PowerCommand Digital Control Technology

For over a decade, Cummins Power Generation has been the industry leader in power system integrated designs. All major components of our systems — the engine, alternator, generator sets, transfer switches and control systems — are manufactured by Cummins.

This integral approach–what we call the Power of One — gives you peace of mind for reliable, trouble-free standby power operation.


When you choose PowerCommand systems, you benefit t from the advantages of a fully-integrated system:Cummins Digital Controls

  • Streamlined specifying
  • Easier installation
  • Higher reliability
  • Faster maintenance
  • 24/7 service and support
  • Seamless communication and operation

 

Whatever your power needs...

Standby or prime, simple or complex, paralleling or non-paralleling, on the grid or off — Cummins Power Generation offers a complete range of controls to enhance your power system.

Premium control system reliability. Integrating multiple control components into a single control package reduces the number of controls, the number of components in the controls and the number of connections.

Digital voltage regulation. Fast, stable output voltage through varying environmental conditions. Flexible for specific application tailoring.

Digital governing with smart starting. Integrated fuel ramping limits black smoke and improves frequency stability on cold starts and optimizes cold-weather starting.

Generator set monitoring. Comprehensive monitoring of the engine, alternator and auxiliary equipment provides the critical information necessary to manage generator operation and maintain system reliability.

Environmental protection.Genset-mounted controls survive vibration, temperature extremes, electrical transients and other harsh conditions.

Remote monitoring. Easy, flexible remote monitoring and control.

Advanced serviceability. Operating panels include all critical information and set-up capability. InPower™, a PC-based service tool, allows fast problem diagnosis and more convenient testing and service.

Certifications. All controls are designed, manufactured, tested and certified to comply with relevant UL, NFPA, ISO, IEC, CSA and CE standards
Generator set controls For non-paralleling applications:

 

PowerStart 0500:-Cummins Power Start

Cummins PowerStart™ PS0500 control is a microprocessor based generator set (UPTO 125 KVA) monitoring and control system. The control provides a simple operator interface to the generator set, manual and remote start/ stop control, shutdown fault indication, and an LCD hour counter.

The integration of all functions into a single control system provides enhanced reliability and performance compared to conventional generator set control systems.This control has been designed and tested to meet harsh environment in which gensets are typically applied.

 

PowerCommand 1302:-Cummins Power Command

The 1302 Control is a microprocessor-based generator set (125 TO 250KVA)monitoring, metering, and control system. The control provides a simple operator interface to the generator set, digital voltage regulation, digital engine speed governing, start / stop control, 12V/24V battery operation and generator set protective functions.

The integration of all functions into a single control system provides enhanced reliability and performance compared to conventional generator set control systems.

 

PowerCom® controller:-Cummins Power Command Controller

A Cummins manufactured microprocessor based genset (From 320kVA to 625kVA )controller for metering, monitoring, protecting and electronic governing of the engine.

The integration of all functions into a single control system provides enhanced reliability and performance compared to conventional generator set control systems.

 

Generator set controls For solo and paralleling applications: -

PCC 3300:-Cummins PCC 3300

The Power Commandgenset control is suitable for use on a wide range of gensets (FROM 750 KVA ONWARDS) in paralleling as well as solo applications. The Power Command control is compatible with shunt or PMG excitation style.

It is suitable for use with reconnectable or non-reconnectable generators, and it can be configured for any frequency, voltage and power connection from 120-600 VAC line-to-line, or 601-45,000 VAC with external PT. Power for this control system is derived from the genset starting batteries. The control functions over a voltage range from 8 VDC to 30 VDC.

Features:-

  • Full authority engine communications (where applicable) - Provides communication and control with the Engine Control Module (ECM).
  • AmpSentry™ protection, Genset monitoring, Digital genset metering (AC and DC)
  • Genset battery monitoring system to sense and warn against a weak battery condition.
  • Configurable for single or three phase AC metering.
  • Genset protection – Protects engine and alternator.
  • Real time clock for fault and event time stamping.
