DGC-2020, Digital Genset Controller

The DGC-2020 is an advanced genset control system with extensive functionality and flexibility. It's a total system solution for your emergency, stand-alone, and paralleled generator set applications. Comprehensive control, metering, and protection capabilities maximize flexibility and make it the optimal choice for a broad range of applications. The environmentally-rugged, potted design has a proven track record of reliable, worry-free operation.


  • 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-2020 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, alternate-frequency override functions make it ideal for rental and reconfigurable genset applications. The DGC-2020 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-2020's inputs and outputs with the CEM-2020 (Contact Expansion Module) and the AEM-2020 (Analog Expansion Module). You will save time and money by eliminating unnecessary external PLCs and control relaying.
  • Easy integration of the LSM-2020 (Load Share Module) to the DGC-2020 quickly adds additional functionality to the system for intuitive load sharing, demand control, genset sequencing, and Ethernet capabilities for a seamless paralleled system.
  • Intuitive BESTCOMSPlus® software simplifies setup with easy settings entry and simple drag-and-drop programmable logic, reducing the cost and commissioning time.
