Perkins has announced the launch of the 2806J-E18TAG1 ElectropaK generator, a new addition to the range of EU Stage V power offerings. The generator features a new engine that delivers a powerful package and integration, to meet the requirements of the electric power sector.
By achieving ISO 8528-5 G2 performance, the 2806J provides load acceptance in a wide range of electric power applications. From a stationary prime source of power to a mobile unit serving the rental sector, the 2806J performs reliably in various scenarios from jobsites to critical installations including hospitals and data centers.
“Reliable electric power is not an option, it’s a fundamental need to keep operations running, whether that’s for standby when the mains power fails or to meet onsite prime power requirements,” said Jaz Gill, vice president of global sales, marketing, service and parts. “Our engines are engineered and expertly crafted to provide reliable, stable and sustainable power for our customers, with the new 2806J being the latest in a long line of products that also deliver a low total cost of ownership.”
For generator manufacturers and end users looking to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, the 2806J can, subject to the fuel used meeting Perkins’ fuel specifications*, run with biodiesel up to B20 based on a 20 percent dilution of biodiesel with standard diesel or on 100 percent hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO).
The 2806J produces up to 610 kVA at 50 Hz and is switchable to 60 Hz, delivering up to 625 kVA. The ElectropaK features a single, on-engine electronic control module (ECM) that simplifies wiring harnesses and installation, supports future diagnostics and is capable of integration with customers’ telematics solution. The ECM also manages several aspects of aftertreatment operation and regeneration without operator input. Regeneration occurs automatically with minimal impact to performance.
Additionally, Perkins offers a powerful and growing portfolio of connectivity solutions that can help promote the performance of diesel engines. Available as a standalone service from Perkins or integrated with generator equipment manufacturers’ offerings, connected engine capabilities deliver insights through a customizable dashboard of performance, fuel and oil consumption and other engine data points that support Perkins-powered equipment.
These connectivity offerings are integrated with maintenance and service capabilities from the Perkins global distributor network to prompt the proactive diagnosis and resolution of engine issues.
The new 2806J-E18TAG1 joins the Perkins full line up of Stage V certified engines for electric power generation; 400 Series, 904 Series, 1200 Series, 1700 Series and the 2000 Series, with power ranging from 4 kW at 1,500 rpm to 559 kW at 1,500 rpm.
