Diesel Generator Set
Cummins Power Systems Industrial
20KW standby rated

Cummins brand power generation systems are the result of integrated design and manufacturing intended to satisfy your requirements for rated performance and reliable and efficient operation.  For either standby or prime power,

Extreme weather, construction activities, and countless other unforeseen power complications can suddenly interrupt the electrical service you depend on to continue your operations and activities.  You can have complete peace of mind, knowing that during a power outage your Cummins Standby System will activate to provide the power necessary to run vital systems.

Fully automatic, the system detects an interruption of electrical service and engages to power your essential systems.  When utility power is restored, the standby system shuts down, automatically resetting itself.  The entire power transfer cycle is fully automatic -- it is not necessary to be present for this system to work!


Cummins Diesel Generator Sets

Cummins series water-cooled diesel-fueled generator sets offer the traditional rugged durability and reliability in applications as diverse as standby power for nursing homes or wireless services and prime power for small, unattended remote stations or large applications.  User-friendly operation and maintenance features include:

* Weather-protective housings and coolant heaters to shield the genset
   from extreme ambient conditions.

* Space-saving options, such as in-skid fuel tanks

* Mulit-level controls for automatic, local, or remote start capabilities

* Complete options and accessories
