UTS10BI auto start/stop "generator exercise test" question?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 4/16/2012


In the Installation Guide for the UTS10BI (Updated: 22-Mar-2012), at the bottom of page 4 it says
"Generator Exercise (Test), Every two weeks".

1) How do you know what day & time that's going to happen?

2) How long does the test of the generator run for? (i.e. how long will the generator run during the test?)

I don't know if its just not enabled or there and doesn't work (as I don't have one to check right this second frown).

hate to dig up an old thread but....

Has anyone figured out if this works or not?  does the UTS exercise your generator every two weeks?  If so, for how long?

According to my post here (Re: UTS10BI, Honda EM5000SX and Auto Throttle System, auto-start was never really truly supported (which I guess it needs to be removed from the user's guide!). Thus, I don't know since it was never tested really how it is supposed to work and all the details.

Angela -

thanks for the update.  I'm guessing by your reply that "Generator Exercise (Test), Every two weeks" isn't enabled in the firmware of the UTS.
