The BetaSet / Genset 4/2 is available as standard as:
- 2 Pole 230v 50Hz – 1 Phase operating @ 3,000 rpm or
- 2 Pole 120/240v 60Hz – 1 Phase operating @ 3,600 rpm.
All are available with either Heat Exchanger, Keel or Radiator Cooling.
We can supply most electrical voltages and frequencies between 120 – 240 volt single phase, additionally we can also build to bespoke individual specifications.
- The BetaSet / BetaGen 4/2 is suitable for use on seagoing vessels with valid maritime or safety certificate, recreational craft and inland waterways vessels including the Rhine (CCNR) because the engine falls below 19kW.
- For EPA compliance, all sets must be specially quoted for.

- A combined start/stop, alarm and protection module is supplied loose with 3 metres of connection cable. The module includes: engine start and stop push buttons, an hours run meter and indicators with shutdown on fault for either low lubricating oil pressure or high coolant temperature. On insulated system push buttons are replaced with a key switch and separate hour counter is supplied.
- The Mecc Alte marine rated “generator” operates at 0.8pf** and has a ventilated drip proof enclosure with IP 22 protection & single bearing construction. The generator is self-regulating, self-excited and is complete with terminal box and automatic voltage regulator. Suitable for operation in engine room temperatures of up to 45⁰C.
- Engine and generator are close coupled together and mounted on substantial steel feet with marine failsafe anti-vibration mountings to isolate the set from the vessels seating.
- Paint: The generating set is painted Beta Red for heat exchanger or Dark Brunswick Green for Keel cooled engines, the acoustic enclosures are off-white.
- Each generating set is “full load” tested in accordance with our quality document QA023.
- Tri-wall packed on a wooden base.
- Warranty: 12 months from date of commissioning or 18 months from date of despatch – whichever comes first and subject to the Warranty Terms and Conditions, section 17 within our General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
*For operation in ambient temperature of 45⁰C the output will be de-rated by 8%. Please contact Beta Marine for further information.
**The BetaSet-BetaGen 4/2 single phase is a unity power factor kVA = kW generator.
