Model ranges
The model ranges most commonly offered in Zambia are based on three different manufacturers of engines. Mitsubishi engines are used on generator models T12, T16 and T22kVA as well as on the large generators from 1,400 to 2,200kVA. John Deere engines are used on generator models J33, J44, J66, J88, J110, J130, J165, J200, J220, J275, J300 and J400kVA. Volvo engines are used on generator models V220 up V700kVA.

Sound proof canopies
SDMO is known for manufacturing excellent canopies with unique anti-rust treatment on all metalwork before powder coating takes place.

Models up to 110kVA are usually fitted with the Nexus control panel, giving digital readouts of important generator parameters on an LCD screen. Larger models use the Telys control panel, allowing the user more inputs on generator parameters, setups, software download and diagnostics

For backup applications, SDMO generators are supplied with an ATS, nowadays mostly of the motorized switch type, while certain models retain the contactor type of change-over. Generator parameters such as amps, volts and frequency per phase can be read on the digital display, with push button selection of manual versus automatic operation.
