When trying to specify which diesel generator is suitable for your power or backup requirements, you may be tempted to purchase a 3-phase or 400 volt generator. On the face of it, these 400v / 230v generators provide more power output compared to single phase 230v stand alone sets in a cost to power comparison.
When browsing diesel generators, you will notice that there are power ratings displayed in kVA or kW ratings, but noted as ‘Standby power’ or ‘Prime power’ variations.
These are defined by regulations stated out in ISO 8528 standard.
If you run a diesel generator on very light loads, the engine is unlikely to reach an adequate temperature as it is burning or combustion less fuel and generally working too light.
The optimum temperature for a diesel generator is when it is being used to power between 30% to 80% of its rated power output.
All of our ECO diesel generators are powered by high quality, industrial Cummins engines.
If you open the industrial grade canopy to expose the engine, on the top of the engine block, there is a data (or specification) plate, which will display the date of manufacture, the serial number and importantly (when ordering replacement parts or filters) the engine model number.
