Engine preheater "Binar": reviews. Engine preheater "Binar": instruction, price
In the face of our harsh climate,car owners very often have a problem with the morning start of their "iron horse". It is especially bad when the outside temperature is -20 degrees Celsius and below. Each launch in such conditions shamelessly "eats" the motor resource. But we are now talking about gasoline engines! Can you imagine what is the weather like for owners of diesel cars?
How can you cope with this problem, what do the drivers say? The engine preheater "Binar" can be a good option! What is it? Let's discuss this issue!
What it is?
This is called autonomous heatingequipment used to pre-start the engine. Of course, such a device not only saves a lot of nerves to the owner of the car, which is started in any weather, but also saves the resource of the engine. What are the reviews about this? The engine preheater "Binar", as motorists from all parts of our country believe, is really an excellent way to save time, money and nerves.
So, even old diesel cars at temperatureambient air in -30 degrees Celsius start starting from the very first time (subject to the presence of a normal battery). In general, "Binar" - the manufacturer is really a domestic one, and therefore the device is in fact qualitatively adapted to our realities.
General technical characteristics
The manufacturer himself cites the following characteristics of his products:
Autonomous engine heater, working regardless of the mode of the latter.
The heat release is 5 kW.
The food is from a common gas tank. The fuel consumption is approximately 0.6 liters per hour.
It is connected to the battery, consumes approximately 40-45 W.
The maximum temperature of warming up the motor is +75 degrees Celsius.
There is a regular protection against battery depletion and engine overheating.
The device is started from themounted in the car. Its display shows the voltage in the vehicle's on-board network, as well as the current engine temperature. In addition, it is possible to install three timers at once.
Confirm or refute thesecharacteristics reviews? Pre-engine heater engine "Binar", strange as it may be for domestic products, really corresponds to this data. Moreover, our motorists especially like the fact that the device, if compared with foreign analogs, is incomparably cheaper.
The principle of work of Binara
The device is integrated in the cooling systemcar engine. In this case, the pump provides circulation of the liquid both in the cooling system and in the device itself. The principle of operation is quite simple: the heat exchange fluid is heated and forcibly pumped through the vehicle's cooling system. For heating, a separate burner is used, fuel for which swings from the gas tank with a separate gasoline pump.
Perhaps it is better to put the electricPre-engine heater: 220V will certainly cope with its task no worse !? In principle, this is true, but this technique assumes the availability of a very good and powerful battery, as well as an on-board generator.
Even on relatively new budget machinesnone of the above is often not in principle, what can we say about older models. In addition, older cars and wiring are appropriate, so that the risk of fire significantly increases. You understand that the electric pre-engine heater (220V or so) is permissible only for more or less new cars. We remind you that in severe frost it may well happen that even a powerful battery can not withstand the load.
Real (and sad) stories tell ofThe way car owners not only stayed with a cold engine and saloon, but they could not even start at all. Before the morning visit to work - not the best situation.
Features of new versions
In new models there is even a plug-inGSM-module (modem). You can call the heater, talk to the auto-programmable answering machine to set the time the device turns on and off. In addition, you can request the status of the device by "talking" with him on the phone. And further. If something happened and the heater does not start, it can automatically send an error code to your phone. In principle, a similar option has the preheater heater engine "Teplostar".
Financial matters and other
Judging by the responses of car owners, all functionswork. Control of the heater with their help is greatly simplified: without even seeing your car from the window of the house, you can know exactly about its condition. That's what "Binary 5" is good for. Installation of it, according to car owners, also inspires optimism, including financial indicators. By the way, how much is all this joy? How much will the pre-start engine heater "Binar" cost the family budget? Its price is very, very democratic.
On average, the cost of the kit is about22 thousand rubles. Another ten (on average) have to be given for work. A lot of? For a much more "sour" "Webasto" you have to give about 60 thousand, and even thousands of 20 will be asked for installation.
It is important that even if the non-workingengine you can run "Binar" for heating the cabin. This option was once used by famous ZAZ vehicles. Keep in mind that old drivers categorically do not recommend heating the car, which at that time is in the garage. The fact is that the exhaust pipe of the heater is too close to the cabin, so that you have every chance of breathing in CO (carbon monoxide). On the street, there are no such problems, so after installing the "Binara" you will be much more comfortable to wait for passengers in the winter.
Note that up to a temperature of 75 degrees Celsiusthe engine is warmed up in about 20 minutes (the cycle of operation is 20-120 minutes), but in conditions of especially low temperatures this time may slightly increase. Motorists also testify that it is possible at any time to manually start or stop the stand-alone Binar heater, which is especially valuable in the salon mode.
By the way, the command to turn on the salon fan is only given when the coolant reaches a temperature of 50 degrees Celsius.
