1.2 Safety requirements for maintenance and repair work


1.2.1 Safety requirements for startup
Before first using the product, it must be installed in accordance with the instructions and approved to MTU
specifications..
Whenever the device or system is taken into operation
 • All maintenance and repair work must have been completed
 • Any loose parts must have been removed from rotating machine components
 • All personnel must be clear of the danger zone represented by moving parts
Immediately after taking the device or system into operation, the control and display elements as well as the
monitoring, signaling and alarm systems must be tested to ensure satisfactory operation.
1.2.2 Safety requirements for operation
The emergency procedures must be practiced on a regular basis.
The operator must be familiar with the control and display elements.
The operator must know the effects of any action he/she performs.
The operator must proceed with the individual steps as specified in the documentation.
During operation, the display elements and monitoring assemblies must be supervised with respect to current
operating states, violation of limit values as well as warnings and alarm messages.
If a fault in the system is detected or signaled by the system
 • Report it to the person in charge
 • Evaluate the message
 • Take emergency action as required, e.g. emergency engine stop
1.2.3 Engine operation
Wear ear protectors when the engine is running!
Ventilate the engine room adequately!
Mop up any leaked or spilled fluids and lubricants immediately, or soak them up with a suitable bonding agent.
Exhaust gases produced by combustion engines are toxic. Inhaling exhaust gases is harmful to health.
Exhaust gas pipework must be leak-tight and routed to atmosphere.
Do not touch battery or alternator terminals or cables when the engine is running!
Inadequate protection of electrical components can lead to electric shocks and serious injuries.
Never undo water, oil, fuel, compressed-air or hydraulic oil lines when the engine is running!
1.2.4 Maintenance and repair work
Strict adherence to maintenance and repair instructions is a significant safety factor.
Never perform maintenance or repair work with the engine running unless expressly permitted to do so. Lock-out
and tag-out the engine to preclude undesired starting. Disconnect the battery when electric starters are used. Close
the main valve of the compressed air system and vent the compressed air line when pneumatic starters are used.
Affix a “Do Not Start” sign in the operating room or attach one to the control facility! Keep bystanders out of the
way!
Never attempt to rectify faults or carry out repairs if you do not have the necessary experience or special tools
required! Maintenance and repair work may only be carried out by authorized, qualified personnel.
Only use adequate, calibrated tools.
Never work on engines or components which are only suspended on lifting gear or cranes. Always support them
adequately before commencing maintenance or repair work.

E532291/01E 11-04 © MTU


ECU8 8

Ensure that all personnel is clear of the danger zone before cranking the engine. Ensure that all safety guards are
installed and all tools and loose parts have been removed from the engine after performing work.
Escaping pressurized fluids can penetrate clothing and skin and cause serious injury. Depressurize fluid and
lubricant systems and compressed air lines before commencing work!
Never bend fuel injection lines or install lines which have been subsequently bent. Keep fuel injection lines and
their connections scrupulously clean. Seal off all openings with caps and covers whenever lines are removed or
opened.
Avoid damaging fuel lines in the course of maintenance and repair work. When installing, tighten line unions to the
specified tightening torques and ensure that all fixtures and dampers are fitted properly.
Ensure that all fuel injection lines and pressurized oil lines have sufficient clearance to prevent contact with other
components. Never route fuel or oil lines in the vicinity of hot parts unless explicitly intended for installation in such
areas by design.
Elastomers (e.g. Viton sealing rings) are generally safe under normal working conditions. However, when exposed
to fire or temperatures
exceeding 300 °C, the material decomposes. Hydrogen flouride vapors are released as a result. Acid produced in
this way causes serious burning by skin contact. Never touch elastomer seals which appear to be charred or
resinous with your bare hands! Always wear protective gloves!
Beware of hot fluids in lines, pipes and chambers Risk of burning!
Observe the cooling-down period for components which have been heated up to facilitate assembly or disassembly
Risk of burning!
Do not touch hot parts of the compressor and exhaust gas system Risk of burning!
Take care when removing vent screws or plugs on the engine. Cover the screw or plug with a rag to prevent fluids
escaping under pressure. The risk of accidents increases if the engine was only shut down a short time ago and
the fluids are still hot.
Take care when draining hot fluids and lubricants. Risk of scalding!
Catch fluids and lubricants in a vessel, wipe up spilled fluids or use binder.
Ventilate the engine room well when changing engine oil or working on the fuel system!
Use safe stepladders and work platforms when working above head height.
Ensure that engine components are set down safely!
To avoid back injury, adults may only lift parts weighing between max. 10 kg and max. 30 kg depending on age and
sex, therefore:
 Use lifting gear or call for assistance.
 Ensure that all chains, hooks, slings etc. are tested and approved, have adequate lifting
capacity and that hooks are positioned correctly. Never subject lifting eyes to lateral pull.
Keep everything meticulously clean when performing maintenance and repair work on the machine. Ensure that no
loose parts are left in/on the machine after completing maintenance and repair work.
1.2.5 Welding
Welding is not permitted on the engine or attached auxiliary equipment!
Never use the engine as a ground terminal! This prevents the welding current passing through the engine and
burning bearings, sliding surfaces and tooth flanks which can lead to seizure and damage.
Never route welding cables over or near the wiring harnesses of MTU systems. The welding current can induce
interfering voltages in the wiring harnesses which may damage the electrical system.
The ground terminal of the welding equipment must not be connected further than 60 cm away from the welding
point.
Remove any parts (e.g. exhaust pipe) requiring welding from the engine beforehand.

