Cummins Power Generation has launched six new diesel generator sets, which are part of a range that meets improved emission standards. Powered by the reliable QSX15 engine, these generator sets also offer efficient fuel consumption and enhanced control via the new Cummins Power Generation PowerCommand Controls.
The new generator sets deliver optimum performance, reliability and versatility for stationary standby and prime power applications. Four models (C400D5e, C450D5e, C500D5e and C550D5e) are compliant with EU Stage II emission regulations. These models range from 400 to 550kVA at 50 Hz frequency. Two further models (C450D6e and C500D6e) are available with EPA Tier 2 emission regulation compliance. These two models will provide 60 Hz power at 450kW and 500kW respectively. The generators are supplied with PowerCommand 2.2 as standard, and the more advanced PowerCommand 3.3 paralleling control as an additional option. The PowerCommand controls are structured to enable easy upgrading to paralleling controls in the field. In addition, the PowerCommand 3.3 control paired with an optional factory installed motorised circuit breaker is designed to lower total system costs. All models offer a low noise power solution, with the added benefit of a 50 degrees C ambient cooling package, which ensures the generators operate efficiently across a variety of applications in locations, including the Middle East and Africa.
