Product Description

Building on the fundamentals of proven reliability and efficiency established by the 3500 series, Caterpillar has once again revolutionized electric power with the introduction of the C175 family of diesel generator sets with ACERTTM Technology. This new family of generator sets combines high power density with efficient operation and low emissions. In a wide variety of prime and standby applications—commercial, institutional, industrial, utilities and more—the C175 family delivers cost-effective power in a small, highly versatile package, with the reliability, durability and performance you expect from Caterpillar.

With power capabilities of 2-4MW and a 127 ft2 (11.8 m2) footprint, the Cat® C175 family of diesel generator sets delivers more power in less space than any other high-speed generator set in the industry. The secret to huge benefits is in the design of the C175. Starting with proven Cat 3500 series components built for long, heavy-duty operation, Caterpillar developed the C175 family with the air intake system, fuel management and advanced electronics of ACERT Technology to boost power while improving overall efficiency and lowering emissions. The result is a generator set capable of delivering 2-4MW of power at 1,800 rpm and 2-4MVA of power at 1,500 rpm, all in a compact package. In three different sizes, the C175 family is well suited for all of today’s diverse power applications, delivering clean, reliable power wherever you need it.

The development of the C175 family didn’t end with groundbreaking design—Cat engineers went on to test the C175 family of diesel generator sets using years of electric power expertise, the latest technology and an integrated, proactive methodology. With more than 20 dedicated focus teams conducting standardized tests for component endurance, plus computer analysis and extensive lab testing, Caterpillar combined these results to identify potential weaknesses and make improvements long before introduction. Many of the C175 family advantages begin with the use of groundbreaking ACERT Technology, that combines advancements in electronics, air management and fuel delivery to improve engine response and fuel efficiency, plus lower NOx emissions.

KEY BENEFITS
Performance – Wider power ranges mean greater versatility for use in more applications: commercial, institutional, industrial, utilities, communications, government and more.

Lower installed costs – Higher power density (more output power from a given footprint), and a complete package that includes SR5 generators, Electronic Modular Control Panel (EMCP) 3 Package Controls and a radiator with flexible packaging options combined to deliver lower installed costs.

Lower operating and maintenance costs – An increase in oil change intervals, longer life of components, longer top-end as well as full-overhaul periods, and reduced fuel consumption result in lower operating and maintenance costs.

Improved serviceability – Every C175 component was designed with serviceability in mind, resulting in simple, robust components that makes servicing fast and easy. The entire engine is built with metric international hardware to facilitate use of common internationally available tools and hardware.

Proven reliability and durability – With a platform based on the industry-standard Cat 3500 series, the C175 is a family of diesel generator sets you can count on to last.

Systems integration – Your Cat dealer provides easy integration ofcontrols with other electric power products such as Automatic Transfer Switch, Uninterruptible Power Supply, Switchgear, Remote Monitoring and customer building SCADA systems.

Lower emissions – The C175 family of diesel generator sets uses ACERT Technology to meet or outperform emissions standards the world over.
