Briggs & Stratton expands backup power options

With the heavy power requirements of commercial applications in mind, Briggs & Stratton has expanded its backup power solutions for its dealer network, which now total more than 60.

"Just as no two businesses are exactly the same, no two customers in the light commercial market need exactly the same backup power option," said marketing manager Amanda Grandy. "The industry needs more flexible and dependable solutions for commercial business owners. This large product expansion shows our commitment to offering customers a reliable, tailored solution that helps keep their business up and running in the event of a power outage – all from a manufacturer they know and trust."

The company is now offering six different voltage levels (120/240, 120/208, 139/240, 227/480, 277/480, 347/600), two configuration setups (WYE or Delta) and two controller types (ComAp InteliNanoNT or ComAp InteliLiteNT). These can all be used in conjunction with the 35-kW, 48-kW and 60-kW standy generator units.

Other options include weather-resistant steel enclosure and a a durable GM Vortec 1800 RPM engine, which is quieter and more fuel-efficient than other high-RPM engine options.
