General Information  
H-100 Control Panel Technical Manual  
INTRODUCTION  
PANEL SETUP  
The H-100 Control Panel is an electronic control box  
that functions as an advanced standby generator  
controller. Its technology is based on the flagship PM-  
DCP system with all its flexibility included. A familiar  
user interface in the form of GenLink®-DCP is used  
to program, monitor and change the parameters in  
the unit. The interface appears the same as it does  
for the PM-DCP.  
CHANGING THE CONTROLLER  
CONFIGURATION  
The H-100 Control Panel controller is setup in the  
factory to match the product it is shipped with and  
generally no changes are required. For spares pur-  
poses the controller can be re-configured in the field  
using the GenLink software tool and a PC.  
Specialized programs are built into the H-100 Control  
Panel to allow customers to configure spare I/O to  
their own needs. For example, built in Integrated  
Logic Controller (ILC) logic can eliminate the need  
for ancillary external controllers. Everything can be  
user customized from measurements to alarms to  
the screen displays.  
If you need to change the function of the panel the  
best way to get a basic setup for a product is to use  
GenLink to download a “product file”. This will setup  
all the basic parameters and just leave customization  
and calibration to be done. Product files are available  
on the web site for downloading cross referenced to  
product serial numbers/generic product types. The  
manufacturer does not recommend changing the  
settings individually for a product as this is labori-  
ous and prone to human error. Some of the settings  
require detailed knowledge of things like governor  
settings which are not easily discernable.  
Why do we do this? Having one set of control firm-  
ware buys us the economy of scale which can be  
passed on to the customer. It also has great technical  
advantages. The H-100 Control Panel and all PM-DCP  
products are built around a common “core” of firm-  
ware. This provides EVERY product with the same  
technical tools. For example, both the H-100 Control  
Panel and PM-DCP products can call out for assis-  
tance via a modem, every product can provide trend-  
ing data for its measured parameters, any measured  
value can be setup to create alarms or warnings, each  
product has a built in ILC, etc. H-100 Control Panel  
is very flexible.  
Some configurations are changeable from the H-100  
Control Panel touch pad and displays. These configu-  
rations will be described later and include:  
• Setting Display Contrast  
• Setting System Time and Date  
• Setting up/Enabling Internal Exercise  
• Enabling Interface with Generac Commercial  
Transfer Switch (HTS)  
FEATURES  
• Local/remote connection to a PC for GenLink®-  
DCP communication.  
CUSTOMIZATION  
• Interface with up to four Generac Commercial  
The controller is designed to be very flexible and  
allow great levels of customization via the GenLink  
tool. Once you have customized your controller, you  
should save the settings away to floppy or hard disk  
for backup. This can be done during the customiza-  
tion process, or at any time subsequent to customiza-  
tion by uploading the settings from the controller to  
GenLink and then saving them to disk. The digital  
outputs can be set to turn on from any one of a list  
of functions, or they can be used as part of the built-  
in ILC. The digital inputs can be moved, inverted,  
renamed, given delay times, made alarms, used  
in the ILC, logged/not logged, etc. Refer to the sec-  
tion “MEASUREMENT ENGINE” for details. Analog  
inputs are dealt with in the same section.

