Designed by Evopower. Powered by Cummins. Controlled by Deep Sea Electronics.
The Evopower UKC480ECO is powered by a Cummins 6ZTAA13-G2 fitted, for standby use it has a maximum power of 480kVA or 385kW, it is also a prime or constant power unit that offers 438kVA 350kW. Standby (ESP) and Prime Power (PPR) ratings are defined within ISO8528. Using a high-quality LK544B brushless alternator is self-excited and includes an AVR (automatic voltage regulator) to prevent voltage drop due to increased loads.
Coming with a heavy-duty weatherproof canopy enclosure that is rustproof, powder-coated, and fitted with quality sound attenuation. The noise level is only 70 dB at a 7-meter distance. There are also stainless steel fittings are used for all door hinges and locks.
Designed in the UK, using Evopower’s vast experience building power equipment. All of the ECO series generators are much more than an engine and alternator, using high-quality components in all of their gensets such as DSE (Deep Sea Electronics) control panels, Varta batteries, CHiNT 4 pole MCCB breakers, industrial-grade silencers, Cummins engines also Genpower custom alternator.
The Evopower UKC480ECO 480kVA Cummins powered diesel generator has an integral base mounted bunded fuel tank which holds 1190 liters of diesel and you can also use red diesel to reduce cost. You will get 13 hrs runtime at 100% load, 27 hrs at 50% (based on prime power rating). The fuel cap is lockable and filters are in an easy-access place within the canopy.
Mounted on a heavy-duty skid with forklift slots, also comes with easy unloading/moving and hook eyes to help keep the machine stable while transporting or lifting into position. The Evopower ECO range offer as a standard both a battery charger and cooler heater as standard.
Powered by Cummins 6ZTAA13-G2 Industrial engine.
The Evopower UKC480ECO generator is powered by a well-known and world-class Cummins engine that is turbocharged, charge air-cooled, and has an intercooler. It runs at 1500RPM to prolong lifespan and maintain 50Hz.
The Cummins 6ZTAA13G2 diesel engine has 6-cylinders in-line and is a 13-liter direct injection that uses high-quality components throughout the build like Fleetwood filters. Using 45.42 liters of SAE 15W/40 as engine oil is what is recommend and also using a 50/50 mix for the coolant/radiator fluid of 50% water and 50% ethylene glycol (anti-freeze).
Unlike more traditional mechanical governors that can’t be adjusted the Evopower features an electronic governor that regulates the fuel being pumped into the engine, it can adjust the fuel intake quickly as the load is applied to keep the rpm steady at 1500RPM and at 50hz, this, in turn, to help prevent any damage to sensitive electronic equipment you may have.
Controlled by the DSE 6120 MKIII control panel.
The entire Evopower ECO range of diesel generators uses a Deep Sea Electronics 6120 MKIII control panel. Deep Sea Electronics (DSE). Going back to 1975 DSE has been making generator control panels, auto transfer switches and battery chargers so you know you are in good hands when DSE are featured within your generator. The DSE6120 control panel in this genset is manufactured within the UK. With an easy-to-read LED display and ATS compatibility as standard meaning that this generator can start/stop automatically once connected to ATS panel. This gives you peace of mind that in an emergency situation you will not be without power for more than a minute or so. We advise when looking at generators as a backup power solution an ATS panel (automatic transfer switch), it connects to the consumer unit the property, and the generator, it constantly looks for power coming from the grid, once it knows the power from the grid has gone it will turn the generator on. The starting and stopping of the generator will take around 1min. Once power from the grid is restored it turns the generator off back to standby mode. If you need help with an ATS panel please get in touch.
The DSE control panel has a built-in USB port, you can program and customise the parameters and modules via a PC once you have downloaded the relevant software from Deep Sea Electronics website. This can also be done directly from the control panel itself via buttons.
The control panel has many built-in features and will notify you with alerts such as.
- low oil pressure - which can lead to a lack of lubrication and engine damage,
- high water temperature - which could be a sign that the radiator airflow is blocked or the water level is low.
- high or low voltage detected - which could signify a problem with the alternator, AVR, or degrading electrical connections and lead to your equipment being damaged.
- High or low frequency or engine over/underspeed - which could signify an issue with the fuel regulation/governor and leads to unstable frequency output.
- There are also built-in features such as start/stop issues and more.