E532291/01E 11-04 © MTU


ECU8 9

It is not necessary to disconnect plugs and connectors from the MTU electronic system in order to perform welding
providing that the power supply master switch is set to “Off” and the battery cables are disconnected from the
positive and negative terminals.
1.2.6 Force-fitting
Use only the jigs and fixtures specified in the work schedule and assembly instructions to force parts on and off.
Never exceed the maximum admissible forcing pressure of the respective jig when forcing parts on and off.
The HP lines used to force parts on and off hydraulically are tested to 3,800 bar.
Never bend or use force on pressurized lines!
Note the following points before commencing any forcing process:
 Vent the forcing jig, pumps and pipework system at the relevant points of the system (e.g. open vent plugs,
pump until bubble-free oil emerges, close vent plugs).
 Screw the jig on with the piston retracted when forcing parts on.
 Screw the jig on with the piston extended when forcing parts off.
Screw the spindle into the shaft end until sealed on forcing jigs featuring a central expansion pressure supply.
Ensure that all personnel stands well clear when force-fitting and removing components hydraulically. There is a
risk of the component suddenly freeing itself from the pressurized fixture when the system is still under pressure.
Check all jigs and fixtures at regular intervals prior to use (crack testing).
1.2.7 Working on electrical/electronic assemblies
Always obtain permission from the person in charge before commencing maintenance and repair work and before
switching off any parts of the electronic system required to conduct such work.
Switch off the power supply of the affected areas before commencing work on any assembly. Any work requiring a
power supply is explicitly described as such in the appropriate sections of the manual.
Gases emanating from the battery are explosive. Avoid sparks and naked flames. Avoid skin and clothing contact
with battery acid (electrolyte). Wear goggles. Never place tools on the battery. Check polarity before connecting the
battery. Escaping acid or bursting battery cases may cause injury if battery polarity is reversed.
Avoid damaging cabling when removing parts, and re-install avoiding any risk of damaging the cabling by sharp
edges, friction or contact with hot surfaces when the engine is running.
Never secure cabling to pipework bearing fluids!
On completion of maintenance and repair work, any cables that have been disconnected must be reconnected
properly and appropriately secured.
Always test function and operation of devices and systems following repair. Checking repaired components in
isolation without integrating them in the overall system is not sufficient.
Secure cables with suitable cable clamps where contact with mechanical parts presents a risk of chafing!
Do not use cable ties as these can be removed for purposes of maintenance and repair and then not replaced on
completion.
Store spare parts properly prior to replacement, i.e. protect them from moisture in particular. Package faulty
electronic components and assemblies properly for transport, i.e. protect them from moisture and impact and wrap
them in antistatic foil if necessary.
1.2.8 Working with laser equipment
Always wear special laser goggles when working with laser equipment!
Laser equipment is capable of generating extremely intense beams of light by stimulated emission in the visible,
infrared or ultraviolet spectral ranges. Laser beams may cause damage as a result of their photochemical, thermal
or optomechanical effects. First and foremost is the risk of irreparable eye damage.
Laser equipment must be equipped with safety features which ensure safe operation in accordance with their
respective class and intended use.
Only the following laser equipment may be used as a guide beam and for surveying work:

