Overview

Small footprint, big power. Many of our customers want to power their homes during an outage but don't need to use heavy appliances until power is restored. This generator does just that and has enough reserve should you wish to use some heavy devices it is possible with some basic power conservation.

This Aurora diesel generator is powered by a compact Perkins, liquid cooled, three-cylinder engine. It offers the same long life and durability we have come to expect from larger standby generators. We used the best controller, alternator, battery, muffler, stainless steel hardware, wires, insulation and electrical component we could. We made it so tough and told our customers all the great things about it. They then asked us, “why is it still just a one year warranty?” That’s when we decided to eliminate all possible objections and double it. Today, our warranty is more than double what any other generator company has in the same class generator, its FIVE years!

There is no longer lasting gasoline, natural gas or propane generator that can compare. When you compare fuel and replacement costs of running a diesel generator to other types of generators, diesel is the least expensive and the most reliable option.

Generator Controller - Features & Functions

For clear generator instrumentation, protection and control, this generator uses a DynaGen TG350 Controller.

DynaGen Generator Controller TG350

Controller Main Features

There are two versions of this controller. The TG350 is included. The TG410 is an optional upgrade. With the TG410, current sensors can be used to monitor generator loads/power consumption.  One other feature is the "Can Bus" port. Like a vehicles ODBII connector, it lets you communicate with the generator for remote monitoring and control.  You will need the TG410 if you wish to use this in the future. 


Monitoring Functions

Engine Temperature

VDO Temperature Sender for Perkins Engines

Engines normally use just a high temperature sensor that is used by the engine / generator controller to shut down the motor if it over heats.  AURORA adds an additional temperature sending unit so you can read the temperature and the controller can log warning levels and failures.  VDO is a leader engine temperature sensors and is the manufacture of choice for AURORA generators temperature monitoring.  

Coolant Level Sensor

Radiator Coolant Level Sensor

Engine temperature sending units and sensors are supposed to detect overheating. If coolant levels are low or missing, they do not work.  This is why AURORA also uses a coolant level sensor to sense the loss of coolant and shut down the engine if necessary. The controller will log the event and let you take corrective action. Refill any missing coolant and the sensor will return to normal state.

Oil Pressure

Perkins Caterpillar Oil Pressure Sensor Sending Unit

Oil pressure is an important factor in the longevity of an engine. Oil pressure ensures that the metal parts moving in the engine, never touch each other. An oil pressure switch is standard on every engine/generator. Should oil pressure ever be lost, the engine controller will shut down the motor.

For some installations, customers may be required to keep track and log the actual oil pressure.  For this, another optional oil pressure sending until is available. Knowing the actual oil pressure will help you know if the engine has warmed up, oil is flowing as it should, filters are not plugged, oil is breaking down or engine wear is happening and service is required.

Fuel Level

Fuel Level Sensor / Sending Unit

Aurora fuel tanks have a fuel level sensor installed. The controller can display a warning when the fuel level is low. The generator can be set to shut down before its empty. Shutting down before it is empty helps prevent difficult starting caused by air that enters the fuel pump and fuel injectors.

Generator Output

The generator controller monitors the power generated by the alternator. From the output voltage, it can determine the engine speed in rpm, alternator frequency and voltage output are correct.  If they start to fall outside of set normal ranges, it will warn you and log it for future reference. Any critical errors will cause the generator to safely shut down.

Diesel Engine

This generator uses a ultra compact three-cylinder diesel engine from Perkins. It offers exceptional performance and long life.  Perkins engines are Radiator Liquid Cooled and can operate full or part time.  Perkins engines require fewer oil, air and fuel filter changes (every 500 hours depending on load factor). The low fuel consumption and ultra-compact engine offer all the customer benefits experienced from larger engine sizes. The engine has a proven record and has been in use worldwide for many years in providing power for homes, business and construction equipment.
