SmartGen | SmartGen Pump Control Module with Cummins

Recently, SmartGen APC715 with Dongfeng Cummins P (pump) type ECU QSZ13-P550, and the pump perfectly realized speed regulation and stabilized water pressure. The overall effect is good, and the unit operation is stable and reliable, which has been praised by customers again!

APC715 pump control module is used to control the engine pump unit to realize automatic start/stop, data measurement, alarm protection, and “Four Remote” functions (remote control, remote measure, remote communication, remote debugging). The control module has a speed adjustment function to stabilize the pump outlet/inlet pressure by adjusting the engine speed. In addition to the conventional Engine Speed Governor (GOV) interface, the control module also has CANBUS (SAE J1939) interface, which can control various ECU or non-ECU engine pumps.

APC715 pump control module adopts large screen liquid crystal (LCD) graphic display, which can display Chinese, English and other languages. The working parameters of the engine and pump can be directly displayed on the screen. It is reliable and easy to use. The pump unit control module is designed to adjust the outlet pressure by adjusting the engine speed, and finally stabilize it to the set rated value.

“Adjust Speed Control” is divided into auto control and manual control. Auto Adjust Speed: Under this mode, during the unit is normal running, the control module will adjust the speed regulating objects (outlet pressure/inlet pressure) set by the user according to the preset to rated speed and maintain its steady automatically.

The “Auto Adjust Speed” can be divided into relay adjust speed, GOV adjust speed and CAN adjust speed.

Relay Adjust Speed: Control the engine servo motor simply by using speed raise relay and speed drop relay.
GOV Adjust Speed: Control the electronic speed regulator simply by using GOV analog signal. Users should set parameters according to the actual situation as different regulators have different parameters.
CAN Adjust Speed: Control the ECU engine speed simply by using CAN interface. Parameters setting and adjustment method are same as GOV. SW1 should set as 5.0 and SW2 as 2.0 while adjusting.

SmartGen’s pump unit control module has verified its strong strength and reliable performance in the actual use time after time. Of course, we will also bring you more, better and finer product experience and service through our continuous efforts to reward you for your continued support. Please wait and see!
