Auto Throttle 1
Cat. No. 091-84
Weight 1 lbs

This device is a voltage detector with time delays. An output relay is operated 15 seconds after a low voltage is detected and the relay remains closed for a minimum of 5 minutes. The Auto Throttle may be used with any actuator or electronically controlled engine.
  • High Idle Control
  • Increases Alternator Output
  • Simple, Easily Installed
  • Time Delays Eliminate Cycling
  • Usable with any Throttle Actuator    
The Auto Throttle 1 is a voltage detector designed to operate any throttle system to increase engine speed when insufficient alternator output drops the battery voltage. Time delays are provided to inhibit the unit from operating when the voltage drops for only a short period of time. Then, once a high idle is produced, it is maintained for 5 minutes. This reduces the ON/OFF cycling. The output of the Auto Throttle 1 is the closure of a relay with 20 ampere contacts. This contact closure may be utilized to operate any actuator or switch the input to an electronic engine control. Operation occurs when the unit senses less than 12.5 volts for a minimum of 15 seconds. The relay then operates to produce the high idle and remains energized for at least 5 minutes or until the voltage rises above 13.4 volts, whichever occurs later. The Auto Throttle 1 senses battery voltage and provides the necessary control signals to speed up the engine. It does not provide the mechanism to increase the speed, this is supplied by the installer.
