Small Diesel Engine Controller

Key Features

  • Tested to SAE J1810 Vibration
  • RPM Input: Alternator, Mag Pick-up and Negative Side of
    Ignition Coil
  • Accomodates Most Temperatures and Pressure Senders
  • Plug and Play Installation
  • Provides Connection for Auxiliary Shut Down Switch Signals
    (Switch to Ground), Oil Level, Low Water and Others
  • Displays Data in Analogue and Digital

The Small Diesel Engine Controller provides seamless monitoring of engine's key parameters: coolant temperature, oil pressure, voltage, RPM, engine hours and alarms.

Additionally, the Controller shuts down the engine when triggered by low oil pressure, high temperature and engine over speed. The C3 Engine Controller is an ideal electronics controller for mechanically governed engine based applications.

With 7 analog inputs, 4 relay outputs combined with 3 digital inputs, 2 CAN input connections, plus a USB port the C3 allows maximum function.

The QVGA colour display can be viewed in full sunlight, the unit is totally sealed and electronically extremely durable. It
is equipped to meet the challenge of providing tough, flexible, maintenance free instrumentation in even the harshest of environments.
