Man-Portable Generators

Portable generators are units designed  to be lifted into place by hand without the aid of machine power. They are typically configured in an open frame to allow easy access to lift points.


Open Frame Current Limiting 2k Generator


This open frame, heavy fuel generator set provides a full 2.0 kW military rated 28V DC power supply over the temperature range of -35° F to 95° F and is suitable for use to charge batteries. The generator control box provides voltage and current meters and an engine hour meter to monitor generator performance. The set is also equipped with a current limiting voltage regulator and NATO Slave Adapter for electric starting from either a vehicle or 24V battery pack. This unit allows the user to charge deep discharged batteries with a small powered generator and still maintain the useful life of the battery. Our current limiting regulator can be tailored for AGM, Li-Ion, and other battery chemistries. Based on our 2kW military heritage, this unit provides a simple power source that is lightweight yet highly reliable and easy to maintain.
