Has anyone tried and successfully used the AGS function to shut down a gen set when its done?
I have not used it like above but can see no reason not to drive a relay with an aux that kills gen, maybe a bit fiddly with the programing and use,
I would start with unreachable AGS start parameters so it never hits auto start, Normal charge voltage and time (if it trys to auto and fails, you will get error, AGS error is triggered by the system sending out the start signal and waiting the programed time "looking for" AC in and not getting it, no biggy if you do not rely on it for every day charging)
Normal day to day you would have the aux turned permanently on via mate so gen would run as it does now (gen run to manual,on) when you do not want to go to shed you could either flick across to "auto on" and the system would carry on running an AGS cycle then stop gen or manual off to stop it then,
To save you doing too much work to start you may want to experiment
On the later inverters there is a small yellow LED by the AUX connector that shows when it is on (and you can hear small internal relay click) treat that as a pseudo gen "for test purposes" before you get the tools out
