DC power units customize for many needs

Gurnee, Ill, April 11, 2011—Sometimes a little extra power is all it takes to make a job easier or life more comfortable.  Customizable to fit unique applications, Next Generation Power's DC Power Units come in 12, 24 and 48V configurations.  The heart of these little workhorses is a Kubota diesel engine, available in 2-cylinder/12 hp or 3-cylinder/18 hp models, that helps deliver the extra juice when needed.

These dependable power units rapidly charge batteries during peak demand times and are especially efficient at regenerating large battery banks.  They run at a mid-speed 2,800 rpm and use an advanced, self-tensioning belt to minimize vibration and wear and tear.

Applications are numerous for the DC Power Units, whether on the jobsite or in remote living conditions.  They offer utility vehicles inexpensive alternatives to idling the main engine for battery charging or inverter power.  The fuel-efficient Kubota units can help run hydraulic liftgates, ramps or a wide array of other auxiliary equipment.

For those living off-the-grid, they're a powerful backup for charging battery banks when primary wind or solar power resources are low.  The DC Power Units can also automatically kick in during peak load times.  They're equally suited for RVs that don't have a large AC generator.

The DC Power Units measure approximately 24" L x 20" W x 22" H and weigh around 250 lbs.  These versatile units are offered with options such as a remote or mounted radiator and extended sump oil pans.  An automatic start/stop panel, safety shutdown, and oil pressure and water temperature gauges all come standard.
