The New 1106C range of Perkins Engines
On future F G Wilson genset models P180P2 and P200E2 you will be seeing the new fully electronic 1106C Perkins engine fitted. This engine is yet another advance in technology and has some features which I need to share with you.
First of all this is not like a traditional diesel engine, the fuel injection pressures are in the region of 23000 psi./ 1600bar/ 160MPa and the high pressure fuel pipes are specially autofrettaged for this application with a fluid penetration safety hazard. Therefore, if any pipe is removed or loosened for any reason it must be replaced, do not try to bleed this engine in the traditional way, it is self bleeding.
Although the genset DC voltage is 12v, the set will come with two DC batteries, these batteries must be connected in parallel across the starter motor to double the starting current and maintain 12v, not in series.
Similar to the more familiar 2300/2500/2800 series of Perkins engines this engine is fitted with an ECM, with it's own Electronic Service Tool plug and in this application the ECM is cooled by diesel fuel returning from the injectors.
Fuel pipes visible here, entering and leaving the ECM.
To interrogate the engine ECM a link between terminal 7 and terminal 3a must be made in the panel, this is similar to the terminal 322 and + connection required on the 1300 series ECM. It also has the same consequences as the 1300 series if this link is not opened before starting the set, it will not stop! In normal operation terminal 7 and terminal 3B should be linked, clearly marked below.
Terminal link visible here,3A,7,3B
Along with the introduction of a new engine comes the introduction of new Service items, part numbers, lead-times etc, please contact us when the time comes for a quotation.
