The EC200 control system is designed to meet or exceed the following specifications. These specifications are selected to satisfy US, Australian, and European regulatory agency requirements and recommendations.
Operating: 0 to 70 degrees Celsius ambient
Storage: -20 to 85 degrees Celsius ambient
Relative humidity from 0 to 100%
Splash and spray up to 15 PSI on all normally exposed surfaces and 5 PSI on all surfaces which are normally inside or protected from weather and waves
8 g’s, 3 planes, 0.15 displacement, 5 to 45 Hz., 1 million cycles
The bonding circuitry design of the EC200 control system allows it to work in either U.S. (ABYC) battery negative to control enclosure wiring, or European/Australian totally isolated battery negative wiring, with control enclosure tied to hull plate or not connected at all.
EMI/RFI SUSCEPTIBILITY LEVEL
150 volts per meter for control head and associated cable
100 volts per meter for entire system, from 10 kilohertz to 10 gigahertz
12 volt system – (“A” suffix) 10 volts to 16 volts operation, 9 volts cranking
24 volt system – (“B” suffix) 20 volts to 32 volts operation, 18 volts cranking
12 volt system – 15 amps peak (2 seconds per command change), 1 amp nominal
24 volt system – 8 amps peak (2 seconds per command change), 0.8 amps nominal
Note: The above current requirements are based on control systems that have actuators for both throttle and gear. If the system has electronic options that reduces the number of electro-mechanical actuators that are used, the current requirements will be reduced significantly.
A012 Aluminium Bronze with chrome plating or gold-tone coating for control head.
304, passivated stainless steel for control enclosure, bottom, and cover plates.
EXPOSED SURFACES STABILITY
Resistant to normally encountered levels of dust, dirt, oil, greese, solvents, gasoline, diesel fuel, hydraulic fluid, and sea water.
90 inch pounds torque at 26.4/13.2 volts system power input
60 inch pounds torque at 20/10.0 volts system power input
1.0 seconds maximum Neutral to Gear with full torque load, at 26.4/13.2 volts system power input
100 milliseconds minimum clutch holdover during power interruption
10 inch pounds torque maximun drag from disengaged actuator (power off)
CIRCUIT BREAKER RATING
8 amps medium fast trip breaker capable of interrupting 50 amps repetitively
4 seconds nominal trip time for 16 amps, 0.6 seconds nominal trip time for 25 amps
1.4 watt maximum inductive load for power from same level as main control power
10 milliseconds nominal drop-out time for loss of power
START INTERLOCK RELAY
5 amp inductive load rating sufficient for most starter relays and some solenoid coils. Isolated relays contacts have non-polar MOV protection.
OPTIONAL SOLENOID OUTPUTS
3 amp direct drive from system power connected to the EC200 control for gear, troll, or shaft brake outputs.
Direct drive outputs have transient suppression diodes which are referenced to battery negative power.
OPTIONAL SYNCHRONIZER ENGINE SPEED INPUTS
0.5 volts RMS sensitivity for magnetic pickups or tach generators
300 volts impulse and oscillation filtering with optional ignition interface module
OPTIONAL PRESSURE SWITCH INPUT
Ground true input sourcing 10 milliamps from internal pull-up when option is selected.
