User Manual

AECM105 Description

The Model AECM105 is a Multi-attempt Automatic Engine Control Module designed to automatically/remotely from mobile phone/ and manually start and stop the engine. It will indicate the operational status and fault conditions, automatically shut down the engine and indicate the start engine failure by a flashing “ST. FAIL” LED as well as informing operator about an issue via text message. Other functions and possible engine fault conditions are also visually shown via a set of LEDs located on the module.

AECM105 is designed to receive start/stop commands from a CS (Control Server) mobile phone number which has been initially registered with AECM105 or via direct call from that number. AECM105 is capable of storing up to 10 CS numbers (index 0~9) giving you and your colleagues an equal opportunity to control your engine from any place on earth where mobile network is available. You won’t be charged for a call from CS phone number because the AECM105 module will hang up incoming call immediately after recognizing you as a valid registered operator.
AECM105 is fitted inside a polycarbonate IP67 rated enclosure. Wired remote control is also available through terminals 5 & 13 [using ordinary maintained N/O switch]. Wireless local control via a key fob may also be available
as an option (£22.00 per key fob). Programming is possible via specially coded SMS or PC. All functions and method of programming are described in PDF manual.

What you can do as an operator:

Text "start" to start your generator remotely. After successful start you will receive "engine running" text message.
Text "stop" to stop your generator remotely. You should then receive "engine not running" text message.
If the engine failed to start - text "status?" to check the state of the engine.
In this situation you may receive a reply: "engine not running. status:alarm" which means the engine couldn't start this time.
Text "stop" to cancel previous "start" command, wait for about 1 min and try to start the engine again by texting "start". If no success please consider to come and see the generator to identify the problem (low battery, low fuel etc).  

As an extra option we can provide a battery monitoring system built-in which will be monitoring your engine starting battery voltage and informing you via text message should it falls below the set threshold.

AECM105 module has a wide range of programmable timers on-board:

5x second timers with 0....65535 sec range
5x minute timers with 0....65535 min range
5x daily timers with 0:0....23:59 range
7x weekly timers
7x monthly timers
Each timer can start, run and stop the engine. We can assist you with setting up these timers if required.

The module comes with printed user manual, wiring diagram, RS232 programming cable, software (please download it from the link shown in PDF manual) and aerial. To get a better reception in some rural areas you may consider to order our external magnetic based aerial (cost £15.00).
Please don't hesitate to contact us for a good and friendly advice.
