At­las Copco beefs up power with the QAS 630 gen­er­a­tor

Earthmovers & Excavators - - News -

The new At­las Copco QAS 630 gen­er­a­tor has ex­tended the QAS se­ries power range to 630kVA with no in­crease in size.

By in­cor­po­rat­ing the com­pact frame of the QAS 500, the QAS 630 can gen­er­ate 20 per cent more power with­out need­ing a larger foot­print, the com­pany says. The ex­panded QAS gen­er­a­tor se­ries now runs from 14 to 630 kVA.

“Since we in­tro­duced the new QAS line in 2007, we al­ways in­tended for the com­plete range to go up to 630kVA,” At­las Copco prod­uct mar­ket­ing man­ager Julio Tome says.

“Now we have achieved that mile­stone in the most in­no­va­tive way – by fit­ting the new model into the frame of the ex­ist­ing QAS 500.

“The guid­ing de­sign prin­ci­ple of the range was to be mod­u­lar, com­pact and ro­bust, which are im­por­tant fea­tures for the rental sec­tor.”

Fea­tures of the QAS 630 gen­er­a­tor in­clude a rugged gal­vanised en­clo­sure, a spillage-free frame and fork­lift slots

The QAS 630 is rated at 500kW at 50Hz prime power and comes in a Stage II emis­sion vari­ant.

“The stan­dard fuel tank has a ca­pac­ity of over 900 litres and can pro­vide power for a full work shift at full load,” At­las Copco says. “An op­tional long-au­ton­omy fuel tank can ex­tend the run­ning time up to 24 hours, depend­ing on load re­quire­ments.”

On the ser­vice­abil­ity side, the QAS 630 has large doors and re­mov­able ser­vice plates for eas­ier ac­ces­si­bil­ity and quick main­te­nance. Ser­vice in­ter­vals have been length­ened through the use of heavy-duty fil­tra­tion sys­tems.

Fea­tures of the unit’s plug-and-play Qc4003 con­troller in­clude the abil­ity to re­motely start and pro­gram the ma­chine, as well as data anal­y­sis ca­pa­bil­ity.

A power man­age­ment sys­tem en­ables the op­ti­mi­sa­tion of fuel con­sump­tion and ex­pands the life­time of the gen­er­a­tors when they are work­ing in par­al­lel to form a mo­bile or in­de­pen­dent power plant, At­las Copco says.
