Portable Generator Auto Start?

midijeepmidijeep Registered Users Posts: 101 ✭✭
I have been looking for a portable generator (~3500- 5500 watts) to tie into my grid-tied backup system.  I have a SMA Sunny Island 6048.  It has the capability to use one of its relays to turn on\off a generator when needed.
I am having trouble finding a portable generator with auto start.  Is there a kit I can use with a portable generator that has electric start that would work with the SMA SI 6048?

    We had one user here that like the Honda em4000sx:

    Pop this search string into Google for some discussions on the forum:
    The Honda sx has a computer controlled engine management module and did not need manual choke.