ANALOG MATHS  
THE MEASUREMENT "ENGINE"  
The measurement “engine” is the key feature of the  
system. All the inputs to the controller are processed  
by this module. Each physical input is measured and  
the result processed by an individual set of rules that  
are set via a PC and GenLink. Normally, a product  
is delivered with the inputs and outputs pre-con-  
figured and nothing needs to be done, however the  
manufacturer has provided complete flexibility to  
each measurement (except where product safety is  
concerned). The inputs are divided into analog and  
digital channels.  
Each of the 23 channels is processed by a set of mea-  
suring rules using constants that are set via GenLink.  
Usually these constants can be changed by the cus-  
tomer. In the following illustration, the measurement  
is represented by M and the GenLink constants are  
in italics. The measurement is processed in the fol-  
lowing order and the result is then stored for cus-  
tomer display or use.  
M = M * Calibration Factor  
This is used to calibrate out any reading inaccura-  
cies where calibration factor is a number such that  
1024 is equivalent to 1, so it’s really M * calibration  
factor/ 1024. GenLink will hide this computation so  
you can enter floating point numbers such as 1.1 or  
0.987 etc.  
ANALOG CHANNELS  
There are 23 analog channels of which 14 have fixed  
functions. The remaining 9 channels are split between  
product specific inputs (such as oil temperature),  
and customer spares. The exact split depends on the  
product. Table 1 shows the channel allocation.  
THEN  
Some of the 14 fixed channels are “DERIVED” read-  
ings in that they are calculated from the other read-  
ings. For example, power is calculated from both volt-  
age and current. These are not real hardware chan-  
nels, but they result in an analog reading that can be  
treated as a “fixed channel” just like any other.

Where x can be:  
Setpoints  
1. THERMISTOR  
2. CURRENT  
3. LINEAR  
4. PRESSURE  
5. UNALTERED  
6. POLY_3RD  
There can be up to 4 setpoints to support 2 alarms  
and 2 warnings, of which there can be a maximum of  
2 GT or LT types. The setpoints are in the same units  
that the measurement is displayed in.  
Delay Time  
There are 2 delay fields that can be set with differ-  
ent times in each. Any or none of these times can be  
applied to any of the alarms or warnings via GenLink  
radio buttons.  
7. POLY_2ND  
8. POLY_1ST  
9. POLY_1ST_N1  
10. POLY_1ST_N2  
11. CAL_SCALE  
12. CFM_SENSOR  
13. GEN_FP_POLY  
The function x may use any of the coefficients 1,2,3  
and in some cases will use calibration factor as a 4th  
coefficient (in this case use scaling factor for calibra-  
tion). The coefficients are used to allow adjustment  
of the basic functions to cater for future or alternate  
sensors. They perform different tasks in different  
functions, see APPENDIX A for further details. Note  
that if calibration factor is used as a coefficient, it will  
be shown (and entered) by GenLink as (actual coef-  
ficient/1024).  
For example, a measurement may have to be greater  
than the setpoint for 1 second to cause an alarm, or  
less than another setpoint for 2 seconds to cause a  
warning. The resolution of this time interval is 0.1  
seconds.  
Hysteresis  
Applied hysteresis in display or final units (for exam-  
ple battery voltage is displayed in units of 1/100ths  
of a volt). When an alarm/warning has gone active,  
the hysteresis is subtracted from the GT setpoint or  
added to the LT setpoint to calculate the modified  
setpoint needed to make the alarm go inactive.  
For example, if the coefficient is -378, it will be dis-  
played as -0.36914.  
Shutdown  
When set, this alarm condition (alarms only, not  
warnings) has been selected to shutdown the engine.  
THEN  
M =M * Scaling Factor:  
Dialout  
Where scaling factor is a number such that 1024 is  
equivalent to 1, so it’s really M * scaling factor/1024.  
GenLink will hide this computation so you can enter  
floating point numbers such as 2.1 or 0.987 etc.  
When this field is set, the dialout feature is selected.  
If an alarm or warning occurs for this channel the  
processor will automatically call for assistance via  
telephone (if the external modem option is fitted).  
Dialout can be selected either for warnings, alarms,  
neither, or both. There is a predefined and prioritized  
list of 10 phone numbers that will be tried. The con-  
troller expects GenLink to answer the call and log the  
fault. It is possible for the customer to program any  
Modbus device with a modem to respond to the call.  
ANALOG ALARMS  
Each of the 23 channels is processed by a set of  
alarm rules using constants that are set via GenLink.  
Usually these constants can be changed by the  
customer. Note that all alarms will be entered into  
the alarm log and will operate the audible alarm.  
Warnings will operate the audible alarm also, and will  
be put in the alarm log. The following list shows the  
alarm properties.  
Active When  
You can select other criteria to determine when  
alarms and warnings become active. This is further  
divided in that you can define these criteria indepen-  
dently for LT and GT alarm types.  
Types  
This section is used to turn alarms and warnings on  
or off and define if the input must be greater than a  
value (GT) or less than a value (LT). There can be up  
to 2 alarms and 2 warnings, of which there can be a  
maximum of 2 GT or LT types.  
ALWAYS ENABLED = This alarm or warning is  
always enabled under every circumstance.  
HOLD OFF = Alarms/Warnings with this qualifica-  
tion only become active after a programmable hold  
off time has been met. The hold off timer starts after  
the engine has started. Stopping the engine cancels  
the hold off timer.

