Introduction of Digital Controller
Author：Newtec Power Date：2014-07-10 09:13:50
Visually, a control panel is a set of displays that indicate the measurement of various parameters like voltage, current and frequency, through gauges and meters. These meters and gauges are set in a metallic body, usually corrosion proof, to protect from the effect of rain or snow. The panel may be set up on the body of the generator itself, which is usually the case with small generators. If they are mounted on the generator, they typically have vibration proof pads that help isolate the control panel from shocks. Control panels for a larger industrial generators can be completely separate from the generator and are typically large enough to stand upon their own. These units may also be shelf-mounted or wall-mounted next to the generator, which is common inside an enclosure or intental application like a data center.
Control panels are usually fitted with buttons or switches that help to operate the generator such as a switch-off button or turn-on key. The switches and gauges are usually grouped on the basis of functionality. This makes the panel friendly and safe for use since it minimizes the possibility of an operator accidentally selecting or executing the wrong control. Imagine trying to shut down a vibrating generator with a spring loaded lever in the middle of the night and you will appreciate why having a simple cut of switch at the control panel makes sense.
Some of The common things today’s control panels offer include; continuous digital readouts, large character LCD screens, displays with running time, oil pressure and water temperature sensors, set points and custom message options, wiring harnesses, remote and local start/stop capabilities, and of course shut-down capabilities.
Here are the common Digital Controllers which used in our Control Panels:
1,Deepsea DSE series
Deepsea controllers are made in UK，They produce industry leading genset and ATS control modules. Intelligent battery chargers & power supplies. Advanced LED lighting boards and drivers including DALI.
2,Comap MRS series
ComAp controllers are made in Czech Republic,they can provide comprehensive generator protection and control for single or multiple gen-sets based on field proven InteliGen NT and InteliSys NT platforms. The primary function of Generator controler is to manage and protect the generator in preference to the engine, which is not a direct concern. GeCon can be used in applications where engine management or protection is not required or in cases where the generator is powered by another source such as a turbine controlled by an external PLC. The controller is suitable for use in LandBased and Marine applications.
Besides Deepsea and ComAp,there are Harsen from Hongkong,Smartgen from China etc brands.
