SEATTLE â€“ Oct. 26, 2010 â€“ (Marine NewsWire) For the first time at the 2010 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Northern Lights, Inc. (NLI) will display the re-designed M773LW3 generator set, along with the new WaveNet digital monitoring system for its industry-leading lineup of marine-diesel generators.
Following in the tradition of the newly-designed 38kW M944T and the 5-6kW M673 series, the 9kW M773LW3 features NLIâ€™s revolutionary new base frame and sound enclosure. The new design has accomplished a 28 percent reduction in overall volume from the previous configuration while maintaining class-leading sound attenuation.
The WaveNet monitoring system is a significant step forward for the range of NLI panel offerings. This system gives the user a digital window into the operation and output of the generator, including important parameters such as the generator output current, frequency and voltage that is being used at any given time. It also provides comprehensive data logging of generator-related events. WaveNet is NMEA 2000-certified allowing output to any number of NMEA 2000-compatible displays and can be retrofitted into existing NLI applications.
â€œThe overall size of smaller diesel generators and integration with vessel monitoring systems are two increasingly important issues with builders and boaters today,â€ said NLI sales and marketing manager, Colin Puckett. â€œWe are looking forward to carrying this design philosophy throughout our power generation lineup. The smaller enclosure design and digital monitoring options further exemplify our commitment to keeping NLI at the forefront as a single-source supplier of marine systems.â€
The new M773LW3 and the WaveNet system will both be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oct. 28 â€“ Nov. 1 in NLIâ€™s booth 1421, along with the rest of NLIâ€™s industry-leading lineup of marine systems.
