The MEP-016B unit is a 3kW continuous-run diesel generator powered by a single cylinder air-cooled Onan engine. It operates at 3600 RPM to help save on weight and size. These units can easily run between 3,000 and 5,000 hours before a rebuild is needed. The MEP-701A unit is the same as the MEP-016B unit, but with an Acoustic Suppression Kit (ASK). Note that the MEP-016E is a Yanmar-powered version of the Onan-powered MEP-016B unit.
