Essential parts no longer in production for Meggitt/Whittaker analogue motor controller
For many years Meggitt/Whittaker has provided an analogue motor controller with part numbers C173455 and C173465 to drive her metering valves. Unfortunately essential replacement parts for this motor controller are no longer in production. Repair of your existing motor controllers will not be possible anymore by lack of these essential parts.
Meggitt part numbers affected: C173455 & C173465
Replace obsolete analogue controllers by new generation digital controllers
Meggitt has released a new generation digital motor controller to replace the existing analogue controller. This digital controller comes in three different configurations, depending on your specific engine situation and ATEX zone requirements.
|Meggitt motor controller configuration||Meggitt obsolete product number||Meggitt replacement product number|
|1 x controller, no enclosure||C173455||C450305|
|1 x controller in ATEX zone 1 explosion proof enclosure||C173465||C450285|
|3 x controller in ATEX zone 2 explosion proof enclosure||Not available||C450295|
Important retrofit remark
A retrofit from the current obsolete analogue controllers to the new digital Meggitt controllers requires an exchange of all motor controllers in the same fuel system at the same time. It also requires adjustment of specific parameters in the control system for proper functioning of the new digital controllers.
