DGC-2020ES, Digital Genset Controller

The DGC-2020ES is the total system solution for emergency and stand alone generator set applications. This feature-packed genset control system provides industry-leading value with an extensive level of functionality and flexibility.


  • Microprocessor-based controller integrates a function-packed, easy-to-use feature set with a fully-configurable programmable logic controller to reduce installation costs by eliminating peripheral components and maximizing user flexibility to easily meet specific requirements.
  • Extremely rugged, potted design and industry-leading temperature, vibration, and shock specifications make the DGC-2020ES optimal for harsh genset applications.
  • The Offline Simulator in BESTlogic™Plus helps identify and troubleshoot the logic without the expensive need for physical hardware.
  • NFPA-110 compliance with the RDP-110 (Remote Display Panel) simplifies emergency standby applications.
  • Low-line, single-phase, and alternate-frequency override functions make it ideal for rental and reconfigurable genset applications. The DGC-2020ES lowers user cost by automatically adjusting to typical rental and reconfigurable setups without additional costly switches or operator intervention, including genset protection level adjustment.
  • Integrated mains fail detection provides the user a cost-effective alternative when selecting transfer switches.
  • Flexible programmable logic and programmable I/O make it easy to expand the DGC-2020ES's inputs and outputs with the CEM-2020 (Contact Expansion Module). You will save time and money by eliminating unnecessary external PLCs and control relaying.
  • Intuitive BESTCOMSPlus® software simplifies setup with easy settings entry and simple drag-and-drop programmable logic, reducing the cost and commissioning time.
