Cummins C50 N6

Brand: Cummins
Equipment Price: starting at $20472

Product Description

Robust Design and Testing: The generator is meticulously crafted to operate effectively under extreme environmental conditions, even capable of reliable cold weather starts as low as -40ºF. It undergoes rigorous testing and certification in line with the latest EPA, UL, and IBC Seismic standards. With the necessary accessories and proper installation, it can meet NFPA110 requirements.

Adaptable Exercise Mode: An innovative and versatile exercise mode empowers the generator to run at a time, frequency, and duration that align with the customer’s preferences, potentially as briefly as 2 minutes every 6 months. This flexibility minimizes unnecessary fuel consumption, emissions, and noise.

Advanced Enclosure Design: The aesthetically pleasing enclosure incorporates specialized designs that result in the quietest generator of its kind. Constructed from aluminum and coated with durable powder paint, it delivers top-tier anti-corrosion performance. This enclosure has undergone thorough evaluation to withstand wind loads of up to 180 mph according to ASCE 7-10 standards. Its intelligent design includes removable panels and service doors, ensuring easy access for maintenance and servicing.

Integrated Control System: The standard PowerCommand® electronic control system provides seamless integration of the generator set, featuring automatic remote starting and stopping, precise regulation of frequency and voltage, clear display of alarms and status messages, output metering, automatic shutdown in case of faults, and compliance with NFPA 110 level 1 standards.

Efficient Self-Diagnostics and Maintenance: The PowerCommand® electronic control system sets an industry standard with its exceptional self-diagnostic capabilities. Additionally, key generator components are designed to facilitate swift and efficient servicing and preventive maintenance, minimizing downtime.
