Kohler Power Systems has added three low-carbon-monoxide gasoline generators to the low-CO lineup it launched in 2006.
An EPA Phase 3-compliant Kohler Aegis electronic-fuel-injected engine powers all three units, helping to reduce CO emissions to a minimal level, says Nick Pappathopoulos, Kohler Power Systems public relations manager. The alternators and digital controls on these gensets are also made by Kohler. The gensets are available in 60 Hz power outputs of 5 kW, 7.5 kW and 10 kW; and 50 Hz power outputs of 4 kW, 6 kW and 8 kW. The units are designed with single-side access to oil fill, oil drain, oil filter, seawater pump, controller, zinc anode, fuel inlet, coolant fill, circuit breaker and electrical fuses. Launched in conjunction with the new generators, the second generation of Kohler's Advanced Digital Control, ADCII, uses a more powerful processor and expanded memory capacity to enhance power management, Pappathopoulos says. Three separate safety inputs - on-board CO detection, a boat warning system and an exhaust catalyst health monitor - provide comprehensive CO protection. Contact: Kohler, (800) 544-2444.
