 LOA over 75m

Kahlenberg KPH-130C

The Kahlenberg KPH-130C Triton Electric Piston Horn is electrically powered and IMO certified for vessels over 75m (246ft) and over 200m (656ft) in length. It is a hugely proven model in service around the globe, ruggedly built and heated for continuous service. A completely standalone solution – just add an electrical supply.

Kahlenberg KPH-130C marine electric piston horn

The Kahlenberg KPH-130C marine piston horn is ideal for situations where it is preferable not to arrange a remote power supply and the Triton can be specified to cover a range of power options, including 380V three-phase 50Hz model and 460V three-phase 60Hz version. Both utilise 230V for the control voltage.

The fundamental frequency is 130Hz and the KPH-130C Triton Electric Piston Horn has an audible range of 2nm. SPL is 147dBA at 1m.

It uses a high strength aluminium bell and supporting frame, an aluminium crankcase and a stainless steel cylinder and fasteners. The KPH-130C is self-draining and it uses a motor rated to IP56 and insulation Class F with an anti-condensation strip heater. The crankcase and piston assembly is oil-free and also heated.

The KPH-130C Triton Electric Piston Horn is Alodine treated, primed and enamel coated.
