Unique Genverter Technology

The Piccolo 6 generator is a combination of a diesel engine with integrated alternator and an inverter, hence the name Genverter. Key feature of this technology is the quality of the output combined with the surge power capability. Within a certain window of the rotating speed of the diesel engine, the PMG delivers the correct power quality to operate electrical equipment, such as tools, compressors, washing machines, air-conditioning, electrical cooking devices and various other AC appliances.

Ready to install
The Piccolo 6 diesel generator comes complete with all the fittings needed to connect the generator to the fuel tank, hoses needed to connect the engine to the cooling system, cables to connect the starter engine to the starter battery and electrical wiring to connect the Piccolo 6 to the on-board power system.

Why inverter technology

Devices such as air conditioning units and electric motors are often controlled by electronics to improve the efficiency and performance. Traditional generators may fail to operate these appliances. All Piccolo 6 models are equipped with a PMG module (Power Module Genverter©) to ensure that the voltage and frequency within the rotating speed range remain perfect so that all the equipment continues to run without interruption. Surge power is generated by the PMG to start up inductive loads.

Stage V Certified, low emission indirect water-cooled engine

Only the best 2 cylinder engines are applied: long lasting, reliable, silent engines, complying with EPA /Tier 4 (USA standard) and Stage V (European standard). The engine and PM alternator back-end are connected into one cooling circuit and kept on a constant temperature via a heat exchanger.

Quiet & vibration free

Vibrations are just as irritating as an over noisy diesel engine. The customized shock mounts, combined with the sound enclosure, result in a super silent and virtually vibration free set-up. All parts needed to be serviced are located at one side of the Genverter. The effective engine mounting inside the enclosure result in a audible noise level of less than 60 dBA and virtually no vibration.
