JCB launches Rental Series Generator with EU Stage V power
JCB has introduced its first Rental Series (RS) generator set with EU Stage V power, offering customers increased prime output with reduced emissions.
The G40RS V replaces the Stage IIIA G36RS model, delivering 40kVA at 50Hz frequency.
Key features include:
- Electronically-controlled JCB by Kohler engine
- Combined DPF and DOC with no requirement for SCR
- 87% less NOx and 96% lower PM per kW/h
- Single-side service access for ease of maintenance
- Aftertreatment mounted in front of radiator for compact engine compartment
The G40RS V rental generator set is an easily transportable power generation system that has been designed to work in the harshest rental environments. Built on an over-gauge base frame, with a 2mm thick Galvtec steel canopy, the G40RS V has a 40mm fixed single point lift point, four base frame lifting points and integrated fork pockets, for rapid deployment to site. The integrated fully bunded fuel tank has ADR compliance, for safe road transport, and the canopy has vertical hot air discharge vents, to reduce noise and prevent dust swirl around the set on site.
The generator is powered by a JCB by Kohler KDI 2504 TCR four-cylinder turbocharged engine, developing 42.4kW (57hp). This uses a single-can Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), that is mounted in front of the radiator to retain slim canopy dimensions. The DOC is maintenance-free and the DPF is regularly cleaned using regeneration. The regeneration strategy has been designed to maintain optimal machine operation, even at low loads and temperatures, maximising uptime for the customer.
Large, lockable doors provide easy access to all service points and routine service intervals are set at 500 hours. All replaceable filters are located on the cold side of the engine, while a lift-off panel provides access to the cooling pack, loadbank elements and the DOC/DPF canister. There is no requirement for SCR or Diesel Exhaust Fluid (AdBlue).
The G40RS V can be supplied with DSE7310 or DSE8610 (synch) controllers, providing an industry familiar control environment. A four-pole Schneider circuit breaker is standard and there is an emergency stop button mounted on the canopy, adjacent to the control section. All controls are located behind a lockable door with viewing window and are shielded from the engine compartment.
The optional DSE8610 synch controller allows the G40RS V to be easily connected to other machines, to deliver flexible, adaptable power as required. JCB LiveLink telematics provide standard remote monitoring, in effect placing a virtual engineer with every RS generator set on site. The ADR-compliant fuel tank provides a minimum of 24 hours operating autonomy and the lifting points have been designed to allow fully-fuelled delivery.
With clean Stage V power, common DSE control systems and premium MeccAlte alternators, in a proven robust yet compact package, the G40RS V leads the way for Stage V adoption in the JCB Power Products Rental Series generator line-up.
