Us­ing smart tech­nol­ogy to mon­i­tor gen­er­a­tor per­for­mance

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - ICT -

The ad­vanced Comap re­mote gen­er­a­tor mon­i­tor­ing tech­nol­ogy en­sures that your gen­er­a­tor is never down or dis­abled by us­ing smart tech­nol­ogy to mon­i­tor the per­for­mance and to send alerts when fuel or main­te­nance is re­quired.

“This tech­nol­ogy is al­ready in­stalled in some of Sri Lanka’s key cor­po­rate of­fices such as in the bank­ing and tele­com sec­tors,” said Met­ro­pol­i­tan En­gi­neer­ing (Pvt.) Ltd CEO Charith Mol­ligoda, sole dis­trib­u­tors and agents for Comap con­trol so­lu­tions from the Czech Repub­lic.

A lap­top, tab, smart phone or any other in­ter­net en­abled de­vice can be used to keep track of the gen­er­a­tor or gen­er­a­tors set up in mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions us­ing the re­mote mon­i­tor­ing tech­nol­ogy in-built in the gen­er­a­tor con­trollers. While gen­er­a­tor con­trollers of­fered by Met­ro­pol­i­tan come retro­fit­ted with Comap’s gen­er­a­tor con­troller to en­able re­mote mon­i­tor­ing, any type of used or other branded gen­er­a­tors can be in­stalled with the Comap re­mote mon­i­tor­ing con­troller and soft­ware as nec­es­sary.

Fur­ther, com­pa­nies and homes that have con­cerns of fuel theft, fuel leak­ages, unau­tho­rized genset ac­cess and us­age, ab­nor­mal bat­tery con­sump­tion, dan­ger­ous en­gine op­er­a­tions can now ad­dress and rec­tify these con­cerns via the mo­bile, tab or desk­top from any­where in the world.

“In the event of a power fail­ure, if you cant start the gen­er­a­tor you have to call the ser­vice per­son­nel who must travel to the genset lo­ca­tion and rec­tify the prob­lem, which re­quires valu­able time, money and may pos­si­bly re­sult in loss of busi­ness cred­i­bil­ity to your or­ga­ni­za­tion. But, if your genset is re­motely mon­i­tored the ser­vice per­son­nel can view the gen­er­a­tor pa­ram­e­ters on­line and at­tempt to rec­tify re­motely which is pos­si­ble in most cases, which will save time and money,” Mol­ligoda said.

Usu­ally a tech­ni­cian’s visit will have a charge in ad­di­tion to the re­pair cost, this way cus­tomers can be guar­an­teed of sav­ing money of tech­ni­cian vis­its. Fur­ther, Met­ro­pol­i­tan of­fers a 24x7 mon­i­tor­ing fa­cil­ity for gen­er­a­tors in­stalled by the com­pany to en­sure cus­tomers are taken care of at all times.

Met­ro­pol­i­tan En­gi­neer­ing, a mem­ber of Met­ro­pol­i­tan Hold­ings (Pvt.) Ltd has been in­stalling these units is­land­wide and of­fer­ing this ser­vice to elite cor­po­rate and in­di­vid­ual cus­tomers for the last two years and would now be ex­tend­ing the ser­vices to oth­ers who re­quire this ser­vice.
