Kohler Home Backup Features

Kohler Home Standby Generator

  • Kohler utilizes a skewed, rotating field alternator for exceptional power quality that minimizes harmonic distortion and responds to changing loads. No-load to full-load transition results in less than 5% distortion and a superior voltage waveform.
  • The digital voltage regulator maintains the voltage level to within 1 percent. The electronic governor provides steady state frequency regulation within 0.5 percent and isochronous no-load to full-load transition (no droop).
  • Coupled with an automatic transfer switch (ATS) the Kohler Home Backup Generator is a fully automatic, permanently installed appliance. It immediately senses a power outage and starts within seconds. Moments after that, the ATS switches the home onto generator power. The generator can run for days or weeks until the utility restores power.
  • Kohler’s Command Pro Engine is an air-cooled V-twin, overhead valve engine with hydraulic lifters that eliminate the need for regular valve adjustment or a break-in period. It easily converts between natural gas and propane at the time of installation. The Command Pro features a fully pressurized lubrication system and integrated cooling unit for extended run times.
  • Installation requirements make the generator ideal for residential neighborhoods. A corrosion proof cabinet with a sleek, contoured shape easily fits into your home’s landscaping and installs as close as 18 inches from your home. Quiet operation with noise levels similar to a central air conditioner won’t disturb your neighbors.
  • Kohler Home Backup Generators use the DC2 digital controller with LED indicators, an LCD display, and four-button user interface. An included ethernet port allows connection to the optional On Cue software for remote monitoring and generator control.
