Remote Generator Monitoring
EMCP3/4 Gateway PLUS™
Gathers data from the CAT® EMCP 3 and 4 series of diesel generators and places the values in contiguous registers. Features include virtual HMI web server, SMTP and SMS mail servers, real-time data logging, ftp server and a sync server
EMCP 3/4 Series Diesel Generator Remote Monitoring
The EMCP 3/4 Gateway PLUS™ is a step up from the Basic version, allowing you to take advantage of remote monitoring through the HMI web server. This Gateway also has SMTP and SMS mail servers, real-time data logging, an ftp server to retrieve data log files and a sync server to automatically sync log files with an IP connected computer. Full text descriptions for Diagnostic Codes are available.
The virtual HMI capability makes viewing live data simple through the use of the Google Chrome® Web Browser. Access is a simple as entering the correct IP Address. The web pages come pre-configured for basic data or can be custom built, and our free MonicoView II™ software can be used to create your own custom pages or to modify and customize the factory default pages.
As with this Gateway’s Basic version, set up is plug and play in most cases for a qualified technician with basic computer skills. Mounting is din-rail and 24 VDC power is required. Most set up needs and small customizations a customer may require can be dome in the field with our free MonicoView II™ software and are a simple task. If support is needed, this website has downloadable product support files that are easy to follow, or Monico’s Technical Support staff is a phone call or email away.
EMCP3/4 Gateway PLUS for Generator Remote Monitoring System
Because of the wide range of uses of the equipment, many of these generators are in remote locations. The EMCP3/4 Gateway PLUS provides the ability to remotely monitor and control these generators from any location. The email server is programmable to send email and SMS alerts to notify personnel of warnings and shutdowns. In addition, data from other devices within your diesel remote monitoring system can be converted and recorded on the same data map or made accessible through many other protocols through available ports.
As stated above, the PLUS version of this Gateway takes basic version’s abilities much farther. The real-time data logging feature has proven extremely valuable for troubleshooting tough problems that require continuous real-time data from the engine and connected equipment. The Gateway will accept up to a 2 GB Flash card that can store log files for 80 parameters every three seconds over approximately 200 days. These log files are stored in CSV formats for easy import into Microsoft Excel. The trend and historical data provided by this feature are extremely important for high value industrial equipment to provide high-fidelity troubleshooting history for accurate diagnostics. Even if you have a high bandwidth SCADA system, the on-board industrial data logger can serve as a critical backup in case of communications link failure.
