Deutz DieselPower, DDP, the sole distributor for Sales, Support and Service for all Deutz engines in South Africa and certain Anglophone African Countries has introduced the DDFS (Deutz Dieselpower Failsafe System) which protects engines in the toughest working conditions, such as e.g. work boats and other applications, where even minor faults, if overlooked, can easily become serious breakdowns. The DDFSystem has been developed fully by technicians of DDP.

Incorporating the latest technology in engine monitoring and controlling, the DDFS system protects engines from severe damage and therefore increases engine life. The DDFS system is designed to monitor all engine functions and react according to pre-set parameters.  If for example the shutdown mode is activated, the engine cannot be restarted until the problem is rectified. Removal or disconnection of the DDFS controller will also prevent the engine from starting, rendering the system failsafe. It can be installed on all electronically controlled engines fitted with the EMR II engine management controller. These include the 914, 2011, 1012/2012, 1013/2013 and 1015/2015 series engines. The DDFS system is an add-on to complement the current operation of the EMR II via CAN Bus. It “piggy-backs” on the EMR II and collects information such as rpm, coolant/cylinder head temperature, oil pressure, oil temperature and operating hours. The system is easy to install and requires very little maintenance.

Information is displayed on a 3.5” high-resolution colour TFT display, which is configured to suit individual needs. When the shutdown mode is activated, the fault message appears immediately on the display and alerts the operator to the fault, at the same time giving the operator/technician the exact cause for the engine shutdown. This both minimises down time and simplifies problem solving. The electronic speed increase system used as standard with the EMR II system is configured and calibrated through the DDFS controller, up to an operating voltage of 24V.
