Auto Start Genset Controller
The Be124 Auto Start Genset Controller allows you to make high-tech generator control panels. By adding a few automotive relays you can make an universal generator auto start panel. This is one of the most compact and extremely flexible Auto Start Genset Controller. In all cases where you need extra features we really recommend that you consider the Be124 Centurion. This is simply unique! It includes an on-line precision oscilloscope and an high performance Data Logger able to record the variations of Temperature, Oil Pressure, Speed (and many others) for the last 30 days. It also includes a full 3-phase generator multi function programmable protection relay. The Be124 provides the user with visual indication by means of LEDs and a LCD Display for all parameters and alarms. You will experience a CRYSTALLINE CLARITY of what is going on and what is happening with your generator. The Be124 genset controller features RS485 and CANBUS communication too. You can connect any SAE-J1939 compatible engine. By adding our TCP-IP server you will be able to connect your generator to INTERNET. You can start and stop the generator from any place in the world with encryption Bernini Design data security.

What is and Auto Start Genset Controller (by now on simply: 'AGSC') and why we should use it. This is a general description, but please consider that Be124 has many extra features. We recommend that you browse the OEM manual.
The main function of an AGSC is to automatically start stop and protect the diesel generator. This is accomplished by using pre-defined parameters like a scheduler or external triggers generated by various sources: level switches, pressure switches, climate control systems, mains failure detection relays or simply remote switches. The Be124 AGSC releases the user from boring manual activities. A main feature of an AGSC, anyway, is to provide a full manual control of the system. This could be useful in emergency situations or when you need to take priority over the automatic system. An AGSC should include the following programmable parameters:
START DELAY TIME It provides an adjustable delay after detecting a start condition request on a programmable input (or serial interface).
STOP DELAY TIME It provides an adjustable delay after detecting a stop condition request on a programmable input (or serial interface).
PRE-LUBE TIME It energizes the Pre-lube pump or simply it could be used to delay the crank if necessary.
PRE-GLOW TIME It energizes the Pre-glow of the diesel engine.
CHOKE TIME It energizes the Choke of gasoline engine for a programmed time.
CRANK VDC It terminates the crank when voltage of the charger alternator rises above the setting. The option OFF disable the monitoring.
CRANK VAC It terminates the crank when voltage of the generator rises above the setting. The option OFF disable the monitoring.
CRANK TIME It limits the coupling of the starter motor to avoid over-heating problems.
CRANK REST TIME It creates a delay after each starting pulse in a way to stabilize the parameters of the battery.
START ATTEMPTS It limits the numbers of attempts before providing a starting failure alarm.
CRANK HZ It terminates the crank when frequency of the generator or speed of the engine rises above the setting.
CRANK RPM It terminates the crank when frequency of the generator or speed of the engine rises above the setting.
The above parameters are normally 'factory defined', but a good AGSC lets the user full access to the setting in a way to adapt the AGS to any engine any generator.
About the hardware in terms of INPUTs of the BE124 AGSC.
- 3 configurable digital inputs
- 3 configurable analog inputs
- analog input to monitor the charger alternator
-analog input for the generator voltage / frequency
-analog inputs for Current Generator monitoring
-analog input for earth fault current monitoring
About the hardware in terms of Outputs of the BE124 AGSC.
- digital output for fuel solenoid (energized to run)
- digital output for STOP solenoid (energized to stop)
- digital output to drive an audible alarm signal
- digital output to drive the generator circuit breaker
- 2 digital configurable outputs
External relays could be placed in proximity of the Engine or Generator. Automotive Plug-In relays are always preferable. In case of damage you can replace the relay (it is really easy to find automotive relays in a shop for auto parts & accessories).
