INTRODUCTION
This new genset controller series consists of two products: Surf-AMF and Surf-Auto. The Surf-AMF monitors
the utility and controls the genset as well as the automatic transfer switch. The Surf-AUTO controls the genset
only. However, the two controllers share many common features. Physically, the Surf has a very attractive and
slim design. It features isolated measurement of the voltages and frequency on the two sources as well as the
current on the load side. It has four user-selectable operating modes: Off, Auto, Utility Only(1) or Manual. Front
panel LEDs signal the installation status and operating mode. The user interface consists of an LCD display for
the measurements and faults. The front panel push buttons are provided to select the operating mode and to
access a menu of parameters. The menu gives access to all timers, set points and other parameters relevant to
the control and protection of the installation. The Surf series has a myriad of communication ports: CAN bus,
Serial RS232C, USB, Ethernet and internet. The firmware could be easily upgraded on site via the USB
interface.

OPERATION
Four modes of operation are provided. Following is a description of each mode:

1
Off Mode: This mode is entered when the Off push button is pressed for more than 3 seconds. In this
mode, the engine and the module are shut down. All faults and alarms are reset.
Only Available for Surf-AMF
-4
Manual Mode: This mode is entered when the Manual/Down push button is pressed. In this mode, the
module will start the genset and engage the load. If, originally, Utility was feeding the load and the
genset has no fault, Utility will continue feeding the load until the genset is done warming up(2). The load
is disengaged and a transfer dead time(3) is counted before the genset engages the load. If the genset
has a fault, then Utility would disengage the load immediately.

Utility Only/Standby Mode: This mode is entered when the Utility/Select push button is pressed. In
this mode, if Surf type is Surf-AMF, the Utility would feed the load when it is present. If Utility is absent
or Surf type is Surf-AUTO, the genset will not be requested. If the genset was feeding the load before
switching to this mode, the load will be disengaged.

Auto Mode: This mode is entered when the Auto/Up push button is pressed. In this mode, Utility will
feed the load if present. If Utility is absent, the genset will feed the load if no faults exist on it and if the
remote control signal is active. If the genset was feeding the load and the remote control signal turns
off, the genset would count the delay set by oFF (for Surf-AUTO) – MRT (for Surf-AMF) before
disengaging the load. If the Utility is restored while the genset is feeding the load, Genset disengages
the load after Restoration delay. Utility will engage after transfer dead time.
Following is a description of the start sequence of the genset:
1. Once the remote control input receives a start signal, the response delay (set by RSP) is counted.
2. After the elapse of the response delay, the preheat relay (if present) is engaged for a time delay set by
PRH.
3. A starting sequence of a preset number of attempts ATT will initiate.
4. The Electric Valve is engaged for 0.25 sec before the Starter.
5. If the start signal is removed before the engine starts, all timers are reset and the module is ready for a
new sequence.
6. Cranking is disconnected when any of the following condition becomes valid:
a. The measured frequency exceeds CrF.
b. A voltage exceeding dcd (if not set to N) appears on the Dynamo input.
c. The oil pressure switch opens (given that boP is not set to Y) and its preset delay has elapsed.
d. The analog oil pressure measurement exceeded the value set by LoA (if not set to N).
e. For Volvo engines, when a running indication is received through the CAN bus or the RPM exceeds
500.
7. If the engine fails to start after the preset number of attempts, the Alarm output is activated, the LCD
alarm symbol ( ! ) blinks and the Multifunction Display on the LCD would indicate a start fail error
(St Fail). Otherwise, the engine enters the running state and the running symbol (
) turns on.
8. After elapse of the warm-up delay, set by WuP, the load contactor is engaged via terminal Contactor-G
and the green load led is activated. If one of the Outputs is set to Cont-G2, then Cont-G2 would be
engaged 5 seconds after the first Contactor.
9. All protections are enabled when the engine is running and after the elapse of the fault bypass time set by
bYP.
10. Once a fault occurs, the load is shut down. Some faults require the engine to cool before shutting (high
engine temperature, overload). Other faults would directly shut the engine. Alarm output and the
corresponding fault symbol on the LCD are activated. The Multifunction Display would explain the fault. If
CAN bus is enabled, the Multifunction display will show the DTC (J1939 protocol error code) description
of the fault received from the CAN bus.
11. When the start signal on the genset is removed, the load is shut down after the elapse of the delay set by
oFF (for Surf-AUTO) – MRT (for Surf-AMF). The engine is shut down after the elapse of the cooling time
set by CoL.

