Atlas Copco new QAS 600 generator is the largest model in the QAS range. Rated at 575 kVA at 60 Hz, the QAS 600 is powered by a Volvo TAD 1641 GE diesel engine and a 905 L standard fuel tank that ensures continuous operation at full load for a complete shift. With standard features that maximize safety and minimize environmental impact, the QAS 600 is designed for easy transportation and onsite handling, making it ideal for rental, industrial, public utility and construction applications where continuous power is needed.
The QAS 600 is housed in zinc plated steel with a powder coat finish that provides optimum resistance against corrosion. The housing also has been designed to reduce noise. The QAS 600 operates at 77 dB(A) at 60 Hz. The enclosure also features an integrated lifting structure that includes forklift slots, which facilitate safe and efficient handling, and an integrated bumper to protect against impact. The integrated lifting structure is positioned at the center point of gravity for correct balancing, and is designed to support at least four times the maximum weight without breaking.
Critical engine parameters such as oil temperature, oil pressure and coolant temperature are monitored by means of a failsafe system. Should a sensor or transducer fail, the system automatically shuts down to avoid any damage to the engine. Generator control, protection and monitoring are provided with the Qc1002 local or remote start digital control module. A standard feature, the system is ideal for all automatic controlled applications.
Standard features on the QAS 600 make preventative maintenance and repairs faster, easier and safer. Large access doors allow easy access to all service points and generator components. A dual-stage fuel filter with integrated water separator and a heavy duty dual-stage air filtration system ensure longer service intervals and increased engine life and up time. Options on the QAS 600 include a Qc4002 controller that is available for multi-start paralleling operations.
