Wolf products can run on generators that supply enough wattage to power the product.

  • If the generator is connected to multiple products, make sure the generator is properly sized.
  • If the generator is not properly sized, damage to the product can occur.
  • For units that run on 120 volts, the power supply must provide a minimum of 104 volts at all times.
  • For units that run on 240 volts, the power supply must provide a minimum of 208 volts at all times.
