Monico’s new Programmable Remote Annunicator leverages the capabilities of the CDL Gateway™, the only product available that can interpret Caterpillar®’s proprietary engine protocols, and syncs those capabilities with an HMI to create an annunciator panel for Caterpillar® engines and gensets. The Annunciator can also be used with a J1939 Gateway™ or Custom Protocol Converter to provide advanced annunciation on any industrial engine.
The Programmable Remote Annunciator is a 6 inch touch screen specifically programmed to annunciate general events on industrial engines and can be used over Ethernet or Serial networks. The standard product shows events for Common Warnings and Shutdowns. What makes this annunciator stand apart is the included HMI screen which can also be viewed remotely via a virtual HMI. The standard product also includes quick reference to basic engine and generator data. When an event occurs, the associated “General Warning” or “General Shutdown” LED will illuminate. The user can then view the specific faults leading up to the event. This, coupled with the basic engine or generator data, provides a powerful solution for quickly determining annunciator needs.
Optional I/O Modules lend to the capability to annunciate any digital input signal and provide an annunciated digital output. In addition, custom programming can provide a powerful solution for specific customer needs.
“It’s difficult to pass along exactly what this product could do in various situations because of its incredible flexibility. The Programmable Remote Annunciator has almost inexhaustible possibilities,” says Senior Product Development Specialist Bruce Eckley.
This product began development in the Fall of 2011 through work with a Caterpillar® dealer that needed an annunciator product for a customer. Through that process, and additional months of programming and testing, the Programmable Remote Annunciator was shaped to allow industrial engine users to have the benefit of an annunciator panel both on site and remotely.
