By Renée Francoeur
September 30, 2016 – Kohler Power Systems says it has completed its first industrial standby diesel generator line powered by a Kohler engine. The fully-integrated Kohler product line utilizes Kohler’s Direct Injection (KDI) diesel engines and includes both Tier 3 and Tier 4 Final models ranging from 15kW to 60kW.
Ideal for the telecom industry, office buildings, banks, medical institutions, as well as police and fire stations, there are nine models available within the range.
Kohler says the six Tier 3 models are designed as emergency generators, while the three Tier 4 Final models are for non-emergency applications.
The entire line features single-side service, where all points of entry for normal maintenance are located on one side of the generator.
Some other features include: brushless, rotating-field alternator; voltage waveform from a two-thirds pitch stator and skewed rotor; and larger fuel tank options (72 hours and 96 hour tanks).