H-100 Control Panel Technical Manual  
IMMEDIATE = Alarms/Warnings with this qualifica-  
tion only become active immediately after the engine  
has started.  
OUTPUT FUNCTIONS  
Output functions are flags that are set/reset by the  
internal program to indicate a certain status, for  
example “Engine Running”. The Measurement Engine  
allows these flags to be treated as “channels” that can  
be made into alarms/warnings, display messages,  
operate real outputs and also be fed as inputs to the  
ILC. For example, use the “Ready To Start” output  
function to operate a relay by mapping it to a physical  
output via GenLink, or you could feed it into the ILC  
to do combinatorial logic.  
Sensor Failure Check  
When this field is set, the input sensor is checked  
for short circuit or open circuit failure. Normally  
each of the inputs are conditioned externally to be 4-  
20mA current loops. Any currents outside this range  
indicate a sensor failure. This will cause an alarm to  
occur. The alarm can be selected to shut down the  
engine if so desired via the next field. The alarm will  
be entered in the alarm log.  
See TABLE OF OUTPUT FUNCTIONS in appendix  
B.  
Shutdown on Sensor Failure  
SPARE ANALOG CHANNELS  
When this field is set, the engine will shut down if  
there is a sensor failure. If the field is unchecked, the  
failure will just cause an alarm message to appear  
and the audible alarm to sound. The alarm will be  
entered in the alarm log.  
Depending upon the particular configuration of your  
product, the following input channels may be avail-  
able for custom measurements:

When set, the channel measurement is compared to  
the setpoint with either the GT or LT options. Once  
the condition is met (eg measurement GT setpoint)  
the event is logged along with a date/time stamp into  
the volatile memory based event log. Six other param-  
eters that can be chosen by the customer will also be  
logged. Volatile means that when power is removed  
from the unit, the memory will be lost.

• Preheat Enable — The following four options are  
selectable (only for Diesel):  
- Preheat disabled.  
ENGINE MANAGEMENT  
The engine management module is very similar to  
that used in the manufacturer's other products. It  
controls engine cranking, engine starting, engine  
running and engine stopping. These functions are  
performed to a set of “rules” that can be customized  
via parameters from GenLink. In turn, the module  
needs to know certain things about the engine which  
it expects to be programmed in from GenLink.  
- Preheat during cranking.  
- Preheat before and during cranking.  
- Preheat before and during cranking and until  
load ready.  
The Preheat output pin shares its function with the  
Air/Fuel Solenoid output. You must choose one of  
the two functions as follows:  
GENERATOR PARAMETERS  
- To select Air/Fuel - set the “Diesel” parameter on  
the governor settings page to “No”. Set Preheat to  
“Disabled”  
- To select Preheat - set the “Diesel Y/N” param-  
eter on the governor settings page to “Yes”. Set  
Preheat to one of the enable selections.  
• Engine Cooldown Time — The generator will run  
for at least this time after remote start becomes  
inactive.  
• Engine Flywheel Teeth — Number of flywheel teeth  
or pulses per revolution for RPM input. RPM 1 is  
used for the engine controllers.  
• CT Ratio/Generator — Current Transformer ratio  
for the generator. This value is the result from  
reducing the CT ratio. E.G. If the CT ratio is  
100 amps to 5 amps, the resulting value is 20.  
Normally, the CT ratio will be x amps to 1 amp on

