2.2 Options
The presence of the optional boards indicated on the electrical diagram depends on the options fitted to the generating set.
In order to have additional inputs and outputs, DEC 4000 can be fitted with one to five logic input/output boards.
The input/output board holds additional logical inputs and outputs (all or nothing), which can be used if those of the main module are
not sufficient.
These inputs can be used to detect for additional alarms or faults and outputs for data transfers or to control options.

Composition:
The input/output board comprises 4 inputs and 6 outputs (M1E1 for Module1/Input1 and M1S1 for Module1/Output1).
A green LED is used to indicate the status of each output (output activated).

4.4 Engine fault codes display
Certain alarms and engine faults generate specific fault codes. These codes are standardised according to the J1939 and/or J1587
standards, except for MTU engines that have a specific transmission protocol (see appendix A and B).

Terminology used by the SAE CAN J1939 standard

SPN: Suspect Parameter This represents the system or component at fault, for example: SPN 100, indicates an oil pressure
Number problem or a problem with the oil pressure sensor.

This represents the type of fault that has occurred. This may be an electrical, mechanical or equipment
FMI: Failure Mode identifier
fault.
Terminology used by VOLVO

This term, used in the J1587 standard, has an equivalent in the J1939 standard (SPN).
SID: System Identifier However, this term corresponds, more particularly, to an assembly of components, for example, the
injection system.

This term, used in the J1587 standard, has an equivalent in the J1939 standard (SPN).
PID: Parameter Identifier
However, this term corresponds, more particularly, to a specific component, for example, a sensor.

This term, used in the J1587 standard, has an equivalent in the J1939 standard (SPN).
PPID: Parameter Identifier
PPID corresponds to PID, but is only used by VOLVO.

This represents the type of fault that has occurred. This may be an electrical, mechanical or equipment
FMI: Failure Mode identifier
fault. VOLVO uses a SID-FMI or PID-FMI or PPID-FMI combination.

Terminology used by PERKINS

CID: Component parameter This term used by PERKINS has an equivalent in the J1939 standard (SPN).

This represents the type of fault that has occurred. This may be an electrical, mechanical or equipment
FMI: Failure Mode identifier
fault.

Terminology used by JOHN DEERE

SPN: Suspect Parameter This represents the system or component at fault, for example: SPN 100, indicates an oil pressure
Number problem or a problem with the oil pressure sensor.

This represents the type of fault that has occurred. This may be an electrical, mechanical or equipment
FMI: Failure Mode identifier
fault.

Terminology used by MTU


The ADEC and MDEC general system faults are indicated on the equipment in the following way: fault

6.3 Communication with the ETHERNET Port


The Ethernet Port allows access to the website integrated into the DEC 4000
Communication with the Ethernet Port is used for temporary or permanent connection, in local mode or dial-up modes, between the
DEC 4000 and the following equipment and/or systems:
a PC,
a company network (LAN),
a modem (customer dial-up connection, etc.).
This mode of communication uses several protocols, the main one of which is the TCP/IP protocol.
An IP address is by default configured on the DEC 4000. This address may be changed.

Fig. 6.1 Detail of the J30 Ethernet Port

46 / 156
6.3.1 ETHERNET communication - direct communication
Direct connection is used in local mode for communication between the DEC 4000 and a computer. This allows the DEC 4000 to be
monitored using the website integrated into the latter, namely to:
Display the status and the measurements for the generating set connected
Set the main parameters for the generating set connected.
Remotely control the generating set connected.
In this type of communication there is no network; the notion of the IP address does, however, come in useful. Communication is
established via the computers web browser (Mozilla Firefox 2.0, available from your agent). By entering the IP address for the relevant
DEC 4000, the website integrated into the latter can be directly accessed without a password. Once the connection is established, any
event (alarm, fault, change in status, etc.) registered by the DEC 4000 is recovered by the computer to be displayed on the page(s) of
the connected computer screen.

