Microgen’s engines are developed in a way that even under the most harsh conditions they deliver what you expect.
In 2010 Microgen brought a 50 Hz 1 kW electrical Stirling engine to the market.
Together they have logged between 170 and 200 million run hours.
Over the years numerous improvements have been implemented; in 2016 a 60 Hz version became commercially available.
The base specifications of the two engines are
Maximum (modulating) electrical output: 1050 watt
Characteristics of electrical output: nominal 230 volt, min 186 - max 264 v
Frequency: 50 HZ or 60 HZ
Weight without burner: 49 kg
Dimensions without burner: 450 mm in height and 300 mm in diameter
Noise at 1 meter without casing: 52.5 dB and with standard casing 45 dB
Engine efficiency: 26%
Design life: 50,000 hours
Hermetically sealed: maintenance-free