PROGRAMMABLE OUTPUTS
SURF has a total of six outputs (Output 1  6) that could be programmed to any of these functions: Preheat,
Starter, Electric Valve, Utility Contactor, Genset Contactor, Alarm, Cut-off, Pre-alarm, Genset Contactor 2,
Dummy Load, Overload, Start Fail and Auto Mode. Users can easily change the function of these outputs from
the menu, parameters O1  O6. The user can also disable the output by setting the corresponding parameter
to Not Assigned (N/A). Following is a description of each function:

2
3
Preheat (PRE) Function when one of the outputs is set to Preheat, the PRH parameter in the menu
becomes visible and takes the default value 0. The preheat output is activated when the genset finishes
counting the response delay and remains on for a delay set by PRH.
Warm Up delay is presettable in the menu
Transfer dead time is presettable in the menu
-5-
5

Starter (STA) Function is activated while cranking the genset and remains on for a delay set by STA.
The minimum value of STA is 1 sec if the oil pressure is bypassed otherwise the minimum value is the
oil pressure bypass delay plus one second (boP+1).

Electric Valve (EVA) Function if present should be defined at Output 2 since the dynamo excitation is
physically connected to this output. To configure the Electric Valve at another output, the dynamo input
should be connected to VBAT or the dynamo shutdown must be disabled (dSd set to N) if dynamo
excitation is not required. Otherwise, the dynamo input should be externally excited.

Utility Contactor (C-U) Function if present should be defined at Output 3. This output is activated when
Utility engages the load and turns off when the load is released.

Genset Contactor (C-G) Function if present should be defined at Output 4. This output is activated
when the genset engages the load and turns off when the load is released.

Alarm (ALA) Function is activated when a genset fault occurs. This output is not activated on
emergency stop since it disables all outputs.

Cut-Off (Cut) Function is activated when the genset should be shut down and it has finished cooling,
when a fault that does not require cooling has occurred and the load was released or when the SURF
module is turned off while the genset was on. When the cut-off output is activated, it will remain on until
the delay set by Cut has elapsed. If the SURF module was turned off, the module can not be turned on
until the cut-off delay has elapsed. The parameter Cut is not visible in the menu unless this output is
activated.

Pre-alarm (PRA) Function is activated on a pre-alarm condition caused by the analog measurements
oil pressure/engine temperature dropping below/exceeding the pre-alarm level set in the parameters’
menu LoP/HTP.

Genset Contactor 2 (CG2) Function is activated five seconds after the first genset contactor is
engaged if the voltage and frequency readings are correct and there is no overload condition. If an
overload occurs, this contactor is disengaged first and the load is measured again, if the overload
condition persists then the contactor G is disengaged. Otherwise, Contactor G remains engaged.
Contactor G2 re-engages when the load decreases.

Dummy Load (dLd) Function is activated when the load remains below the level specified by doN for a
delay set by dod. This output is disengaged when the load current exceeds the level specified by doF.
Parameters doN, dod and doF are not visible unless this output is activated.

Overload (oLd) Function is activated when the load exceeds the value set by oLd and the module is
counting the overload delay set by oLdd or if an overload fault occurs. The output will be turned off if the
load falls below oLd before the delay elapses.

Start Fail (STF) Function is activated when the genset fails to start. This output is turned off when the
start fail error is no longer present. The fault is removed when the Remote Control input is recycled or
when Utility is restored.

