Auto Mains (Utility) Failure Control Module

The DSE6120 MKIII is an Auto Mains (Utility) Failure Control Module suitable for a wide variety of single, diesel or gas, genset applications.  

Monitoring an extensive number of engine parameters, the module will display warnings, shutdown and engine status information on the back-lit LCD screen, illuminated LEDs and remote PC.

The DSE6120 MKIII will also monitor the mains (utility) supply. 

The module includes USB connection and dedicated DSENetĀ® terminals for system expansion.

The module is compatible with electronic (CAN) and non-electronic (magnetic pick-up/alternator sensing) engines and offers an extensive number of flexible inputs, outputs and extensive engine protections so the system can be easily adapted to meet the most demanding industry requirements.

The extensive list of features includes enhanced event and performance monitoring, remote communications & PLC functionality. The modules can be easily configured using the DSE Configuration Suite PC software. Selected front panel editing is also available.
