Setting up Auto-Start on an Aurora Generator with a DynaGen Controller is simple. Here is how it works. With the generator set to "auto", it will remain on standby until PIN 7 on the din terminal block is connected to ground PIN 9.

There is no power needed here. Just a dry contact from a relay on your ATS or remote that closes a connection to start and opens it to stop. That's a two-wire start.

For advanced installations, if auto-start should happen when a "Float, Open, Battery or Ground connection is made instead, it can be configured in the DynaGen Controller Menu.

Ordering Parts for Perkins Engines

Understanding your engine plate, to make sure you receive the correct parts for your engine.

Over the years Perkins has produced hundreds of different engines – and each has a number of different variants. So how do you know the exact specification of your engine?

All the information you need about your engine is included on your engine plate – although you do need to know how to read the information recorded on it.

Engines vary according to the application and power requirements of the machine, and the components required may be different between engine variants. For example, different fan heights and pulleys mean differences in fan belts or the fitting of a turbocharger may mean different oil system requirements. Knowing the engine and serial number will enable you to decide on the exact parts you require when you need to service or repair your engine.

Engine serial numbers are found on a metal plate commonly fixed to the engine block, typically located on the left-hand side of your engine.

New Aurora GeneratorHere at Aurora Generators, we are always listening to our customers and looking for ways to improve our products. We've had great success with our built tough, grey, small compact diesel generators for many years. Designed for both residential and commercial markets. It was, for many customers, much more than they needed. As an emergency standby generator, it's main purpose is to sit outside, waiting for the next power failure. The doors, windows and outside features looked great, but with feed-back from customers like you, those features are not required nor used by most people.

So, in keeping with our tradition of always improving, we've done just that! We make installing an Aurora Generator easier than ever with improved access to the generator itself. The sides use a lockable latch mechanism and are completely removable. The generator frame has also been redesigned, but will still accommodate an internal fuel tank. Our new mufflers are quieter than before. We have improved airflow to reduce interior temperatures. The lighter color helps keep it cooler inside and is more ecstatically appealing.

We are sure you will love these new improvements. You can expect to see our mobile, tow-able, off-grid and commercial generators to be updated next. Stay tuned!
