Nonroad Diesel Engines - The end of portable diesel generators.
EPA in 2012 introduced new emission regulations that require engines to have advanced emission control technologies similar to what highway trucks and buses have. The changes are easy to apply to larger engines. Some of the changes resulted in increased fuel efficiency, lower noise levels, and 99% lower emissions than what was available 10 years ago. Unfortunately the changes if made to the air cooled diesel generators would reduce the output power and make them unless for power generation. The air cooled engine is now history. We have sold out of our stock pile we built in 2012 and so have others. Anyone still selling little portable diesel generators is selling old products that have been sitting around for years. Thank you for your interest in this generator, but it is no longer available. We do have another option.
Aurora Silent Diesel Generator
Since 2005 this has been our most popular generator. Introducing the Aurora 6500SDE Silenced Diesel Generator. Homeowners chose this model more than any other portable diesel generator because it has enough power to get them through emergencies. It is used to power a fridge, freezers, well pumps, furnaces, TVs and lights. Because it is quieter then traditional generators and produces virtually no visible smoke it makes it ideal for residential neighborhoods.
Many generator companies would have you believe they sell a quality product. Without some quality assurance company and certification backing them up, the claims are meaningless. Electrical devices must have UL, CSA or ETL laboratory testing for safety and to insure performance requirements are met. Without approvals buyers have no guarantee of quality. Certification is also required by law in most jurisdictions.
Aurora Generators are proud to be the only company selling a generator of this kind that is ETL approved to CSA Standard 22.2 No 100. We don’t just talk about quality, we have quality assurance companies backing up our claims.
Aurora generators are created differently
When starting this generator you have two options. You can use a key switch like you do when starting a car or you can use the included remote control.
For cold weather starting, this generator has a built in pre
A digital multi-meter is used on this silent diesel generator. The meter shows voltage, hour usage and frequency. This new frequency counter shows the operating frequency to 0.1 Hz This is a very useful feature. Many computers and UPS power supplies require exactly 60Hz output and since engine speed is directly proportional to output frequency, you can now make these adjustments and monitor them on this display.
Voltage adjustments are also easy to make. Many other companies install theirs inside the alternator where they often overheat and fail. Installing it outside of the alternator eliminates complicated dis-assembly and makes making fine voltage regulator adjustments easy.
Aurora generators like this one are approved to CSA Standard 22.2 No 100 This means they are built better and electrically sound. It is a standard few others can compare to. The CSA Standards are far better than European CE or even UL Standards. It is also a guarantee that no aluminum wiring is used.
Cold Start Pre-Heater Pre-heater can be turned on to pre-heat air fuel mixture for easier cold starting. Warming the air fuel mixture helps it to vaporize in the combustion chamber and helps eliminate any starting difficulties traditionally found on other generators that don't use one.
The built-in remote control gives you wireless control over the generator starting function. Two transmitters are included. Many other generators made in China use remote controls on frequencies that here in North America may be used for other devices resulting in poor performance and interference. The ones used by us not only carry electrical approval, they also have FCC approval unlike other manufactures
These types of generators are often referred to as silent. That is because they are much quieter then their open frame versions or a gas equivalent. Aurora Generators are even quieter in competition for a few reasons. Aurora uses higher quality insulation, heavier enclosures and a better muffler system. Two mufflers and a combination flex pipe / catalytic converter are used here. The exhaust is clear and cool. Emissions are cleaner than from a gasoline generator and are safer for the environment. Stinky black smoke something you should only see on other generators.
Spare Filters We include a free set of spare air and oil filters. The oil filter is washable and can be reused a few times. Oil changes are normally done after the first 25
