MILWAUKEE — Briggs & Stratton® announces the new Symphony® II power management system for its line of residential standby generators. The technology is designed to provide families with the most affordable and customizable solution to keep a home’s lights and appliances on during a power outage.
“The Symphony II power management system is smart power technology,” said Greg Inwood, general manager, Briggs & Stratton Standby Power division. “It is the lowest-cost solution for families seeking the comfort and peace of mind that backup power delivers.”
The Symphony II system lets homeowners prioritize what in their home they need powered, by pro-actively monitoring and managing the home’s backup power needs It uses computer technology and remote power generator modules that are installed directly to a home’s existing wiring. After a home seamlessly transitions from utility power to backup power, Symphony II automatically manages the distribution of power to the electrical loads — including up to eight high-wattage items like air conditioning units, electric stoves and electric dryers — to provide power where it’s needed while preventing a generator overload.
“Not all of a home’s appliances necessarily require power at the same time, so this power balancing act managed by Symphony II technology gives homeowners access to whole-house power with a smaller, more affordable home generator,” Inwood said.
And because the Symphony II power management system communicates with the electrical circuits over the home’s existing wiring, the cost of generator installation is further reduced.
The Symphony II power management system is packaged with the Briggs & Stratton 100-amp or 200-amp automatic transfer switch, as well as its dual 200-amp/400-amp automatic transfer switch. Symphony II is available with the following Briggs & Stratton products: 10 kW¹, 12 kW¹, 16 kW¹, 20 kW¹, 25 kW¹, 35 kW¹, 48 kW¹ and 60 kW¹ standby generators.
