OMNICOMM SOLUTION FOR REMOTE MONITORING AND CONTROL OF DIESEL GENERATORS

Keeping the lights on

As higher demand for power puts pressure on outdated grids, particularly in emerging economies, backup generators are critical in supporting industry and infrastructure. 

Diesel generator sets (gensets) supply regular and emergency electrical power across many industries and situations, from factories to field hospitals. Interruptions to power can mean the difference between profit and loss, or even life and death.

Accurate genset monitoring is crucial in many scenarios, including:

Remote mobile base stations often do not have a mains electricity connection and rely entirely on gensets to function. Gensets are also used as an emergency solution for power outages.
Data centers cannot afford to stop, as outages would cause chaos across online systems worldwide
Banks cannot afford to close their doors when there is no electricity, as many customers access banking services in bank branches.
Gensets are sometimes used as single source of power supply, especially when construction is taking place in a far-flung location
Power outages stop assembly lines in their tracks, which leads directly to loss of revenue.
Emergency gensets power medical equipment during power outages and are also used to power field hospitals.

Increasingly, genset operators are using sophisticated remote solutions to monitor fuel usage, control generators in inaccessible locations and optimize performance.

That’s where Omnicomm comes in.

Our solution

We offer turnkey, best-in-class solutions for remote genset monitoring and management.

Omnicomm products are distributed to 108 countries on five continents, working with over 3,000 trusted partners to deliver first-class service. Our solutions ensure gensets are always ready to perform, avoiding loss of business or even loss of life due to power outages.

This includes:

  • High-precision fuel-level sensors (99.2% accuracy): the sensor is installed in the genset tank(s)
  • OMNICOMM Optim on-board terminal is connected to the genset administration panel
  • Cloud-based fleet management software, Omnicomm Online includes dedicated reporting for genset monitoring

The powerful benefits of Omnicomm’s genset monitoring solution

  • You can turn generators on/off remotely. You do not have to be at the gensets’ physical location. 
  • You can monitor fuel volumes at all times to see when refilling is necessary and detect fuel wastage or theft.
  • You can ensure uninterrupted operations (no dry panes) by receiving notifications when the fuel level dips below a specified threshold, and optimise fuel delivery planning.
  • You can access real-time data about genset performance according to a wide range of pre-defined parameters, making it easier to schedule maintenance or replacements.
  • You can find out immediately when monitored parameters change, enabling predictive maintenance. This means operators can fix minor issues before an emergency happens.
  • You can monitor and analyse the general load and pinpoint low-performing generators that are increasing the load on others.
  • You can streamline maintenance planning with notifications. You will be notified of engine hours and receive alerts for when next maintenance is due.
  • Genset manufacturers can install Omnicomm equipment in generators directly from the assembly line for added value and convenience.
  • Almost any parameter can be monitored, depending on your specific requirements. Here are some of the parameters monitored using Omnicomm equipment in real cases: fuel levels, coolant temperature, charging voltage, charging current of batteries, output frequency, phase-to-ground voltage, line voltage, generator current and many more.
