Westerbeke’s New Mutliport Low-CO Generator

September 2018 News

Westerbeke Corporation, well known for its small,  quiet, Innovation Award Winning low-CO gasoline generators introduces a new “multiport,” low-CO with the introduction of its 5.0 MCGA.  The 5.0 MCGA is field convertible and rated 5.0kW, 60Hz (4.2kW, 50Hz).  

This new MCGA model features sequential multiport electronic fuel injection (MPI).  MPI provides optimum fuel efficiency, easy starting, improved reliability and reduced emissions.  In conjunction with MPI, electronic speed control maintains the engine at a constant speed (precise frequency regulation) and virtually eliminates “bogging down” when load is applied.  A water-cooled return-less fuel system aids in the prevention of vapor lock for improved performance at high ambient temperatures.

The 5.0 MCGA features a 3-cylinder, heavy duty, industrial base engine for smooth operation; combined with a low operating speeds of 1800 RPM (60Hz) or 1500 RPM (50Hz), these features result in a longer lasting, more reliable product.  

The 5.0 MCGA is very compact as a result of Westerbeke’s unique marine design.  Noted for a particularly low-profile, the 5.0 MCGA is only 17.9” (456mm) tall.  

Safety warnings and shut-downs include over-speed, low oil pressure, high exhaust and coolant temperature and more.

Some options include two available exhaust outlet orientations, remote start-stop controls, remote lube oil filter, spare parts kits, and an auxiliary relay harness kit to draw DC power from the generator set.