Advantages over foreign counterparts
Many users believe that domesticThe heater (oddly enough) is much better than the German "Webasto" / "Hydronica". Manufacturers of these devices like to "trump" a long history of the company, but few people want to pay for the brand with some absurd money. Here that it is possible to find out, having esteemed responses of motorists:
In any frosts, the control panel (since it is not liquid crystal) does not freeze, all information from it is comfortably read (similarly, the preheater heater of the Teplostar engine behaves similarly).
In addition, the device in real timeshows the temperature to which antifreeze has heated up ("Webasto" is deprived of such an opportunity). In the morning it is convenient to look at the readings of the device right from home, figuring out when it is already possible to go out.
As we already said, it can show the codeerrors in case of occurrence of such. Decoding of all possible options is available in the staff manual. Again, the expensive "Webasto" has no such option at all.
The control panel is already attached to the purchased kit. Manufacturers of many foreign heaters are not so generous, and therefore it has to be bought separately.
"Binar" is very reliable, cases of failures are extremelyrarely. "Webasto" is very often buggy, especially in extremely cold temperatures. In a word, our equipment is much better adapted to the harsh climatic conditions: even the preheater KAMAZ engine from this company copes with its work even in the conditions of the North.
There are models only for 5 kW. In principle, what will you do with a 4 kW heater in some particularly cold winter? In the end, before the European winters we are far away.
Finally, "Webasto" costs four times as much, which is especially noticeable in the current conditions.
That's what the reviews say. Pre-engine heater engine "Binar", thus, is a really profitable acquisition.
Can I connect it myself?
First, we immediately note that similar worksin any case, it is better not to engage in self-care by providing them to the service employees. Secondly, in free sale you simply will not find "Binar 5D". The instruction does not presuppose its self-installation, and therefore the device goes directly to the authorized centers.
However, if you still want to feel yourselfforeman of all trades, the way out is. But for this, all equipment will have to be purchased directly from the manufacturer. If the complexity does not frighten you, then you can get down to business, getting a high-quality and inexpensive (only the cost of the device itself) heating. "Binar" does not differ in space complexity, so anyone who has at least minimal experience in locomotive work in the automotive industry will be able to cope with the work.
Basic principles of installation
First of all, let's take a look at the basic principles that should guide the installation:
All components of the system should be arranged as compactly as possible. We must strive that they do not "run up" through the internal space.
The length of the hoses for the coolant is minimal.
After selecting a location, you need to crash into the electrical wiring of the alarm (if it is).
It should be responsible approach to laying the wires: they should not be located with the risk of rubbing.
Control all phases of work two times. As such, the heater is quite dangerous in terms of fires (with improper installation).
Finally, before starting work, it is absolutely necessary to disconnect the battery, in order to avoid any troubles.
What tools will be required?
So, what do we need to mount Binar 5D? The instruction provides as follows:
First, you need keys for 8 (most likely, you need to dismantle the gasoline pump), as well as 10 and 14 (it is advisable to find out in advance what the fuel tank in your car is attached to).
Important! The keys for 10 will require at least a couple of pieces, as well as one for 12 and 13 (required for a fuel pick-up "Binar").
Drill bits of 2mm, 4mm, 7mm (these are needed for the holes for the mounting screws), as well as 8.5mm (it will be required to drill the cap of the gasoline pump) will also be needed.
Of course, the pre-heater installationengine is unthinkable without a hammer and core, pliers (irreplaceable when removing the standard clamps), as well as side cutters. For other works, you need a soldering iron (at least 60W power), because when working you need to solder sufficiently thick wires, as well as solder and rosin in sufficient quantities. Do not forget about screwdrivers of all kinds, a good shoe knife (for cutting the fuel pipe hoses), screeds and tape, as well as several metal strips (width 19-21mm, thickness 3-4mm).
A drill is required, and a welding machine is desirable (but it is possible without it), as well as an ESM. Again, you can do without "Bulgarians", but it's much easier to work with.
So, how to install "Binar 5B Compact" (orsimilar model)? First, unscrew the plastic stop on the rear axle. Clamps on the ventilation and fuel hose neatly clean. Nuts of a gasoline tank we disconnect, then we disconnect a socket of the gasoline pump.
After that, you can disconnect the connectorsfuel lines (red, white and green). Most often, in the performance of this work, a little gasoline is spilled, but there is nothing to worry about. To work it was easier, under the tank in advance it is better to put an emphasis of the required height. After that, we unscrew the nuts holding it, remove the fuel tank. Around the gasoline pump, its surface is carefully and neatly cleaned from all existing contaminants.
After that, disconnect all the connectors, and thenunscrew its cover and completely remove. The remaining hole must be plugged with an oil rag. So, where to "stick" "Binar". Installation continues with the correct preparation of the fuel supply system.
