WHAT IS GENERATOR REMOTE MONITORING?
Generator remote monitoring checks, from a remote location, all parameters that may affect the service of the emergency power system. Bernini Design provides generator remote monitoring equipment located within the site. A typical application is a standby generator for critical applications like hospitals or shelters.

HOW GENERATOR MONITORING WORK?
A generator remote monitoring is the action to control and monitor a power generator set from a remote location via GSM, TCP/IP, or Modbus. The basic concept is to virtually transfer the control panel remotely. In other words, you have a generator placed in Argentina, but from your office in Australia, you will act as being in front of the generator. Bernini Design provides a generator remote monitoring equipment, hardware, and software, to manage a Diesel Generator placed in a Base Transceiver Base. It is about a shelter or a building that includes fundamental equipment that allows wireless communication between the user equipment and a network. The user equipment is devices like mobile phones, tablets, radio equipment, computers, and so on. This includes wireless Internet connectivity.
The purpose of Bernini Design's Generator Monitoring Equipment is to reduce the operating costs for maintenance. When an outage does occur, service personnel can be dispatched with valuable information regarding what problems they may encounter on-site. A Generator remote Monitoring Equipment plays an important role in preventing and reducing network outages caused by generator troubles. You can set pre-alarms and you can modify the settings of the engine or generator. This will avoid severe damage to the system. The Generator remote Monitoring Equipment can monitor the parameters of the utility power to the site, rectifiers & batteries, air conditioner, and other hybrid power types of energy sources. Bernini Design offers a variety of accessories to manage power at your remote diesel generator via GSM, TCP-IP, or MODBUS. This page presents the diesel generator monitoring systems that will allow you an efficient control & monitoring system via TCP-IP, GSM-SMS, and MODBUS.
TCP/IP GENERATOR REMOTE MONITORING
Bernini Design provides TCP-IP-based diesel generator remote monitoring equipment. The diesel generator plays an important role in case of a 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 systems drastically reduce operating costs and maintenance. When an outage does occur, service personnel can be dispatched to the power generator site with important information regarding what problems they may encounter. By using our TCP-IP server you built a state-of-art real-time internet-based monitoring system. Our TCP-SERVER features all hardware security components to prevent
You are required to connect the TCP-IP SERVER to the ROUTER by using an ETHERNET cable. You have to use the RS485 cable to connect the TCP-IP SERVER to a Bernini Design generator controller. The RS485 connection allows up to 1000m distance between the generator controller and TCP-IP SERVER. Both types of equipment can be connected to the engine battery. The power consumption of the TCP-IP SERVER is only 100mA when operating at full speed. The module can operate in a wide temperature range of -25 up to 70 degrees Celsius. Follow the steps in the user manual to configure the TCP-IP SERVER.
GSM GENERATOR REMOTE MONITORING
The diesel generator remote monitoring via SMS is the most simple, user-friendly monitoring solution. Firstly it is particularly used when Fuel Level monitoring is an important issue. This is the case for mobile operators in areas subjected to prolonged power outages. The generators are always located in remote places. Secondly, fast-responding remote equipment together with good diesel fuel sensing devices can prevent theft and will allow you a better scheduler of refuel visits. This will prevent the shutdown of a remote site due to running out of fuel. The Be142, Be124, Be2KP, and BeK3 generator controllers feature a programmable automatic 'FUEL CHANGE' notification. The GENcom 40 captures in real-time the information flowing on the RS485 bus and sends an immediate notification via SMS. Being a cost-effective product you can use the Be16 Kit in various applications where remote START-STOP commands are required.
Direct MODBUS communication is the easiest way to control and monitor a diesel generator. Connect the MOD-BUS to the USB converter to a Bex xx generator controller by using a twisted pair cable. A Bex xx controller (in the picture a Be124 generator controller) can drive a cable as long as 1000 meters. Then, connect a computer with a USB interface. Run the Bex xx application software to connect the computer to the generator. We provide free-of-charge software for remote monitoring suitable for BE142, BEK3, and BE124 generator controllers.

BATTERY VOLTAGE MONITORING
When it comes to critical standby applications, monitoring the status of the battery is mandatory. Without an efficient battery, your standby generator will not start. We can support you with battery monitoring relays. We offer stand-alone systems or GSM-based low-battery monitoring systems.
