Cummins Power Generation has introduced a new series of 100-, 125- and 150-kW generator sets that feature new sound-attenuated enclosure systems and the Tier-3-compliant QSB7 Cummins diesel engine. Available in steel or aluminum with two levels of sound attenuation, the generator sets and enclosure packages are intended for all-weather outdoor use where local ordinances or circumstances require sound abatement. In addition to sound-attenuated enclosures, the company also offers weather-protective generator set enclosures. The quieter sound-attenuation package features an enhanced exhaust silencer and steel construction with sound-absorbing material, which limit sound levels to 67.5 dB(A) for the 100 kW generator set package, 68.6 dB(A) for the 125 kW package, and 69.6 dB(A) for the 150 kW package (measured at 23 feet with the generator set operating at full rated load).