6.3.2 ETHERNET communication - communication with the company network


The most used connection to a company network is via an Ethernet network. This allows the DEC 4000 to be monitored using the
website integrated into the latter, namely to:
Display the status and the measurements for the generating set connected
Set the main parameters for the generating set connected
Remotely control the generating set connected
Receive a mail in the event of an alarm or fault (if a mail server is present on the network).
In this mode of communication, it is necessary to change the DEC 4000 IP addresses as, generally speaking, it is the existing Ethernet
network administrator who manages the addresses for the systems connected.
The limit on the number of the DEC 4000 connected to a single network depends on the architecture and the number of addresses
available on the existing network.
There is no specific software to be installed, opening the web browser (Mozilla Firefox 2.0) is all that is needed for connection to the
DEC 4000.

6.3.4 ETHERNET communication - communication via GSM modem
This connection allows the DEC 4000 to be supervised via the integrated website, namely to:
Display the status and the measurements for the generating set,
Set the main parameters for the generating set,
Remotely control the generating set.
In this configuration, a modem must be integrated. This modem connected to an Ethernet network allows communication with an
external GSM network. Once a fault or an alarm appears, the DEC 4000 transmits a message including the serial number of the
generating set and the relevant information to a GSM gateway modem which is charged with sending one (or more) text message(s) if
there is a GSM connection.
If the connection between a remote computer and the DEC 4000 connected to the modem is already established then the message will
appear on the active web page. The alert will be sent after connection to the website.

Fig. 6.6 - View of the GSM connection

The limits and constraints are as follows:


GSM modem
Communication speed 9.6 kbit/s.

This tab allows the DEC 4000 alerts to be configured: choice of peripheral, peripheral IP address (corresponding to the IP address for
the DEC 4000 gateway) and the alert function to be activated.

Note: if the DEC 4000 IP address is allocated by the DHCP (DHCP = YES), it is not possible to modify the peripheral IP address in this
tab, as the address was allocated automatically. If the peripheral IP address is not suitable, the following configuration must be carried
out (menu 312 on the DEC 4000): DHCP = NO, Custom IP address and subnetwork mask (the address of the gateway corresponds to
the peripheral IP address defined in this tab).

FMI and Description

FMI=0DATA VALID BUT ABOVE NORMAL OPERATIONAL RANGE - MOST SEVERE LEVEL
The signal communicating information is within a defined acceptable and valid range, but the real world condition is above
what would be considered normal as determined by the predefined most severe level limits for that particular measure of
the real world condition (Region e of the signal range definition) Broadcast of data values is continued as normal.

FMI=1DATA VALID BUT BELOW NORMAL OPERATIONAL RANGE - MOST SEVERE LEVEL
The signal communicating information is within a defined acceptable and valid range, but the real world condition is below
what would be considered normal as determined by the predefined least severe level limits for that particular measure of
the real world condition (Region e of the signal range definition). Broadcast of data values is continued as normal.

FMI=2DATA ERRATIC, INTERMITTENT OR INCORRECT


Erratic or intermittent data includes all measurements that change at a rate that is not considered possible in the real
world condition and must be caused by improper operation of the measuring device or its connection to the module.
Broadcast of data values is substituted with the error indicator value.
Incorrect data includes any data not received and any data that is exclusive of the situations covered by FMIs 3, 4, 5
and 6. Data may also be considered incorrect if it is inconsistent with other information collected or known about the
system.

138 / 156
FMI=3VOLTAGE ABOVE NORMAL, OR SHORTED TO HIGH SOURCE
a. A voltage signal, data or otherwise, is above the predefined limits that bound the range (Region e of the signal range
definition). Broadcast of data values is substituted with the error indicator value.
b. Any signal external to an electronic control module whose voltage remains at a high level when the ECM commands it
to low. Broadcast of data value is substituted with the error indicator value.

