Kohler Marine Diesel Generators
Alongside their industrial, mobile and residential units, Kohler produce
marine generators from 5 -175 kW all from their own US factory on the
banks of lake Michigan.
Throughout the range they are designed to produce full rated power all day long; running at 1500 rpm to reduce vibration and heat build up.
The small 5, 7 and 9 kW range use Kohler’s own 3 and 4 cylinder engine with life expectancy of over 10,000 hrs prior to re-build. The class H alternator’s are built in house to ensure compatibility, the Kohler ADC11d digital controller exceeds all ISO standards for voltage and frequency control so necessary for modern appliances and communicates via NMEA 2000 bus. Following a plan of vertical integration even the sound shields are designed and manufactured in house with air baffles for maximum sound reduction, multi density foam all painted in epoxy for maximum protection. With a range of options they are suitable for most marine and vehicle applications.
As the third largest generator manufacturer worldwide Kohler continue to invest heavily in new product to meet increasingly stringent emission regulations. The newly released 35 EFKOZD is Tier 111 compliant without the need for after exhaust treatment: using the Kohler 2504TCR engine it is 40 % lighter than the model it replaces.
In common with all Kohler marine generators from 12 kw -175 kw it uses the patented Kohler Dec3500 controller – with built in load shedding and load sharing it enables the electrical load to be met with fewer installed kW’s thus reducing weight, maintenance and fuel usage.
