For a few months I have been trying to track down a manual for MTUs series 45 and series 50 controllers. Both run katolight kassec boards which i have that manual. However the controller has a lot more bells and whistles it can do and Im trying to track down manuals or wiring diagrams for them. Any help would be appreciated. And no ...before you say it....mtu did NOT help. They looked at me a went brain dead before they even looked for a manual. They swore up and down they never had that controller when they even had a catalog on the units.

I've got a couple of MTUs at work. I can check for the controller series next week. I assume this would be part of the O&M manual.

it should be its own manual i think. Im familiar with the kassec controller inside but im not familiar with the alarm boards and how they all connect to each other in the system. The kassec only has 4 outputs but there are multiple alarms on the display.

Our mtu units are running MGC2000 andMGC 3000 controllers. I can get info on those but it’s not what your looking for.

Brian,

To the best of my knowledge, there is no proper manual for the Kato 50-series et-al control panels. Each panel starts out as a basic panel, and was built per customer order. Each generator was then supplied with a binder, that usually contained an engine parts manual, peripheral components brochures/manuals (coolant heaters, louver motors, KASSEC control guide, special metering, etc..). The binder also included drawings specific to that genset. Those drawings are gold, and should always be safely stored near the generator location. Its too bad that they have often disappeared in the name of general clean up by those that did not care to find out what they were.