FMI=4VOLTAGE BELOW NORMAL, OR SHORTED TO LOW SOURCE


c. A voltage signal, data or otherwise, is below the predefined limits that bound the range (Region e of the signal range
definition). Broadcast of data values is substituted with the error indicator value.
d. Any signal external to an electronic control module whose voltage remains at a low level when the ECM commands it
to high. Broadcast of data value is substituted with the error indicator value.

FMI=5CURRENT BELOW NORMAL OR OPEN CIRCUIT


e. A current signal, data or otherwise, is below the predefined limits that bound the range (Region e of the signal range
definition). Broadcast of data values is substituted with the error indicator value.
f. Any signal external to an electronic control module whose current remains off when the ECM commands it on.
Broadcast of data value is substituted with the error indicator value.

FMI=6CURRENT ABOVE NORMAL OR GROUNDED CIRCUIT


g. A current signal, data or otherwise, is above the predefined limits that bound the range. (Region e of the signal range
definition). Broadcast of data values is substituted with the error indicator value.
h. Any signal external to an electronic control module whose current remains on when the ECM commands it off.
Broadcast of data value is substituted with the error indicator value.

FMI=7MECHANICAL SYSTEM NOT RESPONDING OR OUT OF ADJUSTMENT


Any fault that is detected as the result of an improper mechanical adjustment or an improper response or action of a
mechanical system that, with a reasonable confidence level, is not caused by an electronic or electrical system failure.
This type of fault may or may not be directly associated with the value of general broadcast information.

FMI=8ABNORMAL FREQUENCY OR PULSE WIDTH OR PERIOD


To be considered in cases of FMI 4 and 5. Any frequency or PWM signal that is outside the predefined limits which bound
the signal range for frequency or duty cycle (outside Region b or the signal definition). Also if the signal is an ECM output,
any signal whose frequency or duty cycle is not consistent with the signal which is emitted. Broadcast of data value is
substituted with the error indicator value.

FMI=9ABNORMAL UPDATE RATE


Any failure that is detected when receipt of data via the data link or as input from a smart actuator or smart sensor is not
at the update rate expected or required by the ECM (outside Region c of the signal range definition). Also any error that
causes the ECM not to send information at the rate required by the system. This type of fault may or may not be directly
associated with the value of general broadcast information.

FMI=10ABNORMAL RATE OF CHANGE


Any data, exclusive of the abnormalities covered by FMI 2, that is considered valid but whose data is changing at a rate
that is outside the predefined limits that bound the rate of change for a properly functioning system (outside Region c of
the signal range definition). Broadcast of data values is continued as normal.

FMI=11ROOT CAUSE NOT KNOWN


It has been detected that a failure has occurred in a particular subsystem but the exact nature of the fault is not known.
Broadcast of data value is substituted with the error indicator value.

FMI=12BAD INTELLIGENT DEVICE OR COMPONENT


Internal diagnostic procedures have determined that the failure is one which requires the replacement of the ECU, used
here to mean the packaged unit that includes some microprocessor and its associated components and circuits. It can be
assumed that the communications subsystem is not the part that has failed, and the manufacturer has determined that
there is no serviceable component smaller than the ECU involved in the failure. Broadcast of data value is substituted
with the error indicator value if appropriate, as there may or may not be any broadcast involved. This error is to include
all internal controller trouble codes that can not be caused by connections or systems external to the controller.

FMI=13OUT OF CALIBRATION
A failure that can be identified to be the result of not being properly calibrated. This may be the case for a subsystem
which can identify that the calibration attempting to be used by the controller is out of date. Or it may be the case that the
mechanical subsystem is determined to be out of calibration. This failure mode does not relate to the signal range
definition as do many of the FMIs.

