Standby Generator Monitoring

Standby Generator Monitoring
Standby generators are intended and built for infrequent use, in particular in unexpected emergency situations. Are you responsible for a network of such generators? Does your commercial company have standbys at its various outlets and offices? Are you a service company responsible for the maintenance of your clients’ standbys? Can you rest assured that these standbys will function when needed? MSE offers you a system and way to better ensure that such malfunctions in emergencies will not occur. MSE’s Standby Monitoring System SBM1 will enable you to more efficiently manage your standby network or clients. SBM1 provides you with an information tool to better maintain these standbys and reduce malfunctions at lower costs to you.

The SBM1 comprises an economically priced Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) that connects to the standby and continually communicates with an MSE Central Server System providing vital information on the condition of the standby. This information is processed and the Server continually updates your company’s proprietary MSE user site.  

Sensing for Standby Condition Monitoring

Remote Terminal Unit (RTU): A cable connects several critical electrical measurements to the RTU. The RTU continually acquires sensor data. 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. Fuel monitoring is available as an option.

Communication:  Internet over cellular (gprs/gsm).

MSE Server Software System: The Server Software System acquires new data continually on-line, minute-by-minute, from every standby in the network for the analysis of the measured parameters and detection of various irregular/abnormal events. 

Client Back-Office: The maintenance operator and staff can access their proprietary user site from any internet access point to view the on-line continually updated state of the standby. Alarm conditions are tracked. Alarms are dispatched (e.g. sms, e-mail) and posted on the user site in real time. Optionally, the back office user interface can be customized to client requirements.

 Benefits Derived from SBM1 by Commercial Companies with Standbys at their Outlets and Offices
  • SBM1 standby condition monitoring enables less costly preventive maintenance rather than costly emergency service when the standby is needed.
  • Improved service from your service company authorized to monitor, in parallel to you, the standbys for which it is responsible.
  • SBM1 enhances the probability that your standby will function when needed.
