Generator Controller Input & Output Programming

CONFIGURABLE INPUT OPTIONS

To enter the generator controller configurable inputs outputs, see the instructions on the top of the page or browse the section 11.0 of the OEM manual. Use the [ ↑ ] or [ ↓ ] arrow to select a parameter. Push the [→] push button to enter the numerical field. Push the [ ↑ ] or [ ↓ ] arrow to set a value. Push the [←] push button to return to the parameter list. When you modify a parameter, the screen will automatically guide through the saving parameters procedure.

 

Configurable Input 1 (JC-10)

Configurable Input 2 (JC-9)

Configurable Input 3 (JC-8)

 

 

INPUT  1    OPTION

                         1

INPUT  1  CONTACT

                      N.O.

.

 

INPUT   2     OPTION

                           12

INPUT  2   CONTACT

                           N.O.

 

INPUT   3    OPTION

                           13

INPUT   3    CONTACT

                          N.O.

For each input you can choose an option (see the above table) and the contact type (can be either Normally Open or Closed). Normally Open means that the function triggers when you close the switch. Normally Closed means that the function triggers when you open the switch. Factory programming is 'Normally Open'. The generator controller configurable inputs outputs tool allows you to adapt the generator controller to all kind of applications: standby generator, ATS panel and AMF panels. To make sure to connect the programmable input in a proper way we recommend that you consult the wiring diagram.

 

Options & description

 

Options & description

[ 0 ]

It disables the input. The Be124 will totally ignore the input.

 

[ 07 ]

Remote LOCK. It disables the generator and stops the engine. The Be124 indicates the alarm REMOTE LOCK . When you turn off the switch (if a N.O. contact is used), the engine may start automatically and Be124 will automatically clear the alarm.

[ 1 ]

It stops the engine immediately and the display will indicate a SHUTDOWN alarm.

 

[ 08 ]

Oil Pressure Switch option (program option N.C. if you use a Pressure Switch that closes the contacts in case of Low Oil Pressure). The Be124 will shut down the engine in case of low oil pressure. The alarm is ignored during the Alarms Bypass time. This option can be used if the JC-7 input is already used in analog mode (for sensor) and you need extra-protection by using a pressure switch connected to a digital input.

[ 2 ]

It shutdowns the engine but the Be124 ignores the input during the Alarms Bypass Timing

(See 11.4.9 to program the Alarms Bypass Time). The display will indicate a SHUTDOWN alarm.

 

[ 09 ]

Coolant Temperature Switch option (program option N.O. if the temperature switch closes the contact in case of high temperature). The Be124 will shut down the engine. The alarm is ignored during alarms Bypass time. This option can be used if the JC-6 input is already used in analog mode (for sensor) and you need extra-protection by using a temperature switch connected to a digital input.

[ 3 ]

It stops the engine after a Cooling Down time.

The display will indicate a SHUTDOWN alarm.

 

[ 10 ]

Fuel Level Switch option (program option N.O. if level switch closes the contacts in case of low fuel). The Be124 will shut down the engine after the TANK EMPTY DELAY time-out. In case you set the timer in OFF mode, the Be124 will provide a warning only. Use this option if the JC-5 input is already used in analog mode (for sensor) and you need extra-protection by using a level switch connected on a digital input.

[ 4 ]

Be124 ignores the input during the Alarms Bypass and will stop the engine after a Cooling Time. The display will indicate a SHUTDOWN alarm.

 

[ 11 ]

Idle Speed option (it holds the engine at IDLE speed). If the engine is running at nominal speed, the Be124 will open the GCB and orders the governor to run at IDLE speed. Vice versa. Be124 will run the engine at nominal speed and will close the GCB.

[ 5 ]

Warning Input Mode. The display will indicate a WARNING alarm. The engine will continue to run,

 

[ 12 ]

Remote Engine Start. Be124 monitors the input only in ‘AUTO’ mode (see 2.4). If you program option N.O., the engine will start when you connect the input to battery minus. Be124 stops the engine when you open the switch. Program the option N.C. if you want to reverse the logic.

[ 6 ]

As above but the Be124 ignores the input during the Alarms Bypass Timing.

 

[ 13 ]

Remote Genset Start (It starts the engine and enables the GCB). Be124 monitors the input only in AUTO mode. If you program option N.O., the engine will start when you connect the input to battery minus. Be124 opens the GCB and stops the engine when you open the switch. Program the option N.C. if you want to reverse the logic.

 

CONFIGURABLE OUTPUT OPTIONS

 

Use the [ ↑ ] or [ ↓] arrow to select this menu from the [OEM PARAMETERS]. Push the [→] arrow to enter the menu. Be124 features programmable Output 1 & 2. The following table indicates the factory settings. You can modify the settings according to your needs. The Be124, in this case, will open a menu driven screen to guide you through the saving procedure.
