Generator set start module provides up to 1725 cold cranking amps @ 24 VDC to assist and backup the generator set starting batteries for improved system reliability. Very often the cause for standby generator sets failing to start is due to weak or dead engine cranking batteries. By providing redundant starting power directly from the UPS output, the engine starter is assured a healthy and continuous power source that does not require replacement and is temperature tolerant. For critical power customers concerned about battery maintenance or challenging battery environments, the generator set start module provides a reliable backup for genset starting batteries.

Reliable Power Protection for Critical Applications

Cat® UPS systems provide constant power protection against surges, sags, and power interruptions that can disrupt operations or cause loss of valuable data or system capacity. Additionally, the use of the optional generator set start module can dramatically increase generator set starting reliability in a continuous power configuration.

Superior Design

Superior system design and the use of robust digital components throughout the system yield the most reliable and trouble-free UPS system on the market. Protection is delivered in the industry’s smallest package with the highest efficiency and superior performance.

Lower Total Cost

The high operating efficiency means yearly savings versus traditional battery UPS products. In addition, lower Cat UPS heat rejection reduces up front HVAC costs and electrical consumption over the life of the product.

Generator Set Integration

By cancelling harmonic distortion, the UPS operates seamlessly with generator sets to provide a higher total electrical load capacity without over sizing the generator set. The UPS effectively insulates the generator set from block loads and transient, and can improve its fault clearing capabilities. Programmable integration with standby generator sets assures greater system reliability and improves the total system operation.
