Governor Controller section Features include:
The new units are microcomputer controlled thus eliminating the tedious and error prone adjustment procedure used with the old SLC100 Governor Controller.
I personally hand build and custom program each of the Controllers. Once built each Governor Controller is installed in one of my MEP-831A’s and application tested under varying loads to assure consistent operation and a defect free unit.
Wire labels are included to facilitate swapping in the new controller.
