Some MFDs are able to display generator data like AC voltage, AC current, AC frequency and AC power using the NMEA 2000® or J1939 network. Fischer Panda Generators equipped with xControl, iControl2 or fpControl can be connected with an NMEA 2000® network using the »Communication Interface CI – NMEA 2000®« (fpControl CI-NMEA 2000®). In this way, the generator data can be displayed on the MFD. But not all MFDs support all relevant PGNs.
With generator control fpControl, the generator types are classified into three groups. The generators are assigned to a generators group according to the type of technology. Each group is assigned a number range. See a list of available generator types.
Generators equipped with xControl, iControl2 or fpControl can be connected to the VE.CAN from Victron Energy. The connection is established via the »fpControl CAN Interface – SAE J1939«.
