Generator Controls


Configurable Controls

switchgear control center

KOHLER® generator controllers incorporate multiple configuration options that are definable and adaptable to your specific application requirements. This adaptability and versatility eliminates the need for any unnecessary extra components upon implementation.

Seamless Integration

KOHLER® generator controllers seamlessly integrate with all system types, allowing for ease of operation. With a built-in integral voltage regulator, the controller ensures that the power necessary for equipment operation meets or exceeds the manufacturer’s requirements for proper operation.

All KOHLER® generator controllers are tested and approved to meet NFPA, UL, and CE standards and are manufactured in Wisconsin, U.S.A.

Every KOHLER® generator controller works seamlessly with automatic transfer switches and switchgears for 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.

Overload Protection

KOHLER® generator controllers are completely capable of protecting generator systems. Built-in alternator protections safeguard your unit against thermal overload faults.

The generator controls have the unique ability to sense the parameters that are based on the T&D curves of the coupled generators. This feature alone can help reduce costly repairs as well as lowering the extended downtime of the generator system.

In a moment of crisis, each controller has an emergency stop button that shuts off the generator providing a last line of defense against catastrophic failure.

Microprocessor-Based Generator Controllers

KOHLER® offers a complete line of microprocessor-based generator controllers for use on industrial, commercial, marine, towable, and even the smallest residential applications. They also provide multiple levels of microprocessor-based generator controls that can be used in conjunction with automatic transfer switches.

KOHLER® is a single-source manufacturer, making tool and interface integration into any building management software a simple process. Implement parallel operation for multiple gensets, enable remote access and adapt touch screens to your software with ease.

The design base customization within each family of generator controllers is accessible from the generator itself or remotely with KOHLER® PowerScan™ technology. KOHLER® 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), meaning they do not rely on multiple manufacturers for parts to build its DPS system. The DPS system is built onsite at KOHLER® so that you are not reliant on an obscure controls company 20 time zones away.

The system  features redundant backup power, so that 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 also allows for easy expansion, which helps to prepare your standby power system for the future. The operational savings feature provides for complete power system management. With this feature, 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. It also 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.
