Switchgear Control Center
KOHLER® generator controls incorporate multiple configuration options which are definable and adaptable to your specific application requirement. This adaptability and versatility eliminates the need for any extra unnecessary components upon implementation. KOHLER generator controls seamlessly integrate with all system types, allowing for ease of operation. KOHLER controls are tested and approved to meet the NFPA, UL, and CE standards, and are manufactured in Wisconsin, USA.
The generator controls have an integral voltage regulator. This precision voltage regulation assures that the power necessary for equipment operation meets or exceeds the manufacturer’s requirements for proper operation. Every KOHLER generator controller works seamlessly with automatic transfer switches, and switchgear for a comprehensive system integration. With KOHLER Power Systems, there’s no need to waste time, effort, and resources on secondary adaptations or dealing with multiple equipment manufacturers in the field or onsite. KOHLER is your one stop shop for a complete and reliable power system.
KOHLER generator controls are completely capable of protecting the generator systems. Built-in alternator protections safeguard your unit against thermal overload faults. The generator controls have the unique ability to sense the parameters which are based on the T&D curves of the coupled generators. This feature alone can help reduce costly repairs as well as reducing extended down time of the generator system. In a moment of crisis each controller has an emergency stop button which shuts off the generator providing the last line of defense against a catastrophic failure.
KOHLER offers a complete line of microprocessor based generator controllers for use on Industrial, Commercial, Marine, Towable, and even the smallest Residential applications. KOHLER also provides multiple levels of microprocessor based generator controls that can be used in conjunction with Automatic Transfer Switches. KOHLER engineers their own code and manufactures their own circuit boards. User access and interface range from simple user-friendly LCD screens to sophisticated touch screen allowing parallel operation for multiple gensets. Touch screen HMI’s, remote access, and easy integration with Building Management Software are all doable when you have a single source manufacturer like KOHLER that designs their own product.
The design base customization within each family of generator controllers is accessible from the generator itself or remotely with KOHLER’s PowerScan™ technology. The generator controllers also provide the ability to annunciate functions through remote annunciators, or communications to SCADA or user networks via the Modbus protocol.
Decision-Maker Paralleling System
KOHLER alone created, manufactured, and tested its Decision-Maker Paralleling System (DPS). KOHLER does not rely on multiple manufactures for parts to build its DPS system. In fact the DPS system is built onsite at KOHLER so that you are not reliant on an obscure controls company 20 time zones away. The DPS features redundant backup power; should one generator need service or fail the custom system will automatically ensure that the most critical loads remain online without overloading the source.
The DPS allows for easy expansion which helps to prepare your standby power system for the future. The operational savings feature allows for complete power system management. With operational savings the generator only runs the necessary amount of generators to support the loads connected helping you save on fuel, maintenance, and unnecessary wear and tear. The KOHLER DPS control system functions on various fuel types giving you complete fuel versatility.
The KOHLER Decision Maker 6000 Controller enables load sharing and synchronization for up to eight gensets. This simple function is a tremendously versatile cost savings feature for generator systems that do not require traditional paralleling switchgear.
