Cummins Power Generation Tier 4 generator sets

Cummins Power Generation is first–to–market with new 10, 15, 20, and 25 kW Tier 4 generator sets (shown without available enclosure).

– A new line of generator sets from Cummins Power Generation Inc. is the first on the market to meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) stringent Tier 4 emissions regulations. The generator sets are rated at 10 kW, 15 kW, 20 kW and 25 kW. These low–emissions generator sets are available with a weather–protective and/or sound–attenuated enclosure made of either steel or aluminum, making them ideal for locations with strict emissions and noise control regulations such as construction sites.

“For contractors working at construction sites without utility power, this new line of low–emissions generator sets will provide power for tools, lighting, fans and air conditioning for temporary offices,” says Brian Mann, product manager for low–range commercial diesel generator sets, Cummins Power Generation. “With both low emissions and available sound–attenuated enclosures, these generator sets will be both clean and quiet.”

The new generator sets feature 4–cycle, naturally aspirated, in–line diesel engines with exceptionally low exhaust emissions. The design of the cooling system allows an enclosed generator set to run at full standby load in up to 131 degrees F (55 degrees C) ambient air temperature. This provides a factory solution for customers who need generator sets to operate in high–temperature environments. In addition to the EPA Tier 4 certification, the generator sets are also UL2200–listed, CSA–certified and meets NFPA 110 for Level–1 standby power systems.

The standard control system for the generator sets is the new PowerCommand® 1.1 electronic control which provides total system integration including automatic remote start/stop. The control system also provides precise frequency and voltage regulation, alarm and status message display, output metering and automatic shutoff at fault detection.
