GenLink® is a remote generator monitoring software package that connects to any generator set equipped with Generac's PowerManager control system. With GenLink, users can monitor multiple systems from a single PC. It allows the user to check site status or a servicing technician to remotely diagnose either a single genset or a Modular Power System (MPS) via direct serial connection, phone line or Ethernet connection.
Connected PCs display continuously updated information from the generator or system controller about each generators operating condition. Input values and operational parameters can be easily viewed using point-and-click menus and status screens. Valuable information such as generator usage data, alarm history and predictive maintenance reminders are easily accessible.
If an alarm occurs, it is immediately displayed on connected remote computers, and the PowerManager control panel can be programmed to immediately send out a call to both the user's and dealer's pagers or cell phones. The dealer can use GenLink to remotely diagnose the problem and modify generator configurations and parameters as needed. The dealer can then dispatch a service truck with the necessary parts to quickly correct the problem.
