    InteliLite MRS 16

The InteliLite MRS 16 provides reliable prime power and enables the user to decrease maintenance costs by remotely monitoring and controlling the gen-set from anywhere, anytime using ComAp’s online monitoring tool, WebSupervisor. 

The InteliLite MRS 16 offers: 

  • Flexible and efficient setup and monitoring using InteliConfig, ComAp’s PC Configuration and monitoring tool
  • Built-in PLC logic and PLC editor with easy-to-use drag and drop editing blocks
  • Remote control and monitoring of your gen-set operations from anywhere, anytime with WebSupervisor, our cloud-based fleet management tool
  • AirGateComAp’s controllers incorporate AirGate connection technology to make access to the internet as simple as possible.
    AirGate enables our controllers to connect to the internet using the existing network infrastructure, negotiating firewalls and VPN systems and removing the requirement for static and public IP addresses.
    for easy connection to your equipment remotely, without worrying about your asset’s IP address
  • Event-based history for fast and easy troubleshooting
  • Slots for plug-in modules for 4G, Ethernet, RS232/485 connections and additional binary inputs and outputs
  • CAN module extensions
  • More precise measuring with a True Root Mean Square measurement feature
  • Zero power mode to avoid battery drainage for prime power applications
  • Multi-purpose maintenance timers and exercise timers with a back-up RTC battery
  • Compatibility with remote displays
  • Multilingual support
  • Dual prime power application support
  • Modbus register mapping
  • Optional geofencingA geographical area can be defined in the controller and, with the aid of our GPS module, a selectable protection can be activated when the gen-set leaves the defined area.
    Prevent your gen-set to be used in a location different to the one agreed upon. Taking your equipment to a different location without your consent is not only breach of contract but also it might deteriorate your gen-set.

    feature helping with efficient unit tracking and theft prevention

InteliLite MRS 16 also comes in a version for extremely low temperatures. Please use the order code IL3MRS16BLA.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I change the controller firmware? Where can I get the latest firmware?

You can download the latest firmware package on the webpage of the device. You can easily navigate there through the ‘Products’ section or just use the Search function. If you cannot find the firmware on the website or if you require different than the offered version do not hesitate to contact our support team.

The firmware upgrade itself is easy to perform. You need the appropriate configuration software and a connection to the controller (preferably a direct connection). Prior to initiating the update process, we strongly recommend you to save a complete backup of your device.

It usually consists of several steps:
  • Create a controller back up.
  • Update the device firmware. It will contain default Configuration Archive and default Application.
  • Change the Application (SPtM, MiNT, MCB, MGCB, BTB, etc) to the required type (by programming appropriate default archive to the controller).
  • Use the Import Configuration Wizard to restore your previous configuration. In some cases manual interventions might be needed during this step.
  • Optional: Update the connected display firmware or device communication module firmware.
Should you be unsuccessful in programming the new version, the rollback procedure is to install previous firmware version and use your back up to restore the controller to its original state before the firmware upgrade was attempted.

How do I connect to my ComAp controller? What types of connections are supported?

ComAp offers a wide range of options to connect to your controller:

  • RS232 / RS485
  • USB - USB A<->B (usually a printer cable)
  • Internet connection - LAN, GPRS, 3G, 4G

Note that some connection types require you to use a communication module (plug-in eg a RS232 card) or communication bridge (external device eg Internet Bridge NT).

Each ComAp device usually allows for multiple ways of connection. The simplest one supported by the majority of our devices is the RS232 (serial) connection. For this, you need an RS232 cable (null modem) and if your PC is not equipped with an RS232 port you need a USB<->RS232 converter.
USB connections are very common. Almost all ComAp devices support connection using simple USB A<->B cable (printer cable) for easy configuration. Some devices can be powered from the USB port for programming to allow easy configuration right on your desk.
Other connection types: Internet connection (LAN, GPRS, 3G, 4G), Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, SNMP, AirGate, Modem.
Note that some connection types require you to use a communication module (plug-in eg a RS232 card) or communication bridge (external device eg Internet Bridge NT). Not all types of connection are possible on each device. You can find all the details related to this topic in your device's Comprehensive guide or Communication guide.
 
Detailed information about connection to:
InteliLite NT, InteliATS NT, InteliCompact NT is available IL-NT, IA-NT, IC-NT Communication Guide (page 21)
InteliGen-NT, InteliSys-NT, InteliMains-NT is available in IGS-NT Communication Guide (page 19)
InteliLite is available in Global Guide InteliLite AMF25 Global Guide (page 126)

 

I cannot connect to my controller using the Internet or AirGate connection, why?

Usually connecting to the controller over the internet is straightforward and works out of the box. However, there are a few parameters that need to be set correctly.
 
  • Make sure you have the latest firmware in the controller itself but also in all the communication modules (plug-in, built-in or external).
 
  • Ensure the communication interface is configured correctly.
    • CM-4G-GPS, CM-Ethernet, CM-GPRS - Can be set in the controllers setpoints on the unit itself or using InteliConfig configuration software.
    • IB-COM, IB-Lite - Use web interface -  just connect to http://<controller-ip-address>/sp_index.htm using your favourite web browser.
    • InternetBridge-NT 4G, InternetBridge-NT - Requires a software tool called IBNTConfig(https://www.comap-control.com/products/detail/ib-nt-config) and an USB A<->B cable for configuration. This way you can also enable MODBUS, SNMP etc. 
 
  • Make sure there is no firewall blocking your connection. Consult your IT specialist or ISP if not sure. If you use a firewall, make sure the following ports are open for communication:
    • The device must be able to send data to the AirGate server at UDP port 6127 and TCP port 23. The TCP port can be changed in the module setup to 21 if needed.
    • TCP port 44445 is required for WebSupervisor connection.
    • Port 80 is used for accessing the communication module web interface.
    • Port 502 is used for Modbus TCP communication (enabled by default).
    • Port 161 is used for SNMP (needs to be enabled).

What do SPtM, MINT, MGCB stand for?

SPtM = Single Parallel to Mains
MINT = Multiple gen-sets with INTernal sync and load sharing
MGCB = Master Generator Circuit Breaker

ComAp’s world is full of abbreviations but once you get a basic understanding of their meanings, you will find them useful when reading the documentation or communicating with us.

What is AirGate?

AirGate  allows our controllers to connect to the internet using existing network infrastructure, negotiating firewalls and VPN systems and removing the requirement for static and public IP addresses.

ComAp controls incorporate the AirGate connection technology to make access to the internet as simple as possible. AirGate was designed to overcome the issues commonly faced when trying to connect remote equipment using internet based communications.

AirGate allows our controllers to connect to the internet using the existing network infrastructure, negotiating firewalls and VPN systems and removing the requirement for static and public IP addresses.

Once AirGate in the controller is activated even if the IP address is changed, our configuration and monitoring tools will keep track of the remote equipment.
