|Cummins Releases New Generators in QuietConnect Series|
New stand-by generator models, RS125 and RS150, for home and light commercial use are released in time for winter storm season and beyond
The new generators were designed to weather everything from biting winter storms to high-powered hurricanes. Both models are equipped to operate under extreme environmental conditions including cold weather starts well below 0°F and can withstand winds of up to 180 miles per hour when equipped with the necessary accessories. The generator can operate reliably in ambient temperatures up to 122°F, providing peace of mind to consumers worried about grid failure due to extreme heat. The generators are ideal for powering both homes and small businesses through prolonged power outages.
“Every year during winter storm season, hundreds of thousands –
sometimes millions – of people lose power, which, in many cases also
means heat,” said
The RS125 and RS150 are powered by the Cummins QSJ8.9G spark-ignited engine, an adaptation of the rugged and reliable QSL9 diesel engine which was engineered to power demanding commercial applications such as construction, agriculture, and mining equipment, as well as trucks. Gas-powered generators like these provide an advantage when diesel supplies may be interrupted by severe weather. For homeowners and small business owners, this means that they now have a more robust solution to support their power needs in the case of outages.
Both models use PowerCommand®2.3 electronic control, an industry-leading self-diagnostic system, designed to ensure service and preventative maintenance can be completed in a short period of time. Additionally, it allows users can put the generator into Flexible Exercise Mode, enabling the generator to exercise at a time, frequency and duration set by the customer, in as little as two minutes every six months.
Patented sound technology, coupled with an advanced and aesthetically pleasing housing design, make the QuietConnect among the quietest generators available on the market today. The RS125 and RS150 are backed by a 2-year limited warranty and supported by a nationwide dealer network of over 500 dealers specializing in installing and servicing generators for homes and small businesses, to provide additional peace of mind to consumers.
In addition to the QuietConnect models, the Connect Series also includes PowerConnect models to give consumers more choices depending on budget and backup power needs. To identify the correct product for your home or business, visit: https://homegenerators.cummins.com/generator-size-calculator
