RSM72 & LPM72 Control Modules for Local & Remote Operation

Optional Module for all BetaSet/BetaGen

Compatible for all generating sets including those specified with electrical insulated return engine starting. Comprises of a RSM72 (remote start module) with a separate hours run meter for local installation and a LPM72 (lamp start module) for remote installation enabling full generating set control from two locations – in lieu of the standard module.

The main RSM72 is PCB based with engine start-stop buttons and alarms with protection*. Complete with manual push buttons for automatic engine start with timed pre-heat and engine stop, LED indicators for DC on, low lubricating oil pressure* and high water coolant temperature*.

*Automatic shutdown protection on fault function.

The secondary LPM72 remote module is visually identical and is interconnected to the main RSM72 by twin data ports/cables, this enables generating set control and engine monitoring from two separate locations. The modules are supplied loose with a 3m interconnection cable included for the RSM72, the required “custom” lengths of interconnection cable for coupling the LPM72 to the RSM72 are not included but are available at additional cost.

The DSE3110 is utilised as a Manual or Auto Start Module for single generating set applications and provide advanced engine monitoring and protection features. It includes a back-lit icon LCD display which clearly shows the status of the engine at all times.

The module includes fixed and flexible outputs as well as configurable inputs making this product ideal for a wide variety of applications. The module can either be programmed using the front panel or by using the DSE Configuration Suite PC software. Complete as standard with engine control and monitoring functions for manual engine start, automatic engine start with timed heat and engine stop, an hours run meter, low lubricating oil pressure*, high water coolant temperature* and power save mode.

*Automatic shutdown protection on fault function.

Additionally, subject to generating set specification/installation is able to monitor the following parameters:

Engine: under speed/over speed, starter battery alternator no charge, low fuel level.
Generator: under voltage/over voltage, over frequency/under frequency.
Configurable for:

  • Magnetic pick-up/alternator sensing (must be specified at time of order).
  • PC compatibility-USB.
  • 6 digital inputs.
  • 2 outputs on magnetic pick up/alternator sensing.

This module is for local use only and cannot be interfaced with a secondary remote lamp start module. The module is supplied loose with 3m of interconnection cable included, “custom” lengths of interconnection cable are available at additional cost.

Face Plate Dimensions: 99mm x 79mm

Aparture Cut Out Dimensions: 80mm x 68mm DIN

DSE7310 MK II Control Module & DSE7310 MK II Display Module for Local & Remote Operation

Optional Module for all BetaSet/BetaGen

The DSE7310 MK II is an Auto Start Control Module suitable for a wide variety of single, diesel generating set applications. Monitoring an extensive number of engine parameters, the module will display warnings, shutdown and engine status information on the back-lit LCD screen, illuminated LEDs, remote PC and via SMS text alerts (requires optional external modem). The module includes USB, RS232 and RS485 ports as well as dedicated DSENet® terminals for system expansion.

The module is compatible with electronic (CAN) and non-electronic (magnetic pick-up/alternator sensing) engines and offers an extensive number of flexible inputs, outputs and extensive engine protections so the system can be easily adapted to meet the most demanding industry requirements.

The extensive list of features includes enhanced event and performance monitoring, remote communications, PLC functionality and dual mutual standby to reduce engine wear. The module can be easily configured using the DSE Configuration Suite PC software. Selected front panel editing is also available.

The DSE7310 MK II has engine control and monitoring functions including manual engine start, automatic engine start with timed pre-heat, engine stop, engine hours run meter, over speed, low lubricating oil pressure* and high water coolant temperature*.

Up to three DSE7310 MK II display modules can be connected to a DSE7310 MK II control module, each can be positioned up to a maximum distance of 1km away. Each display module will remotely offer exactly the same instrumentation, control and monitoring capabilities as the host control module, including starting and stopping of the engine*.

*Automatic shutdown protection on fault function.

Additionally subject to the generating set specification/installation the DSE7310 MK II is additionally able to monitor the following parameters:

Engine: under/over speed, starter battery alternator no charge, fuel usage monitor and low level alarm.
Generator: under/over voltage, under/over frequency, power as kW h, kV Ar, kV Ah, kV Ar h & 3-phase sensing.|
Configurable for:

  • Display languages
  • Magnetic pick-up/alternator sensing (must be specified at time of order).
  • 9 inputs and 8 outputs.
  • 3 maintenance alarms.
  • Multiple date and time run scheduler.
  • True dual mutual standby with load balancing timer enabling two set systems to be configured to allow for redundancy or balancing run hours.
  • Load switching, load shedding and dummy load outputs.
  • 250 event logs.

NB: This control module is offered as standard with Beta Marine Bespoke Generating Sets, whilst it is also available for use with all BetaSet / BetaGen models please note that not all the parameter monitoring listed above will be available.

The DSE7310 MK II display module is designed to integrate with the DSE7310 MK II Auto Start control module. Up to three display modules can be connected to the host control module, and can be positioned to a maximum distance of 1km away. The remote displays offer exactly the same instrumentation, control and monitoring capabilities as the host control module, including starting and stopping of the engine. All remote displays connected to the same system, will show the same information at any one time, while the host controller is able to display different information.

The modules are simple to operate and feature the same user-friendly menu layout as the host module. All communications and configuration are done via the host module only. The remote devices simply mirror the configuration of the host module, making the system quick and easy to install.

The modules are supplied loose, the required “custom” lengths of interconnection cables are not included but are available at additional cost.
