I am having a 22KW (7043) unit installed by an authorized Generac dealer soon. The generator just arrived at my dealer's shop direct from Generac, so it probably has been manufactured within the last few weeks. Will this generator have the 2 emergency stop switches factory installed, or will the dealer have to install them ??? Are they required according to the NEC, or are they optional ??? I am located in New York if it makes any difference.

I just installed a 16kw this week and no shutdown switches installed. We aren't on the 17 code yet, so I didn't install any. Mass is so we install them there. It depends upon what code cycle you are on. If you aren't on the 2017, you don't have to install them.

What governing body determines which code cycle ???? Federal, State, City, County, Town, Village, etc., etc., etc. ???

I would think that all of those are involved but what matters is your local area AHJ.

Ask your inspector. The NFPA has an adoption map and it looked like the state of NY was on the 2014. I looked at your town website briefly, but didn't see any references. Just place a call and ask.

No it is not required in the State of New York, yet. New York is operating under the 2014 NEC, the shut down is a 2017 NEC requirement.

If you have any present or future concerns, then purchase the kit to field install from Generac. It's about $25 and takes 15 minutes or less to install.

If you add the emergency shutdown kit, does the generator need re-programming and/or updating?

The firmware version must be v1.18 or higher.
