Cranking out 30 kW at 60 Hz (1800 rpm), the M944W3 is intended for long life at full load. At more then 3.33 liters, this four cylinder dynamo has the displacement (203 cid) to shoulder the large loads. The generator is driven by a reliable Lugger engine, drawing its strength from an industrial block designed for 2500 max rpm; not the 3600 rpm automotive engine common in the industry. That is the reason that the M944W3 hits the top of its torque curve at 1800 rpm instead of sliding down the back of it.
The block is impressive, but what makes the M944W3 so well adapted for the rigors of at-sea use is Northern Lights’ exclusive marinization package. From the cupro-nickel heat exchanger to the bronze/stainless gear driven seawater pump, no detail has been overlooked in engineering a superior marine product. The freshwater cooled exhaust manifold is sturdy cast iron with no dry risers.
The M944W3 features Northern Lights’ revolutionary W-Series generator end for clean AC output and real short circuit protection. The air filter is cast aluminum for quiet operation. The M944W3 meets the US EPA Tier III emission requirements.
