Marine generator specialist Kohler Power Systems has introduced updated emissions-compliant diesel generators from 40kW-99kW for 60Hz and 33kW-80kW for 50Hz.
The new models, which are smaller and quieter than previous units, include a newly designed Kohler Decision-Maker 3500 (DEC 3500) controller equipped with paralleling software and load-management software. This allows for automatic paralleling of two generators without the cost and extra footprint of switchgear, says the company.
“While load requirements have increased due to advanced electronics equipment, onboard space is still at a premium,” says Kohler engineer Frank Formas, engineer at Kohler Power Systems. “Our new paralleling controller matches power capacity with load needs to eliminate under-loading and over-fuelling, while conserving space, decreasing fuel costs and reducing equipment maintenance.”
Kohler Power Systems is a US manufacturer of diesel and gasoline marine generators from 4kW-500kW for a range of pleasure and commercial craft applications.
