Engine Parameters

Notes

 

PRE-LUBE TIME                        

                          1 sec

CRANK TIME

                         5 sec

(limits 1-15 seconds)

It energizes the Pre-lube pump (option [14] table 11.9). It could be used to delay the crank if necessary. CRANK TIME limits the coupling time of the starter motor.

 

 

CRANK REST TIME                        

                           5 sec

START ATTEMPTS

                             3

(3-15 secs /3-15 att.)

These parameters define the start sequence of the engine: rest time and maximum number of attempts.

 

CRANK VDC                        

                      8.0 VDC

CRANK VAC

                        100 AC

(3-30VDC /60-990VAC)

The Be124 terminates the crank when voltage of the charger alternator or voltage of the generator rises above the setting. The option OFF disable the monitoring.

 

CRANK HZ                        

                      40.0 Hz

CRANK RPM

                        OFF

(20.0-599.9 /100-800)

The Be124 terminates the crank when frequency  or speed of the engine rises above the setting.

The option OFF disable the monitoring. The CRANK RPM setting enables the PICK-UP failure alarm.

 

PREGLOW TIME                      

                       OFF

PREGLOW MODE

                       1

(1sec-15mins)

Choose (figure 11.4) the proper working logic for Pre-glow. Option [12] is provided to drive the pre-glow relay by a configurable output as indicated in table 11.9.

 

WARM UP TIME                   

                       15 sec

COOLING TIME

                   15 sec

(limits 0-15mins)

The Generator Circuit Breaker (GCB) will automatically close after [WARM UP TIME].

[COOLING TIME]: the Engine will automatically stop after set cooling time.

 

GAS  PURGE                     

                       1 sec

STOP SOLENOID

                      2 sec

(1-15sec /1s-15mins)

[GAS  PURGE] allows you the use of gas-fuelled engine (see option [11] on table 11.9).

 

[STOP SOLENOID]: you are requested to program an output with option [23] (see table 11.9).

 

BELT BREAK                     

                         8.0 VDC

FAIL TO STOP

                           OFF

(limits 3.0-30.0Vdc)

Setting to detect a belt break condition. The option OFF disables the alarm.

[FAIL TO STOP]: option ON

triggers the alarm in case Be124 fails to stop the engine.

 

ALARMS BYPASS                    

                        10 sec

HIGH COOLANT SD

                        OFF

(2-99 secs / 1-250°C)

The [ALARM BYPASS] timer allows Be124 to ignore the Oil Pressure /Temperature & Configurable Input alarms (see 11.8).

[HIGH COOLANT SD] The engine stops if temperature rises above the limit.

 

HIGH COOLANT WRN                    

                               OFF

LOW COOLANT WRN

                                OFF

(limits 1-250 °C)

Engine (coolant) Temperature.

You can set a Low / High limit (source: Canbus or analog input JC6).

 

                      note (*) 

 

LOW BAR WARNING

                          OFF

LOW BAR SHUTDOWN

                         OFF

(limits 0.1-20.0 Bar)

You can set a Low Oil Pressure warning and/or shutdown. If you use a Pressure Switch, program the parameters to [OFF].     note (*)                

 

HIGH OIL °C  WRN                    

                          OFF

HIGH OIL °C   SD

                          OFF

(Limits 1-250 °C)

Oil Temperature settings. The measurement must be provided by Canbus.

 

HIGH AUX °C  WRN

                           OFF

HIGH AUX °C SD

                          OFF

(limits 1-250°C)

You can monitor an Auxiliary Temperature by setting a warning and/or a shutdown. You are required to connect a sensor to terminal JC6 (supposing that is not used for the Coolant Temperature).     note (*)

note (*) the alarm is ignored during [ALARMS BYPASS] (see 11.4.9). If you use an ECU, the Be124 will pickup the measurements from Canbus. If a non-ECU engine is used, you can connect a sensor to inputs JC6 & JC7 (see 27.0). If the sensors are are not available, set the alarms to [OFF] in a way to enable the digital mode (you can connect a Pressure/Temperature switch to protect the engine).
