The automatic electric overspeed protection shutdown system is designed to continuously monitor diesel engine RPM to immediately shutdown the engine in the event of an overspeed condition.
The RevGuard Speed Switch monitors engine RPM using either a flywheel mounted magnetic pickup or a signal from the engine alternator. It will immediately transmit a signal to trigger the shutdown of the Air Intake Shutoff Valve when the engine RPM exceeds a preset limit.
The system also includes a Manual Override Toggle Switch that can be used to trigger a manual emergency closure of the Air Intake Shutoff Valve.
