Ayantra – a leading developer of remote asset management products – has created a solution for managing Transportable Generators. Featuring Ayantra’s unique “TruBatt™” architecture, the FleetGen solution reports key information about each generator – including its “true” battery level without input from the battery charger.
Generators must be monitored to ensure optimal performance. Portable generators are particularly difficult to monitor, since they are frequently moved. Key challenges include:
Tracking each generator’s Location
Logging each generator’s Engine Run-Hours to ensure timely maintenance services
Detecting Faults and responding effectively to each Fault event
Maintaining Usage Logs to satisfy regulatory agencies (CARB, AQMD, and other agencies may require detailed reports of each machine’s accumulated Engine Run-Hours and utilization by location)
Monitoring remote generators is a difficult task. Ayantra can help.
FleetGen is a web-based wireless monitoring solution for managing generators. FleetGen can manage any make or model of generator, and it easily supports hybrid fleets. With the average cost of a truck roll @ $75 or more, remote generator monitoring starts to pay for itself right away.
The total solution consists of
- An Ayantra monitoring unit installed on the generator
- Ayantra-provided wireless messaging services
- An Ayantra-provided website to deliver information about each monitored generator
CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING ANY MAKE OR MODEL OF GENERATOR, INCLUDING HYBRID FLEETS.
AUTOMATICALLY REPORTS ESSENTIAL INFORMATION
- ENGINE RUN-HOURS
- STATUS (Running or Not Running)
- CONDITION (Faults or No Faults)
- BATTERY LEVEL
DAILY HEARTBEAT MESSAGES
FleetGen automatically sends a daily update message regardless activity.
ENGINE ON / OFF UPDATES
FleetGen automatically reports each time the generator is turned ON and OFF.
REAL-TIME FAULT MESSAGES AND ALERT NOTIFICATIONS
Each FleetGen monitoring unit includes six user-configurable Inputs to report Faults. Each Fault event can trigger real-time Alert Notifications sent as text messages and/or as email messages directed to specific recipients. Typical examples include: Common Alarm; Low Fuel; Engine Temperature; Oil Pressure; Engine Overcrank; Engine Overspeed
SECURITY FEATURES – “GEOFENCE” and “CURFEW”
FleetGen can report if the generator is moved from its proper location, or if it is utilized during an improper time of day or night.
BATTERY REPORTS / BATTERY ALARMS
Utilizing Ayantra’s unique “Tru-Batt™” technology, FleetGen reports the generator’s true Battery Level (meaning the Battery Level is measured without assistance from the Battery Charger). FleetGen can also send real-time Alert Notifications If any battery or alternator problems occur.
REMOTE ENERGIZE (optional)
Authorized users can use the FleetGen website to remotely Start and/or Stop any monitored generator. Two forms of operation are supported:
– Manual Start / Stop: users can command the generator to Start and Stop upon demand
– Automatic Start / Stop: users can configure the website to automatically Start and Stop the generator according to a pre-defined schedule
FleetGen can send “Service Due” reminders as each machine approaches its service interval. Service intervals are user-configurable, and each reminder can be directed to specific recipients.
Authorized users can collect up-to-the minute updates from any machine, at any time
FleetGen provides utilization reports to comply with California AQMD reporting requirements (similar reporting capabilities are available for other states).
The database information can be exported upon demand.
