Configurable Generic Controller – For maximum control

The new CGC controller is built on the same platform as the popular CPC and CEC controllers but offers a more flexible, programmable solution. It comes with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) used to program the controller for different input profiles. It provides customers the ability to modify the configuration of the controller to their individual requirements and set high / low alarms if required.

Configurable Generic Controller

The CGC is designed to regulate the rotational speed of ebm-papst 0-10 Volt and open collector PWM EC and DC fans. The controller accepts an input from an NTC thermistor or a 0-10V input, and gives an output based on a programmable profile. The input/output response profile can be modified using the ebm-papst GUI software.

Graphical User Interface

The GUI software is capable of altering the input source (Temperature or Voltage), the fan speed response to the information received and the levels at which alarms are activated. The details are saved within a configuration file which can be downloaded to the CGC when required. Additionally, ebm-papst provide a variation of pre-made configuration files*, available to download at:


The CGC and GUI software are compatible with all ebm-papst EC and DC fans, with 0-10V or PWM inputs. The controller can be powered directly from a 10V output from an EC fan, or up to 57V from a separate power supply.
