To list only a few of the many important areas where a POWERGUARD ACP300 can beneﬁt your application:
- Solar & Renewable’s type Backup Generators
- Standalone Irrigation Pumps
- Standby and Emergency Backup Generators
- Standby and Emergency Backup Pumping
- Domestic & Commercial Engine, Generator & Pumping applications
- Agricultural Pumping Applications
We designed this unique, high quality, low cost automatic control, primarily for basic engine control and reliability. In the past this form of automatic control has been very expensive, complicated to install and used more particularly in the larger installation.
The ACP300 is a very compact digital engine controller with a real time display. With a wide operating voltage range, this controller will adapt to almost all engine types such as petrol, diesel & gas machines. With its real time status display and
robust operation, the ACP300 is the obvious choice for most fully automatic starting applications.
Within the ACP300‘s programming, the installer has a vast choice of variable parameters to choose from when adapting this controller to the intended machinery. A powerful ﬂash type processor will keep the operating process safe and secure during a power down preventing any further parameter adjustments needed.
The ACP300 offers a selection of THREE secondary auxiliary outputs which can be set to do different operating tasks from momentarily acting during shut down, or to latching when a minimum desired engine speed has been reached. All parameters within the ACP300 are easily conﬁgured for optimal use.
Essential backup for a myriad of control applications, the POWERGUARD ACP300 is there to provide that piece vital support at all times. Used in conjunction with a generator, can fill the missing link with regard to Mains Failure or Essential Services applications such as:
- Computer Backup.
- UPS Applications.
- Hospital Backup.
- Medical Centres.
- Drug Refrigeration.
- Any Vital Equipment Applications.
- Standalone or Non-Supervised Running Applications.
This latest ACP300 controller has features similar to the larger backup machines, such as multiple re-starts and fully programmable tolerances including most inputs/outputs.
Just some of the standard features are:
- LCD screen shows Hours run, RPM, Battery voltage, run conditions and fault status.
- Multi attempt engine starting
- Warnings & shut down indications
- Over/Under speed protection
- Oil, temp, fail to start, shut down status
- Additional alarm, idle, speed, shut down outputs
- Easy to navigate buttons
- Local direct setup
- Off/ Auto/Manual control
- Flush mounting design
- Additional programmable auxiliary outputs
A compact & rugged controller utilising a modern PIC type micro controller design allowing the ACP300 to operate in the harsh, often high ambient site conditions. Always functioning accurately, reliably with proven durable operation, the ACP300 is offered in a variety of mounting options (application and machine dependent).
From compact weatherproof poly or metal type enclosures to direct panel & ﬂush mounting with various harness or plug-in loom options to suit ease of installation. Normally supplied as a ‘ﬁtted option’ to your new equipment, the ACP300 can also be supplied as a pre-wired kit which includes the necessary control & engine wiring harness if required for certain applications, particularly where installation is minimal and personnel are experienced.
