New QAS 5 generators offer reduced noise and emissions footprintsPublished 25/3 at 12:15
Atlas Copco has launched the fifth generation of its flagship QAS generators range.
Developed in response to today’s operational challenges, the new QAS 5 models offer end users in the construction, events and industrial sectors quieter operations, a 20% smaller footprint than comparable models on the market, reduced engine emissions, faster plug and play paralleling, enhanced fuel economy, 24h autonomy and lower total cost of ownership. As a consequence, the QAS 5 range helps customers to improve their fleet utilisation and return on investment.
The QAS 5 range has been developed to provide generator users with a smooth transition towards the phased adoption of EU Stage V engine emission standards in 2019/20. The first five models in the range are new versions of the QAS 80, 100, 120, 150 and 200 generators. All include optimised Stage IIIA engines, a high capacity fuel tank and integrated variable speed drive (VSD) motor to power the cooling fan. These features, along with an integrated VSD motor, combine to provide users with an average 5% reduction in fuel consumption when compared to the industry average for equivalent models.
Atlas Copco’s QAS 5 range also capitalises on the benefits delivered by advanced digitalisation connectivity. For instance, by applying the optional FleetLink telematics system end users can realise maximum visibility of their assets location and performance, wherever the generators are in the world.
