KOHLER, Wis. – September 2015 – Kohler Power Systems is introducing powerful new 175 kW (50 Hz) and 200 kW (60 Hz) models to its growing lineup of EPA Marine Tier 3-compliant diesel generators. The new 200EOZDJ/175EFOZDJ are ideally suited to superyacht applications, while the 200EOZCJ/175EFOZCJ are specifically designed for commercial applications. All models feature the Kohler Decision-Maker® 3500 controller (DEC 3500), which offers the ability to quickly and easily parallel two or more of the company’s generators with a single communication wire.
“We’re pleased to offer these new units which increase the power range of our popular Tier 3 diesel generator line and extend the benefits of our DEC 3500 to a growing number of customers around the world,” said Greg Klompenhouwer, senior product manager for Kohler Marine. “These models all incorporate standard premium features like electronic high pressure common rail engines and permanent magnet excitation systems to deliver the optimum performance and single level of quality that you’ve come to expect from Kohler.”
In addition to accommodating for easier and more cost-effective paralleling, the Decision-Maker 3500 controller’s space-saving design also eliminates the need for oversized switchgear. Other benefits of the world-class controller include: 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 an enhanced level of reliability.
