- Model Cascade CD101 - Auto-Start Controller



The Cascade CD101 Auto-Start Controller  offers automatic start and stop control with easy configuration for a broad number of applications. This auto-start controller is designed to fit any enginedriven application requiring a simple and robust automatic start and stop sequence. Pumps, Compressors, Grinders, Power Units and Generators are just few of the industrial applications for the controller. The Cascade controller is fully compatible with all major engine types. Whether you are running mechanical or J1939 engines, the controller will work with your application.

Here are some of the unique features of the Cascade that only Murphy can offer at our competitive price.

  • Durability: Encapsulated to protect it against dirt, water and dust, along with a compression gasket to fully seal it to the panel. Cascade is rated NEMA4 and IP65.
  • Low Battery Blackouts: Operates in total blackout for a minimum of two seconds.
  • Compatibility: Accepts MPU, AC Frequency and ECU speed signals and can operate with standard and J1939 engines.
  • Inputs and Outputs: The Cascade Inputs and Outputs are ruggedly protected and fault tolerant.
  • J1939 Ready: Works directly with Murphy’s J1939-ready PowerView® gages, just plug and go. No sender is required. 
  • CD101 Cascade Configuration Tool: Allows quick setup and loading of parameters into a Murphy standard Cascade via a PC software tool.
