Overview

Producing reliable power from 320 ekW to 500 ekW at 60Hz, our C15 ACERT® diesel generator sets are built for standby and prime applications and built to your power standards. Each are engineered to ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and designed to accept 100 percent rated load in one step. Our C15 generator sets range from low fuel consumption systems to EPA Tier 4 Interim certification. We plan for the unpredictable, which is why all models are made to meet seismic certification. Our integrated control system, including Cat® UPS, ATS and switchgear, keeps your power constant and keeps you connected to your fleet with on-site and remote monitoring capabilities. Access management and diagnostics tools with our easy to use EMCP 4 control panels, which provide expandable functionality from basic generator set monitoring, control, and protection to full multi gen paralleling. We offer accessories and bolt-on system expansion attachments to help you meet specific power needs. Flexible packaging options work with your spatial restrictions and climate. Even select from UL 2200 and CSA certified packages for added safety.
