The BE1-GSM-PANEL and BE124-GSM-PANEL are GSM based generator control panels. The panels include relays, fuses, terminal blocks and a modem. It is about a PLUG-AND-PLAY ready for use generator panels. You can connect them to any generator and engine with electric start. Be1 is ideal for small size generators. The Be124 is mandatory for high-tech or industrial application. To find out more you can browse the specification of the Be1 and Be124 genset controllers. These control panels are made of high quality POLY-CARBONATE. All components inside are coated and protected against the elements. The ingress protection is IP65. These panel can be connected to 12V or 24V batteries. The BE124 panel directly interfaces with CANbus engines.

GSM Based Engine Auto Start Be1 Kit

The BE1-GSM-KIT and BE124-GSM-KIT are GSM based generator control Kits. You are required to add relays, fuses, terminal blocks and a plastic or metallic box. Each kit includes the genset controller, the Be16 SMS decoder and a MODEM. You can understand better the specifications of the genset controller by opening the Be1 and Be124 tutorial pages. For each kit we provide instruction for setting up. We recommend that you follow our recommended wiring diagram. It is a good practice to arrange all components in an IP65 plastic o metal box. The kit includes all cables as well. Standard length is one meter.

About Bernini Design Genset Controllers

You may wish to know, - what are Genset Controllers or, (without using such industry contractions)  'Generator Control Systems' and what do they do? Taken as a units, they encompasses intelligent electronic controllers, of any form, that integrate  3-Phase Mains Failure Control Modules,  Circuit Breaker Controllers, Alternator Monitoring Modules, Engine Control & Monitoring Modules and a Serial Data Interfaces. Generator control systems must provide clear visual indication by means of LEDs and Displays for all supervised parameters and alarms. A chosen Bernini Design Genset Controller features a range of programmable settings (from a minimum of 10 up to several hundreds) and is engineered to comply with international standards recommendations. Some of our genset controllers feature RS485 and CANBUS in order to communicate with engines equipped with ECUs (Electronic Control Unit according to the SAE-1939 standard). Complex genset controllers may include all modules indicated above (example BeK3, Be2K-Plus). Simple genset controllers may include some of them (Be142, Be1,Be24....) or simply only one of them (Be72). This affects the total size and weight of the Genset controllers. The Bernini Design Genset Controllers operate reliably in a range of environments, from minus 30 up to 70 degree Celsius. In some situations LCD displays (Liquid Crystal Display) are not recommended at the extremes of this range. As a matter of fact it is quite difficult to obtain good readings below 15 degrees Celsius on an LCD Display. 

The majority of the applications for Genset Controllers find a convenient mounting place directly on the frame of a Diesel Generator. In this case the genset controller must be both rugged and vibration proof (all Bernini Design Genset Controllers satisfy this requirement). In some case the genset controllers are connected with a separation as much as several hundreds meters from the Genset itself. This is not an issue of concern since that all Bernini Design generator control systems feature a rugged RS485 serial interface, allowing you to drive a twisted cable length as distant as 1000 metres.

Genset controllers versus AMF controllers

First of all: what an AMF Controller is. An AMF (Automatic Mains Failure) controller is the ideal choice in cases where you have to control a Genset that is connected to the Mains in a standby configuration. In other words a system that is normally waiting for a failure of the Mains Power. A panel fitted with AMF controller manages, in a fully automatic way, the connection assignment of the LOAD to MAINS or GENERATOR. The panel includes an automatic battery charger and a set of electronic circuit boards complete with power relays that interface directly with the engine. The AMF controller is conveniently tasked with driving the Power Circuit breakers or Switch-gear.

 

AMF controllers are a sort of 'specialized genset controllers'

Despite the fact that the power configuration and general arrangement is the same for all panels, the input output lines for the engine connection and ancillary equipment depends on the type of controller fitted into the panel. Ancillary devices are normally provided, example: RS485 serial interface, remote control, monitoring systems, Modems, Internet connection and so on. The available  sizes on the market are normally in the range 10-1000kVA. A normal house or big villa needs as much as 9kVA of power. So in other words we can say that an AMF controller is a form of 'specialized genset controller' more suited for Automatic Mains Failure Panels.

About Genset Controllers with Remote Monitoring

Bernini Design highest priority is providing a wide range of solutions for the generator manufacturers. You can find here the links to generator monitoring tutorial pages. The Genset Controllers Be1, Be124, BeK3 and Be2KP feature RS485 serial interface that allows you various power generator monitoring solutions.
