Generator Base Frame – Video
The Northern Lights marine generator base frame is a critical component and directly contributes to the reliability and quality of our equipment.
There are two versions of the generator base frame. The 5-6 kW units utilize a solid, stainless steel, one piece frame. Larger generators, 7kW and higher, use a powder coated steel fabricated base frame. In these units, the stainless steel frame incorporates the plateform mounts and the drip tray. The drip tray has a built in oil drain that allows the owner to change the oil by simply opening up the drain fitting. This oil drain can also be connected to a remote drain pump assembly inside the engine room of the boat.
Also incorporated into the frame is a manifold for the fuel inlet and fuel return. This makes the connections easier and neater. With these connections located all together and in one place, we reduce the potential for leaks and make the boat builder’s job easier when installing the generator.
