Northern Lights Shrinks Genny, Adds WaveNet NMEA 2000 Monitoring

Northern Lights is basking in the southern sunshine this weekend at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) with a new skinny genny and a NMEA 2000-certified digital monitoring system called WaveNet.

The newly shrunk generator, the M773LW3, is a 9kW model and is almost 30% smaller than its predecessor.  “The overall size of smaller diesel generators and integration with vessel monitoring systems are two increasingly important issues with builders and boaters today,” said NLI sales and marketing manager, Colin Puckett. “We 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.” 

According to NLI, the WaveNet 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, the company said.

If you’re going to FLIBS this weekend, you can check out both new systems at the NLI booth, 1421.
