Gas Generators - Low CO / 5EKD


Engine features:
  • Integral heat exchanger
  • CARB/EPA emission compliant (Low CO)
  • One-side serviceability of fuel filter, cooling systems, and lubrication system
  • Sequential-port throttle-body fuel injected
  • Attached overflow bottle

Generator features:
  • Remote start 12-pin connector
  • Voltage regulation of ±1.5%
  • Rotor and stator are vacuum impregnated and coated with high-bond epoxy varnish. Varnish helps prevent corrosion in high-humidity areas.
  • Copper windings ensure minimal heat buildup. Insulation meets NEMA standards for class H insulation.
  • Directly connected to the engine, the generator has sealed precision ball bearings with a precision-machined steel sleeve in the end bracket (or end bearing tolerance ring) to prevent shaft misalignment and extend bearing life.
