Tier 3 Diesel Marine Generators from Kohler – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 06, 2017
South Shore Generators Kohler Decision Maker 3500

Kohler Power Systems offers a wide range of pleasure and commercial craft applications and also has available single- and three-phase Tier 3 marine diesel generators. They integrate Kohler diesel Tier 3 engines and other enhancements, including improved sound shields and Kohler’s highly regarded Decision-Maker 3500 controller (DEC 3500).

These generators are always evolving to meet the diverse and dynamic needs of today’s boat builders and pleasure craft owners alike. These models reduce sound levels with an air induction silencer while also delivering the performance and peace-of-mind that comes with our Kohler Tier 3 diesel engines.

In addition to enhanced sound-dampening and engine reliability, users of these models will also benefit from the ability to quickly and easily parallel two or more Kohler generators with a single communication wire, which is delivered through the company’s exclusive DEC 3500 controller.

The DEC 3500 controller’s space-saving design eliminates the need for oversized switchgear among other benefits, including: built-in load management software, which removes over-fueling issues and the need for exhaust treatment systems; remote monitoring, which provides the ability to monitor and control the generator from anywhere on the vessel; fully potted circuit boards and sealed connectors, which protect against corrosion; and fewer failure points for superior dependability.

Mobile Paralleling Box Combines Different Generators and Fuel Types to Meet Job Requirements – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, August 22, 2016

Technology offers ability to combine different sized generators; generators with different fuels

Kohler Power Systems has a Mobile Paralleling Box, which delivers cutting-edge flexibility by allowing users to combine different sized generators with different fuel types. The paralleling box is specifically designed for use with Kohler’s gaseous and diesel mobile generator line.

The technology was launched during the 2015 PGA Championship. This product will bring unmatched flexibility and a new level of customization to a wide variety of applications – including large scale, world-renowned events like the PGA golf tournament.

Mix and Match

The Mobile Paralleling Box, along with a fleet of Kohler generators, allows users to mix and match different size generators to meet job requirements. Four of the new boxes can be used to parallel as many as eight generators. The Kohler Decision-Maker 3500 digital controller, which is standard on all Kohler gaseous and Tier 4 Final diesel mobile generators, provides the paralleling intelligence and network communications for remote monitoring.

Any Kohler mobile generator with the Decision-Maker 3500 digital controller will work with the Mobile Paralleling Box.

The digital controller along with the Mobile Paralleling Box makes it possible to parallel generators for applications such as using multiple smaller units to replace a larger generator, providing redundancy to a primary generator in support of critical loads, meeting system capacity demands when one generator is inadequate, or managing generators to be sequenced on or off in a predetermined order based on system output.

One Size Fits All

The new system uses contactors to connect to the bus and eliminates the need for installing or investing in motorized breakers on generators that may never be used in a parallel application. Each contactor is rated at 1,000 amps – different sized generators can parallel as long as each unit’s output is less than 1,000 amps.

The advantage of the paralleling system is that it removes the need to size circuit breakers to specific generator output.

Color-coded camlocks for input and output feeds make the new box easy to setup and maintain while unused camlock connectors are protected with lockable security bars. The system also includes two 25-foot control cables as well as lockable storage for control cables. During the PGA Championship, the Mobile Paralleling Box was used to provide power redundancy for Kohler Co. hospitality tents. A Kohler 175REOZT4 Tier 4 Final diesel unit was used as the primary power source and a Kohler 125REZGT – an EPA-certified gaseous unit that runs on LP – served as a secondary power source.

Advanced Digital Controller

Paralleling intelligence is incorporated into the Kohler Decision-Maker 3500 digital controller, which provides system monitoring and diagnostics while also offering a user-friendly display. The advanced digital controller uses a patented hybrid voltage regulator and unique software logic to manage alternator thermal overload protection features that normally require additional hardware.

Paralleling functions featured on the controller include:

  • Bus sensing for accurate metering and control
  • First-on logic – starts all generators to allow the first generator to reach rated voltage to close to the bus
  • Synchronizing adjusts other generators’ engine speed and voltage to allow them to connect to the bus
  • External-controlled load sharing via analog bias signals
  • Load management to ensure the generators are not overloaded

Two Gaseous Mobile Generators for Special Events – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 12, 2016

The compact generators offer reliable power options at greater cost savings

Kohler Power Systems has two compact gaseous-fueled generators to meet growing demand for cost-effective mobile power in new markets. The units can easily switch between optional on-board LP fuel tanks and external LP liquid, LP gas or natural gas fuel sources. The two models (50 kVA – 70 kVA) are part of the industry-leading mobile generator line.

The 50REZGT and 70REZGT are ideal for the event rental, construction, commercial and water utility markets. The compact gensets are engineered to provide reliable power in any situation from disaster recovery and special events to serving as primary power at construction sites and backup power at water utilities, commercial retail and healthcare facilities.

The two models can help reduce users’ fuel costs by 15 to 20 percent* compared to diesel fuel. The propane’s benefits extend beyond affordability.

Propane has become the alternative fuel of choice for an expanding range of residential and commercial applications because of its efficiency and lower emissions. Equipment like Kohler’s mobile generators will give professionals more opportunities to enjoy the benefits of clean, affordable, American-made propane on the jobsite.

Better for the environment

The 50REZGT (50 kVA) features a 4.3-liter naturally aspirated engine while the 70REZGT (70 kVA) features a 5.7-liter engine. The two models feature optional on-board LP tanks, so users working in areas without a propane gas supply can use on-board fuel and then switch to an on-site supply when available. The on-board tank is built for a 24-hour run time, while connection to an external LP or natural gas supply offers extended usage.

In addition to being more cost effective than diesel, LP burns cleaner so these Kohler mobile generators produce fewer toxins and less smog-producing carbon monoxide. LP also flashes to vapor at atmospheric pressure, which reduces the risk of accidents from fuel spills. The gaseous-fueled generators also feature a three-way exhaust catalyst and an electronic isochronous governor. They can be customized with optional add-ons like cam-locks and a voltage selector switch.

Both the 50REZGT and 70REZGT are certified for prime power and standby applications by the Environmental Protection Agency, and certified by the California Air Resources Board, which sets strict air quality standards.

Easy maintenance

For the Kohler mobile generators, servicing is easier thanks to the company’s patent-pending enclosure, which is easily pulled off after removing some bolts, offering straightforward access to all parts without disconnecting any wires or additional parts. In addition, the mobile generators include a fluid containment system to collect any leaking engine fluids. All Kohler generators come with a standard three-year warranty managed through a service network of more than 10,000 dealers across the United States dedicated to meeting the needs of commercial and residential customers.

The 50REZGT and 70REZGT are available now. Designed with customization in mind, the line offers a choice of fuel, a wide range of engine sizes, and custom receptacle connectors, fuel tanks and paint or decal packages.
