    10kVA Diesel Generator with canopy

A weather protective acoustic enclosure is included, to protect and prolong the life of your generator. Finished using a robust ripple effect scratch resistant powder coat paint finish, this acoustic canopy will reduce the noise level of the generating set to approximately 80 dB(A) at 1 metre from the machine (70 dB(A) @ 7 m).

  • Heavy duty fabricated steel base frame

The complete generating set is mounted as a whole onto a heavy duty fabricated steel base frame. Anti-vibration pads are fixed between the engine and alternator feet, and the base frame, ensuring complete vibration isolation of the rotating assembly.

  • Bunded Fuel Tank (AS 1940-2004 compliant)

The fuel tank is fully bunded and complies fully with relevant sections in AS 1940-2004. It has a secondary containment compound with a capacity as big or bigger than that of the tank, and is made of surface coated steel. This compound is designed to sufficiently retain spillage and enable recovery of any spillage. For more information regarding AS 1940-2004 compliance refer to the standard, or contact us.

  • Battery Charger

This trickle charge battery charger ensures that your generator can start up when needed. It has 12v charging capabilities with leads supplied.

  • Control Panel with Emergency Stop button

This control panel monitors the controls of a single unit to achieve manual and remote start, data measuring/monitoring, alarm protection and three remote systems (remote control, remote measuring and remote communication). The controller adopts large liquid crystal display (LCD) and has a 32 bit micro-processor with precision parameters for measuring, fixed value adjustment, time setting and threshold adjustment.

  • Prime or Standby Power

Standby: kVA @ 0.8 pf These ratings are applicable for supplying continuous electrical power (at variable loads) in the event of a utility power failure. No overload is permitted on these ratings. Minimum output from alternators are peak continuous rated (as defined in 1SO 8528-3 @ 27°C. Annual hour limitation: 200 hours).

Prime (continuous): kVA @ 0.8 pf. (Divide standby rating by 1.1). Continuous use should not exceed 3 hours and annual operation should not exceed 300 hours within the sanctioned parameters. The average load should not be lower than 40% or higher than 80% of this rating. The generating set and this specification is designed for environmental conditions of up to 45°C, up to 100 m above sea level and up to 60% relative humidity. Ratings at 0.8 pf.
For ratings outside this range, please contact us.

  • Wireless remote push button start
  • Remote/wall mounted mains sensing automatic transfer switch (ATS)
  • Static battery charger to ensure reliable starting when used in an AMF application
  • Single or three phase power
