Part 9905-360 is a microprocessor-based Woodward DSLC Digital Synchronizer and Load Control. This control is designed for paralleling, synchronizing, loading, and unloading three-phase generator sets when used with a Woodward speed control and an automatic voltage regulator. This control is rated for operating temps from –40 to +70 °C (-40 to 158 F) and storage temps from –55 to +105 °C (-67 to 221 F).
A few of the 9905-360 functions include:
- Built-in diagnostics
- Setup, metering, and diagnostic capability through a handheld programmer terminal
- Automatic generator loading and unloading
- Droop, baseload, and isochronous load control capability
- Reverse power relay.
In March 1995, Woodward DSLC part number 9905-360 was replaced by part number 9905-796. The old part number will still function properly with the new DSLC part numbers in all functions except dead bus closing. For up-to-date information on the compatibility of old DSLC part numbers or on the data format of the network variables, please contact the Woodward Technical Assistance Group.
Certain precautions to protect against static damage should be followed when working with or near the control, such as touching and holding a grounded metal object to discharge the static electricity on your body to the ground before doing maintenance on the DSLC.