ECU8 10

 Category 1, 2 or 3A laser equipment


 Category 3B laser equipment operating in the visible wavelength range (400 nm to 700 nm) with a
maximum output of 5 mW and with a beam axis or area aligned such as to preclude any risk of eye injury.
1.2.9 Operation of electrical equipment
Certain parts of the electrical equipment are live in operation.
Noncompliance with the warning instructions given for this equipment may result in serious injury or damage to
property.

2.4.3 SmartConnect
2.4.3.1 Functional description
SmartConnect features:
1 DIP switches to change speed demand, frequency and droop settings
2 Four-figure display to indicate ECU fault numbers
3 Interface to connect DiaSys

SmartConnect comprises a unit equipped with connectors and a display and includes pre-programmed software.
2.4.3.2 Description of SmartConnect hardware
SmartConnect visualizes faults from the connected ECU which are transmitted on CAN1. It also allows specific
modes to be set for various applications using DIP switches.
It is possible to connect dialog systems (CAN1 and CAN2) via the additional DIASYS connector with a 24V supply
for dialog PCs. Software and parameters can be downloaded to the ECU via a USB flash stick (USB -> RS485).
Note: The USB interface and RS485 to the ECU are not active in SC1-01.

The figure below provides an overview of the interfaces and features of


SmartConnect SC1-01. The housing is designed for installation on a DIN rail.

ECU8 21

The block circuit diagram shows the internal design of the SmartConnect. The main assembly is the NXP
microcontroller which realizes all functions.
The integral CAN repeater before the DiaSys interface means that the limitations presented by the approx. 1-2 m
long connecting cable no longer apply. A significantly longer cable can be connected here (up to 50 m).
Bus termination with the two 120 ohm resistors at the two CAN interfaces CAN1 and CAN2 can be configured, i.e.
these termination resistors must be removed from the two connectors if additional devices featuring CAN interfaces
are connected there.

2.4.3.4 Settings
2.4.3.4.1 Summary of DIP switch functions
The SmartConnect unit is equipped with 6 DIP switches which allow ECU8 to be configured (there are a total of
eight switches, however the last two switches, 7 and 8, are only used internally by the SmartConnect).
The switch settings on the SmartConnect are transmitted cyclically to the ECU once per second in a message on
CAN1.
Changes to the switch settings only take effect after restarting the ECU.
The configurations which can be set with the switches are preset and cannot be changed. The figures below show
the assignment of the switches. Switch no. 6 has no function in the present SmartConnect version as CANopen is
not implemented as yet. In future, this switch will allow a choice between J1939 and CANopen for CAN2 as soon
as CANopen is available. J1939 only is used on CAN2 at the current time.

The figure below shows the assignment of the 8 DIP switches.

Used by TKE

Speed demand is set as follows:

Speed demand
The speed demand can be set using the three switches (i.e. 8 variants)
Switch default settings:
000 = 0 = ECU parameter default settings = Speed demand up/down direct
(variants 1 and 2 would thus be identical)

2.4.3.4.2 Summary of alarm display functions


The three-figure ECU fault numbers are shown on the display of the SmartConnect unit when it is running. The
ECU fault numbers run as a banner on the display. This means that all active faults in the ECU are displayed
consecutively at one-second intervals. “----” appears on the display of the SmartConnect unit for one second when
every active fault has been displayed once. This indicates that all faults have been displayed once and that the
fault numbers now appear again from the beginning.
“----” remains steady on the display if not fault numbers have been received from the ECU.
The ECU transmits the faults displayed on the SmartConnect unit via CAN1.
Fault code “F000” is indicated on the display if the SmartConnect unit fails to detect ECU8 on CAN1 (e.g. as the
cable has not been connected).

