly quieter operation, and more capacity so you can power more conveniences. It goes on automatically when you need it and shuts down automatically once main power is restored. It is connected directly to a fuel system and your home's electrical system so you won’t have to fill a gas tank or manually transfer power from the utility to the home standby unit.

During a power interruption, the Cummins Onan residential emergency standby system will automatically deliver the power to keep your home running smoothly. They are no more conspicuous than a central air conditioning unit and are typically linked directly to your permanent fuel supply. You can depend on clean, quiet power whether your needs call for a permanently-installed standby system or a portable solution.


Cummins Onan - transfer

Automatic transfer switches, capable of automatic operation without operator intervention, perform the basic function of transferring the load to the available power source. Should the utility fail, the transfer switch automatically switches the electrical load from the utility to the generator. The utility (normal power source) is backed up by a generator (emergency power source).


Cummins Onan - diesel

Their revolutionary design makes these generator sets up to 15 dBquieter than other diesel-powered generators, and quieter than most gasoline sets. The Quiet Diesel Series models are the heavy-duty choice when low noise and low vibration are required.


Cummins Onan - gasoline

The advanced digital control provides extensive diagnostic capabilities by constantly monitoring the generator set's operation and alerting the user to potential problems. These include exceptionally low noise and vibration, easy installation, diagnostic capability and digital regulation which maintains voltage stability as loads change.
