After recently introducing the new generator control system SGC 352, German engine manufacturer Sky Power GmbH has added another system, the SGC 081. The starter generator control unit can be used for engines with fuel injection as well as for engines with carburetors.
“The additional Starter Generator Control SGC 081 is lighter than the generator control system we introduced previously,” said Karsten Schudt, Managing Director of Sky Power GmbH. ” The communication with the engine is also via hall effect sensors.”
The SGC 081 can not only be used to start the combustion engine, but also during generator mode for battery charging. Depending on the cooling, the new system can deliver 30A/60V, with an output of maximum 0,5kW. The SGC 081 weights 250g (0,55lbs).
The new control system has already been successfully used in the field in several projects. Motors of different series were equipped with the new control unit, including some heavy fuel (HF) applications. Additionally, the system can be used with third-party systems.
Sky Power GmbH is a leading manufacturer of 2-stroke combustion- and Wankel engines for Unmanned Aerial Systems and hybrid applications. Besides in-house development and manufacturing, Sky Power produces all engines in Germany.
