SECTION 2 : Function Descriptions
2.2
The EG2000 provides both an adjustable IDLE Speed
and ramp, for controlling engine smoke, vibration and
warm-up.
2.2.1 Protect the EG2000 by installing it inside the
engine instrument control panel.
2.1
2.2.2 Mount the Actuator close to the engine fuel
system. See actuator manufacture instructions.
Controller
Together, the EG2000 Controller, Actuator and MPU
(Magnetic Pickup) form the electronic engine governor
assembly.
The EG2000 receives the signal from the MPU and,
depending on the engine RPM, the actuator controls
the fuel intake on the engine.
The EG2000 receives its power from the engine
batteries or an AC to DC power supply rated from 12 or
24 Vdc +/- 20% matching the Actuator voltage. The
average operating current is around 2.5 to 3.5 amps,
but it may reach 15 Amps during engine start or sudden
load changes.
Installation Descriptions
2.2.3 Always choose a point on the actuator control
arm in which it can rotate freely, providing
minimum and maximum fuel (But do not bottom
out the actuator; leave 2 to 3 degrees before the
off and on position).
2.2.4 Use a Non-Linear link on Gas engines to get low
Gain at light loads and high Gain at heavy loads
and a linear link on diesel ejection pumps.
2.2.5 Mount the magnetic pickup on the flywheel bell
housing to count the teeth on the ring gear. The
teeth are converted to an electrical pulse by the
MPU. These pulses are cross referenced with the
original setting on the EG2000. Any difference is
used by the actuator to change engine RPM to
maintain the same pulse count.

3.4
Terminal 6 and 7-8 and terminal 6 and 7-9 are
two sets of remote speed control. Referring to
figure 4, connect a 5K ohms potentiometer, and
turn the knob to central position. Let engine run
on Run Speed to adjust to the rated engine
speed, the adjustable range is +/- 5%. Users can
also series a resistor to the potentiometer
variable point to either terminal 8 or 9 to narrow
the adjustable range. The wirings used to
connect to terminal 6, 7-8 and 6, 7-9 must use
the 3-wire shielded cable. The drain shield wire is
to be connected to terminal 10 and the other end
of the drain shield wire must cut off and taped.
3.5
Terminal 10 and 11 is the MPU signal input
terminal. The wiring used to connect to the
terminals must use a 2-wire shield cable. The
drain shield wire is to be connected to Terminal
10 and the other end of the drain shield wire must
cut off and taped.
3.6
(2) Adjust Run Speed to minimum and let
Terminal 2 & 3 be Open Circuit.
(3) Start engine. The engine speed may rev to
Run Speed right away. Slowly adjust Run
Speed to the rated generator RPM.
(4) Short Terminal 2 & 3 the engine speed should
drop, slowly set IDLE Speed to a comfortable
engine IDLE.
(5) Stop engine and adjust Ramp. Time to it
center setting then restart engine. At this time,
the engine speed will stay in IDLE and slowly
Ramp up to normal engine speed. Adjust to
preferred Ramp speed. Refer to Figure 1.
(6) When operating at normal RPM closing the
IDLE SW, decreases engine RPM back to
IDLE RPM according to preset Ramp Time.
(7) To ensure positive engine starts every time
follow step (4) and turn the IDLE Speed
potentiometer an additional 3 to 5%.
4.1.2 Ramp Time.
(1) On hot engines, a specific fuel limit setting will
control start-up smoke, but not completely. A
hot engine does not need the same fuel limits
to start as a cold starting engine.
(2) Ramp Time can be set from 3 up to 20
seconds. The Ramp Time is the length of time
from IDLE to the rated Run Speed.
Figure 1
Harness used to connect to Terminal 1, 2, 4 and
5 must use the 2.0mm twist pair harness.
SECTION 4 : OPERATION
4.1
IDLE Speed and Smoke Limiting Adjustment
The EG2000 has two settings used for smoke
limiting :
4.1.1 IDLE Speed:The setting of the lowest engine
operating speed.
(1) Before firing the engine, adjust the IDLE
Speed to the maximum, and Ramp Time to
the minimum.

