Producing reliable power from 180 ekW to 300 ekW at 60 Hz, our C9 diesel generator sets are made to meet your standby and prime applications. Each is designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and accept 100 percent rated load in one step. All C9 generator sets are engineered to EPA Stationary Emergency (Tier 3) emissions standards — it’s how we’re helping protect and power the world you live in. Seismic certification is also available to maintain power during unexpected disturbances. Our integrated control system, including ATS and switchgear, ensures a consistent power supply and connection to your fleet through on-site and remote monitoring options. The EMCP 4 control panel, with a user-friendly interface, puts our management and diagnostic tools in one. We offer a wide range of accessories and bolt-on system expansion attachments so you can adapt your generator sets to your needs. Find flexible packaging options to work with your spatial requirements and environmental conditions. Even select from UL 2200 and CSA certified package options for added safety. Tailor your C9 generator sets to take on today’s power needs — and tomorrow’s.

Cat Generator Set Packages

Cat® generator set packages have been fully prototype tested, and certified torsional vibration analysis reports are available. The packages are designed to meet the NFPA 110 requirement for loading, and conform to the ISO 8528-5 steady state and transient response requirements.

Cat Diesel Engines

The four cycle Cat diesel engine combines consistent performance with excellent fuel economy and transient response that meets or exceeds ISO 8528-5. The engines have been designed and built for a wide range of applications and can be optimized for low fuel consumption or low emissions. The engines feature a reliable, rugged, and durable design that has been field proven in thousands of applications worldwide from emergency standby installations to continuously operating power plants.

Cooling System

The cooling system has been designed to operate in standard ambient temperatures up to 50°C (122°F) with an air flow restriction of 0.5 in water. The factory installed cooling system has been designed and tested to ensure proper generator set cooling, and includes the radiator, fan, belts, and all guarding installed as standard. Contact your Cat Dealer for specific ambient and altitude capabilities.


The generators used on Cat packages have been designed and tested to work with the Cat engine. The generators are built with robust Class H insulation and provide industry leading motor starting capability. They provide high efficiency in a majority of applications and optional coastal protection for the windings is available for harsh environments.

Cat EMCP Control Panel

The EMCP controller features the reliability and durability you have come to expect from your Cat equipment. EMCP4 is a scalable control platform designed to ensure reliable generator set operation, providing extensive information about power output and engine operation. EMCP4 systems can be further customized to meet your needs through programming and expansion modules.
