MEP531A 2kW Military Diesel Generator

$5,250.00 $1,999.00

Since 1996 Dewey Electronics has been manufacturing and supplying the standard 2kW Military Tactical Generator to the US Department of Defense’s PM-Mobile Electric Power (PM-MEP).  This is the sipper of all sippers that we offer at GMG and only consumes .333 gallons per hour at 75% load.  This is also the most portable of all of GMG units, weighing in at 152 pounds (full of fuel).  The MEP-531A generator utilizes a current Yanmar air-cooled engine. Parts are readily available.  These units are excellent for extreme portability and fuel conservation.  They are desirable for truck-mounted systems, very remote off-grid living, or home-standby if space is a major concern.

These compact, portable, highly reliable, lightweight units are available with either 120V AC or 28V DC output and have established themselves as the mainstay of portable power for military applications worldwide. Their open frame configuration allows them to be easily lifted, stacked, or transported by any military vehicle. This open configuration contributes to the ease of maintenance for which these units are noted.

Equipped with a manual recoil starter and the ability to be electrically started from their NATO Slave Connector, these units are used throughout the military where pure military power is a requirement or when portability is a necessity.

    How to Use This Manual
    This manual contains operator and field maintenance instructions for the 2 kW Military Tactical Generator Sets.

    NOTE
    Throughout the family of manuals, directional orientation in relation to the equipment is described from the point of view of the operator facing the operator’ scontrols looking out over the equipment. From this perspective, the end of the equipment containing the operator’ scontrols will be referred to as the rear.

    This manual provides operating procedures, troubleshooting, maintenance, and supporting information required to operate and maintain the generator sets. Listed below are some of the features included in this TM to help locate and use the provided information.
    WORK PACKAGES
    This TM has been organized using the WP format. Each chapter contains a series of WPs rather than sections and paragraphs. Each WP is designed to stand alone as a complete information module; if the user keeps the section(s) of this TM in a loose-leaf binder, the user will be able to remove just the WP needed to complete a specific task. Here are some WP features of which the user should be aware.
    Each WP is numbered using a four-digit number beginning with WP 0001. WPs are numbered sequentially throughout the TM (ex. WP 0016. WP 0020. etc.). The Table of Contents lists each chapter and WP title as well as all figures and tables contained within each. Figures and tables are numbered sequentially for each WP.
    The WP number is located at the top right of each page. It is also located at the bottom of the page with the WP page number included (0001-1 would be page 1 of the General Information WP (WP 0001, General Information)).
    Each WP starts on a right-hand page. This is done so the user can remove a single WP from the paper TM if needed for a task. Blank pages are assigned a number, but it appears on the preceding or following page. For example. if page 0001-10 of a WP is blank. page 0001-9 will have the number 0001-9/10 blank; or if page 0001-1 of a WP is blank, page 0001-2 will have the number 0001-1 blank/2.
    Each WP containing step-by-step maintenance or troubleshooting procedures will end with the words END OF TASK, and each WP ends with the statement END OF WORK PACKAGE. Think of each WP as a small, standalone TM.
    Typographical conventions are as follows: [Unload] indicates a soft key or a switch.
    [Previous] + [Next] indicates two simultaneous key presses. [ + ] [ – ] indicates two sequential key presses.
    References to equipment Data and Description Plates are printed as they appear on the equipment whenever possible.
    Warnings, Cautions and Notes Definitions
    Warnings, cautions, notes. chapter titles, and paragraph headings are printed in bold type. Icons related to warnings are shown directly above the warning text.
    The following definitions apply to WARNINGS, CAUTIONS and NOTES found throughout this publication. Warning, cautions and notes provide supplemental information. Personnel must understand and apply these Warnings, Cautions and Notes during many phases of operation and maintenance to ensure personnel safety and health and the protection of property. Portions of this information may be repeated in certain chapters of this publication for emphasis.
    WARNING
    A warning identifies a clear danger to the person doing that procedure.

    CAUTION
    A caution identifies risk of damage to the equipment.
