Aurora Standby Generators

Small footprint, big power. Many of our customers want to power their homes during an outage but don't need to use heavy appliances until power is restored. This generator does just that and has enough reserve should you wish to use some heavy devices it is possible with some basic power conservation.

This Aurora diesel generator is powered by a compact Perkins, liquid cooled, three-cylinder engine. It offers the same long life and durability we have come to expect from larger standby generators. We used the best controller, alternator, battery, muffler, stainless steel hardware, wires, insulation and electrical component we could. We made it so tough and told our customers all the great things about it. They then asked us, “why is it still just a one year warranty?” That’s when we decided to eliminate all possible objections and double it. Today, our warranty is more than double what any other generator company has for the same class generator, its FIVE years!

There is no longer lasting gasoline, natural gas or propane generator that can compare. When you compare fuel and replacement costs of running a diesel generator to other types of generators, diesel is the least expensive and the most reliable option.

Maintenance and Exercise Clock - It is easy to lose track of how long your generator has been running without it. The maintenance clock keeps track of your runtime and is set to remind you when it is time to do an oil change. The exercise clock is also programmable as is the low battery voltage detection that can also trigger an exercise cycle if desired.

Engine Specifications

This generator uses a Powerful 3 cylinder diesel engine from Perkins. While it is small and compact, it offers exceptional performance and long life.  Perkins engines are Radiator Liquid Cooled and can operate full or part-time.  Perkins engines require less oil, air, and fuel filter changes (every 500 hours depending on load factor). The low fuel consumption and ultra-compact engine offer all the customer benefits experienced from larger engine sizes. The engine has a proven record and has been in use worldwide for many years in providing power for homes, business and construction equipment.

Coolant Temperature Sending Unit

Engines normally use an engine coolant temperature switch and oil pressure switch.  They only turn on or off when there is a fault and do not let you read actual engine temperature. We feel it is important to know how hot the engine is running and detect an issue before it becomes necessary to shut down the engine.  For this reason, we include an additional sensor to monitor the coolant temperature so that if it ever reaches a warning level it will notify you and log the condition.  If a critical level is reached the generator controller will shut down the generator.  For added protection the generator controller is additionally set to log four set points. High and Low warning levels and failure levels. 


Coolant Level Sensor

Aurora Generators are equipped with this additional sensor in the radiator to eliminate low coolant level. It is engineered from high quality corrosion-resistant materials to accurately and reliably alert the generator controller to low coolant level and shut down the generator. Engine temperature sending units/sensors alone are supposed to detect overheating. However, if coolant level is low,  temperature sending units/sensor's cannot measure the coolant temperature. When coolant level in an engine is low, the cooling system cannot adequately remove excess heat from the engine. 


Aurora industrial class alternators are highly reliable and produce clean, stable power even in harsh conditions. Automatic Voltage Regulated to 0.5% precision. The alternator is brushless and requires no maintenance. The generator head is directly driven by a heavy engine flywheel. The large rotating mass helps to reduce fluctuations in power when heavy loads are applied.

    Fuel Tank Options

    Integrated aluminum 45L/12G fuel tank helps to simplify installation and reduce generator footprint. Fuel tank uses a mechanical fuel gauge for quick checks between usage and a second electronic gauge. The electronic gauge is monitored, and fuel levels are displayed by the generator controller. If the fuel level is low and/or a safety shutdown occurs before the tank is empty, the display will show you. This feature helps reduce downtime by preventing the fuel tank from running dry.

    This generator is available with a few different fuel tank options.

    • A small internal 45 Litre ( 12 gals US ) INCLUDED
    • 450Litre/100 Gallon Sub Base Fuel Tank  
    • 450Litre/100 Gallon Standalone Double Wall Fuel Tank UL
