What Options Are Available for Remote Monitoring?

Remote monitoring is a significant advantage for power generator operators. It saves time, money, and provides instant notification when problems arise. At Gen-Tech, our EGSA certified technicians can install and program features and functions that give you total control over your power generation systems.

Remote monitoring is capable of monitoring every aspect of a power generation system. Most clients want to monitor engine oil pressure and coolant temperature. Many want it to provide up to the minute data on engine RPM’s and generator voltage/amperage. Many also want it to provide data on system temperature. Programming the system to monitor and track these data points over time is simple and easy to achieve.

It is also possible to establish remote monitoring of sensor inputs, starter contacts, fuel levels, battery condition, remote starts, and more. There are dozens of options that can be programmed to provide real time, daily, weekly, monthly, and annual status updates.

Do You Need Remote Monitoring?

Many of our clients wonder whether it is to their advantage to invest in remote monitoring capabilities—many view remote monitoring as little more than an insurance policy against system damage and fuel theft. While remote monitoring does quickly identify problems before they cause a failure, and it does deter fuel theft, it does much more.

At its core, remote monitoring is an investment in greater efficiency. It helps reduce fuel costs and maintenance expenses. It also helps operators identify methods of streamlining generator operations to make better use of their equipment. For our clients with multiple generators installed at various sites, remote monitoring makes it possible to track each generator’s operations from a single location. This significantly cuts down on the time and expense required to monitor the functions of each unit.

Choosing the Right Features and Functions

From temperature and leak detection, there is an almost unlimited number of functions that remote monitoring systems can be programmed to track. Our EGSA certified technicians can help you identify which features and functions will be most beneficial to your operations. Whether you have a new generator or a legacy system, we can install a monitoring system that will deliver the data you need to keep your generators operational.

The team at Gen-Tech Power Generation Specialists are happy to make recommendations that will:

  • Prevent faults and damage to the power generation system
  • Help reduce fuel consumption and fuel waste
  • Reduce operational costs
  • Optimize generator performance
  • Extend the operational lifespan of the power generation system