Auto Mode (AUT) Function is activated when the mode of operation is Auto. This output is turned off
when the mode of operation is changed from Auto.
PROGRAMMABLE INPUTS
SURF has a total of five digital inputs (Input 1  5) that could be programmed to any of these functions: Oil
Pressure Switch (oPS), Engine Temperature Switch (ETS), Oil Temperature Switch (oTS), Low Fuel Level
Normally Open (LFo), Low Fuel Level Normally Closed (LFc) and Lamp Test (LMP). Users can easily change
the function of these inputs from the menu, parameters I1  I5. The user can also disable the input by setting
the corresponding parameter to Not Assigned (N/A).
6
COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS
SURF supports communication with the electronic control unit (ECU) on the genset using the J1939 CAN Bus
protocol. Three different ECU types are supported: Standard Engine (SE), Volvo Engine (VE) and Perkins
Engine (PE). Parameter ECU in the menu is used to select the ECU type. If the genset does not contain an
ECU, set this parameter to No. The SURF module reads the following parameters from the CAN bus: oil
pressure (PSI), engine coolant temperature (oC), fuel consumption (Liters/hour), engine speed (RPM), engine
total hours of operation (Hr) and the engine total fuel consumption (L).
-6Users can communicate with the SURF module by connecting it to a PC through an RS232 Serial Port, USB
Port, Ethernet Port or a GSM Modem. When connecting from a PC, the program SURF Control allows the
users to view and control the engine and to access the SURF parameters. When the parameter Mod is set to
GSM, the user can also communicate with the SURF via SMS messages. To set up this feature, the following
parameters must be set:
1. The identification of the SURF module (SITEId): This ID will be included as a header of all sent or
received SMS messages. It must contain 6 digits which can be numbers (from 0 to 9) or letters (A to
Z). Any message with a wrong ID will be ignored.
2. The phone number (PHONE): When a fault occurs, The SURF will send an SMS containing as a
header the SURF ID followed by the fault description and all the readings at the time the fault occurred.
This SMS is sent to the phone number specified by the user. The phone number must be between 3
and 18 digits long.
Following is a description of the functions supported via SMS:

Example: SURF SURF00 request A01,A03,A12,A31,A10
When modifying or viewing parameters through SMS, the SMS alias (refer to section 7) is used to identify the
parameter being updated/requested. Thus, if the user wants to request the parameters RSP, Mod and ECU
from the SURF having SiteID SURF00, the SMS would then be: “SURF SURF00 request a01,a66,a64”. Note
that the parameters A64 to A76, A81 and A82 can be requested but cannot be modified through SMS.
To set up the Ethernet module, the following parameters must be set:
1. The DHCP Module (dHC): If the network to which the SURF is being connected distributes IP
addresses automatically, then the DHCP Module on the SURF must be enabled (dHC set to Y). If a
fixed IP should be assigned to the SURF, then dHC should be set to N.
2. Network Configuration (IP Adr, SubNET, GATEWY): If dHC is set to N, the user must specify to the
SURF: the IP Address (IP Adr), the Subnet Mask (SubNET) and the Default Gateway (GATEWY).
3. The identification of the SURF module (SITEId): the SITEId is used by the Ethernet module as a Net
BIOS Name (NBNS).
7
FAULT LOG
SURF has a Fault Log that can save the last 10 faults that occurred on the genset. The Fault Log saves the
type of error that occurred along with the voltages, frequency, currents, oil pressure, engine temperature,
battery voltage, hour meter, KW and KWHr. The Fault Log can be accessed and erased through the SURF
menu or remotely through the different communication protocols supported.
7.1
VIEWING THE FAULT LOG
To access the Fault Log, enter the menu (refer to section 7), scroll down until “VIEWFT” is displayed and press
the SELECT push button. If no faults are saved, a “NO FLT” message is displayed. Otherwise, “FLT 1” is
displayed. To scroll between the different saved faults, use the UP/DOWN push buttons. When the Fault Log is
entered, the readings at the time of the fault are displayed instead of the current readings. The fault number,

TIME SWITCH OPERATION
The time switch manages the operating time of the genset , daily and weekly. Two parameters control the
daily time switch: T-Rdy and T-sdby. T-Rdy sets the time at which the genset becomes ready. T-sdby sets the
time at which the genset goes to standby mode. If genset is required to be in ready mode all day then set
T-Rdy to ALLTIM (T-Sdby will no longer show). Rdyday controls the weekly operation. Under Rdyday, if ALL
is set to Y then the genset will be ready all week long. Otherwise, the genset will be ready only in days set to Y.
It will be in standby in days set to N. As a result, the genset will be ready during the hours set by T-Rdy and
T-Sdby only on days set to Y under Rdyday.
8.1
REMOTE CONTROL TERMINAL FUNCTION DESCRIPTION
In SURF-AMF with remote control set to RQS: when remote control is active, it overrides time switch
setting and forces the genset into ready mode.
In SURF-AMF with remote control set to SUP: when remote control is active, it overrides time switch
setting and forces the genset into standby mode.
In SURF-AUTO with remote control set to RQS: When remote control is active and genset in ready mode,
the genset is started. Otherwise, the genset is stopped.
In SURF-AUTO with remote control set to SUP: when remote control is active and genset in ready mode,
the genset is stopped.

