Generac Model 7037 & 70371 16kW WiFi Home Standby Generator
Now featuring WiFi Mobile Link standard. 16kW with included 200A Automatic Transfer Switch can completely power your home.
The Generac Model 7037 & 70371 are nearly identical generators save for a few differences, the biggest being the included WiFi module for Mobile Link. 2018 brought the standardization of WiFi on the Generac Air Cooled model line.
Some other notable differences were the addition of the Aux Shutdown switches which will produce an Error Code 2800 if the switches are turned off. This will activate the emergency shutdown alarm mode on the unit in the event that emergency personnel need to shut the unit off for any reason. The 15kW and larger home standby generators have 2 Aux Shutdown switches (one located inside the unit and one on the back side) and the 14kW and smaller generators just have one switch (located on the back).
The Generac Air Cooled line now also has moved to the Evolution 2.0 controller (for Honeywell generators it’s now Sync 3.0) which includes updated software for the WiFi accessory and the new shutdown switches which produce the 2800 alarm fault talked about earlier. They’ve also made some small changes to internal sensors and engine components, all of these for the better…
Gone are the days of wondering if your generator is working or not, now that they are monitored 24/7 by the Mobile Link WiFi system. You can choose the level of monitoring you would like to receive through the Mobile Link website and mobile apps.
The Generac 70371 has completely replaced the model 7037 which was introduced in 2016 with some major design changes to the enclosures. These new enclosures and designs have made servicing the generators and installing them much easier for the end user.
The 16kW 7037 has become a best seller, 2nd only to the Generac 7043 22kW model. It remains one of our most popular generators!
