A Window Into Electronic Engines

Posted on October 19, 2012

FW Murphy has introduced the PowerView model PV25 to stationary and/or mobile equipment manufacturers using Tier 4 or /Euro Stage 3b/4 and below engines.

The PowerView model PV25 is designed to provide a window into electronic engines via SAE J1939 communications. The PV25 display joins Murphy’s existing PowerView display portfolio offering OEMs a range of capabilities that displays both engine parameters and diagnostic trouble codes. Specifically, Murphy said the PV25 provides equipment operators a window to see how the engine is performing by showing 20 key J1939 parameters broadcast from the ECU. The unit features simple operation using up and down pushbuttons to scroll through parameters. The unit also shows J1939 warning and shut-down conditions with bright LEDs.

Further, equipment operators can request and inhibit regeneration of Tier 4/Euro Stage 4 engines with universal ISO symbols in addition to showing key parameters such as DEF and soot levels. Both active DM1 and stored DM2 faults are shown using the suspect parameter number (SPN), failure mode indicator (FMI), and occurrence count (OC).

The unit is designed as a replacement to existing hour meters and can instrument mechanical engines with an additional MeCAN module. Further the PV25 is designed for excellent visibility in direct sunlight.
