Onan Expands Generator Line—Adds 12.5-KW And 30-KW Diesel Sets

—Brochure Available— Expanding and improving its line of marine generator sets (gensets), Onan Corporation has introduced two new diesel models—the 12.5 MDL3 and the 30 MDL6. Both models are powered by Onan L Series diesel engines.

The 12.5 MDL3 fills a market void between 8-kw and 15-kw marine gensets. The 30 MDL6, Onan's largest L engine powered genset, is priced competitively with other 30- kw sets in the marketplace.

Both units feature an Onan brushless AC alternator—available in 50 or 60 hertz, three point vibration isolation mounting system, ai intake silencer and integral heat exchanger with water cooled exhaust manifold. The 60 hertz 12.5 MDL3 also features a line circuit breaker.

These two gensets feature oneside service and maintenance access.

Additional features include a vibration isolated, mounted control panel which can be adjusted for three different positions depending on the installation. Controls include start-run-stop switch, hour-meter, DC control circuit breaker, and a manual reset fault relay indicating engine shutdown for high engine temperature, high exhaust temperature and low oil pressure. Both gensets feature transformer voltage regulation.

The 12.5 MDL3 weighs 845 pounds and its dimensions are 43.5 inches length, 23.7 inches width and 26.3 inches height. The 30 MDL6 weighs 1,280 pounds and its dimensions are 60 inches length, 23 inches width and 29.25 inches height.

The two new Onan sets feature a galley full of options including sound shields, gauge packages, solid state voltage regulators and overspeed shutdown switches as well as mufflers, shoreline transfer switches and batteries.

These marine gensets can be used to power a variety of luxury items including VCR's, microwave ovens, blenders, stereos, air conditioning or power hand tools for shoreside maintenance.
