This Delco Light consists of a gasoline engine, a dy­
namo and switch board combined in one unit, weighing but 325
pounds, exclusive of the storage batteries, which are furnished as
a part of the outfit.
It is a Low Voltage System, ( 32 volts ). as this
saves battery expense, at the same time it is sufficient voltage to
operate light machinery, in addition to furnishing light for the
house, barns and other buildings.
It also enables the use of Standard Lighting Fix­
tures without the slightest danger in handling.
The Gasoline Engine is of the air cooled type, with
no danger of freezing, and being Self-starting, requires only the
closing of a switch which starts the engine and automatically stops
when the batteries are charged.
The Batteries are of the sealed glass jar type and
will not freeze at 20 degrees below zero.
Any number of Lights may be installed up to 50,
as the average farm uses only a few at a time.
The Storage Battery alone will carry 15 twenty-
watt lights for 8 hours, and when the engine is running, will carry
32 twenty-watt lights continuously.
By using the same precaution as on a meter system
the engine need only be run at intervals of perhaps twice a week
to keep the batteries fully charged.
As limited space prevents us giving a full description
of this wonderful system. You Owe It To Yourself to come in
and see it -operate - on exhibition at
