With a standby power rating of 550kVA this 500kVA diesel generator is capable of supporting critical applications as a back up power source when the mains supply fails. By housing the engine inside a weatherproof acoustic silent canopy, it can be installed outdoors with minimized sound disturbance for surrounding neighbors.
All CPS canopied diesel generators are fitted with a long run base fuel tank, which will easily support full load for 8 hours or more, giving you peace of mind that you will have reliable backup power when the mains fails.
As an optional extra they can be fitted with an auxiliary battery charger and engine jacket water heater, so that it is ready for use as a standby generator to protect your building from an outage.
CPS generators only use leading brand components from the main engines and alternators, right through to the wiring terminals and hoses. This gives you the confidence that your generator will have a long service life and be easily supported with spare part availability.
All of the CPS generators listed on our store are powered with UK Perkins engines, which are some of the best engines on the market and have been used across numerous industries worldwide. The generator alternators are all from leading European brands such as Meccalte, Leroy Somer and Stamford.
Leading Brand Generator Control – Deep Sea Electronics UK
Inside the 500kVA diesel generator canopy is a controls and power enclosure which features a Deep Sea Electronics generator controller. These are the best generator controllers on the market and allow you to easily control and monitor all aspects of the engine and alternator performance such as:
