Cummins debuts light commercial gensets 20kW to 60kW
By Alyssa Dalton
December 9, 2013 – Cummins Power Generation has introduced a new family of gas generator sets with output ratings from 20kW to 60kW designed for light commercial standby power applications.
Operating on either natural gas or LP, the generator sets boast reliable backup power for businesses, as well as those needing three-phase power. The new light commercial series is powered by the Cummins QSJ2.4 and features Cummins CA series alternators that have been developed exclusively for this family of generators. The QSJ2.4 is a 4-cylinder inline engine that can be switched between LP or natural gas with no mechanical changes. The electronic closed loop fuel system of the QSJ2.4 allows the engine to perform in varying altitude and temperature ranges without needing any manual fuel adjustments, boasts the company, adding that the electronic system design results in fewer components that may break and need repairs. The generator sets are available in two engine configurations that operate at either 1800 RPM or 3600 RPM, and meet UL 2200, IBC seismic and NFPA 110 standards.
