November 23, 2014 – Caterpillar says its Cat XQ375 is its first mobile diesel genset to meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards.

Suitable for mid-sized power needs, the rental genset is rated for standby operation at 375ekW, promising enhanced sound attenuation and “simpler, faster” voltage changes. The genset is also rated for prime operation at 290ekW, 320ekW or 340ekW, depending on voltage and frequency. It is powered by the Cat C13 ACERT engine equipped with the Cat NOx Reduction System. Equipped with the EMCP 4.4 control panel, the XQ375 features a user-friendly interface and automatic genset paralleling. A principle advantage of the control system is the auto-configuration of key performance parameters when voltage changes are required, says Caterpillar: the EMCP 4.4, ADEM A4 and Cat digital voltage regulator (DVR) sense changes and adjust the parameters for optimum performance.
