Your Quick Guide To Defence Generators

What would you do if the power went out? What effect would it have on your military operations? Would it hinder communication? Could it prevent mission success? Could it cost lives? With power supply being imperative to military applications, ensuring power is always on is of the utmost importance. Defence generators are one of the most reliable ways to ensure this, and therefore, in this blog, we discuss what defence generators are, how they differ from other generator types, and go through some popular examples from our range. And if you’d like any help with finding a suitable generator, the team here at Dale Power Solutions would be only too happy to help.

What Are Defence Generators?

Available as field hospital generators, military camp generators, communications vehicle generators or as generators that comply with particular military requirements, defence generators are those that aid the army, navy and air force. Especially designed for extreme environments and emergency situations, defence generators can provide emergency power when the military needs it the most. Ensuring power continuity and therefore the prevention of power failure and power outages, defence generators provide peace of mind to those that depend on them, allowing them to focus on more pressing matters.

How Do Defence Generators Differ From Other Types?

Defence generators differ from other types of generators in various ways, such as:

  • They must comply with MIL-STD 461F, DEF STAN 59-41 and DEF STAN 59-411 among other industry requirements.
  • They can tolerate vastly different temperatures and operating environments, and for extended periods of time.
  • They can go months without maintenance, even if they are continually running.
  • They can withstand strong vibrations and shock.
  • They can support high voltages and lower input signals.
  • They meet military noise standards, with high levels of soundproofing.

Defence generators can withstand harsh terrains, protect against power strikes and ensure that power supply is always provided. Aiding military missions, ensuring crisp communication and data transfer, military generators can truly make or break the team they are serving.

Our Range Of Defence Generators

At Dale Power Solutions, we have an extensive range of defence generators and military generators that can be used for applications including field hospitals, military camps, communications vehicles and other key military sites and operations. Supporting your team during mission-critical endeavours and ensuring they’re always in reach, your defence generator will become an important part of your operations.

A diesel generator from our industrial range is ideally suited for military applications, with their robust and compact structure, ease of transport and soundproofing capabilities. Within this diesel generator range, we can supply, install and manage both 50 Hz generators and 60 Hz generators, as well as single phase generators and three phase generators.

  • Diesel generator
  • 1.500 and 1.800 r.p.m options available
  • STANDARD VOLTAGE: 400/230 V / 480/277 V
  • RATED AT POWER FACTOR: 0,8 Cos Phi
  • The DSE8610 control panel monitors the generator and indicates operational status and fault conditions, automatically starting or stopping the engine on load demand or fault condition
  • A range of integrated alarms, including everything from overload, unbalanced voltage, over voltage and under voltage through to over frequency, under frequency, inverse power and emergency stop

The HRTW-1300 D5/6

  • Powered by MITSUBISHI
  • Alternator: Self-excited and self-regulated; IP23 protection degree; Insulation H class
  • Three phase generator
