Standby Generator Control and Monitoring

It is critical that in the event of a power failure, your Standby Generator kicks in. Your emergency power system must work every time. Remote monitoring of a standby generator helps to ensure that the emergency power system is ready for the next power failure. If a problem occurs, you need to be alerted immediately.

With the Angrid Generator Monitoring and Control system you can remotely start or stop your standby generator and monitor its run status, temperature, power output and more.

Remotely start and stop generator, control transfer switch’s, monitor power status, generator power status. In addition the Angrid Standby generator monitor can monitor the generator's engine block, engine coolant, ambient temperatures and fuel tank level.
Our system can be retrofitted to existing standby power systems since it does not rely on any engine controller.

How the Angrid Standby Generator Monitoring system works

A relay in the controller is connected to the generator's start contact for remote generator start and stop functions. A "Run Status" signal from the generator is connected to the input of the controller. The temperature sensors are then connected to the engine coolant and ambient air for remote monitoring.

The Angrid monitoring system offer the options of utility and generator voltage monitoring and transfer switch control. These parameters can then be remotely monitored and controlled using a web browser, email or sms alerts when the generator experiences conditions that are outside of the set parameters. The controller measures actual values including utility and generator output voltage, frequency, current, power and, fuel tank levels. Just about any parameter can be measured provided that a transducer is available to convert the analogue value.

The Angrid System is very flexible with user setup screens for customising the label texts, alarm set points and colours on the monitoring screen. The user can select multiple parameters to be recorded to a log file at time intervals as short as every second. These log files can then be downloaded and viewed to study event history.
