Default 30RZ262 - Needs Identity

Recently acquired a 30rz262 30kw generator with 1091 hrs, am looking for tech specs, manuals, schematics, essentially anything to help get to know the unit and service when required, have searched the web and oddly very little data available even local distributor has few details.

Thanks.

It's got to be an FR-II unit at minimum, which means it's a DEC-III controller of some flavor.

You can contact a distributor for manuals, just be sure to have the model and spec number when you do.

Have not yet picked it up, Friday or Monday depending on weather so I have no idea what the controls looks like, as for manuals the distributor I spoke with didnt seem to optimistic I would be able to get anything of use due to age.

How old is this thing anyway?

I have included pics, hopefully these will help answer some questions.

Thank you.

You'll have to remove the doors so we can see the controller.

I'm sure it'a a DEC-III based on the model number and nameplate.

Post pictures of the controller and post an email. I have some good manuals if it is a DEC III.

Well that is a Decision Maker 3 controller (maybe 3+, but I am going to guess 3 given the color scheme and older style cooling vents on the generator end).

Here are some links to relevent or close to relevent (for the diesel powered cousins) manuals (note this web site will be going down after Jan 1, so grab them while you can)
