In response to data center customers' needs for assurance of total reliability and dependability, Cummins developed new ratings classification for data center power generation systems.
Data Center Continuous (DCC) rating offers diesel generator sets rated for unlimited hours of operation, with no restrictions on average variable load factor. DCC ratings will be applicable for any data center installation and have been reviewed and approved by the Uptime Institute. The Data Center Continuous ratings span the range of Cummins high horsepower diesel generator sets.
With DCC ratings, consultants and engineers can design with the confidence that Cummins generators can be applied up to the specified rating without restrictions on varying or non-varying loads or hours of operation. These ratings greatly simplify the engineering design process and make it easier for customers to achieve site certification from the Uptime Institute.
By combining DCC ratings with Cummins' diesel generators' time-tested ability to achieve 100% load acceptance in one step with best-in-class PowerCommand digital controls, data center customers can be confident they are purchasing power generation systems at the leading edge of reliability and dependability.
