Setting the xControl servo motor – V1505

Introduction to the topic

You can set the minimum and maximum position of the servo lever on Fischer Panda generators with xControl generator control and Kubota V1505 engine. This is necessary when starting up for the first time and after replacing a defective servo motor or a defective xControl generator control.

Setting the MIN Position

  • Mount the servo lever on the servo motor so that the lever is horizontal (Fig. 1).
Fig. 1: Servo lever mounted in a horizontal position
  • Use the left nut (Fig. 2) to adjust the position of the engine throttle so that there is an air gap between the throttle and the stop lever (Fig. 3).

Setting the MAX Position

  • Switch on the xControl panel.
  • Call up the service menu.
  • Enter service password.
  • Select the item »actuator setup« in the service menu.
  • Set the value »max. position« in the »actuator setup« so that an air gap remains between the engine throttle and the upper stop (Fig. 4).

Software concept

The xControl »actuator setup« consists of two pages. Here you can adjust the »max. position« and the »min. position« for the servo motor. You can save your adjustments on an additional page.

SoftkeyFunction
Decreases the current position “curr. pos.” by 500.
Decreases the current position “curr. pos.” by 50.
+Increases the current position “curr. pos.” by 50.
++Increases the current position “curr. pos.” by 500.
okConfirm the current value of “curr. pos.” and skip to the next page of the actuator setup. A changed value will be saved in the EEPROM in the step “Save settings?”.
skipSkip to the next page of the actuator setup, changed values are not stored in the EEPROM
cancelLeave actuator setup, changed values are not stored in the EEPROM.
HardkeyFunction
Use the panel’s arrow-up key to move up through the softkeys on one side of the actuator setup.
Use the arrow-down key to move down through the softkeys on one side of the actuator setup.
Use the start/stop key to execute the action of the selected softkey.

Parameters
min. positionPosition of the servomotor at idle.
max. positionPosition of the servomotor at full load.
save settings?Saves the adjusted positions of the four previous pages in the EEPROM.
saved pos.Position value stored in EEPROM.
curr. pos.Current value of the position, you can adjust this value live using the (+/-) softkeys.
RPMCurrent revolution speed of the diesel engine in [RPM]. If you adjust the position of the servo motor while the generator is running, you can directly observe the effect on the revolution speed.
