Murphy engine micro-controller A91
A completely unattended startup/shutdown and run controller for engine driven equipment. This user friendly, compact, state-of-the-art microprocessor based controller, covers all basic start stop operations plus other features only found on more sophisticated and expensive controllers.
The A91 is designed to operate from a 12 or 24 volt battery, and requires a magnetic sensor (pickup) for speed detection. It includes features, such as crank and rest cycles, time delay lockouts, sensing circuit for crank disconnect and overspeed, time delays before start and stop. Warmup and cool down are connected only on the WC model. Four LED’s indicate shutdown for: low lube oil, high temperature, over crank and overspeed, and are reset by turning the power off. A fifth LED for engine running indicates when crank disconnect occurs.
The micro-controller is available in several configurations and is factory programmed. Certain parameters can be field adjusted without altering the basic control program. Custom programming of the microchip is available to OEM’s and quantity orders.
The A91 is housed in a NEMA 3R enclosure with a hinged and gasketed dead front door. This weatherproof enclosure includes two 1/2 in. conduit holes, [7/8 in. (22 mm) diameter] in the bottom for input and output wiring.
All of the electrical components are installed on a “box” shaped, hinged front sub panel assembly. This working assembly can be purchased and installed in the user’s choice of enclosures.
A variety of applications can be covered with the micro-controller such as:
Standby Generator Sets
Fire/Pipeline/Emergency Flood Pumps
Municipal Fresh/Waste Water Treatment
Sewage Lift Stations
A91: For less than 5 amp current draw up to 24 VDC electric run output*
A91-S: For 10 amp current draw up to 240 VDC electric run output*
A91-WC: Same as A91—with a warmup/cooldown relay.
A91-S-WC: Same as A91-S—with a warmup/cooldown relay.
Any Model -LC: Less weatherproof enclosure.
*Run output is the voltage and current required for an ignition system, fuel valve, or solenoid actuator that allows the engine to run.
The A91 Series combines the advantages of solid state microprocessor control logic with the dependability of Murphy’s experience in Engine Automation Systems. This engine controller eliminates the need for most electromechanical logic and control relays, while providing built-in design features:
-S: Includes a relay to isolate magneto and capacitor discharge ignition systems.
-WC: Includes a relay for loading and unloading driven equipment for engine warmup and cooldown.
Power Input: 12 or 24 VDC nominal (specify).
Standby Power Consumption: <50mA.
Magnetic Pickup Input: Requires 2 V rms minimum.
Sensor Input Polarity: Negative (-).
Outputs: Five (5) open collector transistor 500 mA sink.
Two (2) relay, 5 Amp maximum at 12 or 24 VDC (sourcing).
Reverse Polarity Protection: 200 volt peak reverse voltage.
On-board Memory: 8k PROM (programmable, read only memory); data retention 10 years.
Operating Temperature Range: -20 to 140°F (-25 to 60°C).
Operating Humidity Range: 0-95% Non-Condensing
User Trip point Adjustments: Five (5) on-board potentiometers (320° turn).
Test-Off-Automatic Toggle Switch: Three position switch for:
Cycle Crank Timer: 5 crank attempts 7 seconds each; 4 rest periods 15 seconds each, before overcrank.
Overspeed Trip Point Setting: From 2500-9000 Hz.
Crank Disconnect Speed Setting: From 400-2500 Hz.
Shutdown Time Delay: 15 seconds after engine start; locks out low lube oil and high temperature.
Engine Run LED: Turns“on”when crank disconnect occurs.
Shutdown Output: Removes DC output or operates dry relay contacts for engine shutdown (depending on model used).
Start/Stop: SPDT momentary; or SPST maintained switches.
Warmup Time Delay: Field adjustable from 0-300 seconds to load the engine after warmup (model -WC only).
Cooldown Time Delay: Field adjustable from 0-300 seconds (model -WC only).
Enclosure: Weatherproof NEMA 3R.
