Note the shaft that is not connected to anything. Motor/generator power supply usually doesn't have that. Looks like it could be a 2 bearing generator to me. Meter only goes to 50 amps, so output would be less than 12,000 watts at 240 VAC. About right for the size of it.

I agree with John! Also notice the ammeter appears to be marked at around 25 amps, therefore may be around 6kw, also see what appears to be 3 wire output leads, most likely 120/240 single phase, but would not rule out 3 phase.

I would do some serious insulation testing with a megger before spending any other time on the unit.

I would also save those Simpson meters, as they are the cadilliac of industrial meters, last forever if not mistreated of meters and the ammeter has a shunt associated with it so keep it with the meter.
