THE Be1 GENERATOR REMOTE START FRONT PANEL DESCRIPTION

The front panel of the Be1 generator auto start is extremely intuitive and thanks to the double set of start-stop buttons, we guarantee the Be1 for at least 2 million start-stop operations. The Be1 is a user-friendly generator AUTO START MODULE and by adding only a few automotive relays you can make an auto-start panel. The Be1 interfaces with analogue and digital sensors.

You can use Be1 to refurbish the control panel of a gas, gasoline, or diesel engine. The RS485 serial interface supports the MODBUS protocol and the software is free of charge. Thanks to the high-quality gasket the Be1 features IP54 ingress protection. The START/STOP pushbuttons are redundant and you can expect a long life even in harsh environments.

The avionics-grade' display and LED indicators will offer you full visibility between -30 to 70 degrees Celsius. 


THE Be1 GENERATOR REMOTE START CIRCUIT DIAGRAM DESCRIPTION

This generator auto start is the ideal choice when you have to automatically control a gasoline generator. It interfaces with the Flywheel generator in a way to provides a proper crank termination. You have two possibilities to stop the gasoline engine: STOP SOLENOID or FUEL SOLENOID.

GASOLINE PORTABLE GENERATOR REMOTE START KIT

 

This output energizes when you want to stop the engine. The contact of the relay will close to ground the BI (ignition) terminal on the spark generator remote start. You can easily find this terminal because it is normally connected to the STOP switch on the body of the gasoline generator.  In other words, the spark plug will no longer work; the engine will stop. You can adjust the time for STOP SOLENOID.  If you feel more comfortable using a FUEL SOLENOID, you can connect a relay to output [1]. The engine can run only when the FUEL SOLENOID output is active. We can say that this is an 'ENERGIZED TO RUN' output. The best solution is to use both: STOP SOLENOID & FUEL SOLENOID. The start circuit is quite similar to a diesel engine. You are required to connect the pilot driver to the output [2].

UNIVERSAL GENERATOR REMOTE START WIRING DIAGRAM

if you can not connect the flywheel generator, the Be1 features adjustable settings to terminate the crank from the Voltage and frequency of the GENERATOR. You can also connect a pickup to get an accurate reading of the rotational speed. Also in this case do not worry about it. The Be1 can calculate the RPM from the alternator frequency.  You only have to set up the number of poles of the alternator. The connection for sensors, analogue or digital, is indicated in the wiring diagram as well.

Be1 MANUAL MODE

A) - Push one of the [ I ] push buttons until the display indicates the message [MAn] and all LEDs illuminate; release the button.

B) - Push one of the [ I ] push buttons until the engine starts. When the engine is running, the green LED 'START-ON' will illuminate.

C) - To stop the engine, push the [ O ] push button until the [StOP] message appears on display.

If the engine has already stopped, it is possible to cancel the STOP sequence by pressing the [ O ] push button. Push [ O ] when the engine is not running if you want to shut down the panel.


GENERATOR REMOTE START: THE AUTO MODE

Push the [AUTO] push button until the yellow LED 'AUTO' on the button illuminates. The engine starts when you activate the input configured as 'Generator Remote Start Input'. In the same way, the engine stops when you deactivate the 'Generator Remote Start input'. In the AUTO mode of operation, the Be-1 will periodically test the engine if you properly programmed the scheduler or the so-called 'Periodic Auto Start'. During this test, the yellow LED AUTO will continue to blink. In AUTO mode, the Be1 controller can start the engine when the battery is low. You must set the low battery voltage threshold and high battery voltage stop threshold. After configuring the output with the LOW BATT start option, you are required to make a connection between the output and remote start input


.Please note that Be1 stores, in a 'NON VOLATILE MEMORY', the AUTO mode of operation status. This means that in case you remove and re-apply the DC supply, the Be1 will automatically enter the AUTO mode of operation.


To exit the AUTO mode of operation, you can push the  [AUTO] push button for a short time; the Be1 will enter the MANUAL mode of operation. You can directly push one of the [0] push buttons.  In this case, the Be1 will directly enter the OFF mode of operation.


Be1 ALARM MONITORING

The Be1 generator remote start kit features Shutdowns (the engine stops) and Warnings (the engine will continue to run). It informs you about an alarm via:

A) - a general indication of alarm using the message [ALAr.] on the display

B) - 4 configurable outputs with several options for each

C) - 4 LEDs indicating Oil pressure, Temperature, Failure to start, and Over-speed shutdown.

D) - coded display messages about warnings and shutdowns

E) - a [ACK] push button to silence the Horn

To browse the alarm memory push the [→] pushbutton. To display the details of the alarm, push the [? ] push button. To clear the alarm from the panel, remove the cause of the alarm and then press the [ O ] push button.


Be1 BELT ALTERNATOR MONITORING

The generator remote start module automatically terminates the crank when the engine starts running. The Be1 provides an exciting current for the charger alternator.  When the engine is not running, the voltage of the terminal D+/WL is 0V (in your car, before starting the engine, the red 'DYNAMO LAMP' turns on).

Generator remote start Kit Belt Driven Alternator Monitoring

As soon as the Be1controller starts the engine, a voltage appears in the D+/WL terminal and when the engine runs normally, the voltage of the D+/WL terminal increases by up to 13-14 V (in your car, having one side of the lamp connected to the battery plus, the red 'DYNAMO LAMP' in the dashboard turns off ). The safest point to terminate the crank is between 6V to 10V. In the case of a gasoline engine, the belt alternator is not normally available. In this case, you are required to connect the engine running detect circuit in a 'floating mode'.


The Be1 HISTORY LOG

This auto-start kit features an Event History memory of the last 100 shutdowns. To read the contents of the Event History, follow the instructions:

A) – Remove the DC power supply (battery voltage)

B) – Push and hold the [?] pushbutton

C) – Apply the power supply (holding the [?] pushbutton)

D) – Release the [?] pushbutton when the display turns on

E) – The display will indicate the last event via the message [E 01]. Push the [?] push button to display the name of the Event (see table 4.10 in the installation manual)
