Caterpillar introduces new XQ45 and XQ60 diesel generator sets with ACERT technology

Caterpillar has introduced two new mobile diesel rental generator sets, the XQ45 and XQ60, which both feature ACERT technology to meet new EPA emissions requirements without sacrificing performance. These generator sets are ideal for small business owners and other customers who need prime or standby power support in a complete package.

Combining maximum performance and ease of use, the XQ45 and XQ60 generator set packages are designed specifically for the rental market. They feature NEMA 1 steel, sound-attenuated, weatherproof enclosures that feature an internally mounted exhaust silencer and corrosion-resistant, rugged construction, including Class H insulation with coastal insulation protection. Security is built in, with lockable access doors to the safety glass control panel viewing window, fuel fill and maintenance-free battery.

Located on a single side, the large doors and access panels to controls are easy to reach. The XQ45 and XQ60 feature an analog control panel that provides an easy-to-use interface with full-function instrumentation and safety features. The control panel centralizes gauges for oil pressure, engine temperature, voltage, amperage, frequency, fuel level and battery voltage. Indicators alert customers to low coolant level, low fuel level or fuel leak, low oil pressure, overspeed and emergency shutdown. Safety is further enhanced by three-pole UL/CSA-listed molded case circuit breakers.

Through advanced fuel delivery strategies, air management and highly developed electronic systems, the generator sets’ turbocharged Cat C4.4 engines with ACERT technology meet EPA Tier 3 non-road mobile applications emissions regulations without compromising fuel consumption or increasing the weight of the unit. Both the XQ45 and XQ60 feature an ADEMTM A4 engine control module.

The XQ45 is rated at 45kW (standby)/41kW (prime) at 60Hz, while the XQ60 is rated at 60kW (standby)/53kW (prime) at 60Hz. Both generator sets offer switchable voltage output: 480/277V and 208/120V at three-phase and 240/120V at one-phase. The generator sets are permanent magnet excited and feature an R438 voltage regulator.
