SEDEMAC's GC2599 is a unique genset controller, which combines functionality of AMF generator controls, fixed & variable speed governing and BTS backup battery monitoring, into one powerful fuel-saving controller.

The GC2599 controller provides variable speed governing feature along with an option to switch over 0% droop governing, with the help of SEDEMAC's rotary actuator. In addition to monitoring engine safety & electrical load, GC2599 controller also offers BTS battery voltage monitoring feature which results in significant diesel OPEX saving.

  • BTS (Base Transceiver Station) battery monitoring and cyclic start/stop modes for low fuel consumption.
  • Offers load based variable speed governing for fuel saving
  • Easy switch over from variable speed to fixed speed governing mode

It also supports paralleling of gensets with speed bias/ paralleling support. In this mode, GC2599 controller maintains the engine speed in accordance to the speed bias signal provided by 0-5V analog input.

  • Backlit and full graphics LCD with power saving feature provides prolonged battery life
  • Supports Auto (AMF, remote start / stop, auto exercise and cyclic) and manual modes
  • Provides variable speed governing as per load on genset versus engine RPM configuration
  • Monitors 1-ph/3- ph voltage, frequency and load current for generator and mains; monitors 1-Ph / 3- Ph power factor for generator
  • Supports the battery charging alternator I/O interface
  • Versatile software capable of saving "events" during operation (event log for 100 events with Real Time Clock (RTC) stamps and engine run hour information)
  • Incremental counters for engine start, engine trips, engine run hour, genset kWh, kVAh, kVArh
  • Measures mains kW, kVA, kVAr, kWh, kVAh, and kVArh, etc.
  • Supports parameter configuration at customers sites
  • Access to each parameter through PC software or control keys
  • Built-in electronic governor module that directly connects to SEDEMAC's Rotary Actuators* to guarantee ISO8528:G3 class performance for 0% droop mode
