DGC-2020HD, Digital Genset Controller

The DGC-2020HD is an advanced but rugged genset control system designed for paralleling and complex load sharing schemes. With comprehensive control, metering, expandability, and protection capabilities, the DGC-2020HD is a total system solution for generator set applications. Its compact package allows users to save both space and money.


  • Microprocessor-based controller with easy-to-use integrated programmable logic and load sharing capabilities reduces space and installation costs while providing the user increased flexibility and functionality.
  • Rugged, potted design provides ultimate reliability in extreme environments.
  • The Offline Simulator in BESTlogic™Plus helps identify and troubleshoot the logic without the expensive need for physical hardware.
  • Fully programmable I/O including an option for two analog inputs provides exceptional flexibility in all applications.
  • Feature-rich design provides exceptional control for advanced paralleling, load sharing, peak shaving, automatic load shedding, load import/export control and protection.
  • Capable of monitoring a generator and up to two busses. With up to seven current transformers (CTs), the DGC-2020HD can provide metering and protection for a wide array of applications.
  • Multiple synchronizer modes for better system implementation.
  • Built-in real-time monitor for analysis during commissioning and tuning eliminates the need for external monitoring and decreases commissioning time and costs.
  • Capable of communicating with up to four AEM-2020’s and four CEM-2020’s, vastly increasing the I/O capabilities and overall flexibility of the DGC-2020HD and eliminating the need for external peripheral devices.
  • Selectable breaker schemes along with BESTlogic™Plus make breaker control with the DGC-2020HD simple and quick.
  • Configurable protection elements reduce the need for outside protection and external PLC's.
  • Contains an extensive number of communication options which allows for easy integration into a wide variety of control systems.
  • Email capabilities enable the DGC-2020HD to send email alerts on selected alarms and pre-alarms.
  • Optional VRM-2020 provides generator excitation for complete voltage regulation and system control.
