By MarEx 2014-08-19 15:11:00

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, has just added two new models to 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 new 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 newly designed 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 new 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.

Kohler Power Systems is a global manufacturer of diesel and gasoline marine generators for a wide range of pleasure and commercial craft applications.  Kohler Marine’s authorized service network includes more than 800 dealers and distributors around the world, and trained technicians are available 24 hours a day.
