The IKD 1 is an I/O extension board. It allows an additional 8 discrete inputs and 8 relay outputs to be connected via CAN bus to the Woodward generating set controllers series GCP-30 and easYgen.

It is possible to connect multiple Woodward IKD 1 cards to each of the genset controllers. The IKD 1 can be programmed via a PC configuration tool or directly via LogicsManagerTM in the easYgen series controllers. Configuration of text name for the I/O, alarm classes, NO (Normally Open) and NC(Normally Closed) relay contact configuration and delay timers is possible. The I/O states will be displayed in clear text messages on the genset controllers display and can be used for further processing.