Phase Failure Fault occurs when the voltage on one of the lines falls below 100V or the voltage difference
between any two phases exceeds 120V or the frequency goes below 15Hz. The Multifunction display indicates
the fault by displaying Ph Fail in the Genset Status page or U- VX in the Utility Status page. If the fault occurs
on the genset, the fault symbol ( ! ) turns on.
Sequence Failure Fault occurs when the phases are reversed. The Multifunction display indicates the fault by
displaying SQ Fail in the Genset Status page or U- SX in the Utility Status page. If the fault occurs on the
genset, the fault symbol ( ! ) turns on.
Over/Under Frequency Fault occurs when the frequency goes above/below the values set in GoF/GuF (for
Genset), UoF/UuF (for Utility) for a delay of GoFd/GuFd (for Genset), UoFd/UuFd (for Utility). The
Multifunction display indicates an over/under frequency fault by displaying oFREQ/uFREQ in the Genset Status
page or U-FX in the Utility Status page. For the genset, the RPM symbol (
fault and blink for an over frequency fault.
) turns on for an under frequency
Overload Fault occurs when the load on the genset exceeds the value set by oLd for a delay set by oLdd. The
fault symbol ( ! ) turns on and the Multifunction display indicates an overload fault by displaying oVLoad in the
Genset Status page. Genset goes into cooling if CHT is set to Y.

FIRMWARE UPGRADE
13.1 INSTALLING THE SURF FIRMWARE UPGRADE SOFTWARE
In order to upgrade firmware on site, a CD will be provided by S.&A.S.Ltd & the below steps shall be
followed:
1. Run file “SAS_Patch.exe” located in “Surf120_PTool\SAS_PTool” folder.
2. Setup the application located in “Surf120_PTool\SAS_PTool \SAS_PTool_Setup” folder
3. SAS_PTool will appear in the programs list. Send it to Desktop as shortcut.
13.2 INSTALLING THE SURF USB DRIVER
1. Plug in the USB cable to the SURF device before turning power on
2. Turn on power of the SURF device. All the leds on the front starts blinking.
13.2.1 DRIVER SETUP FOR WINDOWS VISTA/WIN717
The first SURF plugged into the PC USB port may not launch an automatic start. In this case, right-click
my computer and choose properties. The following window appears. On the left side of the window, click on
Device Manager.
17
This will be implemented only one time when the first Surf is connected to PC through USB.
-16The “SAS DEV” device will appear in Other Devices, right-click it and choose Update Driver Software.
Select “Search automatically for updates driver software”.
-17Select Install this driver software anyway.
The Driver SETUP procedure will be done only once For Windows vista/Win7.
So, the driver of any new SURF connected to the PC USB port will be installed automatically.
13.2.2 DRIVER SETUP FOR WINDOWS XP
Each time new SURF is plugged into the PC USB port, a “Found New Hardware Wizard” window
appears.
Select “Install the software automatically (Recommended)” and click next.
-18Select “Continue Anyway”.
The driver of the new SURF connected to the PC USB port will be installed automatically.
13.3 FIRMWARE UPGRADE PROCESS
Run “SAS_PTool” application.
The following window will appear prompting the user that the SURF board is detected on the USB port:
Click Open to choose the *.sas file that will be used to upgrade the firmware.
A Footnote will appear showing the file name, the software version and its date:
-19-
Click upgrade. The upgrade progress is shown as below:
Once the upgrade is complete, the footnote “Firmware upgraded successfully” will appear:
Then the SURF Firmware upgraded successfully and the SURF will automatically run the new firmware.
