MEP002A-MEP003A Auto-Remote Starter Kit

$369.99

The MEP002A-MEP003A Auto-Remote Starter Kit is a great add-on for your MEP military diesel generator set. It will allow remote start with the flip off a switch or it can be connected to an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) for automatic starts. The MEP002A-MEP003A auto-remote starter kit has the following features which can be set with the DIP switch on the board:

  • DIP Switch 1: Choose day-tank fuel mode or auxiliary fuel tank mode (Note: the auxiliary fuel source fills the day-tank and the day-tank feeds the engine.)
  • DIP Switch 2: Warm up Time 1 min or 5 min (This is the time delay before the Relay “Power On” is activated. This Relay switches the Control Voltage to the 3 Phase Contactor “On” and connect the LOAD to the Generator)
  • DIP Switch 3: Cool Down 2 min, 6 min or 10 min (This is the time delay after the Relay “Power On” is disengaged, shutting off the Control Voltage to the 3 Phase Contactor removing the LOAD from the Generator and therefor allowing the unit to cool down)
  • DIP Switch 4: Pre-heat Time determined by ambient air temperature or fixed time (See table below)
  • DIP Switch 5: Pre-heat Time 15 sec or 45 sec [if DIP Switch 4 is set to fixed time] ( This setting is for the case that the Generator is operated in a controlled environment i.e. Building, Garage etc)

The auto-remote kit will automatically shut down and display a light indicator in the event of a Oil Pressure or Overheat situation, preventing the generator set from automatically restarting. The auto-remote kit can easily be reset, once the issues leading to the low oil pressure or overheat situation have been remedied.

The installation is not difficult for the do-it-yourself-er. GMG can also install the basic kit if you purchase your generator from GMG.
