New JCB generators built to stand the heat

JCB Construction Equipment Australia’s (JCB CEA) new mobile generators are built to last in even the harshest environments. Nine of the JCB generator models from the QS Series are coming to Australia.

According to Dave Moselen, JCB CEA National Product Manager for JCB Power Products, the new QS series generators are fitted with JCB engines to provide power and superior performance, and have been tried and proven in 200,000 machines around the world.

“Each model has three-stage fuel filters and an optional self-cleaning air filter to protect the engine from premature wear. The whole range has been tested and operated to withstand temperatures over 50 degrees Celsius. This means they can provide non-stop power and performance no matter where they are installed,” Dave says.

The JCB generators are fitted with a high quality steel canopy incorporating a single piece roof that is protected by a phosphate dip and a seven stage paint process. This ensures increased strength and durability for even the most extreme conditions.

“The noise levels in the QS series generators is as low as 62dBA. This makes them them ideal for a range of applications.”

Large heavy-duty service doors give great access for regular servicing. There are also robust removable hinges so operators can easily lift the doors off for easier maintenance access.

All models 65kVA and above include JCB LiveLink, which offers real-time information on maintenance, run hours, and security straight to a computer, tablet or mobile device. LiveLink allows operators to monitor and manage the power generators to maximise productivity, decrease running costs and increase efficiency.

“We understand that our mobile generators are frequently used in remote locations or other harsh environments. JCB LiveLink allows users to check their generator in real-time. They can also easily switch between power usage levels when there are changing conditions,” Dave says.

“On top of that, the models are equipped with Mecc Alte alternators which are among the most efficient in the current market.”

The QS series generators provide easy programming and monitoring performance with the standard-fit Deep Sea Electronics (DSE) 4510 control panel. The large screen and multilingual settings make it a simple-to-use unit that can be operated by anyone.

The generators also come with an optional DSE 4520 control panel, which includes a transfer switch for smooth change-over between mains and generator power in the events of main failure.
