The full range of JCB QS diesel generators can now be supplied with JCB LiveLink, a global telematics monitoring and diagnostic system. JCB LiveLink for diesel generators allows the monitoring of equipment in real time remotely from any office, making them ideal for fleet managers, especially in the rental sector. This prevents low fuel situations, ensures timely service work can be scheduled at exactly the right time and the system also acts as a tracking unit, warning customers of unplanned movement of machinery and acting as a very strong theft deterrent. The JCB LiveLink system can also monitor activation of the emergency stop system, overcoming the most common service call-out issue for many companies, saving time and cost while maintaining uptime.
JCB LiveLink also allows fleet managers to access the load history of a particular generator, to determine how efficiently a machine is being used – this clearly has major fuel usage implications. Additionally, LiveLink provides information on how long the generator is run light loaded and also fully loaded, to help the customer determine how effective the generator is in a particular application. This allows the company to change to an alternative generator if necessary, saving money and preventing damage to the generator itself.
As well as the load statistics, LiveLink provides access to phase load information; this can be monitored and recorded to show the loading of a specific phase.