4.2
Isochronous Adjustment
Isochronous operation is obtained by setting Droop
potentiometer fully counterclockwise. EG2000 is
normally operated in the isochronous mode; i.e.,
engine RPM is constant (+/- 0.25%), under steady
state load conditions, up to the engine’s maximum
capability, regardless of load on the engine. Please
refer to Figure 2.
4.4
Remote Speed POT Adjustment
EG2000 is equipped with 2 sets of Remote Speed
Potentiometer adjustment. By adding a 5KΩ
Potentiometer, user can adjust the engine speed from
as far as 60 meters away from the engine. Please refer
to Figure 4 for connection. To narrow the adjustment
range, series a resistor on either Terminal 8 or 9 to
reduce. Without the resistor the adjustment range is
approximately 5%.
4.5
Integration (INT.), GAIN Adjustment
(1) Shutdown engine and DC input turned off.
(2) Potentiometer original setting.
(3) Adjust INT., Gain and Ramp Time Potentiometer to
minimum setting (Fully Counterclockwise)
(4) Under
Isochronous operation,
set
Droop
potentiometer fully counterclockwise.
(5) Set the MPU frequency range :
Figure 2
4.3
Select the suitable frequency setting according to the
highest engine frequency range.
Non-Isochronous Operation
Input Signal Frequency :
When operated under Non- isochronous (Paralleled),
Droop is used to distribute the actual power from the
generators. Please refer to Figure 3.
RPM × Flywheel teeth
60 sec
Droop operation is obtained by setting the Droop
potentiometer. Moving Droop Pot clockwise increases
the Droop. The amount of Droop for a given setting
depends on the magnetic pickup frequency and no
load to full load actuator shaft rotation.
Frequency Selection
SW-1 ON
600  1200 Hz
SW-2 ON
1200  2500 Hz
SW-3 ON
2500  5000 Hz
SW-4 ON
5000  9500 Hz
(If uncertain Set SW3-ON and the balance to OFF)
(6) Idle Speed set to maximum, Run Speed set to
minimum
(7) Adjust Remote Speed POT to central (If used)
(8) Start Engine
Figure 3
A Droop potentiometer setting of 10 o’clock will give
about 4% Droop, no load to full load when the pickup
frequency is 4260 Hz and actuator shaft rotation is
approximately 30 degrees from no load to full load.
Lower pickup frequency or smaller shaft rotation results
in less Droop for the system.
At this time the engine should rev to Run Speed, (If
engine speed exceeds its rated speed, Stop engine
and immediately choose a lower frequency setting)
slowly adjust Run Speed pot clockwise to the rated
engine speed.
For Idle Speed, Ramp Time And Idle Sw Setting,
Reference To Paragraph 4.1
(9) Slowly adjust Gain clockwise until the actuator
begins to oscillate.
(10) Slowly adjust Gain counterclockwise until it
becomes stable.

● Please reference from 4.2 and 4.3 for Droop
setting.
(11) Manually move the linkage. If the linkage oscillates
3 to 5 times and then stabilizes, then the setting is
correct.
(12) If engine speed overly increases or decreases
when adding load or reducing load, please adjust
the Gain VR clockwise a little.
(13) If engine speed recovers too slowly, adjust INT.
(Integration) clockwise, in the same time decrease
the GAIN setting. Observe the actuator linkage. If
the linkage is stable, manually adjust the linkage. If
the linkage slowly oscillates, then the response
time is inadequate. Adjust INT. clockwise until the
response is improved.
(14) Again manually adjust the linkage. If the linkage
begins to oscillate 3 to 5 times and then stabilizes,
then the setting is complete.
Note 1:If GAIN or INT. (Integration) is over adjusted, it
causes the engine speed to oscillate.
Repetitively increasing and decreasing the
GAIN and INT. arrangement can help to
obtain the best performance.
Note 2:Due to different types of external and internal
built-in type actuators, the adjustment of Gain
is very important, together with INT.
(Integration) adjustment. In PT pump type
actuators, the movement is very limited, so
Gain is set to the minimum using INT.
(Integration) to adjust engine speed
compensation.

