Caterpillar Inc. has released the latest variant of the Cat® G3512, targeted for flexible applications, where a single unit is used for both standby and load management operations. The G3512 is engineered to meet a full suite of critical market standards including NFPA 110 Level 1 Type 10 compatibility, a UL 2200 listing, as well as NSPS Non-Emergency emissions requirements. Rated for continuous power at 750 kW or 1000 kW at 60 Hz, the generator set is suitable for the non-emergency emissions market in North America.
Ideal for load management and hybrid applications, the G3512 is appropriate for office buildings, data centers, retail complexes, schools, government buildings, universities, and research facilities.
With an updated package design, the G3512 is modeled after the diesel solution to minimize installation costs and commissioning time on-site. A high power density 12-cylinder engine offers market leading load acceptance and transient response. Designed for reliability, this engine is built on established 3500 technology and features a robust design with steel pistons and a protection monitoring system.
Featuring Caterpillar’s new EMCP 4.3 generator set controller, the G3512 easily integrates with building management systems. The expanded set of features also includes complete SR5 generators, gas train, package-mounted radiators and simplified wiring connections.
The G3512 is compatible with NFPA 110 Level 1 Type 10 applications, where backup power is required for mandatory building functions such as egress lighting, elevators, ventilation or data equipment, among others. The G3512 generator set starts and accepts power load in as quickly as 6.5 seconds, depending on conditions at the site.
