Works With A Wide Range Of Diesel Engines.

Automatic engine speed control is offered on all engines, whether electronic or mechanical. This feature can adjust the engine speed to a set speed point or vary the engine speed with respect to an external 4-20mA sensor. All automatic throttling options come with adjustable engine warm up, cool down and line fill timers. This controller is suitable for use on the following engine brands: Caterpillar, Cummins, MTU, Detroit, Perkins, Deutz, Hatz, Scania, Kubota, Yanmar, JCB, Lister and various engines from Asia. Note, For engine speed control on mechanical engines, an electronic throttle actuator must be purchased separately.

Telemetry Connection Via (Satellite/GSM/GPS).

The controller's telemetry capabilities make certain you will always be connected to your asset via a smart phone, tablet or computer. You have the option of sending data to a 3G network or the option of a go-anywhere satellite network. Just choose the right modem/data package to suit your budget. PLC, RTU or SCADA users can also connect to the K27. The control panel has inbuilt data logging capabilities and captures all shutdown messages.

Multiple Engine Start/Stop Methods

Featuring both manual and automatic start modes, the K27 offers great flexibility of use at the touch of a button. In automatic mode, the K27 is able to start and stop your engine based on a number of triggers such as: single float switches, low pressure switch, telemetry/PLC module, pressure transducer and mains failure contactor. The option is yours.
