fpControl – Start without inverter

In order to check whether the inverter causes a fault, it is often a first test to start the generator without an inverter. The function “Start without inverter” (start w/o inverter) is an additional start function for this use case. It simulates the engine revolution so that the generator can be started without inverter in case of service.

Adjusting the parameters for the servomotor

The servo motor moves between the position in which the generator is stopped (stop position) and the position in which the generator operates at full load. In the application software, default values for the stop position, the start position, the idle position and the position at full load are stored depending on the generator type. You can adjust the default values for these four positions in the “actuator-setup” menu.

Direct software update of bus modules

To update bus modules on the Fischer Panda CAN bus, you usually transfer the software update files to the generator control first. Only the generator control can distribute updates to other bus modules.
With the direct software update, in this tutorial we introduce you to a method, you can use to update individual bus modules directly. You will use the fpControl panel to send one or more update files directly to a bus module.
