Perkins engines are produced with a large number of options. Most of the information you need is included in the engine’s name – as long as you know how to read it.
The letters and numbers that make up an engine’s model number are a series of codes to tell you the engine family, the number of cylinders, the emissions standard, the type of ignition, the capacity, the type of aspiration and the generator set rating.

Industrial Open Power Unit (IOPU), with variable speed, is normally sold with a radiator, cooling group and fan. It is a non-vehicle power unit, which often shares ratings with off-highway derivatives. Typical applications include pumps and compressors.
