Cummins Power Generation’s Data Center Continuous (DCC) rating offers diesel generator sets rated for unlimited hours of operation, with no restrictions on average variable load factor. DCC ratings will be applicable for any data center installation where a reliable utility exists. The Data Center Continuous ratings span the range of Cummins Power Generation’s high-horsepower diesel generator sets, from 1 to 2.5 MW, and will apply to both 50 and 60 Hz configurations. This introduction is part of Cummins’ overall focus on data center innovation, marshalling a team of global experts and lifecycle support resources specifically for its data center customers. Cummins DCC ratings can be applied up to the specified rating without restrictions on varying or nonvarying loads or hours of operation. The new ratings are in addition to the current emergency standby and prime power ratings.
