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.
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.
The cooling system has been designed to operate in standard ambient temperatures up to 50°C (122°F) with an airflow 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 C9 Generator 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.
