ENGINE CONTROLLER

ADEM III
ENGINE CONTROLLER

The ADEM III controller is the main


Electronic Control Module (ECM) used
on select diesel engines.
The ADEM III control is designed to control/
interface Electronic Unit Injector (EUI) equipped
engines. The ADEM III controller is composed
of the ADEM III ECM, control software, sensors,
actuators, fuel injectors, and interface to the
generator system.
The prime benefit of an ADEM III engine system
is to better control and maintain the particulate
emissions, both steady state and transient,
while improving engine performance over
the Mechanical Unit Injector (MUI) engines.
