Glossary of acronyms used in Product Descriptions
ACP Automatic Control Panel: The generating set is supplied with an automatic control panel, mounted on the genset. The panel includes an automatic control unit that starts the genset in case of mains failure (it can be started manually too), main circuit breaker (three poles standard, four poles optional depending on the model), differential protection and all auxiliary controls and alarms. Power cables between generator and circuit breaker are included.
AMF Automatic Mains Failure: This panel is built in a metal cabinet and supplied separate from the generator (free standing, for wall mounting). The panel includes an automatic control unit that starts the genset in case of mains failure (it can be started manually too), two change over contactors electrically and mechanically interlocked (for transferring the load between mains and generating set) and all auxiliary controls and alarms. All these controls are wired to a plinth row installed in the panel for an easy connection to the ACP panel (that is mounted on the genset). Five meters control cables are included.
AVR Automatic Voltage Regulator: Electronic device designed to increase accuracy on output voltage of alternators. Thanks to this device the portable range reaches stable and precise performances, regardless engine speed variation, load and temperature conditions. This supplement is provided integrated into the alternator, recommended to power electronic devices with high sensitivity.
CONN CONNector: (portable generators manual panel CONN): version with proper connector and related specific equipments that allow you to simply interface with external control systems. It is a practical device that, by means of special Accessorieses, makes possible to complete and, if necessary, to transform the manual standard generator into emergency generator (via accessory automatic panel AMF) or to control remotely the generating set (via accessory remote control RSS).
COP Continuous Operating Power: It is defined as being the maximum power which a generating set is capable of delivering continuously for an unlimited number of hours, with the maintenance intervals and procedures being carried out as prescribed by the manufacturers. (rif. ISO 8528).
PRP Prime Power: It is defined as being the maximum power which a generating set is capable of delivering continuously whilst supplying a variable electrical load when operated for an unlimited number of hours per year, under the agreed operating conditions and with the maintenance intervals and procedures prescribed by the manufacturer. The permissible average power output over 24 h of operation will not exceed 70 % of the prime power. A 10% overload capacity is available for a period of 1 hour within a 12-hours period of operation.
LTP Limited Time Power; identifies the maximum mechanical power available that the endothermic engine can provide, under the operating conditions and with the maintenance intervals set by the manufacturer of the engine itself, powering a load for a limited number of hours (as indicated by the engine manufacturer).
LTS Load Transfer Switch(Accessory for industrial generators): Load transfer switch panel provided separately in a special metal box (prepared for the installation and application, wall or floor). The LTS panel includes two contactors mechanically and electrically interlocked (for energy transfer from mains or generator), emergency stop button, power terminals (mains, generator and use) and auxiliaryexternal terminal board for easy connection the ACP panel (mounted on the generator). P.A. Accessory matched exclusively to the ACP panel.
MCP Manual Control Panel: The generating set is supplied with a manual control panel, mounted on the genset. The panel includes a manual control unit (push button / key start type), main circuit breaker (three poles standard, four poles optional), differential protection and all auxiliary controls and alarms. Power cables between generator and circuit breaker are included. There are several different types of MCP panel available.
MPP Modular Parallel Panel (Industrial Generator Supplement): Modular parallel panel able to work as manual, automatic and parallel with other generators (up to 24 generators may be connected in parallel even with different power size). The panel is mounted on the generator and includes a digiltal control unit (for monitoring, control, protection and load sharing system), a Motorized Magnetotermic Circuit Breaker, and all auxiliary controls and alarms (internal syncroscope, RS232 serial port, automatic battery charger, terminal board for ext. power connection, IN & OUT parallel connectors) located in the front of the panel for an easy connection of the generators.
