FG Wilson have expanded their industry-leading PRO Rental range of generator sets with a new PRO100 model. The range has been developed in close co-operation with rental fleet operators and has been designed for lower operator costs and a long and efficient operating life.
The entire PRO range comes with 500 hour service intervals, with 1000 hour service intervals as an option, industry-leading fuel consumption and a 110% extended capacity fully bunded fuel tank. The range, which fully meets EUIIIa emissions requirements, gives increased flexibility to rental operators by easily switching between 50 and 60 Hz while maintaining emissions and noise certification at both frequencies. This means that one machine can satisfy varying load requirements across diverse applications including industrial, manufacturing, events, oil & gas and construction.
The PRO275 to PRO500 models include a viscous clutch fan drive which means the fan of the generator set no longer needs to run continuously at full speed and power. This leads to improved fuel economy and lower noise levels when operating under part loads. Additional benefits include reduced water, dust and snow ingress and lower air flow in cold weather conditions. The clutch itself requires no maintenance.
The range is designed for easy installation with common component mounting positions, cable access directly underneath the control panel via the side of the generator set, customer connections isolated from main breaker, grouped fuel connections, baseframe lifting points, gauge and fill pipe as standard.
Enclosures, fully galvanised with two coat polyester powder-coated finish, offer excellent noise reduction. Side hinged enclosure doors are removable at 90° which enhances maintenance access in confined spaces, while removable end panels facilitate radiator and alternator cleaning and maintenance. For security, enclosures are fully lockable, with a safety glass control panel viewing window, while fuel fill and the battery can be reached only through lockable access doors.
The range comes with FG Wilson’s PowerWizard 2.1+ digital control panel as standard, offering users intuitive menu navigation, advanced metering and protection and full monitoring. The PowerWizard 4.1 digital control panel is available as an option and offers paralleling capability and the ability to customise panel outputs.
FG Wilson will be appearing at the Executive Hire Show in the Ricoh Arena Coventry, Stand A20 on 7 and 8 February and will be exhibiting their PRO150 and PRO275 generator set models
