Your needs are the spec
With a complete spectrum of power ratings from new, higher-efficiency engines, you get exactly the right power you need for your unique requirements — without compromise.
Robust configuration flexibility ensures that each Centum system will meet or exceed local emissions regulations without sacrificing performance.
Power flexibility, your new edge
Centum Series generators are engineered to meet your power needs and your budget — optimizing the specification process.
Centum efficiently delivers the power you need in a smaller footprint, lowering both installation and fuel costs. Every aspect of your Centum Series generator is a business advantage.
The Cummins commitment
The Centum Series represents much more than a new approach to power generation. It’s a new standard for the next 100 years of power.
You’ll also get the rock-solid dependability Cummins is known for, encompassing the design, build, install and service by Cummins expert engineers and technicians.
The Centum evolution begins
C1250D6E / C1500D6E generator sets are the first release in this groundbreaking new platform. This high-performance, high-power density system delivers the power you need in a smaller footprint, enhanced by innovative advantages and benefits like these:
Power Density and FlexibilitySuperior power efficiency in a smaller footprint, configured specifically for your application, to ensure you get the exact power you specify.
High Altitude/Ambient CapabilityCentum Series C1250D6E / C1500D6E generator sets deliver power dependably, even in hot and humid climates, high altitudes and aggressive environments.
ServiceabilityEvery component of the C1250D6E / C1500D6E is designed for easy service and backed by one of the most efficient distribution networks in the industry — owned, trained and operated directly by Cummins. Innovative design also reduces the costs of maintenance and replacement parts.
Transient PerformanceFast recovery from large load swings leads to less power disruption and a more stable power supply for consistent, predictable operations.
Tier 4 ComplianceCummins is the only standby generator set manufacturer capable of shipping a complete Tier 4-compliant solution directly from the factory. The T4 compliant aftertreatment solution was designed and is manufactured in-house, making Cummins the only standby generator set manufacturer capable of shipping a complete Tier 4-compliant solution directly from the factory.
Alternative FuelsAs part of the Cummins dual commitment to decarbonization and emissions reduction, the Centum Series C1250D6E / C1500D6E is approved for use with paraffinic fuels (EN15940), including hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), which offers the potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 40-90% over the total lifecycle of the generator set—without sacrificing performance.
Onboard DiagnosticsCummins maximizes uptime with advanced monitoring, diagnostics and predictive analytics, which no competitor can match.
