SC 12000Y Liquid Cooled Generator

11/12 KW, 120/240 Volt, 2 Pole, Single Phase, Diesel Generator Set, Heavy Service

The SC 12000Y diesel driven, water cooled genset is powered by the new environmentally friendly Yanmar 3TNE68 engine. This modern engine series meets the most exacting E.P.A. and I.S.O. environmental standards, i.e.: low exhaust emissions and low noise (critical muffler installed). The latest fuel system design provides excellent fuel economy, assuring minimum operating expense.

The state of the art, synchronous, brushless, self excited, electronically regulated generator is designed for continuous single phase power application.

The engine and single bearing type brushless generator are direct coupled, (S.A.E. #5 housing) and then resilient mounted on a welded steel skid base with sound and weather enclosure, and 11.5 gallon fuel tank base.

The newly designed A.C. and D.C. deluxe control panel is divided into two sections. Included is an A.C. 3 pole line circuit breaker (rated for output), A.C., Volt, Amp, Frequency and Hour meters.

D.C. engines provide the user with the ability to monitor the engine status at all times. Key switch starting is also provided to meet safety standards.

These premium diesel generator sets are very well suited to both prime (continuous) and standby (intermittent) electrical power supply. Operation in either mode is without operational hour limitations. (Service factor)
