I would like to replace the current controls some equipment with the Woodward Easygen 3500 control. I have many questions but I will limit them to a few.
Can the Easygen get the engine data from the ADEM II via the engine level CAN input to the control?
Does anyone have experience interfacing this control with a 3456 w/ ADEM II? Is anyone aware of any known stumbling blocks?
If you were doing this retrofit would you let the protection in the CDVR be the primary or set the Woodward as primary?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

The easYgen product has been used on countless CAT engines including ones controlled by the CAT ADEM II controller. Engine information is limited on the CANbus of the ADEM II and protection setup differs from application to application. Please feel free to contact Woodward support at SupportPGD_NAandCA@woodward.com for assistance

There are many after-market controls vendors, including Woodward and our company, DEIF, that can be retrofitted and can communicate with the ADEM II. We are doing a lot right now with CAT and large multiple-genset parallel power islands.
