What is A Remote Genset Monitoring solution?

A Remote Genset Monitoring solution is a set of hardware & software equipment that allows you to Monitor an Electric Generator (Diesel, gas or other).
With a Bernini Design Remote Genset Monitoring solution you will be able to start and stop the engine from a remote location. In addition you can:

- browse the Engine Instruments
- browse the Generator Instruments
- browse the Fuel Instruments
- read the Generator Power & Energy Measurements
- read the Memory Log Events
- modify settings or adjustable parameters
- read the status of the Maintenance timers
- make miscellaneous functions

What does ‘remote location’ exactly mean?
Any location not necessary limited by distance:

-via RS485 you can connect a computer 1000 meters far away (READ MORE)
-via TCP-IP you can connect a computer to unlimited distance (READ MORE)
-via SMS  or GSM there is no distance limit (READ MORE)

Remote Genset Monitoring Solution Via SMS

Connect the Be124 Genset Controller [6] to a BE16 Module [4] by using an RS485 twisted pair [5] (max. 1000m). Connect the Be16 [4] to a MODEM [2] by using an RS232 cable [3] (max 100m). Run the Bernini Design application on any GSM compatible device [1] to get connected to your generator in real time. In this example, you can monitor your standby generator by using a mobile phone. The Be16 is a communication gateway. It is includes a powerful SMS decoder-encoder. It translates the messages into command for the generating set controller. The system allows double password protection to limit the access to the generator. In case you loose the password you can retrieve your data by providing credentials to the system. GSM MONITORING

Remote Genset Monitoring Solution Via RS485 MODBUS

Connect the BeK3 AMF ATS Controller [6] to a BE16 gateway module [4] by using a RS485 twisted pair cable [5] (max. 1000m). Connect the Be16 [4] to a MODEM [2] by using an RS232 cable [3] (max 10m). Run the Bernini Design application on a GSM compatible device (mobile phone or other) [1] to get connected to your generator in real time. The Be16 is a communication gateway. It includes a powerful SMS decoder-encoder. It translates the messages into commands for the AMF ATS control panel. You can transfer the load to generator or to mains only if the controller is locally in AUTO mode of operation. Otherwise, you will be only able to monitor the system. MODBUS MONITORING

Remote Genset Monitoring Solution Via TCP-IP Server

In this example, you can monitor your standby generator by using INTERNET. You can control the status of the AMF control panel and you can transfer the load to Mains or Generator and vice versa. Connect the BeK3 AMF ATS Controller [5] to a TCP-IP SERVER[4] by using an RS485 twisted pair (max. 1000m). Connect the SERVER [4] to a ROUTER [2] by using an ETHERNET cable [3](max 100m). Run the Bernini Design application on any device connected to INTERNET; a computer, for example ([1]) to get connected to your control panel in real time. By launching 'password protected' commands you will be able to transfer the load by remote, start and stop the power generator.    TCP-IP MONITORING
