Single Phase Generators

Single phase units are efficient power solutions that are perfect for various uses. These machines produce electricity with just one wave of power, making them ideal for smaller homes, workshops, and businesses.

They are especially handy during power outages or for running essential appliances like refrigerators and lights. Our silent diesel single phase options not only provide reliable electricity but also operate quietly, ensuring minimal disruption. Choose these for dependable and peaceful power backup.

Our selection of single phase units range from 15.5 kVA up to 30 kVA, ensuring that whether you simply need to backup a few crucial appliances or your entire home, we have the solution perfect for your needs. The CAT DE33GC 1ph is a dedicated single phase standby machine capable of an output of 22 kVA. Or if you need something more powerful, the Cummins C38D5 1ph can produce up to 30 kVA for 240V standby applications.

Three Phase Generators

Three phase units are different to their single phase alternatives. This is due to how the electrical current is handled. They alternate the electrical current being generated by the magnetic field depending on the needs of the situation. They essentially offer a better power supply, making these extremely robust machines even more reliable and ideal for larger jobs. For example, as emergency backup power for business & industrial applications in the event of emergencies or power outages. These types of units have a larger footprint than smaller portable options and have to be installed in a fixed position on your premises.

Silent generators are designed and built in such a way to minimise the amount of noise produced. Open units are not suitable for residential settings due to their high noise levels and lack of overall protection. The purpose of enclosing the genset in a soundproof acoustic canopy is to allow them to be utilised in locations where noise needs to be kept below certain levels by law. They can also be used by businesses that don't want excessive noise to be distracting to staff or customers.

We have many different silent gensets available on our website, and they all offer something slightly different to their competitors. Cummins & CAT's silent diesel ranges are both very popular, with one of the most in demand machines being the Cummins C22D5. It uses the Cummins X2.5-G2 engine, and is known to be one of the best in the industry when it comes to generating a reliable electrical output at the 20 kVA (16 kW) power level. It features the easy-to-use Cummins PowerStart PS0600 control panel and has an output of 22 kVA (18 kW) standby, 20 kVA (16 kW) prime. The CAT DE33GC silent diesel genset comes with a CAT C3.3 engine. With a standby output of 33 kVA (26.4 kW), it's a powerful model with a lot to offer at that power level.

Those are just 2 of the many silent diesel models we offer, and there are plenty of others. Our collection ranges from 10 kVA all the way up to high-end options such as the Cummins C900D5 and the CAT DE220GC. The main benefits associated with all these models is that they're extremely reliable, durable and able to meet all of your power needs.

Open Generators

Three phase open diesel sets work in the same way. The alternator is the responsible device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy and the electrical current is handled the same. But the main difference is in the level of physical protection provided and the noise that is produced. Because there is no canopy to provide sound protection, the noise is much louder. As a result, these options are much better for export and heavy duty commercial & industrial situations. They're not suitable for use in residential areas where high noise levels would be an issue. This should all factor into your decision making when choosing the perfect unit for your requirements.

Open units are also a lot more powerful than silent alternatives as they span the top end of the power output range. Their size and sound levels mean that they're used mostly in industrial settings in which it is mission-critical that systems remain online 24/7. Because of that, we only stock the most reliable models. It's important that businesses can keep going when they're relying on their backup power source. Cummins produce some of the most powerful and reliable open diesel gensets on the planet.

Cummins offer 5 models at the highest end of the scale (2500 kVA +). The 2500 kVA C2500D5A, 2750 kVA C2750D5, C2750D5B & C2750D5e and finally the 3000 kVA C3000D5. These heavy-duty 4-cycle units are extremely reliable and therefore are trusted by some of the largest companies, power stations & governments in the world to provide emergency backup power. Generators power key facilities such as data centres that require continuous power 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

There are less powerful options that we also supply if you're not looking for something quite as high-end. The Cummins C1675D5A is a very popular option that many people turn to when they need a reliable open diesel genset. It offers a prime power output of 1500 kVA (1200 kW), which is more than enough for most industrial requirements. At 640 kVA (512 kW) prime, there's also the Cummins C700D5, which offers the reliability, convenience and high standards you'd expect from Cummins. It contains the Cummins VTA28 series engine, which is turbo-charged. If you want to find out more about this machine or need help choosing between the wide range of options we have, check the product details or get in touch with our customer service team directly.

Are you worried about issues with a loss of power? This can be a nightmare in your business or even in your home. Luckily, our range of products will provide the perfect power solution you need. These will ensure that your main systems continue to function or that your entire business can operate normally during a power cut.

Standby Generators

If you are running a business, it is important that you can still function and operate during a power outage. Even a couple of hours of downtime could impact your levels of profitability and hit your business hard. That's why you need to make sure that you have a standby power solution. These provide the peace of mind that you need to ensure your business can continue to run completely unaffected by a break in power.

A standby diesel genset operates as a backup power source. And when paired with an automatic transfer switch, the unit will automatically kick in and take over when the main supply of power gets disrupted.

It is also beneficial when mains power returns. When this happens, the system will detect this and automatically switch the load back to the primary power source and send a signal to the genset to begin powering down. It will remain at this point until the next time there is an issue with your power supply in your home or business.

You'll find that there are standby units for every type and size of home or business. You're sure to be able to find one that matches your needs as well as your budget.
