About This Product

The Champion Power Equipment 100179 12.5-kW Home Standby Generator with an ATS100 Outdoor-Rated Automatic Transfer Switch is The Simple Solution to a power outage. It starts automatically when the power goes out and returns to standby when power is restored. You'll have the starting power you need during an emergency since the onboard battery charger maintains the charge at all times, plus, since the generator is connected to your propane or natural gas system, it never needs refueling. This unit also performs weekly self-diagnostic tests. The ATS100 automatic transfer switch operates a 100 Amp, 16 circuit load (12 space sub panel allows up to 4 tandem breakers). It is ideal for homeowners who want to power emergency essentials during a power outage as opposed to the whole house. It is housed in a NEMA 3R rated enclosure for outdoor use. Our innovative gull-wing design provides easy access to the engine and control panel and allows a full view of the onboard control system. This 12.5-kW-rated unit produces 52.1 Amp at 240-Volt on propane and 45.8 Amps at 240-Volt on natural gas. The alternator produces less than 5% total harmonic distortion (THD) to ensure safe use with even the most sensitive electronics. This generator is available for all 50 states, and the ATS100 is UL and cUL listed in the US and Canada. Champion Support and our nationwide network of service centers will back your purchase up with a 10-year limited warranty and free lifetime technical support.

                Was looking at another manufacturer but they did not include a base or automatic transfer switch. This model was exactly what I needed.

                  Excellent value, great craftsmanship, easy installation.
                  We have contemplated installing a HSB for years now. When I saw the Champion HSB generator with 100A ATS for the price, I was impressed. I read all of the reviews and watched a few videos as well. That was enough to convince me that I was ready to purchase this product and I'm glad I did. Once received, I was not disappointed. It was shipped quickly and I received it in under a week. The installation went seamlessly. The ATS is of good quality, rated for outdoor installation. The unit does not require a concrete pad be poured though I decided to pour one to sit it on. The 12.5kW generator is sufficient to run everything on my 100A internal house panel so it was ideal for the job. I had a 250 gallon LPG installed and short line run to the generator. I did have to purchase and install the (2) 12V batteries, which was easy to do. I'm a licensed Electrical PE with electrical experience so I was able to perform the main electrical installation and ATS and I hired a licensed LP gas company to complete the propane gas installation and connection to the HSB GenSet. The installation manual was easy to follow, and I had no issues with the electrical installation whatsoever. Changing the orifices to convert the unit from Natual Gas to LPG was simple. I made sure to fill the unit with oil as well since it is shipped without oil. Once the LP was connected, the unit was put in manual mode and it fired right up with no issues after it ran through its internal error checking. The exercise test runs smoothly for weekly test runs, it starts up and runs 15 minutes without load once a week and shuts down. I even killed the utility power feed to the ATS to test the automatic restoration function of the HSB and within 35 seconds of losing power, the unit fired up and within 7 seconds the ATS switched from Utility to Genset. So in less than 45 seconds and the whole home panel power was restored. I was impressed. After power was restored to the ATS, the unit runs a test to assess the utility feed and the ATS switches back to Utility feed in under a minute. The genset runs a few more minutes before shutting down automatically. The Gull-wing design of the HSB is a very practical and ingenious design. It makes it easy to access the GenSet and internal control panel. The doors can also be locked to prevent intrusion. The unit is no louder than my Heat Pump unit beside the house when doors are closed and it's running. You can only hear a slight hum from inside the house when in the rooms that are adjacent to the wall the unit is by. Throughout the rest of the home, you are unable to hear the unit running. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a quality HSB generator to serve the bulk of your power needs during a power outage. The only thing that will not be powered is my HVAC, Range, and Dryer circuits which are not fed by my internal house panel. That's okay because we can grill out during an outage so we won't need the oven. We can open windows and use ceiling fans as well so we can survive without the HVAC. Excellent value for the money spent.

                      I researched the market and had several quotes done before I chose to go with Rocky Burgess' Electric Consultants to install a Champion 12.5kw standby generator. Rocky and his team did an outstanding job. I have lost power a few times already this summer and the generator has worked as designed, flawlessly. I couldn't be more pleased both with the generator and the team that at Electric Consultants.

                        This generator is top of the line. The quality and workmanship is second to none. From our installer to the neighbors I had look at it - they all are very impressed with the product. I give it very high ratings !

                          Works well, would purchase again
                          Unit was reasonably priced and works well. Installation and startup was a challenge with our local gas company. If considering a stand alone generator I would recommend getting a written estimate and scope of work from your chosen gas supplier before purchasing from a retail outlet. Best to get a turn key package from a manufacturers recommended supplier. All in all after a year of use we are very satisfied with unit and with being outside the city power is off quite often so it is very helpful having a fully automatic emergency power supply.
