Section 2.2
Pld-Mr – Engine-Resident Control Unit

The PLD-MR monitors and determines all values which are required for the operation of the engine.‪

The PLD-MR control unit (see Figure "DDEC-ECU" ) is located on the left-hand side of the engine.‪

Figure 1. PLD-MR Control Unit on Engine

The PLD-MR processes the data received from the DDEC-VCU for engine control management.‪

The data is then compared to the parameters stored in the PLD-MR.‪

From these data, quantity and timing of injection are calculated and the unit pumps are actuated accordingly through the solenoid valves.‪

The part numbers for the PLD-MR versions in production in NAFTA are listed in Table "PLD-MR Part Numbers and Software Versions" .‪

Section 2.2.1
Environmental Conditions

Temperature, atmospheric conditions, and vibration must be considered. The PLD-MR is resistant to all fluids and toxic gases occurring in the engine compartment.‪

Section 2.2.1.1
Temperature

The ambient operating temperature range is -40 to 125°C (-40 to 257°F).‪

Section 2.2.1.2
Vibration

The vibration load for the PLD-MR is maximum 3 g at 10 Hz – 1000 Hz with damping elements.‪

Section 2.2.1.3
Water Intrusion

The PLD-MR can be exposed to steam cleaning and pressure washing. Care should be taken not to pressure spray the connectors.‪

Section 2.2.2
Engine Sensor Harness

The Engine Sensor Harness (ESH) is factory installed and delivered connected to the engine sensors and the PLD-MR. See Figure "Typical On-Highway MBE 900 Engine Harness — Non-EGR Engine" and Figure "Typical On-Highway MBE 900 Six-cylinder Engine Harness — EGR Engine" for the MBE 900 ESH for non-EGR and EGR engines. See Figure "Typical MBE 4000 Engine Harness — Non-EGR Engine" for the MBE 4000 ESH (non-EGR).‪

Section 2.2.4
Fuses

A Battery (+) fuse and an ignition circuit fuse must be provided by the vehicle wiring harness. Blade-type automotive fuses are normally utilized; however, manual or automatic reset circuit breakers which meet the following requirements are also acceptable. The fuse voltage rating must be compatible with the PLD-MR's maximum voltage of 32 volts. ‪

The ignition fuse current rating must be sized for the loads utilized in each application; however, a rating of between 5 and 10 amps is usually sufficient.‪

The Battery (+) fuse current rating must satisfy two criteria:‪

  • Must not open during normal operation
  • Must open before the PLD-MR is damaged during a reverse battery condition

Bussmann ATC-40 and Delphi Packard Electric Systems MaxiFuse 40 amp rated fuses or equivalent will satisfy these requirements. Acceptable blow times versus current and temperature derating characteristics are listed in listed in Table "Fuse Current and Blow Time" and listed in Table "Fuse Temperature and Current" .‪

Proportional Valve Control

The proportional valve control on the PLD-MR controls external setting and switching elements. The output function of the proportional valves is determined by the configuration. The outputs of the control unit can be configured as pulse width modulated (PWM) or digital outputs. The proportional valve control outputs can be enabled or disabled by minidiag2.‪

The output function of the proportional valves is listed in Table "Proportional Valves" .‪