E532291/01E 11-04 © MTU


ECU8 25

The following two fault numbers are assigned to the SmartConnect unit:
 Fault number 696 (USB faulty)
 Fault number 697 (RS485 faulty)
These two faults also run as a banner on the display and are written in the ECU8 fault memory. Should these faults
occur at the SmartConnect unit and no ECU8 is connected to CAN1, the SmartConnect displays fault number F050
instead of 696 in case of a USB fault and fault number F051 instead of 697.
The table below lists all alarms:

fault has occurred at the USB interface of the SmartConnect
F050 696 unit. This alarm is transmitted to ECU8 when one is connected
to the CAN1 bus. 696 then appears on the display. F050
appears on the display instead if ECU8 is not present.
AL SmartConnect RS485 Error. This alarm is displayed when a
fault has occurred at the RS485 interface of the SmartConnect
F051 697 unit. This alarm is transmitted to ECU8 when one is connected
to the CAN1 bus. 697 then appears on the display. F051
appears on the display instead if ECU8 is not present.

2.4.4 Engine Identification Label EIL


The Engine Ident Label EIL is an electronic rating plate. It is attached to the engine, cannot be removed and is an
absolute necessity to operate the engine.
The EIL is connected to the ECU by a two-pin connector on the engine wiring harness. For trouble-free operation
ensure that the wiring between EIL and ECU is connected properly. Check the wiring if the “616 AL EIL Error”
fault message is signaled.
Furthermore, the EIL must be inspected periodically for visible damage or manipulation.

The EIL ensures that only the data record specifically programmed for the engine concerned can be used. The
engine is shut down after 15 minutes should it be necessary to use the ECU of another engine on the engine
concerned. The “615 AL EIL Protection” yellow alarm and the “454 SS Power Reduction Active” red alarm are
signaled during this period. This makes it possible to pinpoint or narrow down the cause of a fault by replacing with
an ECU from another engine.

In case of fault, a new ECU must be ordered from MTU including a valid data record for the engine concerned and
then installed.

Note: Manipulation of the EIL renders the warranty null and void. Furthermore, normal engine operation is
subsequently no longer possible.

3.2 Ignition (IGI) / emergency stop (ESI) function


3.2.1 Ignition Input (IGI TL15)
The IGI input can be used for two functions:
1. ECU on/off when power supply is applied to the unit (TL 30).
2. Emergency stop function working on the “closed-circuit principle”
The input is connected to 24V (UBatt) if the function is not used.
The user can switch the unit on/off with the IGI input as follows:
 Input level = low to high - “wake”
The ECU is activated, the microcontroller boots up, executes its “start up” routine and keeps the power
stage “locked on”.
 Input level = low to high - “power down”
Deactivates the IOS (Injector Output Stage) for all cylinders. This state is stored and can only be reset by
the software. All data and alarms saved “Data Storage”. Internal supply voltages switched off.
The response of the ECU can be configured by the application software when the ESI has been activated (CAN
message, ...)
3.2.2 Emergency Stop Input (ESI)
Completely de-energizing the Engine Control Unit in order to initiate an emergency engine stop is INADMISSIBLE!
The ESI input is activated by a NO contact connected to UBatt (24V).
The input is not connected if the function is not used.
The ESI input immediately switches off the IOS (Injector Output Stage) by the hardware.
The engine is stopped immediately in this way. Engine data and alarms are then stored in the external flash
memory.
 Input level = low ->
The ECU detects this input state as a disruption when a 33kohm ±10% parallel resistor is connected. The
function can be programmed in the software.
 Input level = high ->
Deactivates the IOS (Injector Output Stage) for all cylinders. This state is stored and can only be reset by
the software. “Open-circuit principle”"
The response of the ECU can be configured by the software when the ESI has been activated (CAN message, ...)

5 Wiring
5.1 Power supply
5.1.1 Power supply
5.1.1.1 General information
Configuration of the power supply including the start button is the responsibility of the OEM.
This chapter therefore depicts straightforward power distribution wiring by way of recommendation only.
The following basic factors concerning the supply of power must be observed:
 Use a 2-pole master switch
 Protect all units separately with power circuit breakers
 Initiation of manual emergency stop, or by IGI, or by ESI (see chap. 7.1)
All these requirements are taken into consideration in the recommendations below. As a basic rule, all cable
connections must be established and distributed by means of terminal blocks.
The length of the supply cable from the battery to ECU8 must not exceed 25 m including the connection box.
6 pins (6x2.5mm2) are provided for the power supply in the connector (X1). The voltage drop between battery and
ECU8 for the 24V+ and GND line is load-dependent. Ensure that ECU8 has a minimum continuous voltage of 20V+
at the supply pins. The average ECU8 current depends on the number of engine cylinders, the speed and the
connected consumers.
Note: Take the additional voltage drop into account when a terminal box is interposed.