actuator. The following types are available:  
- POWERFLOW — Barber Coleman Powerflow,  
voltage driven without position feedback  
VOLTAGE REGULATOR (OPTION)  
All panels include automatic voltage regulation as  
standard. There are various settings that can be  
made to the voltage regulator via GenLink. The set-

alternator.  
• VF Corner 1 / 2. — These are used for v/f control  
to reduce the output voltage when a large load is  
applied that slows down the generator. If the fre-  
quency drops below these setpoints, the voltage  
is reduced proportionally as the frequency drops  
according to the Volts per Hertz ratio.  
• Panel Type — Indicates the panel type that the H-  
100 Control Panel has been programmed to be. It  
will normally be H-100.  
• Actuator Offset — Number corresponding to lowest  
actuator position (Close Throttle).  
Volts per Hertz — Number of volts to reduce the  
generator voltage for each hertz below VF Corner  
1 frequency.  
• Actuator Fullscale — Number corresponding to  
highest actuator position (Open Throttle).  
• Actuator Normal Start Position — The position  
the actuator will be parked at from start up until  
the “Start detection RPM” is reached. If “soft start”  
is enabled, this is also the maximum position of  
the throttle until the Target Frequency - 3 Hz is  
reached. Therefore, if “soft start” is enabled, the  
actuator start position MUST be high enough to  
reach, Target Frequency - 3 Hz.  
• Actuator QuietTest® Start Position — The position  
the actuator will be parked at from start up until  
the “Start detection RPM” is reached. If “soft start”  
is enabled, this is also the maximum position of the  
throttle until the QuietTest® Target Frequency - 3  
Hz is reached. Therefore, if “soft start” is enabled,  
the actuator start position MUST be high enough  
to reach, QuietTest® Target Frequency - 3 Hz.  
• Soft Start Time — The time to stay at each soft  
start step before moving on to the next step. ( Only  
applies if soft start is enabled ).  
• Soft Start Frequency — An entry of 0 Hz disables  
soft start. Any other value enables soft start which  
ramps up the generator frequency at a rate deter-  
mined by “Soft Start Time” to minimize smoke.  
This value selects the first frequency to target after  
start up. Once this frequency is attained, the gen-  
erator will hold this frequency for the “Soft Start  
Time” and then move to the next step. Each step

selected, this is the maximum value the integral  
is allowed. If Anti-Windup” is selected, this is the  
integral value above which the anti-windup algo-  
rithm becomes active.  
REMOTE TRENDING  
GenLink performs remote trending by polling the  
controller for the selected data at the desired rate.  
Up to 8 analog channels can be monitored at a 0.3  
second rate. If a faster rate is desired, reducing the  
number of analog channels monitored will allow for a  
0.1 second rate. The polling rate can be varied from  
0.1 seconds to several hours. GenLink can save the  
data to a file and/or display it as a near real-time  
graph. The file is MS Excel compatible ( CSV format  
). Examples of things you can trend are the generator  
frequency response (in 0.1 second steps) to a block  
load or Generated power over a day.  
• Pwm Counts per ampx10 — Number of PWM  
counts required to drive one tenth of an amp into  
a linear current driven actuator. This only applies  
to the “Linear Current” actuator type.  
• Desynch Offset — Offset of –0.9 to +0.9 Hertz to be  
applied to the target frequency to improve passive  
synchronizing by Automatic Transfer Switches. If  
an in-phase or synchronized transfer is required,  
use this setting to adjust the generator frequency  
to 0.1 Hz above nominal Utility frequency.

