Cummins Onan generators are known worldwide for low-noise, low-vibration units. These qualities are the result of extensive noise, vibration and product testing.
Cummins Onan uses the world’s largest sound cell, a 13,000-square-foot hemi-anechoic chamber equipped with specially soundproofed walls that prevent sound reflection. Eliminating all sound reflection (echo) allows more accurate measurement of the sound quality and decibel level from the test source.
Cummins Onan carries out supplementary testing of its generators, including:
- Extensive structural tests for more robust brackets
- Resonance/fatigue tests to ensure long term structural integrity
- Impact tests on packaging so generators arrive intact—even in harsh shipping conditions
- Rough seas and harsh road condition simulation tests guarantee long product life
The result of this effective testing is a high quality and reliable generator that is known globally for low noise and minimal vibration.
