Product of the Month: EEG7000
Enhanced Electronic Governor
The EEG7000 Enhanced Electronic Governor is designed for use with industrial engine applications for generator sets, mechanical drives, compressor pumps and off-road mobile equipment.
- Mini – ECUTSC1 Control Capable with Diagnostic Messages (DM)
- Isochronous, Variable or Customizable Droop Governor
- 3 Fixed Speeds or Variable Speed with Direct 0-5V, 5kὩ, or 4-20mA Input
- Built-in USB Port for Easy Configuration with Free Software
- Engine Hour Meter and Service Timer
- Built-in Speed Switch Output for Crank or Overspeed
- Black Smoke Reduction, Speed Ramp Control, Load Sharing / Synchronizing Option and Cummins EFC Capable
- Fully Sealed, IP67
The 7000 precisely controls engine speed and quickly responds to transient diesel and gaseous fueled engine loads. When paired with a GAC actuator, the 7000 is a significant upgrade for any mechanical governor system that needs flexibility, precision and accurate speed control. In addition, the EEG7000 is quickly programmed through a USB port using the GAConfig Tool, consolidating popular features of past programming tools into a user-friendly, compact package. The 7000 can also be controlled directly over J1939 with other aftermarket displays.

GAC’s Sean Collins Participates in a Fireside Chat with General David H. Petraeus at EGS
“Success in life is dealing with hurdles, setbacks and mistakes,” says General David Petraeus to his moderator Sean Collins, President of GAC, at the Electrical Generating Systems Association (EGSA) fall conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last month.
Retired General David H. Petraeus, former Director of the CIA and current partner at KKR, a leading global investment firm, discussed the world’s energy grid and future power needs for both military and domestic use.
“Given many years in the war zones, I have a deep appreciation for those who generate power and keep generators going. Thanks for the opportunity to spend time with you and thanks, Sean Collins, for guiding our conversation so smoothly,” said Petraeus.
Petraeus shared his thoughts on the general state of the world’s power systems, discussing the strategic challenges that America is currently facing. “Success in life is dealing with hurdles, setbacks and mistakes,” said Petraeus. These hurdles, he explained, include future needs for remote power at military bases and setups as well as the necessity for having a diverse power strategy available for domestic use.
Petraeus discussed past and present power and infrastructure requirements in Iraqi neighborhoods, U.S. domestic power grid needs and the use of renewable energy for remote military, and answered many questions on the power diversity needs here at home in the United States.
The positive feedback from the attendees was consistent throughout the conference. Collins stated, “It was great to see General Petraeus again. His ability to address the complex questions on energy, power generation and other diverse subjects was just amazing.”
General Petraeus, a prominent U.S. military figure of the post-9/11 era, is described as a leading warrior intellectual. “One of the great battle captains in American history,” says Admiral Mike Mullen.
Using an External Potentiometer
A single remote speed adjustment potentiometer can be added to the ESD5xxx to adjust the engine speed continuously over a specific speed range.
- Select a potentiometer with the desired speed frequency range and corresponding potentiometer value. Select the next higher range if the exact range cannot be found.
- On the GAC ESD5xxx series speed controllers, connect the speed range potentiometer to the ESD to terminals G and J. Add a small amount of droop to maintain engine stability at the minimum speed setting.
- At the maximum speed setting, governor performance will be near isochronous, regardless of the droop adjustment setting.
- Place a fixed resistor across the potentiometer to obtain the exact desired range.
