The VIMTEC MBE 1500 will get a new diesel generator from Fischer Panda. The company is known worldwide for the development and manufacturing of compact and sound-insulated diesel-generators that produce an electrical power source for boat and vehicles.
We set great value upon a power source for the VIMTEC MBE 1500 with high performance and a low consumption at the same time. The generator should also require as little maintenance as possible. With the current generator and a fuel tank holding 200 liters of diesel, the VIMTEC MBE 1500 can easily run for 120 days in hybrid mode. The engine can work up to 250 operating hours without an oil change. In comparison, a standard power generator requires such maintenance after only 50 operating hours.
Hence, our MBE is powered by one of the most advanced models on the market. But in terms of noise reduction there is still room for improvement.
The new diesel generator is even more powerful and efficient which accelerated charging of the batteries and therefore reduction of the operation time of the engine. The water cooling system allows a more compact setup and provides additional soundproofing. Especially the operation of the VIMTEC MBE 1500 in urban environments requires a lower operation volume. Currently the MBE has a sound pressure level of 50 dB, which is comparable with a normal conversation (measured at 7 m distance and 1.8 m height on open grounds). With the new generator the operating noise of the MBE can be decreased further.
