This generator comprehensive monitoring system provides information about the generator’s engine (RPM, boost and oil pressure, oil and coolant temperature, voltage, fuel rate, and engine hours depending on the particular engine) and it provides information about the electrical generator (voltage, current, frequency, and power). The 8” touchscreen monitors all the information and sounds the external buzzer if any parameter goes out of range. The data recorder gives a complete record of all monitored parameters with the GPS200 providing reference positions and times.

The following table shows the products included within this example system plus a list of the information or data available for display.

Product Description Available Data List
