GM100 – Economy Generator Monitoring Unit and GM200 – Comprehensive Generator Monitoring Unit
Tank Sensor: A capacitive level sensor is installed in the tank. The sensor provides accurate level measurements of diesel or biodiesel fuels. For particular tank sizes and configurations another type sensor may be recommended.
Generator Sensing for Generator Condition Monitoring
GM100 – A single wire is connected to the generator’s electrical system for sensing if the generator is running.
GM200 – If the generator controller is accessible and the generator is equipped with appropriate transducers a communication cable (RS484 or RS232) is connected between the controller and the MSE RTU for reading electrical and mechanical operating parameters. Transducers can be added and read by the RTU.
Remote Terminal Unit (RTU): The RTU continually acquires sensor data at a high rate (> once/minute). The RTU is either housed inside the generator cabinet or in an externally mounted all weather casing. The RTU is normally powered from the generator’s battery.
Communication: Internet over cellular (gprs/gsm). If necessary, this can be modified for direct internet and in regions beyond cellular coverage the MSE system can be modified to communicate from the site via satellite or radio to an internet access point.
MSE Server Software System: The Server Software System acquires new data continually on-line, minute-by-minute, from every generator in the network.These data enable (a) the accurate calculations of fuel volumes, volume changes and other measured parameters; (b) the detection of various irregular/abnormal events, and (c) the generation and transmission of alarms.
Client Back-Office: The client’s operator and staff can access their proprietary user site from any internet access point. The user can view at all times a 24 hour running window graphical presentation of tank volume and other parameters for each generator. Alarm conditions are tracked. Alarms are dispatched (e.g. sms, e-mail) and posted on the user site in real time. Daily Summary of generator activities for each tank are available and stored for future reference. See the Specification page for more information.
