The Taunton, Mass., company’s latest electronic generator is the 17.0 EDE, offered in two kilowatt ratings — 17 kW (60 Hertz @ 1800 RPM) for the U.S. market and 13.5 kW (50 Hertz @ 1500 RPM) for sale in Europe.

The Westerbeke lineup now includes 12 models — from 5.0 to 33.0 kW — with the option of an NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association) 2000 R compliant databus. NMEA 2000 R is a standard for a serial data communications network to connect marine electronic equipment. Equipment designed to this standard has the ability to share data — including commands and status with other compatible equipment — on a single channel. For vessels that do not require or cannot comply with NMEA 2000 R protocols, Westerbeke’s communication network, WesterLink databus, is available. A common NMEA 2000 R display can combine Westerbeke with other NMEA 2000 R products, allowing operators to monitor their on-board equipment.

This system allows boatbuilders and their customers to significantly reduce the cost, weight and space normally required to run cables throughout a vessel. All NMEA 2000 R-certified electronics can communicate on a single, shared digital cable. T-connectors tap into this backbone cable to build a network that can be powered by the Westerbeke generator. Westerbeke’s digital controls simplify diagnostic and operating data. Their digital display provides both at-a-glance LED status lights and a bright LCD screen where detailed information can be scrolled through. Other standard features include safety shutdowns for over-speed, under-speed, low oil pressure, high exhaust and high coolant temperature. Retail price for the 17 kW model is $19,650. A model with the NMEA 2000 R capacity is an additional $670. Contact: Westerbeke Corp., (508) 823-7677. www.westerbeke.com
