Cummins QSX15 Series Diesel Generator Sets

Overview

This Cummins® Power Generation commercial generator set is a fully integrated power generation system, providing optimum performance, reliability, and versatility for stationary standby and prime power.

  • Cummins® heavy-duty engine – Rugged 4-cycle industrial diesel delivers reliable power, low emissions and fast response to load changes.
  • Optional permanent magnet generator (PMG) – Offers enhanced motor starting and fault clearing short circuit capability. Alternator – Low reactance 2/3 pitch windings; low waveform distortion with non-linear loads, fault clearing short-circuits capability, and class H insulation.
  • Cooling system – Standard integral set mounted radiator system, designed and tested for rated ambient temperatures, simplifies facility design requirements for rejected heat.
  • Control system – The PowerCommand® electronic control is standard equipment and provides total genset system integration, including auto remote start/stop, precise frequency and voltage regulation, alarm and status message display, AmpSentry protection and output metering.
  • Enclosures – Optional weather-protective and sound attenuated enclosures.
  • Warranty – Backed by a comprehensive warranty and Worldwide distributor network.
