Kohler Power Systems, a manufacturer of diesel and gasoline marine generators from 4 to 150 kW for a wide range of pleasure and commercial craft applications, two models to talk about in its expanded offering of EPA Tier 3-compliant diesel marine generators – ranging from 125 to 150 kW for 60 Hz, and 100 to 125 kW for 50 Hz.
The models are specially designed for commercial and megayacht marine applications. Both models feature a high-pressure common rail fuel system offering optimum performance and fuel efficiency. They include a newly designed KOHLER Decision-Maker 3500 (DEC 3500) controller equipped with paralleling software, saving much of the space and cost of switchgear.
The KOHLER DEC 3500 offers a customer interface for easier data entry and retrieval. Advanced features include bus sensing, first on logic and synchronization. It can be operated in one of three paralleling modes: P-gen (Kohler-patented), droop, or V-bias/S-bias.
The generators feature:
- Kohler’s newly designed Fast Response X (FRX) alternators with superior permanent magnet excitation
- Isolated ground DC electrical system (standard)
- Smaller footprint compared to previous Tier 2 KOHLER models
In addition to existing heat exchanger and keel-cooling options, Kohler released inline radiator models as part of the company’s commitment to offer fully integrated solution for the workboat market.
