SKU: ESD5500E Category:


The ESD5500E GAC Speed Controller Unit is an all-electronic device designed to control engine speed quickly and precisely in response to transient load changes.

The ESD5500E controls a wide variety of engines in isochronous or droop mode when connected to a proportional electric actuator and magnetic speed sensor. The ruggedly built ESD5500E series is designed to withstand the engine environment. Light-Force variations are available.

When wiring ESD5500E Series controllers:

Use shielded cable for all external connections to the ESD controller.
One end of each shield, including the speed sensor shield, should be grounded to a single point on the ESD case.
Terminal A, B, E,and F should be 16 AWG or larger. Long cables require increased wire size to minimize voltage drops.
Battery positive (+) Terminal F should be fused for 15 A.
Magnetic speed sensors Terminals C and D must be twisted and or shielded for the entire length.
The gap between the speed sensor and the ring gear teeth should be smaller than 0.02 in usually backing out 3/4 turn after touching ring gear teeth. Speed sensor voltage should be at lease 1 V AC RMS during cranking.
If auto synchronization is used alone, not with a load sharing module, use a 3 Ω resistor between Terminal N and P to match the voltage between the speed control unit and the synchronizer.
When operating at the upper end of the control unit frequency range, add a jumper wire between Terminal G and J to increase the frequency range of the control unit over 7000 Hz.
Terminal P is used to supply +10 V DC regulated supply to accessories. No more than 20 mA of current can be drawn from this supply. Ground reference is Terminal G. A short circuit in this terminal can damage the speed control unit.
Do not over-tighten terminals. Torque to no greater than 9.0 in-lb ±2.5 [1.01 ±0.28 N∙m].
