The Hyundai DHY6000SE2 is a 5.5kW single phase backup diesel generator designed to be used as standby power for your home or small office when there is a powercut or grid failure. It can be coupled with an automatic transfer switch (ATS) unit in order to provide automatic startup to get your home's power, lighting and heating back on in minutes, or a more simpler and cheaper manual changeover switch.

The new Hyundai DHY6000SE2 has a large side door on each side to allow easy access for routine checks and maintenance. With it's 25 litre diesel tank it will run for over 24 hours on a tank full of diesel (typical fuel consumption is 1 litre per hour). This generator will run on standard 'white' diesel or 'derv' which is available from any filling station, or more importantly, it will run on red diesel, which costs less than half the price of white diesel. Red diesel is normally available from your local heating oil supplier.

This diesel generator is ideally suited to be kept in the garage and wheeled to the garage door when required. (NB a qualified installer should be used to connect your generator if using a changeover switch). The DHY6000SE2 is a silenced generator, sometimes referred to as a silent generator.

The quality of the electricity produced is a high standard thanks to the Hyundai AVR alternator. The AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) controls the voltage produced by the alternator and controls it to 230v plus or minus max 2%.

The engine is the same reliable 4-stroke Hyundai OHV air-cooled, 10hp direct injection Hyundai electric start diesel engine. It features low oil pressure shutdown, electric key start, 12v battery charging to keep its battery charged when running. All this mounted on anti vibration mounts to further reduce noise and vibration.

The easy-to-use control panel which is situated on the end of the generator includes:

  • Electric Key start
  • 2 x 230v Sockets (16A and 32A)
  • 12v 8.3A DC Ouput
  • Circuit Breaker for overload protection
  • Voltmeter and hourmeter
  • Earthing point
  • Oil alert light for low oil pressure
  • ATS 3-wire communication port

The DHY6000SE2 control panel is wired to allow the use of an ATS system,  however it requires an ATS control module to be plugged into the control panel of the machine to work automatically and communicate with an ATS panel. Adding this feature is easily done so, please call us on 01437 700 123 to discuss this feature and what else you will need to couple the generator to an ATS switch, or the lower cost manual 100amp changeover switch. This machine will also work with a remote start system, allowing you to start and stop the generator remotely with a key fob, up to 20m away
