Atlas Copco: QAS 200

Atlas Copco Power Technique has rounded out its generator lineup with a new version of the QAS 150 and the addition of the QAS 200. 

The compact and high-performing generators are built with the same characteristics as the rest of the QAS lineup. This includes fuel efficiency, a corrosion-resistant canopy, simplified service, portability and parallelling capabilities. 

“The new models are fully in line with the spec and performance of the QAS range of generators, designed and built to fully meet the requirements of the most demanding mobile applications in the harshest conditions,” said Angel Nieto, product manager for generators and light towers at Atlas Copco.

“Features like the standard voltage switch, which allows you to switch to a new voltage within seconds, are highly appreciated by our rental customers.”

Suitable for a wide range of applications including construction, mining, disaster recovery and general rental, the generators feature a John Deere 6068 Tier 4 Final diesel engine. 

The QAS 150 offers a power rating of 120 kW of prime power, while the QAS 200 delivers 160 kW. The two models are also dual frequency capable. 

AREP alternator

An AREP alternator excitation system offers quick and easy motor starting capabilities. Even in tough applications and weather, the operator has stable power in less than six seconds, according to Atlas Copco.  

Both generators are equipped with a 1,268 litre fuel tank.

The large, fuel efficient tank allows the QAS 150 to run for about 37 hours at 100 per cent load and 44 hours at 75 per cent load. The QAS 200 runs for about 28 hours at 100 per cent load or 37 hours at 75 per cent load. 

With an industry-leading compactness, operators are able to get more generators per truckload. 

As well, the QAS generators have a heavy-duty weatherproof and corrosion resistant canopy. This includes an integrated door sealing system ensuring water-tightness and improved sound attenuation. 

The standard variable speed fan delivers lower noise levels, reduced fuel consumption and improves performance in cold environments.

Available in either a skid mount or trailer mounted configuration, the QAS 150 and QAS 200 are designed for safe and easy movement. 

The QAS line requires less than two hours of service for every 500-hour service interval. 

Wire routing in QAS cubicles is neat, service friendly and allows for easy access through large access doors and panels. An environmentally friendly spillage-free frame is also standard.  

To prolong their lifespan, the generators feature triple stage air filtration with a safety cartridge and dual stage fuel filtration. 

As an available option, these generators can be linked in parallel with Atlas Copco’s Power Management System (PMS) parallel controller. This includes a intuitive and easy to use touchscreen display. 

The PMS controller manages the quantity of generators running in parallel with load demand, starting and stopping units in line with increases or decreases in load. This makes the units more fuel efficient and expands the life of the generator. 

The controls also feature advanced warning and alert parameters.
