Engine Control Equipment
E-Gas Compact - Convert you mechanical throttle to Electronic
Electronic control and limitation of engine speed and vehicle speed.
Safety functions, speed limitation, linking to other electronic control
systems and the simple communication of accelerator-pedal positions can
all be realized using one single system: VDO E-Gas compact. Thanks to
Continental's involvement in large-scale series production a
trouble-free installation in diesel or petrol engines has been proven
many times - ensuring the highest possible level of safety in everyday
use. Thanks to the free choice of parameters for the electronic units
most technical requirements can be fulfilled extremely easily. No matter
whether for on- or off-highway vehicles, stationary machines or rail
The System offers the following RPM functions:
- Working RPM regulation - call-up with operating lever
- Fixed RPM regulation - call-up via switch or operating lever
- Programmable RPM limiting
- Limiting of RPM - call-up via switch (pre-programmed)
VDO E-Gas® compact comprises an electronic controller, an electric
actuator with electrical clutch and a set-point or pedal-position
sender. It is also possible to process external set-point entries (for
example 0 - 5 Volt) to control the actuator position.
In addition to
this, switches and sensors can also be used to influence the current
setting lever position.
VDO PEDAL INTERFACE II
The VDO Pedal Interface II consists of an electronic controller which is
mounted between the pedal unit and the engine control unit. The Pedal
Interface II modifies the position signal of the pedal unit in such a
way, that different regulations and limitations of engine speed and road
speed are possible. The intervention in the hard- and software of the
standard engine management system thus can be avoided.
Maximum Engine Speed Limitation
A maximum engine speed can be
set via the configuration manager this cannot be changed by the user.
Variable Engine Speed Control
Minimum and maximum engine
With the cruise control stalk, hand set (two wire
data cable) or external switches (cruise control stalk inputs) a
variable engine speed control can be realized. Using the engine control
options the variable engine speed can be switched on or off and modified
within the programmed range.
Fixed Engine Speed Control
the status inputs a maximum of 6 fixed engine speeds can be controlled
with one status input being used for PTO disengage. Each engine speed
can individually be adjusted with its own control parameter (P+I: rpm
gain and integration time). The requirements for switching on and off
are the same as for the variable engine speed control
