What if your generator manufacturer could also be your switchgear manufacturer? It can be and should be. KOHLER® manufactures world-class engine-driven generator sets, but they are also a leading producer of paralleling switchgear systems. Are you concerned about specifications or have existing switchgear systems to interface? That is not a problem with KOHLER® Switchgear. KOHLER® provides a seamless power system integration; in other words, KOHLER® switchgear works with the complete line of KOHLER power system products – generators, automatic transfer switches, and more.

Whether it’s keeping up with codes like UL891, UL1558, or meeting CSA and IEEE guidelines, KOHLER® switchgear systems do just that. All KOHLER® switchgear is available in certified packages and is cUL listed, and IBC certified.

KOHLER® switchgear systems have cutting-edge load management functionality, which helps provide ample flexibility to manage critical loads in the most demanding conditions. The load management features allow for flexibility and savings in reduced fuel costs once the system is on-site and operational. KOHLER Switchgear is engineered, tested, and built with the highest quality standards in Wisconsin USA.

KOHLER® incorporates a variety of distribution circuit breakers within its switchgear systems. The robust range of circuit breaker options allows for increased power and system flexibility. This enables you to choose and manage the breaker for downstream coordination of system distribution breakers within a facility. KOHLER® paralleling switchgear is available with a vast array of custom options from controls, meters, protective relays, and so much more. The wide variety of custom options allows for system monitoring and legacy control.

KOHLER® switchgear systems have a seamlessly integrated user-friendly color touch screen control center. The touch screen control center system is designed with tabbed access to various controls and monitoring functions. This provides a unique window into the heart and brain of the switchgear system. The control center includes a USB port and the ability to export various reports such as fault reports, historical reports, and run reports to a CSV file. This helps provide detailed documentation of the unit, which may be required according to local state or industry regulations.

The control center also includes Modbus communications. The use of Modbus Protocol allows for real-time interactions between KOHLER® integrated devices and third-party applications like SCADA or BMS. The information is transmitted and displayed remotely via Ethernet so that you can have complete and instantaneous insight on the power system’s performance. The Modbus communication in the control center also encompasses a web server and allows the utilization of WEBHMI functions. With an Ethernet connection, the control center helps to monitor and operate the switchgear system remotely with complete command as if you were standing in front of the HMI controls. This feature helps to eliminate the need for third-party applications and costly unnecessary programming.
