There are many ways to automatically start and stop a generator using Victron equipment:
It is also possible to combine above mentioned methods, by wiring the open contacts in parallel to each other.
To start such a genset, our the open/close contact needs to be converted into a start and stop pulse. Below solution, using standard available timing relays, does exactly that: when the open/close contact closes it generates the start pulse, and when the open/close contact opens again it generates the stop pulse.
Note that this solution should only be used on generators that do have a control panel monitoring and automatically stopping on loss of oil pressure and other sensors. In other words: do not wire this directly to the starter motor and fuel solenoid.
