Works With A Wide Range Of Diesel Engines.

The K17 is suitable on both electronic and mechanical engines. On electronic engines pressing UP/DOWN arrows can increase the speed. Mechanical engines must be controlled with a mechanical throttle cable. This controller is suitable for use on the following engine brands: Caterpillar, Cummins, MTU, Detroit, Perkins, Deutz, Hatz, Scania, Kubota, Yanmar, JCB, Lister and various engines from Asia.

Telemetry connection Via (Satellite/GSM/GPS)

The controller's telemetry capabilities make certain you will always be connected to your asset via a smart phone, tablet or computer. You have the option of sending data to a 3G network or the option of a go-anywhere satellite network. Just choose the right Modem/Data package to suit your budget. PLC, RTU or SCADA users can also connect to the K17 controller. The control panel has inbuilt data logging capabilities and captures all shutdown messages
