Kohler Revamps Marine Generator Line

Published in the March 2014 Issue March 2014 News

Kohler Power Systems, a manufacturer of diesel and gasoline marine generators from 4 to 500kW for a wide range of pleasure and commercial craft applications, has introduced updated emissions-compliant diesel generators, ranging from 40 to 99 kW for 60 Hz and 33 to 80 kW for 50 Hz. The new models are smaller and quieter and include a newly designed KOHLER Decision-Maker 3500 (DEC 3500) controller equipped with paralleling software and load-management software—allowing for automatic paralleling of two generators without the cost and extra footprint of switchgear.

“While load requirements have increased due to advanced electronics equipment, onboard space is still at a premium,” said Frank Formas, engineer at Kohler Power Systems. “Our new paralleling controller matches power capacity with load needs to eliminate under-loading and over-fueling, while conserving space, decreasing fuel costs and reducing equipment maintenance.” (www.kohlerpower.com/marine)
