PowerCore® TEC-10 Controller

Murphy’s PowerCore® TEC-10 panel provides full control of your engine including auto start/stop, auto throttling and display of both engine parameters and critical faults from the engine/application. The TEC-10 supports SAE J1939 CAN protocols for electronically governed engines as well as analog sensors on mechanical engines for fault and safety warnings/shutdowns.

The TEC-10 follows a standard operating sequence of 22 machine states that happen in a predetermined order. The machine states may be set to zero, if not needed, or adjusted to fit the application. The incredibly versatile menu structure allows parameters and settings to be changed from the face without the need of a PC tool, if desired. This flexibility allows for the same control panel to be used across a wide range of applications while providing operator consistency and familiarity.

Designed as a plug-and-play solution, the TEC-10 may utilize a free PC configuration tool that allows customers to change default settings as well as providing three levels of passcode protection. The rugged TEC-10 panel may be mounted directly to the engine or engine/application cover. Built to endure industrial environments from full sun to wide temperature ranges, the panel features a high degree of sealing for dust and water as well as the ability to withstand high vibration.

The control panel features molded, industry-standard connectors mating with Deutsch HDP series connectors and is compatible for use on the simplest mechanical engine to the most advanced, fully electronic Tier 4 engines. Murphy's Industrial Harness or John Deere's OEM engine harnessing is required.
