Our Generator Remote Monitoring reduces downtime and inefficient operation
At Pleavin Power, we offer the most accurate generator remote monitoring service available. Remotely monitoring the operation of a diesel generator power system can assist in drastically reducing downtime and inefficient operation. This is done VIA our manned 24/7 365 Customer Support Centre. Our team uses the latest telemetry systems as we remotely monitor the operation of a generation – while operating in any application or unmanned location.
Our Customer Support Centre will be alerted to a failure or potential issue relating to the functions of the generator. This is done via an online monitoring portal that grants you real-time information and system statuses.
Therefore, a field-based service engineer is ready to go to the site to ensure that the backup is all set up and running. This results in minimum downtime and inconvenience to the client’s operation or day to day running.
Various controls are also available to monitor the likes of fuel, coolant levels, oil pressure, operating temperatures, battery statuses as well as power outputs. Moreover, the system helps to ensure the smooth running of essential – or backup power without having an engineer on the site to detect the issues.
Should an issue arise, our customer support centre can allow our expert technical support team to gain access remotely. This allows to diagnose issues remotely and advise on the best repair strategy to get back online as soon as possible.
For your generator monitoring needs, contact us today to reduce your downtime and inefficient operations.

Frequently Asked Questions
With advancements in technology, we are now able to monitor generators to ensure they remain as operational as possible. Therefore, what are the key things that you need to monitor remotely with your generator?
There are several key details that you need to review. These are the engine speed – this ensures that the generator is running as normal. We also review the oil pressure which allows us to gain an understanding of whether there is a potential leak. As well as these, we also recommend that you review the temperature of your engine. This can come down to the runtime of the engine – meaning how long it remains operational.
Whilst reviewing your generator with your remote monitoring system, we also recommend that you analyse the voltage, frequency and power output of your power generator. These are the key things we suggest you review with your remote generator monitoring system. Should you be unsure as to how you monitor the above, we will assist you with our generator remote monitoring services.
If you own a specific generator, you might have noticed that there is a remote system option. But what does remote mean on a generator? This enables you to take control of your radiator, even if you are in a far location like halfway around the world for example. Remote monitoring will allow you to run a complete engine and transfer switch tests. As well as monitoring readiness status, intermittent alarms and other crucial tasks without having to make a trip to the worksite.
We are often asked, what is a remote generator monitoring system? In essence, a remote generator monitoring system is a device that you connect to your generator and through the use of supplied sensors, or utilising sensors that are already installed onto your generator – you can monitor the wellbeing of your generator.
The remote monitoring system allows you to analyse the fuel levels and overall wellbeing – allowing you to prepare for any preventive maintenance for your generator in real-time.