Installing the fuel intake
Drill the cover of the gasoline pump. Most modern machines have this lid - cellular, with ribs of rigidity. So that when drilling it does not crack, start with the smallest drill, gradually expanding the diameter of the hole. Chamfer on the hole must be completely removed, after which carefully clean the gasoline pump from sawdust.
As a rule, the fuel intake even at the "Binar 5BCompact "must be bent, since otherwise it will not be possible to insert it into the resulting hole. Bend it in such a way that the lowest part of the fuel intake is not far from the bottom of the gas tank. Do not forget that the lower part of the gasoline pump should not lose the ability to move up and down.
After that, we lower the latter into the gas tank, andThe fuel intake is carefully passed into the existing slot. For sure it will be uncomfortable, so you can try to bend his nose at an angle of about 45 degrees. The joint is carefully lubricated with a sealant, after which the fixing nuts are tightened. Of course, the excess sealant must be completely removed. In advance, we measure the required cable length for the gasoline pump. Greed and leave unnecessary is not worth it. After that, mount the connector, in no case forgetting about its compaction.
Can cause many questions unlessthe need for somewhere to attach a gasoline pump heater. To solve this problem, it is best to make the simplest bracket (that's what metal strips and USMs will be useful for). It's time to mount the fuel line for the device. To stack it is better in corrugation of a suitable diameter, as in this case security increases, which in this case is important.
In particular, if you plan to mount the KAMAZ engine pre-heater, check all cables and hoses three times so that they do not exactly interrupt when installing the cab in place.
Other stages of work
After that, merge the cooling liquid, andfor that purpose it is highly desirable to use a capacity of sufficient volume, with a wide, comfortable throat. Note that the process itself can not be called fast, since the mixture will flow out slowly, in a thin trickle.
At this time, you should remove the air intake,remove the air filter cover, loosen the connector and remove the clamp, first loosening its clamp. After completing these operations, you can clean the air filter itself. To remove its pallet, it is necessary to do the following: unscrew the bolt, and then gradually pull, simultaneously shaking and making twisting movements. To obtain sufficient space for mounting the boiler directly, it is best to remove the expansion tank. Of course, installing the engine preheater on this is still far from complete.
After that, we try to collect all the componentssystem together. It is very important to immediately check and make sure that nothing is interfering with each other and does not cling to each other. In addition, on the exhaust pipe of the heater do not forget to stretch a sufficient layer of normal thermal insulation material. In general, this part needs to be mounted on separate brackets fixed to the frame.
After that you can start working with wires. We estimate the necessary length, solder and cut. To the salon blank it is necessary to withdraw two sets of them: a wire from the control panel of the device, and also from the "climatic" relay and a wire for remote start of the Binar device. Installation in the engine compartment is almost complete. All the fuse blocks are carefully assembled together and compactly mounted. The fuel line and the main "tourniquet" are secured with ties on the engine.
Finally, you can check how wellWe connected the heater to the cooling system of the car engine. To begin with, we join all the previously prepared connectors. We install the heater fuel line. Be sure (several times) to check the tightening of the clamps. Mount the expansion tank and air filter, then pour the coolant.
We start the car and warm up the engine forabout half an hour. In order to fully drive out the air jams, we bring the revs up to 2.5 thousand revolutions. Once again we check the system for leaks, the engine is muffled. After that, you can start salon work.
We draw your attention to the fact that before thisIt is necessary to completely de-energize the machine by removing the terminals from the battery! After that, remove the panel, remove the fuses. Rubber caps, which do not want to give way, can simply be punctured with a thin awl and poddet. We stretch out the harnesses in the interior, which were taken out behind the engine.
We proceed to install the control panel. It is necessary to deal with climate control. We remove the cover of the fuses, dismantle the side, we find a thick red wire. In order not to get confused later, it is most convenient to use plastic ties. You will be connected to the gap between the same cable and the 7.5A "RR S / WARMER (DRV) ESPS & A / CON" fuse (may vary, depending on the model and manufacturer). Carefully read the instructions for your car!
In general, this installation "Binar" 5B Compact is almost complete, as there are only "cosmetic" work and some manipulations with the setting.
The boiler control unit is set to "HI" andset the maximum speed. We carefully inspect the boiler fuse box. Plus from the boiler we connect to the battery. We throw a minus terminal ... we see how the "Binara" console animates in the cabin. We click on the middle button of the button: right after that, the boiler should start to work and its petrol pump snap into place. Immediately after this, the panel will issue a "13th error", which indicates that no fuel has been supplied to the boiler.
Do not stumble: turn it on again, we get a steady start. After the temperature of the boiler approaches 40 degrees Celsius, the climate control will turn on. After the warm air goes into the interior, the boiler can be switched off. We collect electricians and fuse blocks, we try to start the construction with signaling. If everything went well, you can safely congratulate yourself: the installation of the engine preheater has been completed.
