BRIGGS & STRATTON LAUNCHES NEXT GENERATION POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, AND ENHANCES INFOHUB

Amplify power management and improved InfoHub™ available on new 12kW*, 17kW*, 20kW* generators

MILWAUKEE, Wisc. – Briggs & Stratton Corporation is pleased to introduce Amplify™, the next generation of its Symphony® II power management system, and enhanced InfoHub™ mobile monitoring technology. Both technology systems are available on the recently launched 12kW*, 17kW* and 20kW* generators.

“These technologies allow customers to prioritize and manage standby power with increased capabilities and flexibility. Control is also improved with access to vital data about the generator unit’s performance,” said Josh Cirillo, product manager. “This allows customers to maintain their lifestyles with informed standby power usage, and leverage streamlined diagnostics for improved service and support.”

Briggs & Stratton’s power management system offers customers customizable control over their power needs when relying on a standby generator. Amplify is the newest version of the system, and now allows users to prioritize up to 32 high-wattage appliances — previously eight — based on their specific power needs. Also, homeowners can now adjust priorities through a smartphone app in real-time with this version.

In the past, priorities were chosen and set during installation. “Now, homeowners can ensure their lives are truly never interrupted by powering appliances as needed and reprioritizing throughout the year,” said Cirillo.

The enhanced InfoHub system continues to provide customers with mobile monitoring capabilities, and the new version offers expanded diagnostic services. The system now collects additional data that is sent to both customers and their dealers and can send alerts for scheduled maintenance. It also offers remote start and stop, remote troubleshooting and allows dealers to diagnose — and, in some instances, address — issues from afar.
