ASCO 5101 Engine Start Monitoring System
Monitor Back-up Generator Start Signals and Prevent Outages
An NEC®-compliant engine-generator starts automatically when it receives a start signal from an automatic transfer switch. If signaling wires are damaged, an engine will not receive the start signal needed to begin supplying mission-critical power. Without Engine Start Circuit monitoring and control, facility operators will never know when wiring is compromised, placing the facility at risk for an outage.
- Status LEDs for each channel are provided on the Generator module allowing for quick assessment of
- system status (channel disabled, wiring fault, engine start inactive, engine start active).
- ATS module is compatible with any contact-based engine start signal.
- Both modules mount on standard 35 millimeter DIN rails.
- The generator module monitors up to 8 ATSs. Each channel can be individually enabled or disabled.
- The generator module provides two Form C contacts, one for engine start and one for alarming.
- Uses one module at each engine, and one module at each ATS. Installs on standard engine control wiring, easing deployment on new and existing backup power equipment.
- Interfaces with the ASCO 5705
- 8-Device Annunciator to provide real-time email messages, remote alarms, and Internet access to critical power
- information and controls.