SECTION 6 : TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
Actuator goes to full stroke
when DC power is turned on
(Engine is not operating)
Governor is completely dead
and actuator lever stays at
minimum position when power
is applied to governor.
CORRECTIVE ACTION
1. Check magnetic pickup leads for proper shielded wire or open shield. Verify
and correct wiring as necessary. Be sure there is no jumper between terminals
2 and 3.
2. Failsafe circuit in the controller may be damaged or defective. Replace with
new controller.
3. With DC power OFF remove leads at actuator. Check continuity of conduction
on each terminal to case. There should be no continuity of conduction between
any terminal and case of EG2000. If conduction is measured, please replace
the controller.
4. If remote speed potentiometer has been connected to terminals 6, 7 and 9 of
the controller, disconnect these leads. Turn DC power ON to the governor if
the actuator is now normal. Proceed to corrective actions for the next problem.
1. Check battery voltage at terminals 1 and 2 on controller. Terminal 1 is positive.
Check battery connections and contacts for turning power ON to the controller.
2. Check for proper linkage setup. Correct and free linkage.
3. Magnetic pickup signal absent or too low. Measure AC voltage across
terminals 10 and 11 while cranking the engine. Voltage should be min. 1.0 Vac.
NOTE :
The voltmeter should have an impedance of 5000 ohms / volts or higher. Check
pole tip gap over gear tooth. Should be 0.037 mm  / - 0.127 mm.
Erratic governor operation
4. Measure the resistance of the magnetic pickup coil. This should be above 50
ohm. If there is an open or shorted coil, replace the magnetic pickup.
5. Measure the resistance of each pin to the metal case of the magnetic pickup.
No continuity should be evident.
6. If there is continuity of conduction to the case, replace with new magnetic
pickup.
7. Measure actuator coil resistance :
If actuator coil is open or shorted to case, replace the actuator.
If governor still does not operate, continue with steps below.
8. Measuring the resistance of each coil lead to the actuator case should indicate
an open circuit on a low scale of the ohm meter. If continuity is defected,
replace the actuator.
9. With DC to the governor ON and the engine OFF, measure the DC voltage
from terminal 6(+) to terminal 2(-). This should be approx. 4 Vdc. If 4 Vdc is not
present, replace the controller.
10. Between terminal 7(+) and terminal 2(-), the voltage should be approx. 4.6
Vdc. If 4.6 Vdc is not present, replace the controller.
1. Measure DC voltage at 1 and 2 on controller terminal strip. Normal battery
voltage should be indicated. If nominal voltage is present, wiring is correct.
2. Low battery voltage 20% below rated can cause erratic operation. Check
battery and charging system.
3. RFI noise due to incorrect shielding. Correct wiring.
4. RFI noise fed through power supply leads. Connect power leads directly to the
battery.

PROBLEM
Improper
operation
from
remote speed potentiometer
CORRECTIVE ACTION
1. Investigate wiring to remote speed potentiometer for open or shorted circuits.
Checking wiring.
2. If the leads at terminals 6 and 7 to the remote speed potentiometer are
reversed, speed control by the remote speed potentiometer will be reversed.
Correct wiring.
3. Lead wire to remote speed setting potentiometer should be 3-wire shielded
cable. Verity that the drain shield wire is isolated from ground at the
potentiometer. If terminal 6 lead to the remote speed potentiometer is open,
engine speed will go high. Correct the wiring.
4. If lead 8 and 9 (wiper lead to remote potentiometer) is open, there will be no
control by the remote speed potentiometer. Verify and correct wiring.
5. If lead 7 to the clockwise terminal of the remote speed potentiometer is open,
speed will remain at the value set in EG2000.
Slow, small amplitude hunting
of speed or frequency
Fast oscillation of governor
linkage
Engine will not start – Actuator
goes to full fuel during
cranking
Jammed or very loose linkage. Correct linkage.
Verity calibration setting of the controller. Readjust setting as necessary.
1. Make sure fuel is available. Check fuel to engine.
Check for correct wiring to the automatic shutdown circuits.
2. Air may be trapped in fuel line. Check fuel lines for leaks.
3. Try to operate engine manually.
