Release Number: EEPR0516

PEORIA, ILCaterpillar Inc. today announced the launch of new Cat® DG Series gas generator sets ranging from 30 to 150 ekW for small commercial and municipal applications in North America. 

Featuring an updated package design, DG Series gas generator sets operate on natural gas or LP vapor, and they are available with optional sound-attenuated enclosures to efficiently dampen on-site noise and withstand exposure to the elements. 

Available now, DG Series gas generator sets feature Caterpillar’s EMCP 4.2 generator set controller, offering expanded engine and generator protection and monitoring. Flexibility is also increased with the addition of a Modbus RTU communication port, remote annunciator modules and expansion I/O modules to allow the EMCP 4 system to be configured to meet site-specific design requirements. 

Caterpillar currently offers seven three-phase models of DG Series gas generator sets ranging from 30 to 150 ekW and five single-phase models ranging from 30 to 100 ekW.

DG Series gas generator sets can be specified with the web-based Cat Electric Power SpecSizer tool. Available online at, SpecSizer evaluates factors such as site conditions, load characteristics, and required performance to assist in specifying a properly sized generator set to best meet power needs.
