For more than a century, the Kohler name has been synonymous with quality and reliability. Today, Kohler offers an appropriate emergency backup generator for every conceivable residential need. It manufactures backup residential generators capable of outputs ranging from six kilowatts all the way up to 150 kilowatts.
Larger units come in single-phase or three-phase configurations, while 20Kw and smaller units feature single-phase operation. With Kohler’s PowerBoost™ technology, Kohler Generators will provide the power required to deal with large loads like central air start-ups, while maintaining power to other important appliances.
Small and medium-size generators are powered by Kohler engines featuring efficient overhead valve (OHV) designs that operate at standard air-cooled speeds of 3600 rpm. The largest Kohler backup generators are actually powered by automotive-grade Vortec engines from General Motors that operate at 1800 rpm.
All Kohler backup generators are exceptionally quiet, considering the power they produce. These neighborhood-friendly units emit the sound of a typical central air conditioning unit.
All units are readily connected to existing natural gas or liquid propane (LPG) fuel sources. It is possible to make a simple switch in the field from one fuel source to another. Those with lower gas line pressures will appreciate the fact that some units can operate on natural gas fuel pressures down to 3.5 inches.
High-quality Emergency Power
All Kohler generators provide steady, high-quality power within seconds of a power outage. The quality of power delivered protects even the most sophisticated electronics from damage that can occur when a lower-quality emergency power source is deployed. You’ll enjoy high-quality digital voltage regulation along with reliable frequency regulation featuring very low levels of harmonic distortion.
With a Kohler backup generator, your residence is automatically disconnected from utility lines when there’s a power failure. This protects you and your valuable electronics from power surges, brownouts and power spikes as power is restored. Your generator does not switch you back to electrical power from the utility until voltage has stabilized.
To help you monitor larger backup generators, Kohler has developed its Decision-Maker® 3000 controller. You can remotely monitor system functions and run system diagnostics from your computing device.
Reliability and Peace-of-mind
Enjoy the peace-of-mind that super-reliable Kohler generators provide when severe storms, grid problems and natural disasters strike. No more scrambling for extension cords. No more worries about indoor comfort, hot water from an electric water heater or perishable foods.
Kohler generators are protected by standard, heavy-duty steel enclosures capable of withstanding 181 mph winds. They’ve been tested down to -30 F. These enclosures also feature a long-lasting powder coat finish. An aluminum enclosure is optional. Additionally, Kohler’s premium generator warranty provides 5-year, 2,000-hour protection.
About Kohler Power Systems
For decades, Kohler Power Systems has brought design and engineering expertise to backup power generation. In fact, it has addressed global power needs since just after World War I. Before that, generators were primarily limited to charging battery banks. Then, Kohler introduced a 110V unit capable of automatic turn-on and turn-off. In 2014, a 105,000 sq-ft addition opened at its generator manufacturing facility.
Kohler Power Systems is a division of the Kohler Company, a privately held company founded in 1873. Its global headquarters is located just north of Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The company employs more than 30,000 employees, and it maintains more than 50 global manufacturing facilities.
