Doosan Portable Power has launched the company’s first Tier 4 Final generator — the G240WCU.
The G240 includes a reconfigured control panel with a newly integrated digital controller, the DynaGen® TG-410 rugged controller. The panel combines multiple machine parameters into one easy-to-decipher display. A telematics feature allows users remote access to desired information.
The G240 Tier 4 Final model is designed to maximize machine uptime with diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technologies, wherein particulate matter and hydrocarbons are captured and broken down in the DOC. The exhaust is then conditioned by diesel exhaust fuel, and nitrous oxide is separated in the SCR to achieve near-zero emissions, meeting Tier 4 Final regulations.
The model is equipped with a three-position voltage configuration, plus an additional 600 V option through the Doosan Quad Voltage feature, allowing users to select the most appropriate voltage by application, thereby conserving power and fuel. Users can select from among 120/240V-1Ø; 208V-3Ø; 480V-3Ø; and 600V-3Ø. The voltage configuration also includes the industry’s only operation protection scheme that prevents users from inadvertently switching voltage during operation, a common cause of downtime and component failure. Further enhancing generator versatility is a dual-frequency switch, which allows users to select from 50 to 60 hertz via the flick of a switch.
Operation and maintenance on the G240 is facilitated through with curbside-located battery, fuel and air filters, oil fill and fuel fill. The OEM recommends 500-hour service intervals.
The G240 is powered by a Cummins QSB7-G6 Tier 4 Final, 282-horsepower engine, with a fuel tank capacity of 368 gallons for 26 hours’ runtime at 100 percent load, a 5 percent increase in runtime over the Tier 4i technology. The G240 Tier 4 Final is equipped with a Leroy-Somer alternator with AREP excitation protecting against overload and short-circuit and encouraging voltage stability and greater motor-starting capability.
