In the age of modern data communication and energy systems it is always important to in-clude the power generator into existing control and regulation systems. With their xControl Fischer Panda now provides a very efficient and customer-friendly control for their asynchro-nous generators with fixed speed which have been on the market for more than 25 years.
The xControl highlights the use of components from the automobile industry, it is simple and quick to install and features the new SAE J1939 communication interface. The whole pack-age is completed with an intuitive control interface and different configuration possibilities including an error memory.
With immediate effect, this control is available for all generators in the 6 - 12kW performance class; the 15 - 25kW performance class is almost ready for series-production.
The operator can switch between various languages on the operating panel and receives current status information about the generator. Via an optional communication interface such messages can be easily transferred to another information system of the boat by means of the SAE J1939 protocol.
Further settings are available in the "Service Menu" in the event of a failure or during servic-ing. The operator panel and other devices such as fuel pump, emergency stop, additional pumps or switches and additional remote control panels can be easily connected to the gen-erator.
The new xControl sets a further milestone in the generator development of Fischer Panda.
