Wireless Monitoring of Generators

AKCPCase Study

powercity-generators

 As part of a project to monitor remote sites run by a hybrid generator and solar panel system, AKCP in conjunction with our dealer in Manila, Imaginet, has provided Powercity Generators with an intelligent monitoring solution. The SP2+E interfaced via Modbus to the control panel of the 15KVA generator. Acting as the Modbus Master, the SP2+E polled data on generator runtime, engine speed, oil pressures and fuel levels. The data was transmitted at some sites via Ethernet, and others over a longer distance via LoRa wireless communications.

AKCPro Server central management software displayed sensor data and sends reports on generator maintenance schedules.
