Cat Generator Set Package

Cat generator set packages have been fully prototype tested, and certified torsional vibration analysis reports are available. The packages are designed to accept 100% load in one step, meet the NFPA 110 requirement for loading, and conform to the ISO 8528-5 steady state and transient response requirements.

Cat Diesel Engines

The four cycle Cat diesel engine combines consistent performance with excellent fuel economy and transient response that meets or exceeds ISO 8528-5. The engines have been designed and built for a wide range of applications and can be optimized for lowest fuel consumption, low emissions, or U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified configurations. The engines feature a reliable, rugged, and durable design that has been field proven in thousands of applications worldwide from emergency standby installations to continuously operating power plants.


The generators used on Cat packages have been designed and tested to work with the Cat engine. The generators are built with robust Class H insulation and provide industry leading motor starting capability. Random wound generators provide good generator performance in a majority of applications and form wound is available for harsh mechanical and electrical environments.

EMCP Control Panels

The EMCP controller features the reliability and durability you have come to expect from your Cat equipment. The EMCP 4 is a scalable control platform designed to ensure reliable generator set operation, providing extensive information about power output and engine operation. EMCP 4 systems can be further customized to meet your needs through programming and expansion modules.

Cooling System

The cooling system has been designed to operate in standard ambient temperatures up to 50°C (122°F), with optional high ambient radiators available. The factory installed cooling system has been designed and tested to ensure proper generator set cooling, and includes the radiator, fan, belts, and all guarding installed as standard. Contact your Cat Dealer for specific ambient and altitude capabilities.
