EDG5500 Electronic Digital Governor is designed to regulate engine speed on diesel and gas reciprocating engines. The EDG system is a suitable replacement for any mechanical governor system that needs flexibility, precision, or control of governed speed. The EDG is an integral part of a closed loop speed control system. When connected to an electric actuator and supplied with a speed sensor signal, the governor will direct the fuel system to the desired engine speed setting. The EDG is designed for industrial engine applications from generator sets, mechanical drives to pumps, or compressors
The EDG uses an advanced micro processor to support an enhanced PID control loop, user interface, and an optional J1939 CAN Bus interface. Being digital the EDG governor in not subject to analog drift.
The EDG5500 is designed to be compatible replacement for GAC’s venerable ESD5500E. The EDG’s terminal connections are virtually identical to the ESD. The mounting hole pattern and footprint is the same.
Just like the ESD5500, the EDG5500 is rugged enough to be placed in a control cabinet or engine mounted enclosure other dedicated control equipment. If water, mist, or condensation may come in contact with the controller, it should be mounted vertically to avoid water damage.
