Generator SetHomes and businesses have a new choice in standby power with all the design benefits you would expect from a global power leader like Cummins.

Cummins’ QuietConnect™ and PowerConnect™ generators run on natural gas or propane, providing reliable backup power and excellent fuel economy but little noise, the result of extensive testing in the Company’s state-of-the-art Acoustical Testing Center in Fridley, Minn.

“Cummins Power Generation is entering the residential and light commercial marketplace with new and innovative standby generators that feature our legendary product performance, quality and service, specifically designed for these segments,” said Cummins Vice President Tony Satterthwaite, President – Cummins Power Generation.

“Now it’s easier and more affordable than ever for homeowners and business owners to enjoy the peace of mind that reliable backup power from Cummins Power Generation can provide,” Satterthwaite added in unveiling the generators last month.

We listened to our customers’ demands for quiet, efficient power in the development of these generators with output ratings from 22kW to 60kW. Cummins conducted over 500 separate interviews before putting our engineers to work.

The super-quiet operation was achieved through advanced design and testing work at the Company’s industry-leading testing center. With its curved roof and sound-absorbing acoustical wedges lining the walls and ceiling, the distinctive looking testing center eliminates unwanted noise, leaving just the sound from the generator itself to be precisely measured.

The ability to pinpoint sources of noise in the generator helps Cummins design quieter products.

Cummins Power Generation is also launching the latest in transfer switches and remote monitoring devices for residential and business applications. The transfer switches ensure a safe and reliable transition from one power source to another while the monitoring devices allow for remote troubleshooting, delivering notifications via email or text.

The Connect series generators are powered by the reliable Cummins QSJ2.4 engine that has been specifically designed for this application. The generators are designed and tested to perform under extreme temperatures and high altitude applications, and feature a durable enclosure built to withstand winds up to 150 mph.

The new generators meet all U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emission regulations for emergency and stationary generators. For more information on the new Connect Series, go to