LOCAL TRENDING  
No Trigger  
The event trigger is ignored and samples are continu-  
Local trending is done inside the controller where up  
to 1000 samples can be stored in memory. GenLink  
provides an interface to select the analog channels to  
be trended, the rate to be sampled at, and optional  
triggers to be used to specify when to sample. Up to 6  
analog channels can be sampled. However, the 1000  
samples are divided by the number of channels. For  
example, there will be 1000 samples of 1 channel or  
only 166 samples of each of 6 channels. The analog  
samples can be sampled at one of three basic polling  
rates: Low Speed, Mid Speed, and High Speed. For  
the Low Speed and Mid Speed modes, there are also  
several settings that can be used to determine when  
to sample. GenLink can save the data to a file and/or  
display it as a snap-shot graph. The file is MS Excel  
compatible ( CSV format ).  
ally being placed into the buffer.  
Pre-Trigger  
Samples are continually being placed into the buffer  
until the event trigger becomes true. Then no more  
samples are placed into the buffer.  
Post-Trigger  
No samples are placed into the buffer until the event  
trigger becomes true. Then samples are placed in the  
buffer until it is full.  
Pre- and Post-Trigger  
Samples are continually being placed in the buffer  
until the event trigger becomes true. This point is  
considered ½ of the buffer. Samples continue to be  
placed into the buffer until it is full.  
GENLINK LOCAL TRENDING SETUP  
When setting up the local trending, verify that the  
Armed” box is unchecked and press Apply”. To  
change the settings with the trending armed may  
result in corrupted data. Select a rate at which to  
take samples.  
Pressing the “View” button will show a graph of  
the samples in the buffer at the time the button is  
pressed. The graph has a “Save” button that allows  
the user to save the data out to a file in a MS Excel  
compatible ( CSV ) format.  
• Low Speed rate samples the processed analog  
channel values at a rate that is able to be set in  
increments of 0.1 seconds.  
• Mid Speed rate is about 2 milliseconds which  
captures the new analog channel value as soon  
as it is processed by the measurement and alarm  
modules.  
• High Speed rate is 0.4 milliseconds and is reserved  
for the raw AC wave forms of generator voltage and  
current.  
There are 6 pull-down boxes that allow the selection of  
up to 6 analog channels. All channel pull-down boxes  
after the first pull-down box with NULL CHANNEL  
selected are ignored. If High Speed is selected, the  
pull-down boxes are not used. Instead, there are 6  
check boxes that can be used to select which voltage  
and current lines are to be trended.  
THE ILC  
The built-in ILC uses simple combinatorial logic to  
generate digital outputs and limited generator con-  
trol. The ILC uses ladder logic for programming,  
and a separate offline programming tool is avail-  
able to generate the ILC programs. These are then  
downloaded via GenLink and are started or stopped  
by means of a checkbox on the GenLink ILC page.  
Once downloaded and started, they will remain active  
unless they are stopped via GenLink, even if power  
is cycled.  
The I/O scan time of the ILC is about 100 ms worst  
case. This means that all inputs and outputs are  
scanned within 100 ms. Also, the ILC processes  
one rung every 5 ms, so 5 rungs will take 25 ms.  
However, this is in parallel with the I/O scan and not  
added to it.  
The “Capture When” pull-down box allows the trend-  
ing to be limited to the engine running or engine being  
stopped. If the “Stop at End of Buffer” box is selected,  
then the trending will start when the “Capture When”  
condition is true and stop when the 1000 samples  
have been taken.  
The offline tool uses graphic symbols to design the  
“rungs” of the ladder logic. The rungs are simple and  
can only have 2 combinatorial elements in them, but  
by the use of “soft contacts” the output of one rung  
can be fed into the input of another to provide more  
combinations. As well as the logical combinations,  
there are also analog comparisons, counters and tim-  
ers available for use in the rungs. As an example this  
allows the following type of logic to be built:  
Any digital or analog channel can be used as an event  
trigger. The event trigger needs to be set up in that  
channel's setup screen. Checking the “Capture Only  
When Trigger is True” box will cause the samples to  
only be taken while the event trigger is true. Checking  
the “Capture on Shutdown Alarm” will cause the sam-  
ples to start upon the setting of a shutdown alarm.  
The event trigger can be used to start sampling, stop  
sampling, or center the sampling by selecting the  
appropriate radio button:  
IF (in automatic) AND (engine running) AND (air  
temperature >25 deg) FOR (20 seconds) THEN  
OPERATE (output 7).
