External control by dry contact
This command mode can be used alone or with all types of Supervision.
Here it is the generator which comes to control the load directly on the load bank. Load and ventilation control is available on the terminal block: status information for the power contactors and the motor contactor.
Also available on terminal block:
- Head circuit breaker status
- Ventilation contact feedback
- Remote emergency stop
External control via MODBUS
Modbus TCP / IP Communication is a language protocol between the generator set and the load bank PLC.
The load bank will be controlled by an external control system via an exchange table.
This command mode requires the Supervision command in “Premium” mode.
Automatic ballasting and deballasting included
The automatic ballasting / unloading option allows, via a current transformer, to regulate the load of the bank according to the value of the current consumed by the installation. This variation can be managed with respect to the current delivered by the generator set or with respect to the consumption of the network.
The point is to maintain a minimum load on your generator set during operation to prevent premature wear.
The use of automatic ballast / deballast mode is available via a supervision type control mode.
The supply and installation of the current transformer is not included, a connection terminal block is provided for this purpose in the electrical compartment of the load bank.
