Power management and generator control



New paralleling product with integrated programmation


The GENSYS COMPACT PRIME is one controller of a complete range for Energy sources and power plant management : Generators, Mains, Photovoltaic, Batteries storage, Tie breakers. This controller is dedicated for generators used in power plant applications requiring synchronizing, active and reactive load sharing and electrical/mechanical protections. It offers flexibility and time saving thanks to its simple wiring, and easy programming.

Hardware & Display
The GENSYS COMPACT PRIME is available in both switchboard panel mounted version with display, or core base mounted version. And compatible with i4Gen touchscreen color display.
The GENSYS COMPACT PRIME is configurable from its front panel display, from i4Gen remote touchscreen, or through the free i4Gen Suite software.
