The 2300 Digital Electronic Load Sharing & Speed Control is a microprocessor based hardware platform that is custom programmable to the specific needs of the application. Typically the control is used to provide speed and load control functions for reciprocating engines, or steam or gas turbines. The control consists of a single printed circuit board that is housed in a sheet metal enclosure. Both ordinary and hazardous location versions are available. The unit is intended for bulkhead mounting, and spring-loaded terminal blocks are provided for termination of field wiring. The 2300 is powered from 24 Vdc.

Integral load sensor and load sharing capabilities are available that allow the control to be programmed for a variety of power generation applications. Isochronous load sharing, KW droop, and base load operation can be provided.

The 2300 input/output (I/O) list includes:

  • 1 Generator Load Sensor
  • 3 PT Inputs & 3 CT Inputs
  • 1 Load Sharing Line
  • 1 Actuator Driver Output
  • 1 Magnetic Pickup (MPU) Input
  • 1 Analog Output
  • 2 Analog Inputs
  • 8 Discrete Inputs
  • 4 Discrete Relay Driver Outputs
  • 1 Serial COM Port (RS-232/RS-422)

The operating temperature range is –40 to +70 °C (–40 to +158 °F), and the 2300 is CE Marked and UL/CSA Listed.