E532291/01E 11-04 © MTU


ECU8 56

Example: Voltage drop for various cable lengths (Rcu and fuse taken into consideration):

Power consumption of Engine Control Unit ECU8 = Max. 33 A

ECU8 57

5.1.1.2 Example for power supply configuration (recommendation)

BATT Power supply F001-3 Contactor S1 Master switch


ECU Engine Control Unit ECU8 GND Ground S3 START

5.1.1.3 Master switch


The supply voltage for the entire electronic engine management system is switched on and off by master switch
S001.
5.1.1.4 Power circuit breakers
Power circuit breakers are provided for the following areas:
F001 6A Input IGI_IN at Engine Control Unit : Ignition on Input DI. at Engine Control Unit
F002 25A Engine Control Unit supply voltage
F003 6A Pushbutton / START
5.1.1.5 Pushbutton S003
Pressing the pushbutton trips the start command. Input DI7. of the Engine Control Unit is connected to 24V DC.
5.1.1.6 Emergency stop
Completely de-energizing the Engine Control Unit in order to initiate an emergency engine stop is INADMISSIBLE.
Note: The event is recorded in an internal memory (counter) should the engine be shut down in this way
nevertheless. Alarm no. 549 “AL Power fail detected” is generated and written in the fault memory when the Engine
Control Unit is switched back on.

5.1.2 Grounding concept


The grounding concept envisages total isolation of generator ground and supply voltage ground.
5.1.2.1 Grounding concept

W01 System cable M Engine X1 System cable connector


W02 Engine wiring harness G Generator X2 Engine wiring harness connector
ECU Engine Control Unit ECU8 BATT Battery PE Ground connection

Warning: Supply voltage ground (- GND) must not be connected to generator ground at any point! The crossed-
out connection in the illustration must therefore never be established!

The following ground connections must be established:


 Cable -W01 / system connection: The shielding of the cable for connection to the system is connected on
the ECU side to the housing of the Engine Control Unit via connector X1 (factory-connected).
On the open end, the shielding must be connected to the housing in which the terminal block and the
customer controller are located (switchgear cabinet) (to be ensured by OEM).
 Cable -W02 / engine wiring harness: The shielding is connected to the housing of the Engine Control Unit
via the connector plugs of the engine wiring harness (factory-connected).
 The engine must be grounded by means of a ground strap (PE). Refer to the relevant MTN standard
“Grounding engines and systems” for details of execution, cross-sections etc..

5.1.3 CAN bus


5.1.3.1 General information
The CAN bus must be laid and connected carefully according to specifications in order to achieve the highest
possible signal-to-noise ratio and thus maximum reliability in operation.
Note: Failure of the CAN bus inevitably leads to serious restrictions even to the extent of total engine failure. CAN
bus execution is therefore central to ensuring reliability of the entire system!
5.1.3.2 Cabling requirements
The cabling used must have the following electrical properties at the least:
 Impedance Z: 120 (± 10%)
 Specific resistance rb: Max 50 /m at 20°C
 Specific signal delay tp: 5 ns/m
 Specific capacity between conductors cb: Max. 75 pF/m
 Specific capacity of conductors to shielding cs: Max. 110 pF/m
5.1.3.3 Block diagram
The figure is a schematic representation showing an example of CAN bus arrangement.

SmartConnect

* Resistors may only be used at the ends of the bus.


Either at the terminal block or at the SmartConnect.

E532291/01E 11-04 © MTU


ECU8 60

Pay attention to the following points when connecting the CAN bus:
 Termination resistor: One CAN bus termination resistor (120 ) must be connected at each end of the CAN
buses.
 The shielding of the bus cable (at the switchgear cabinet) must be connected to the housing/cable entry of
the switchgear cabinet.
The (twisted) bus cable does not have to be shielded inside the switchgear cabinet.
 CAN_GND connections: The connections must not be connected to the shielding, operating voltage ground
or vehicle ground!
