Perkins 10 kW Diesel Generator
Home, Industrial and Off-Grid
10 kW Prime
70 dB Enclosed
57" x 33" x 46"
12 Gallon / 45 Litres
This generator is a popular choice for home, commercial and off-grid applications. Auto-start, exercise and advanced instrumentation, protection and control are some of the standard features in this model.
For the homeowner, this 10 kW size is perfect for powering your fridge, freezer, stove, water pump, fans and lights. In addition, it can power a few window air conditioners but likely not enough to power central air conditioning.
The generator can operate full or part-time as needed and has a typical life span of over 20,000 hours of use in any application.
When it comes to producing clean, low-cost, dependable power, the most popular choice worldwide is diesel.
Diesel-powered generators cost less to operate, last an incredibly long time and are virtually indestructible.
New clean-diesel powered generators are quieter, cleaner, and far better suited for power generation over any other type. They can be used full or part-time.
INSTRUMENTATION & CONTROL
DynaGen controllers make using your generator easy. Place it to Automatic or manually turn your generator on and off with the push of one button. The display provides easy to read generator instrumentation. An event log keeps track of operation and can be set to alert you when it is time to change the oil.
The DynaGen "tough" series controllers are intended to operate even in harsh conditions, without fail. Simple two wire start makes them compatible with any standard transfer switch or remote starting system.
Aurora home generators use Yanmar or Perkins engines. Yanmar is a brand very well known in the marine and farming community. Perkins is a Caterpillar owned company and is the same engines they depend on for their equipment around the world.
All engines are very clean and meet both American and Canadian emission standards.
Diesel engines used by Aurora are able to run full or part-time with only an oil change every 500 hours of use.
Nothing is as reliable or fuel-efficient as a diesel-powered generator!
AURORA generators use full size industrial alternators. They produce clean regulated power that's safe for use with sensitive electronics. Alternators are brushless and maintenance free.
The 12 gallons/45-litre internal fuel tank is steel welded with a black powder coated finish. It has a 2” NPT vented fill cap for easy refuelling. The controller monitors your fuel level using the electronic gauge, and it also comes with a mechanical one, so you’ll never have to worry about running out of fuel.
Generators built on sturdy frames last longer. Our steel structures are powder coated to increase corrosion resistance and use vibration isolators to support the generator. By eliminating vibrations from being transferred to the ground, generators run quieter!
The frame is assembled using all stainless steel fasteners and also supports the battery tray and generator control panel.
Our weather resistant canopy enclosure is designed to be compact, durable and aesthetically pleasing while maintaining proper ventilation and noise reduction. Constructed with all stainless steel fasteners and finished with a powder coated paint. The large, lockable and removable hinged panels allow for easy access.
JUST TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT YOU GET:
Long Runtime Diesel-powered engines can work hard 24/7 for extended periods - up to 3 weeks if necessary - and still outlast any other type of engine for a fraction of the operating costs.
There's a reason the farming, transportation and construction industries have been leveraging the benefits offered by diesel generators for years.
New stringent emission regulations have produced clean diesel engine options that fit perfectly for home power generation. These strong, reliable long-life diesel engines have become today's preferred choice for home backup power.
Clean and Safe
Diesel fuel is a cleaner fuel that can be safely stored for long periods.
The higher the RPM, the louder the noise. Our diesel generators run in the 1800 RPM range, unlike non-diesel products that run at 3600.
You only need to change the oil and filter every 500 hours instead of every 100 hours for a non-diesel generator.
Diesel fuel is the least expensive to run, with natural gas and propane costing much more.
Diesel-powered generators seldom have any restrictions on use and can be used non-stop if needed. The warranty for natural gas, propane and gasoline-powered generators usually only covers emergency standby use.
