The C17D5T generator set is a powerful addition to the Cummins Power Generation family of products, ideal for mobile telecommunications in fast-growing developing markets. The diesel-engine generator set features an integrated automatic transfer switch, a large fuel tank and long intervals between services, allied to a heavy-duty engine, and integral radiator cooling system. The C17D5T is well-suited to the needs of mobile operators reaching new subscribers in remote areas. The C17D5T generator set operates at 50 Hz and has single-phase and 3-phase ratings of 17 kVA standby, 15 kVA prime.
