Kohler Introduces New Air-Cooled, Three-Phase Generator for Light Commercial Applications

New 14/20 kW air-cooled, three-phase generator provides an economical, space-saving option for small businesses


KOHLER, Wis. – January 14, 2015 – Kohler® Generators introduces an air-cooled, three-phase generator specifically designed for businesses seeking a more economical, space-saving alternative to traditional liquid-cooled, three-phase generators. The KOHLER 14/20 kW provides award-winning performance and dependability in a smaller, budget-friendly design.

“An air-cooled, three-phase generator may be ideal for banks, restaurants, convenience stores and other commercial applications where 20,000 watts or less are needed during power outages,” said Melanie Tydrich, Senior Channel Manager- Residential/Light Commercial for Kohler. “Because the generator is air-cooled, you get all the performance and power of an equivalent liquid-cooled generator in a smaller, more economical package. It’s specifically designed for smaller-sized businesses that want to stay up-and-running during a power outage.”

The 14/20 kW generator is powered by a heavy-duty, commercial-grade engine designed for harsh weather conditions and heavy use. The generator starts up within 10 seconds of an outage and can power major systems and appliances in a small business, including: HVAC, lights, security systems, computers, cash registers, coolers and more. Kohler’s exclusive PowerBoost technology provides the necessary power to start large electrical loads without dropping other circuits or systems as they cycle on and off.

The 14/20 kW runs on natural gas or liquid propane, so there’s no need for refueling during a power outage. In addition, the generator can be remotely monitored from a computer, tablet or smartphone using the OnCue Plus Wireless Generator Management System. The generator’s compact, corrosion-resistant enclosure blends seamlessly with a building’s exterior while its quiet, neighborhood-friendly operation reduces sound levels similar to a central air conditioning unit. Other features include:
• Robust Kohler Command PRO engine, with three-phase operation running on natural gas or LP
• Corrosion-resistant enclosure impacted tested to -30F
• RDC2 digital controller
• Compatible with RXT transfer switches and OnCue Plus® Generator Management System (GM81385-KP2-QS) and Programmable Interface Module (PIM)
• CSA/EPA certifications
• Five-year warranty
