GENERATOR AUTO START REMOTE CONTROL
You can start the engine from a remote location by using a simple switch. In this generator auto start you can program the option N.C.or N.O.. It is mandatory to connect one side of the switch to battery minus. Avoid to connect the terminal to a remote 'ground' point.
GENERATOR AUTO START MODE OF OPERATION
MODE OF OPERATION SELECTION
The Be24A generator auto start features AUTO, MANUAL and OFF mode of operation. When the power supply is switched on, the Be24A generator auto start reacts as follows:
a) if the KEY-SWITCH is in the OFF position, the Be24A generator auto start enters the OFF
b) if the KEY-SWITCH is in the ON position, the Be24A generator auto start enters the AUTO mode. That is, if the Be24A was in AUTO prior to the supply removal. If not, the Be24A generator auto start enters the MANUAL mode.
The OFF mode clears the alarms and turns the Display off. To select the OFF mode, turn the KEY-switch to off. In the OFF mode you can read the settings or program the controller (see sections 6.0 and 11.0).
The Be24A generator auto start operates according to the parameters indicated in section 11.0 of the OEM user manual. The Be24A initiates the starting of the engine if the ‘REMOTE START' input energizes or if parameters [P.26]-[P.27] have been programmed (SCHEDULER).
To enter 'AUTO' mode, use the following instructions:
A) - turn ON the KEY-switch; the Be24A generator auto start illuminates the Display and LEDs for 1 second
B) - push the AUTO push button, then the Be24A generator auto start will indicate [uuuu] (Pre-glow cycle) or [StA-]; the yellow Led ‘AUTO’ also illuminates. If the REMOTE START input is not activated, the yellow LED blinks. If activated, the yellow LED illuminates continuously and a start cycle will take place after an adjustable delay period ([P.0], see also section 9.0 of the OEM manual).
C) - To exit the AUTO mode, push the AUTO push button (the yellow Led turns OFF) or turn the KEY-switch to OFF.
If Automatic Periodic Test is triggered, the display indicates the message [tESt] (see application note in section 19.0 of the OEM manual).
The Be24A generator auto start stores the AUTO operating mode in the memory; if the battery supply then fails and restores, the Be24A will enter the AUTO mode automatically. To clear the memory of the AUTO mode, push the AUTO push button, or turn OFF the KEY-switch.
MANUAL mode gives an engine start by means of the KEY SWITCH. Use the following instructions:
A) - Turn ON the KEY-switch; the Be24A generator auto start illuminates the LEDs and Display.
B) - If the display shows the message [uuuu], the Be24A is counting the PRE-GLOW time ([P.13]/[P.14]); wait until the message disappears.
C) - When the display shows the message [StA-] turn the Key to START position until the engine starts. The Be24A indicates [ . . . .] during cranking.
D) - To stop the engine, turn the KEY-switch to off.
(*) NOTE: If the display indicates a blinking message, there is an alarm; consult section 4.0 of the OEM manual
(**)NOTE: The Be24A shows the [StA-] message for 20 seconds. After this time, if the engine does not start, the Be24A shuts down the FUEL SOLENOID and displays the message [FAIL] (Fail to start, see section 4.07 of the OEM Manual).To clear the alarm, turn the KEY-switch to OFF.
GENERATOR AUTO START SCHEDULER
To trigger the Periodic Test, you are required to program the parameters [P.26] and [P.27] (section 11.0 of the OEM manual). In order to have the engine start at the desired moment, please follow these instructions:
- disconnect the power supply of the Be24A
- wait for the desired start time (external clock reference) and apply the power supply to the Be24A.
- select the 'AUTO' mode of operation
The Be24A will start the engine after the programmed number of days (P.26). The engine will run for the programmed time (P.27). If the battery voltage is removed, we recommend that you synchronize the ‘Power On’ of the Be24A with an external clock.
Time remaining to start indication:
The Be24A shows the remaining time to trigger the test: push the [ENTER] pushbutton while Be24A is in AUTO operating mode. The display will indicate days followed by hours ([DD.hh]).
