Load Management

Cummins air-cooled generators up 20 kW are capable of managing up to four loads, such as your heater, air conditioner or hot water heater using the appliance’s low voltage thermostat signal. With Cummins intelligent load management, your generator is able to turn that equipment on and off based on household demand to prevent the generator from overloading and shutting down.

Cummins intelligent load management is:

  • Integrated into each genset, so no additional hardware is required
  • Smart, so it learns load requirements and turns on loads only when the  generator has sufficient capacity
  • Faster, due to amperage based response and not frequency

This technology can enable full house protection by allowing you to invest in a smaller generator. The optional load management kit can be used in conjunction with the intelligent load management system or as a standalone kit. The kit includes two relays for controlling higher voltage appliances, such as your electric oven, dryer or even an entire room in your home. The use of normally closed relays saves power. In addition, the kit can be surface or flush mounted for the best appearance. Your local Cummins dealer can determine the correct system for your needs.
