Designed for standby, prime, and load management applications, this mid-range gen-set meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim emissions standards


Designed for standby, prime, and load management applications, this mid-range gen-set meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim emissions standards. Powered by the company’s Cat C15 engine, ratings for the 60-Hz package are 500kW (standby) and 455kW (prime). According to the company, the product features an advanced emissions control on the engine that lowers combustion temperature, achieving decreased NOx output. Optional weather protective and sound-attenuated enclosures are also available.

Portable generators

The Industrial Series of generators consists of the EB4000 (replacing the existing EB3800), EB5000, EB6500, and EB3000C — a model that incorporates the company’s CycloConverter technology. According to the company, the CycloConverter model offers power equal in quality to automatic voltage regulator (AVR) generators but is lighter in weight because traditional parts have been replaced with a central processing unit (CPU), eliminating the need for an alternator. In addition, each model incorporates the company’s redesigned iGX engines. Power output has been increased in each model.
