JCB Power Products is adding to its popular S range of generators, with the addition of seven new open set models, aimed at a wide range of industries in the rapidly expanding Middle East and African markets. All models are powered by the well-supported Volvo diesel engines and feature Mecc Alte alternators, Deep Sea Electronics (DSE) controllers and Schneider switchgear. 

The range is offered in both 50Hz and 60Hz frequencies, with a standby output of 275kVA to 770kVA at 50Hz and 375kVA to 750kVA standby power at 60Hz. The new models will be powered by the 7, 13 and 16 litre engines, and coupled together with high efficiency Mecc Alte alternators to deliver a dependable generator offering reliability and fuel efficiency.

The engines provide smooth, low vibration operation, together with low noise levels, making it the ideal solution for installation into a noise sensitive location. Flexible exhaust bellows and a range of engine exhaust silencer options ensure easy integration of the generator into a plant room or other fixed installation.

To provide ultimate strength and durability, a robust base frame has been designed with a 110% capacity bund and a drop in fuel tank. To aid lifting and positioning, JCB has fitted integrated fork pockets and lifting points as standard. 

Monitoring of operational performance is easy with a range of DSE controllers. To support customer requirements, the standard fit auto-start unit is perfect for both prime and standby use, while a DSE synchronising controller provides the flexibility to enable multiple units to be connected together to cope with peak electrical demands, as well as single machine mode to minimise fuel consumption. 

As with all of the S models, these machines are designed for ultimate productivity and efficiency in many environments so a range of options can be specified to match both the location and application. For standby use, the optional static battery charger, anti-condensation heaters and block heater ensure that the generators are always ready to deliver in emergency situations. For prime running applications the enhanced alternator winding protection and advanced fuel filtration ensure maximum durability and long service life.  

As with all of JCB Power Products’ S range generator sets, the seven new models benefit from JCB’s established dealer support network. These models can be specified with JCB’s LiveLink telematics system, providing real-time location, maintenance and operating data. Customers will also benefit from one-call service support, through their JCB Power Products dealer, with no requirement to contact component suppliers, to ensure rapid, reliable and consistent back-up.
