The new G3512 Cat gas standby generator sets are engineered to deliver a quick return to stable power. These units can start in as little as 6.5 seconds, facilitating compliance with NFPA 110 Level 1 Type 10. The generator set also meets the requirements for UL2200 listing and EPA emissions certification. The G3512 is capable of accepting 100% rated load in a single step.
The generator set meets Class G2 ISO 8528-5 transient response for a 30% load step. For full transient capabilities, see the SpecSizer from CAT.
Appropriate applications for the G3512 are emergency standby, legally required standby, and optional standby systems. In many cases, the gas standby engines can double as power sources for peaking service or utility-based demand response programs when not needed for emergency duty. Their potential dual purpose means facility managers may reap more electrical savings, along with a quicker return on the standby investment.
CAT gas standby generator sets are backed by a two-year standard standby warranty, up to 500 hours per year.
