Building on its comprehensive Stage V power offering, Perkins has added the 2806J-E18TAG1 ElectropaK engine to its power generation line. The new unit delivers a powerful package with easy integration for electric power sector needs.

The 2806J provides strong load acceptance in a wide range of applications. It can be used as a stationary prime source of power or as a mobile unit for the rental sector, and performs seamlessly in producing dependable power for everything from job sites to critical installations.

"Reliable electric power is not an option, it's a fundamental need to keep operations running, whether that's for standby when the mains power fails or to meet onsite prime power requirements," says Jaz Gill, Vice President of Global Sales, Marketing, Service and Parts. "Our engines are engineered and expertly crafted to provide reliable, stable, and sustainable power for our customers, with the new 2806J being the latest in a long line of products that also deliver a low total cost of ownership."

For generator manufacturers and end users looking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the 2806J can run biodiesel up to B20 based on a 20 percent dilution of biodiesel with standard diesel, or on 100 percent hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), subject to the fuel meeting Perkins' fuel specifications.

The new 18-litre engine produces up to 610 kVA at 50 Hz and is switchable to 60 Hz, delivering up to 625 kVA.

The ElectropaK features the latest electronics with a single, on-engine electronic control module (ECM) that simplifies wiring harnesses, eases installation, supports future diagnostics, and is fully capable of integration with customers' telematics solutions. The ECM also manages all aspects of aftertreatment operation and regeneration without operator input. Regeneration occurs automatically with no impact on performance, maximizing uptime.

Additionally, Perkins offers a growing portfolio of connectivity solutions that can help promote the optimal performance of diesel engines. Connected engine capabilities deliver insights through a customizable dashboard of performance, fuel and oil consumption, and other vital engine data points that assist in maximizing the uptime of Perkins-powered equipment.

These connectivity offerings are integrated with maintenance and service capabilities from the Perkins global distributor network to prompt the proactive diagnosis and resolution of engine issues, helping technicians provide solutions and minimize downtime and repair expenses.
