Kohler Launches New Tier 3 Diesel Marine Generators
Enhanced models integrate Kohler engines, advanced controllers, and improved sound shields
KOHLER, Wis. – August 2016 – Kohler Power Systems, manufacturer of diesel and gasoline marine generators for a wide range of pleasure and commercial craft applications, is announcing the availability of new single- and three-phase Tier 3 marine diesel generators. The company’s 14-24EKOZD/12-20.5EFKOZD integrate Kohler diesel Tier 3 engines and other enhancements, including improved sound shields and Kohler’s highly regarded Decision-Maker 3500 controller (DEC 3500).
“Our generators are always evolving to meet the diverse and dynamic needs of today’s boat builders and pleasure craft owners alike,” said Greg Klompenhouwer, senior product manager for Kohler Marine. “These newest 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. We’re confident the market will respond strongly to these new and improved marine generators.”
In addition to enhanced sound-dampening and engine reliability, users of these new 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.
