Integrated solution for chp control of gas engines

The newly developed and extensively tested CHP control unit for gas engines combines all the benefi ts of the HEINZMANN control systems: Engine, generator, CHP and heat management as well as various monitoring functions are integrated in one central control unit.

Depending on customer requirements, three versions of XIOSCHP with increasing functionality are available: BASIC, MEDIUM, EXTENDED. Depending on the version, the engine management includes functions from pure speed control and mixture control to ignition control and knock control or engine monitoring with a data logger.
