The generator control fpControl offers two multifunctional outputs. You can configure the function of these digital outputs in the service menu of the control panel. This is useful, for example, to extend the functionality of the generator control. For each of the two outputs several profiles are available.
You can set the generator type code in service menu of the control panel. This is necessary to adapt the generator control fpControl to different generator types.
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.
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.
With the J1939 CAN interface, you can start and stop the generator via a CAN message. In this example you will activate the automatic start mode using the proprietary PGN PROPA00 (PGN 61184) and the RPC ID 0x0012. After this you will start the generator using PROPA00 as well. But in this case using the RPC ID 0x009c.
If there is more than one J1939 CAN interface in the Fischer Panda CAN bus, each interface needs a different bus address. This is achieved by “Address Claiming”, in which the bus sharing units negotiate addresses with each other.
In some applications, it may be necessary for a CAN interface to have a fixed static address that never changes.
How does an RPC request for the serial number of a bus sharing unit work in practice with the Fischer Panda J1939 CAN Bus?