139 / 156
FMI=14SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
Special Instructions is the FMI to be used when the on-board system can isolate the failure to a small number of choices
but not to a single point of failure. When the FMI is used, there is clear necessity for the service technician to take some
action to complete the specific diagnosis, and the manufacturer has provided instructions for the completion of that
diagnosis. There are two cases where this will be used: 1. for emission-related diagnostics where the particular failure
cannot be separated between a sensor out of range and the case where the actual value is at the edge of a diagnostic
region, and 2. for the older SPN 611 to 615 where the problem is in determining which of two or more circuits (which may
interact) is the one that needs repair.
SPNs 611 through 615 are defined as System Diagnostic Codes and are used to identify failures that cannot be tied to a
specific field replaceable component. Specific subsystem fault isolation is the goal of any diagnostic system, but for
various reasons this cannot always be accomplished. These SPNs allow the manufacturer some flexibility to
communicate non-specific component diagnostic information. Since SPNs 611-615 use the standard SPN/FMI format it
allows the use of standard diagnostic tools, electronic dashboards, satellite systems and other advanced devices that
scan Parameter Groups containing the SPN/FMI formats. Because manufacturer defined codes are not desirable in terms
of standardization, the use of these codes should only occur when diagnostic information cannot be communicated as a
specific component and failure mode.
Possible reasons for using a System Diagnostic Code include:
1. Cost of specific component fault isolation is not justified, or
2. New concepts in Total Vehicle Diagnostics are being developed, or
3. New diagnostic strategies that are not component specific are being developed.
Due to the fact that SPNs 611-615 are manufacturer defined and are not component specific, FMIs 0-13 and 15-31 have
little meaning. Therefore, FMI 14, Special Instructions, is usually used. The goal is to refer the service personnel to the
manufacturer's troubleshooting manual for more information on the particular diagnostic code. This failure mode does not
relate to the signal range definition as do many of the FMIs. This type of fault may or may not be directly associated with
the value of general broadcast information.

FMI=15DATA VALID BUT ABOVE NORMAL OPERATING RANGE - LEAST SEVERE LEVEL
The signal communicating information is within a defined acceptable and valid range, but the real world condition is above
what would be considered normal as determined by the predefined least severe level limits for that particular measure of
the real world condition (Region i of the signal range definition). Broadcast of data values is continued as normal.

FMI=16DATA VALID BUT ABOVE NORMAL OPERATING RANGE - MODERATELY SEVERE LEVEL
The signal communicating information is within a defined acceptable and valid range, but the real world condition is above
what would be considered normal as determined by the predefined moderately severe level limits for that particular
measure of the real world condition (Region k of the signal range definition). Broadcast of data values is continued as
normal.

FMI=17DATA VALID BUT BELOW NORMAL OPERATING RANGE - LEAST SEVERE LEVEL
The signal communicating information is within a defined acceptable and valid range, but the real world condition is below
what would be considered normal as determined by the predefined least severe level limits for that particular measure of
the real world condition (Region h of the signal range definition). Broadcast of data values is continued as normal.

FMI=18DATA VALID BUT BELOW NORMAL OPERATING RANGE - MODERATELY SEVERE LEVEL
The signal communicating information is within a defined acceptable and valid range, but the real world condition is below
what would be considered normal as determined by the predefined moderately severe level limits for that particular
measure of the real world condition (Region j of the signal range definition). Broadcast of data values is continued as
normal.

FMI=19RECEIVED NETWORK DATA IN ERROR


Any failure that is detected when the data received via the network is found substituted with the error indicator value
(i.e. FE16, see J1939-71). This type of failure is associated with received network data. The component used to measure
the real world signal is wired directly to the module sourcing the data to the network and not to the module receiving the
data via the network. The FMI is applicable to Region f and g of the signal range definition. This type of fault may or may
not be directly associated with the value of general broadcast information.

FMI=20-30RESERVED FOR SAE ASSIGNMENT

FMI=31CONDITION EXISTS
Used to indicate that the condition that is identified by the SPN exists when no more applicable FMI exists or in cases
when the reported SPN name spells out the component and a non-standard failure mode. This type of fault may or may
be directly associated with the value of general broadcast information. This FMI will mean not available when the
associated SPN is also not available as when the remainder of the packet is filled with binary ones after all data has
been transmitted.
