ACERT Technology

High Pressure Common Rail provide precise fuel metering and consumptions as well as limited visible smoke, ECM provides excellent speed control, noise reduction, 100% load acceptance and improved engine monitoring

Common-Rail Fuel System

Variable multi-shot injection combines with a high compression ratio for optimized fuel efficiency and very low smoke operation, Injection characteristics optimized for every engine operating point, NOx and soot emissions reduced

Noise Reduction

New block for low noise and vibrations, Insulated timing case cover, Isolated oil pan (also provides ease of maintenance), Improved pump and gear train system, Stiffer crankshaft, Multiple fuel injection strategy, 4 valve cross flow head, Double curvature on thick walled crankcase, Piston optimized for high speed operation

Hydraulic Tappets

Hydraulic tappet adjustment removes the need for manual tappet adjustment, that on the 1006 (C6.6) needed to happen every 500 hours. This system is operated by oil pressure, and this saves the customers a considerable amount of cost from an Operating perspective.

Improved Smoke Levels

Improved smoke levels from C4.4 mechanical engine

Serpentine belts to achieve longer service intervals

These belts are more efficient, as they provide more drive surface. Less heating is created during running, and the belt will also last longer. The poly V belt cannot twist over like a single V belt, and any wear of the poly V belt becomes apparent a long time before failure.

Integrated Base Frame

Suitable for wide range of auxiliary accessories

Gear Driven water pumps

Lower servicing costs, reduced down time

Water-cooled turbo

Suitable for “gas tight” applications

Tailored Technology

Meets customer requirements in: voltage, cooling, twin pocket fly wheel housing, and factory options for starting

Caterpillar package

Fully packaged generator set

Advanced fuel and combustion system with 4 valves per cylinder

Lube System

Oil system holds 11L (2.8 gal), 500-hour oil change interval, Max continuous operation angle is 25⁰ (any direction), Max intermittent operation angle 30⁰ (any direction), Simplex and Duplex oil filters options available

Design Features

Control panel standard on LHS with single leg box, Control panel location interchangeable between 3 positions available as option
