Power System Remote Monitoring & Control
through the Internet


Remotely start a generator and monitor its run status, temperature, power output and more using a standard web browser!

Remotely start and stop generator, control transfer switch, monitor utility power status, and generator power status. In addition, monitor generator's engine block, coolant, and ambient temperatures, and fuel tank level. This system can be retrofit to existing standby power systems since it does not rely on any engine controller.  This controller has a built-in web server that allows you to access the control pages from any location in the world using a standard web browser, computer, or smart phone.

This monitoring system is fully customizable by user and can be used as a data acquisition system for virtually any purpose.

Detailed Explanation

In the above example, a relay in the controller is connected to the generator's start contact for remote generator start/stop. A "Run Status" output signal from the generator is connected to an input of the controller, and temperature sensors are connected to the engine coolant and ambient air for remote monitoring.

Other options are utility and generator voltage monitoring, transfer switch control, and more. All of these parameters can be remotely controlled and monitored using a web browser or email/text alerts can be set up for abnormal conditions. The controller can be used to measure actual values (rather than just on/off status) such as utility and generator output voltage, frequency, current, power, fuel tank level, and more. Virtually any parameter can be measured as long as a transducer is available to convert the analog value to 0-5Vdc.

System is very flexible with user setup screens for customizing the label texts, alarm setpoints and colors on the internal web screen. See sample. In addition, the user can select one or more parameters to be recorded to an internal rolling log file at time intervals as short as every second. This log file can be viewed and downloaded remotely to see event history.

The controller has a built-in web server and all the data it measures can be viewed using a web browser without any software or app to download or purchase, no subscription to buy, and no programming required for setup and use. Even with this simplicity many advanced features are included the ability to create BASIC scripts, SNMP, peer-to-peer communications, email alerts, and full calendar scheduling.
