New Gen-Set Panels

Posted on July 13, 2011

Controls Inc. has introduced a new series of generator panels that combine its C series engine display module with traditional analog AC meters. The new 8500 series panels are designed for use with both mechanical engines and electronically controlled operating on J1939 communications protocols with manual and auto start versions available, the company said.

The 1 in. high x 4 in. wide digital engine display is LCD-based, incorporating two 16-character lines with 0.5 in. high characters and backlighting for easy readability in all light conditions, the company said. The display offers real time monitoring of six critical operating parameters. AC metering for the 8500 series panels indicate voltages, amps and frequency. Operating voltage is 5.5 to 36 VDC and reverse polarity protection, transient voltage suppression and load dump protection are all included, Controls Inc. said.

More information will be provided in an upcoming issue of Diesel Progress.
