BTS DIESEL GENERATORS

Bernini Design provides generator remote monitoring equipment to manage Power Generators placed in Base Transceiver Stations (BTS). A BTS is sort of shelter that includes fundamental equipment for wireless communications. It is about devices like mobile phones, tablets, radio equipment, computers and wireless systems connected to Internet. The diesel generator plays an important role in case of prolonged power outage. Generator remote monitoring allows an accurate analysis of the diesel generator to prevent issues that might affect the service of the emergency power system. The Bernini Design's Generator Remote Monitoring Equipment drastically reduces the operating costs and maintenance. The Be2KP controller, for example, is a sophisticated 3-phase power monitor that provides a wide range of data about the status and quality of AC power and ancillary equipment. When an outage does occur, service personnel can be dispatched to the power generator site with important information regarding what problems they may encounter. The generator remote monitoring equipment plays an important role in reducing communication network outages caused by generator troubles: you can modify the setting of the engine or generator in order to avoid severe damage to the system. We supply standard product or tailor made solutions.

 HOW TO SETUP A GSM GENERATOR REMOTE MONITORING SYSTEM; HOW TO LOGIN & LOGOUT
GSM Generator Remote Monitoring System SMS Syntax Tutorial

HOW TO SET UP THE COMMUNICATIONS

The first thing to do is to setup the MODEM. You can find detailed instructions in this link. But just for your reference there you are the short form guide:

[1] Insert the SIM card into your modem (remove the PIN on it)

[2] Connect Be1 GSM Panel supply to the engine battery.

After setting up the hardware you are required to setup the MODEM with your phone number by sending the following message:

BE1*PHONE NUMBER#

After sending this message you will receive a message with this content:

BE1 OK

At this point the modem knows your phone number. It will send all information when required. In case of alarms or notifications, for example. It will send messages that include information requested by you (voltage & current of the generator for example). We recommend that you limit the access to your system. Anyone who knows the MODEM SIM CARD number can potentially pay access to your system. Follow the instructions:

- insert a password into the generator controller

-change the default name of the controller.

After that, every time you send  a command that control the generator, the controller will ask your credentials (so called LOGIN procedure).

HOW TO LOGIN

We recommend that you limit the access to the controller by using a password (see the user manual of the Be1 controller). In this case, all the time you send an SMS that activates particular functions, the BE1 will require a login procedure. This is the SMS syntax:

[NAME] [LOGIN] [XXXX]

[NAME] name of the controller (default = BE1)

[LOGIN] command LOGIN

[XXXX] Be1 generator controller password

After sending the above message, the BE124 controller will send the following confirmation SMS:

[NAME] [Remote commands enabled]

HOW TO LOG OUT

After finishing your activity, we recommend that you LOGOUT. The SMS syntax is the following:

[NAME] [LOGOUT]

[NAME] name of the controller (default = BE124)

[LOGOUT] command LOGOUT

After sending the above message the Be124 will send you this message:

[NAME] [Remote commands disabled]

In this tutorial we explain the SMS syntax. The basic SMS command syntax is:

[NAME] [COMMAND]

[NAME] is the ‘name’ of the controller. In case you use the Be1 controller the default [NAME] (in other words the name when the controller is used for the first time) is [BE1]. The purpose of the name is to provide security of the communications. As a matter of fact, you can change the name at any time (example [MYBE1] or [HOME GENERATOR]). Only an SMS that matches the name in the memory of the Be1 can be taken into consideration by the system. SMS commands with different [NAME] will be ignored. In this tutorial you will find how to change the [NAME].

[COMMAND] is the name of the command to be executed by the generator controller. For example [STOP] (it stops the engine). The following table lists the available commands for the BE124 generator controller. Please note that you can use upper or lower case letters: [STOP], [stop] or [Stop] have the same function.

Command Description
engine test Starts the engine (*)
genset test Starts the engine and closes the GCB (*)
stop Stops the engine, opens GCB if closed (*)
status Requests the status of the controller together with miscellaneous information
alarm Requests the list of all active alarms
genv Requests generator voltage, current and frequency
genp Requests generator power
engine Requests engine instruments
clear Clears the alarms (*)
gcb Toggles the generator circuit breaker (*)
off Sets the remote emergency shutdown (*)

(*) these commands work only if the Be1 generator controller is in AUTO mode of operation

 GSM GPRS TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

GSM, briefly and commonly called 2G, is based on the division of the spectrum with the "Time-Division Multiple-Access" method. This standard issued at European level is common to associated European nations to facilitate roaming and share technological developments. In other words, the various operators in the sector, although of different nationalities, shared the same technological language. The hardware used was similar and easily adaptable from a functional and software point of view. However, before reaching a European agreement there was a troubled history of bilateral and 'multi-lateral' agreements. After the Copenhagen agreement of 1987, signed by the main 'players' in the sector, 2G has become a MANDATORY STANDARD CONTROLLED BY EUROPEAN RULES. Since 1990, SMS messaging was in common use with an avalanche of ROAMING agreements between the various GSM service providers. The successful GSM model has been exported and used to other operators around the world. The development has always been promoted by the main European nations, including Italy. 2G (or GSM) is however very limited for the performance required today.

EVOLUTION OF GSM IN THE WORLD

The climax of 2G (GSM) included over 75% of the world's operators. An estimated 3-4 billion users today can benefit from SMS, FAX, and TELEPHONY services on cellular networks using the SIM system (phone card). The reserved bands, according to the countries, are in the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 1900MHz range. Although 2G is the most popular, GSM performance has reached its limit for today's requests. Many non-EU operators are scrapping the GSM network in favor of 3G and 4G. In some Asian countries, the internal GSM system has been totally alienated since 2017. CHINA recently announced the availability of 5G shortly.

3G 4G 5G ANNOTATIONS

The letter 'G' simply means 'GENERATIONS', while the number identifies the 'TECHNOLOGICAL CATEGORY'. It is a very broad and extremely complex definition. A bit like defining a car with a petrol, diesel, electric, hybrid, diesel-petrol hybrid engine - etc. 3G was introduced to optimize data communications via tablet and smartphone, the standard provides at least 200Kb per second and uses data transmission via 'packets'. In reality, 3G services offer transmission speeds well beyond the minimum required by the standard. The description of the functionality is extremely complex in this context requires knowledge and notions of UMTS, EDGE, CDMA200, GPRS etc. 3G allows video conferencing, TV, GPS applications ensuring high data protection and communication confidentiality. To date, 3G is predominant in some Asian countries with reserved bands above 2000MHz. 4G allows the movement of over 100Mbit per second for stationary devices (e.g. a mobile phone) and up to one GIGA for moving devices (e.g. on-board computer of a train). This allows IP data communications, high definition 3D video, voice over the Internet. In some countries, bands are used once reserved (no longer in the US) for analog video communications (400-800MHz). 5G is a somewhat complex evolution of 4G that allows to meet the needs of the years 2020-2025. These standards are issued by globally recognized and authorized tech sector organizations.
