Cummins PowerStart 0600 Control Panel
Cummins PS0600 Genset Controller
The PowerStart™ 0600 control is a microprocessor-based generator set monitoring and control system. The control provides a simple operator interface to the generator set, manual and remote start/stop control and shutdown fault indication and AMF (Auto Mains Failure) functionality. The integration of all control functions into a single control provides enhanced reliability and performance compared to conventional generator set control systems. This control has been designed and tested to meet the harsh environment in which gensets are typically applied. The PowerStart™ generator set control is suitable for use on a wide range of generator sets in non-paralleling applications. It is suitable for use with reconnectable or non-reconnectable generators, can be configured for either 50 or 60 Hz and voltage and power connections from 190-600 VAC line-to-line. This control includes an intuitive operator interface that allows genset start/stop for complete genset control as well as system metering, fault annunciation, configuration and diagnostics. The interface includes seven generator set status LED lamps with both internationally accepted symbols and English text to comply with customer needs.
The interface also includes an LED backlit LCD display with tactile-feel soft-switches for easy operation and screen navigation. The manual/auto/stop switch function is integrated into the overlay of the controller. All data on the control can be viewed by scrolling through screens with the navigation keys. Screens can be viewed either by scrolling or non scrolling mode. Forward and backward navigation is also provided. The control displays the current active fault, fault occurrences and a time-ordered history of the five previous faults with respect to the real-time clock stamp & engine running time. Power for this control is derived from the generator set's starting batteries and functions over a voltage from 8VDC to 32VDC.
